Update: Seems like there was just a round of bad timing on my end, so rescheduling the session for another day in hopes it works better for people's schedules. New date is set for Oct 15th at the same time.
Over the year much of the news of some of the more common crimes around seemed to be pretty standard for the city of Ramsalon. However sometimes there is an undercurrent for the reasoning of their doings, sometimes hiding behind the enterprise of others, or perhaps they go unreported for many reasons.
Though recently some of that activity has started a more notable pattern. A surge in particular of break ins around the Beth Bow and some of the more isolated parts of the city. As well as a curious climb of children being taken in those areas as well, and from some of the farm house just outside the walls. In many cases it has gone unnoticed as some of the children have been returned, but others their fates remain unknown.
However an escalation seems to be happening as in some of these cases bodies are now being found. The guards have dedicated what manpower they have to try and resolve it, but the people don't seem to want to give any information about their would be protectors, especially as some of the bodies bear marks identifying them as mage hunters.
But as time goes on, much of this activity seems suspiciously increasing around a certain gnome's investigation operations within Beth Bow..
There is gonna be some combat, and talking. Its kind of a mix, may go one way or the other pending whom shows up.
As with combat there is the risk of character death so be prepared.
If interested in finding out more about the circumstances leading up to this session, feel free to do a speculative scene to investigate. There are some bits in there to find.
This is related to the Fae kid thing, and Crimson's stuff.
