Around the City

So I hear the time that we missed had something to do with the mines down
there. No lie. We're lucky that Lyal was down there and that
the rest of the scouts were away from the city, or we might have been trapped
forever. That could have been horrible, don't you think?
Did you hear what Vharachthe did to that poor husband of hers? No,
I don't even dare repeat it. And Nalole helped. That young man
just gets more and more eccentric, I tell you what.
The Dwarves that have come to trade with us have looked like they had something
else on their minds lately. Maybe I'm just imagining things, but I
get the impression that something is up that they aren't sure that they can
Have you heard those terrible howls in the distance? I was sitting
up one night and heard it across the plains. Probably just wolves hunting
before Winter, but it certainly was scary.
Have you heard anything about Rahlon Deathknell and Eslheim? The two
of them just up and vanished not too long ago. Maybe they're just going
on a honeymoon or something, and went off. Rahlon is supposed to be
a wizard of some skill after all. I don't know, but it is kind of odd.
Are our sewers really safe? I swear I hear things down there at night,
while I'm trying to sleep. Nolith swears up and down that he built
the tunnels too tight for things to get through, but there could be just
about anything underneath us and we'd never know.
It's the year of Skydancer again, I guess we've come full circle in the time
we've been here. I hear that there's a stalemate on the Arkandite front,
and nobody's leaving or fighting. I don't think that any refugees can
get by on the isthmus anymore, so any we get will be by boat.
