Rumors Board

The rumors board is where we keep all the unexplored rumors in town, both originating from information exchanged in the tavern, and provided by the official Adventurer’s Guild. If you find the rumors appealing, head over to the Tavern on Discord and start assembling your party.

Here, you can add new information you’ve found while playing in the East Marches as a rumor, so that other adventurers can follow it up. Please be aware that for now the rumors are entered manually, so it could be a couple of days before the admins can update the existing list.

Golden Hive (Edward Clingham told this tale over a pint, in the Sneaky Tentacle Pub)“Let me ask you all a question. Have you ever heard the story of the Queen of Golden Skies, the fabled matriarch of the golden hives far up on an east facing summit in the Krestmar Peaks? It has been said that her hives, instead of honey, produce vast amounts of pure liquid gold. Well I tell you, I’ve just returned from that very hive, I have” He takes a giant swig from his tankard and continues, “Oh by the old gods, I have a story to tell ya, I do”An east facing summit in the Krestmar Peaks

If you see no rubble on the ground and the grass is evenly distributed everywhere, you will be there. You are at the Symmetry Fields. The Order of the Seraphim is looking for a group of adventurers to seek the source of this symmetry. We suspect it might be harmful in nature and could be spreading. There will be a grand reward.Follow the river north for half a day, and bend to the east there

Their death comes at a time where the growth of whispers surrounding the towns late beloved priest of Nzatre, Ilnya, died of unnatural means, means brought about by someone for a price.

Bold kobolds (Krugu)A coal mine, north of the city, has reported a breach in the tunnels. It seems a band of Kobolds have dug through and are now trying to occupy the mine to make it part of their underground network.

An abandoned town (Feanor)Poor Lord Malekaven! He invested a lot of gold back in the empire into buying the ownership and title of a large plot of land on a possible trade route. Not only did he buy a fake ownership and title, but the ruins of the town on that location are infested with all kinds of monsters.
I’ll tell you more about the monsters for a mere 20 gp, and for 50 gp more I’ll even draw you a map.

The jungle keep (Saigo)“Where the raven roams
The tribesmen go meet their end
Is there more than death?”
Deep in the jungle stands a forgotten keep surrounded by a town. The place seems to be swarming with strange creatures and other dangers, but there is also treasure to be had. Should the place ever be cleared it would make for a fine settlement. It is suggested to contact Lord Melekalven, as he might be willing to fund another expedition. Should you want more information come find me in the tavern.
