DAUGHTERS BORN OF EVENING STAR



MARNATH UL-ORYAN NESEPIX'S DISAPPEARANCE:

The Guard is currently investigating the disappearance of Marnath ul-Oryan Nesepix. After the third tournament, witnesses say that Nesepix was seen fleeing the anouncer's box looking exceptionally nervous. While the Guard is investigating his disappearance, they cannot confirm or deny any details. There are Rumours abound suggesting that he fled a gambling debt with Ware Folthek, a notorious bookie in the Back Alley.

Days after his disappearance a note was seen pinned to his door, but a maid took it down and later brought it to the Guardhouse. Though we tried, we could not get any further details surrounding this developing story. Stay tuned for future publications from your trusted Rumormill staff in regards to this developing story.


TOURNAMENT OF MARTIAL SKILL RESULTS AND FINAL

After a long, hard battle between Elan Tedronai, armed with dual daggers and William Ka'ana'ana, armed with a kuntham, our hometown boy, bounty hunter Tedronai was declared the winner! In the next round, Ravynetti Tivaurd, well known demilich and necromancer of Millakamrath fought hard against both the anti-magic field in the arena and against the Isska, Rriss Pehn. The two 'men' went straight for blood and battled with claws and weapons until only one was left standing. Tivaurd beat the Isska against all odds.

After some scheduling issues, the organizers of the Tournament of Martial Skill decided to move around some of the matches. The Emshi nomad, khial al-Amas'kyaa from Najjir ended up facing the recent Drow newcomer to Drache, Divolvir DeVir. The fight went on through several exchanges of blows and amazingly, the Emshi woman defeated the Drow- probably without even breaking a sweat. With the last of the preliminary matches, and many scheduling difficulties, the final bout was held between Alderic Baudin and Tayah Rivenspire. The knight seemed well matched with the cavalry captain, but it was he that in the end, claimed the victor's laurels. Both participants fought hard and the young, unknown man was clearly favoured by luck, knocking out the hometown girl.

The match between Ravynetti Tivaurd and Alderic Baudin was one full of unexpected surprises. Tivaurd took an early lead in the bout, and seemed poised to win, when a lucky stroke by Baudin evened the damage. The bout went on longer than perhaps the demilich had expected it would, and the anti magic field had taken its toll. Ending the match, Tivaurd's form was reduced to ashes, while healers came running afield to check on our living participant.

Baudin advances to the finals, and his opponent will be the Emshi warrior, Khial al-Amas'kyaa.


DAUGHTERS BORN OF EVENING STAR:

For those mothers expecting a girl-birth during the month of Evening Star: we have it on good authority that your daughter is likely to be discreet, affable and much liked. It goes to say that she will be surrounded by friends and will have many who desire to confide in her as she grows older. Take pride in your daughters born of Evening Star, mothers and rest calmly fathers as they will be the easiest to raise. If ever there was a truth to daughters being an easy child to bring up.
