For the last several cycles the winged figure Samcroi 'Moth" has been seen moving her belongings into a dwelling in the Stalactite District. Between this and her frequent explorations of the local tunnels and cave systems the woman sits on a balcony in that district to watch the coming and goings and general activities of the Svirfneblin below.

One deep gnome in the Stalagmite District keeps a cautious distance from the new winged inhabitant to the Svirfneblin residences. However, seemingly unperturbed, he keeps to his usual business of comings and goings carrying sacks of mushrooms or boxes of bottled liquids creeping in and out of shadowy crevices.

Over the course of the last few cycles, M'elzar Tebryn can be witnessed conducting various small scale experiments outside the Sorcere. They consist of a series of stones carved with draconic runes in a circle formation surrounding a central pillar carved with the same runes.

With the casting of various elemental spells, the effects vary, the most extreme being the outer stones exploding which simply bounce off Tebryns shield spell. Muttering curses under his breath he returns to his papers making small adjustments.

In the pathways and holdings of both the lizardfolk and the svirfneblin, a lone Drow has been spotted attacking the guardians of those small holdings. Rather than taking slaves, the armored figure seems to be far more concerned with killing everything it can get near - screaming praises to Lolth all the while.

Apparently one Drow seems to wish to bring back the idea that the worship of Lolth is as strong and obvious as ever, and to remind the 'Lesser' races that the Drow are still to be remembered in the local Underdark.

M'elzar Tebryn can be seen casually strolling through L'Obsul towards house Zau'tar. Upon reaching the gates he informs the guards that Representative Quevaonar wishes to speak with him. Patiently(?) he would await to be summoned inside.

Rumors are spreading around about the death of Grukk, the famous cyclops mercenary and owner of a famous merchant caravan. He and his caravan got ambushed and massacred on the tradeway through the Labyrinth between Mantol Derith and L'Obsul.

The Zau'tars would invite the drow inside the House until he receives an audience.

The murders in the lizardmen and svirfneblins outside L'Obsul have little impact on the population...except for the Svirfneblins. However, they are way too busy preaching among themselves about their prophecy.

The younger Svirfneblin would find the appearing Gloura fascinating and they place out gifts for her.

Otherwise the Svirfneblins keep mentioning the usual dramatic prophecy: "The Lemendemenispoiradelopth"

Rumors are also spreading around about a conspiracy that causing issues for the trade of the illithid merchants. The illithid merchants are claiming that the matter is under control and the supplies will return to normal soon.

The Duergar Clan Kheledan is seemingly more busy preparing weapons lately. Much the same applies to the Orogs. The Drow of the Zau'tar..if they are doing something then they are doing it more subtly. Members of the house can be seen going on excursions on their lizards.

The winged figure Samcroi would be seen delightedly picking up these little gifts, turning them this way and that, playing with them in the glow of the faerzress lights and making incomprehensible designs with the gifts by placing them in abstract patterns about her. Sitting amidst such artful designs she often sits, taking out her cave harp, and plays hauntingly lovely melodies.

It was not just a one-time thing, it seemed. There was an old face returned to the L'obsul and subterranean area around it. She was seen in dark plates and purple swaths of cloth, with antique and unpolished rings upon her fingers. If one dared to look, the female drow traveler had a sharp-featured face that some might remember common to the noble line of the Tinnerai House, which once was rather feared in these parts.

For those who might remember her, Elvinna'dris had come back. For those who didn't, it was a thing to note. A female drow in plates. Most likely one of those dark priestesses..

She accompanied a few males on their L'obsul Sorcere dealings and lingered around the Deepcoin market, mostly, drinking blood wine and lurking with her dark red gaze.

One of the Druids of the Underdark has reportedly been seen moving from Thran'daariv and L'Obsul. He usually hauls Rothe meat towards Thran'daariv, returning to L'Obsul empty handed afterwards.

He rarely stays within the City however, apparently preferring to delve into the dangerous depths of the Lower Dark. His only pauses come when the Druid witnesses someone suffering from virulent disease or the odd poisoned animal here or there - whereupon he either cures them outright, or makes note of what ails them - keeping to some sort of strict balance to ensure that any pox that might riddle the poor and destitute within L'Obsul does not overly ravage their ranks.

