- An apparent break-in occurred at the Mage Tower's academic library, in Xalious, during the night, in which two books were stolen from the restricted section. Students doing some late-night studying reported hearing disruptive noises shortly before enchanted alarms were triggered - the main culprits appear to be three drow, one of whom was a mage himself and knocked down a good few book cases in the ensuing chaos and escape. A fermin with a large book was thought to be spotted fleeing the scene as well. Three mages in training were killed, while two suffered minor wounds after being trapped beneath the falling book cases.
- December 16
- There has been a mass murdering of every man, woman, child, waiter, and chef within the Kelay Resteraunt. The only notice of what creature had done such damage is a board posting in the Kelay Tavern, stating that it was a "foul beast" which had done the crime. A bounty of 20,000 gold has been put upon the head of whatever beast had done such a foul deed.
- November 23
- An elven woman and a Preklek had gotten into a fight within the Kelay Tavern over an offending note the fiesty elf had posted upon the tavern's board. The Preklek had overpowered the woman and now has her held as his captive. Should her ransom not be paid off in 3 days the Preklek will be having the elf open to third party bidders. On an extra note, the tavern's door had been pinned shut by the Preklek, so many may have found the need to enter through the hole in the Southern wall, or through a window. As well there are damages around the shop, though nothing immense.
- October 4

Citizens are advised to exercise caution in their travels, and to report suspicious activity by strangers to the relevant authorities.

- An elven patrol in Sage failed to report back this morning. Further investigation found five of the six rangers at the far southwest corner of the forest, skinned and hanged. The sixth ranger has not yet been found.

- One of the barmaid of Kelay tavern was found dead... according to witnesses as the corpse itself was unrecognizable at the Underdark early evening today.
- Early evening today, a very loud... howling? even those who heard it doesn't know what to call it, it sounded like a cow dying but it was far louder and... unnatural, especially with the sound of metal clanking around while large trees fall down by the forest. The next day, villagers from the city close to the area was sent to investigate, but only one was able to return alive. He said that a large beast incinerated the others. When they went to the forest again, the beast was gone.

- October 21
- The body of a middle-aged human male was discovered in a back alley of Kelay today, along with the bodies of two prostitutes. Another corpse, this time of a lone woman, was found in a separate location, on the outskirts of town; all four victims died via blood loss via the enormous, violent slash wounds across their hearts and throats. Authorities believe the murders to have been committed by a single person due to the similarities of each victim's deaths, the various evidence left at each crime scene, and the apparent time slot both murders took place in. At the first scene, the word 'abandoned' was found painted on the alley wall in the blood of the victims', while at the second, what seemed to be the word 'forgotten' was discovered written around the body - again, in their own blood. Also found at each location were strangely-shaped bootprints; extending from the tip of each boot is the shape of a long, flat object, presumably a knife. As evidence has yet to lead toward any particular suspects and no one has turned themselves in, the killer is still at large.

- A soft rumble can be felt within the lands of Sage as a brilliant green light shines out from deep within the ancient Druid temples before washing over the entire forest in a warm peaceful wave. The question of what caused the rumble is soon answered as the ancient branches of the eternal tree rise higher into the sky than ever before, growing before the very eyes of the druids and rangers of the land below as they gaze upon its powerful form with awe. It appears recent events have stirred its powers. The Eternal Tree’s Broadened branches appear stronger almost muscular. All around the sacred temple roots from the tree explode from the dampened soil exposing the tree’s ancient form buried deep below the earth. The ancient spirits of the forest have been roused...
