    The Game of Intrigue: News and Rumors - September 2011

    Rumors are often just that. Rumors. But even cheap tavern gossip bears with it a single grain of truth.

    These are the rumors being exchanged in establishments throughout Britannia and the Border Kingdoms. You are invited to build on this list.

    A band of filthy, unkept Orcs were seen prowling the streets of Luna this weekend.

    Being a city outside the hegemony of Britain, the Greenskins went about their business unmolested and offered no hostility in turn ...save for their offending stench and threatening glares.

    But the the group did seem to be planning something. Whispering amongst themselves. Pointing and glaring at various 'hummiez.' Purchasing weapons and armor. And given recent events in Western Britain and Skara Brae, there is some concern over the presence of these Orcs and what they might have planned for Malas.​

    Ifan Shafiri - the Prime Minister of Umbra - has gone missing.

    The nature of his disappearance remains unknown. But sources close to House Shafiri claim the aging patriarch had been partaking in various illicit substances and chemicals. Perhaps in an attempt to restore his youth.

    Shafiri is described as a man of average height (though tall amongst the Umbral), slight build, silver hair and dark skin. He wears green robes, often with the hood up, and possesses a ghastly scar on his nose, an injury inflicted upon him by a member of House Seiren.

    A replacement for the Prime Minister is currently being sought.

    Sister Frances, Tari Tiwele and the Slug were spotted guarding the Sea Witch Tavern from assault this last weekend.

    It appears the enigmatic A - still concerned with revenge against the Magincians - remains at large.

    In response the Magincians have begun forming a militia of their own. But this has stoked fears in Britain that the Magincians is massing for a war with the recovering Kingdom.​

    If you want to be an Umbrian aristocrat, by all means write up a curriculum vitae and send it in. They're so desperate that they'll take anybody with at least two limbs* and a head containing a brain or some other form of thinking device.

    *or alternately, a physically functional gastropod

    And if you see Ifan, please tell him to come home, Alouenikah is very worried about him.
