Apparently on other shards they tell of raiders in the towns and rioters in the streets. On Siege, when you ask a town herald for "news" you get "I have no news at this time" (!) I just spent a lot of turn in points to get 5 Sherry the Mouse statues - so I could keep abreast of the developments from my homes. But apparently no one bothered to switch our heralds over to the new event. We have the rioters. I have neither seen nor heard of anyone seeing any raiders. And there is no news to be had from Sherry or the town heralds.