A kobold and a red dragonkin moved into the Northwest House, their "sorcere" building, with 18 corpses of Duergar. They took them to one of the upper rooms in the house, where the kobold then saw to setting them about for preservation and experimentation. He's sure to leave an undead servant watching them at all times. The kobold sorcerer seems very enthusiastic about his work....

For about a week ro 2 now, a large Orog with a low and deep Grunting voice has landed in the city of L'Obsul, clearly made a camp just outside in the lower dark. he is dressed in red and black robes with bones and skulls to decorate or maybe connect to the spirits of his kin, as they all seem to be from large Orc origin. He carries a staff with a large Orc skull on it and glowing red gems in the eye sockets. Most of the time a he uses his hood to cast a shadow over his face, but with some luck or effort, one can see large pale eyes with a slight red iris.

He frequent leaves again for trade or other reasons, but always returns with many goods he sells to supply the market of the upper L'Obsul, Many fresh and random goods of various values. And if not spotted with this he is crafting items at the forge or mythal forge

Often he is also easily spoted with maps areas of the underdark, from all levels, and with this one can indicate he is well travelled in the dark, and knows how to find his way.

As per today, he has requested a meeting with the local leader of the Orog clan/merc company ((AKA Lutra!?))

After a revealing meeting just in front of the hall of negotiation, The Orog on red and bones, is seen going around the city following rumours .. at this stage is is not directly questioning people just listening and looking, for now.

At some point he seems to leave for the docks, and taking a trip to Thran'daariv.. after he returned with fresh information.. but also a bit smoking.. clearly it was a rough but productive trip.

After a long rest in his camp, that for some reason is much better protected by various means then befor, the Orog heads off to the Svirfneblin quarters.

A variety of drow and other evil appearing creatures make their way in and out of the fortified house just by the lower lift exit in L'Obsul for many human days.

Most notable are a Yathtallar and her bodyguard a red dragon warrior. There are also various other drow of everything from noble to slave caste, what appears to be a half blood drow, and a few mongrels of various kinds that come in and out again and again. Some are noted to have vastly improved gear on exit.

There are also a number of bodies (most are human) carried into the residence at various times, some of which walk out later alive again, some of which do not.

A well-built dark-haired male red dragon disciple can indeed be seen accompanying the Yathtallar.

Attentive folks might have noticed his discomfort when he first entered L'Obsul. However, in recent days the discomfort seems to be completely gone. If anything, he seems to enjoy it!

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been hints of him becoming more and more devoted to the Yathtallar's cause. Nowadays, apparently fully loyal to the Yathtallar, he eyes her enemies with a cold gaze, and if they press the issue, his gaze tends to turn into fire rather quickly.

An Strange female half drow on dark clothes have been seen in the company of the High Priestess (Cestdeavenix) and a Red winged male (Ciaran).

She has been seen her putting a tied goblin outside, getting wood and placing it for a crucifixion.

A day in L'Obsul like any other. A goblin (those who know him would recognize him as Rotgash) was sitting at one of the tables near the market square when he was approached by the high priestess Cestdeavenix and her two companions - the red dragon warrior Ciaran and a mysterious half-drow dressed in dark clothing, Miz'ri.

It did not take long and fisticuffs erupted between the goblin and the red dragon warrior. Outmatched, the goblin was restrained and carried into a nearby house.

Those close enough to the house could perhaps hear faint nondistinct shouts of three different voices. A commanding Drow voice, a goblin voice, and a deep human-ish one.

After some time, Miz'ri could have been seen running out and returning with some wood.

Some moments later, the dead body of the goblin was carried out into the streets strung up on a wooden cross, with the following sign neatly mounted on the cross:

"Thought himself too good to kneel before Yathtallar Cestdeavenix"

in three different languages, Drow, goblin, and undercommon. The cross was then erected in the middle of the street for all to see.

Out from a portal on L'Obsuls lower levels Essedeavenix, Yathtallar Cestdeavenix's younger sister, can be seen arriving dragging a young drow female with her. The young prisoner tries to resist but as if grabbed by an invisible force she gets dragged of to the Yathtallar's house. Esse walks in and closes the door.

After several hours the door opens and out comes Esse, dragging the corpse of the young drowess, not far behind walks the Yathtallar herself, overseeing the situation. Esse places the corpse on a wooden cross placed on the ground, nails it to the cross and together the Drow sisters erect the cross next to the one with the goblin on it.

Esse then nails a note to the chest of the young drowess, but after a few harsh words from the Yathtallar she pulls it out and nails it to the cross instead...

Two winged figures appear to stop and chat at the bazaar in L'Obsul, speaking in quiet and curious whispers. Many seemed to refer to them as the "moth" people; songs in the shadows, dances in the dark. Before long, they head off toward deeper layers of the Underdark, brandishing both magic and weapons in a short but sweet escapade through the Ogre caverns.

A blurred shadow drifts slowly about the edges of sparsely inhabited areas... fading in and out of sight. Echoed , deep tones.. mutter.Half heard by those near, Diabolic speech, so heavily accented as to be nearly..unintelligible. The words "Gone... Deep...Rise.." is all that may be heard, by those quickly turning heads , catching the edge of dissipating haze curling against the stones..

Another note is added below the first and a set of blood stained piercings are added as well. The note say's

A drow female has been noticed in L'Obsul, wandering aimlessly in the city itself and nearby caverns. She seems to be searching for something, but what, is unclear. No one has recognized her, but she walks with age, as though having had a long and miserable life.

Her armor is beaten and battered, not significant except a dark red right gauntlet. Speaking to none but merchants, she rents a small house in the city and continues her daily walks, searching...

From a boat anchored in a secluded inlet, a young drowess surveyed the scene before her through steely eyes. The ruins of a once proud society littered the shoreline. The stench was almost overwhelming, at least to her nose. She would think to herself, “It is probably beyond reclamation, but not revenge...” She would gaze at the fortifications as the boat gently tossed to and fro, a plaything of the current. “Boatman, I have seen enough...” The boatman, quick to comply, began to make way and navigate the quickest route back to the L'Obsul waterfront. His passenger struck fear in his heart and made the steadiest of sea legs tremble. In his haste, he would misjudge the current causing the boat to toss violently. The drowess grabbed for a firm hold upon the gunwale with whitened knuckles. Should the boat capsize, the weight of her armor would pull her under, never to be seen again. For a long moment, it all hung in the balance: A razor thin line between life and death. She felt no fear, because faith was her constant companion. “If Lolth wants me to die here, in sight of an abject lesson concerning the loss of favor, so be it”, she would think to herself. The small craft eventually righted itself and the now pale and trembling boatman returned them to shore by the slowest route he could devise, all to aware of the suffering that awaited him on dry land

Troubling rumours from traders visiting the city have concerning news. They speak of Orcs, Goblinoids and others launching raids on Drow Enclaves and Duergar clanholds across the Northdark, and through it all, the tales of a large armoured figure riding a giant worg. Already, refugees come from one of L'Obsul's trade partners, a small drow mercantile enterprise specializing in alchemical preparations.

In the face of this, the powers that be have decided that they will meet to discuss how to best prepare L'Obsul for this. The Council has arranged a meeting and will announce their decision to the population of L'Obsul following the meeting. However, each of the factions has their own way of dealing with the news before hand. The House Zau'tar and the Duergar can be seen undergoing various military preparations, with additional patrols being made. The Svirfneblin are often seen in little huddles, discussing the rumors in quiet whispers, whilst additional excavations can be heard from within the Kobold warrens. Finally, the Orogs redouble their mining efforts, the toiling within the Gulag becoming even more unbearable than usual.

Despite the rumours, most of the population is not worried yet. After all, It is just an normal warlord, isn't it?

OOCRunning 2 Events and then will allow some time for Player responses.

Verdict of the L'Obsul Council: Thursday 5th of September - 7pm GMT / 3pm EST
Follow up event: Sunday 8th of September - 8pm GMT/4pm EST

Life in L'Obsul gets a little less productive. Since the business with the council meeting, the Kobolds have ceased supplying the city with their labour and the products of the mines. Rumours have it that a Svirfneblin delegation has spoken with them, but those negiotiations failed in short order. It is said that the Kobold slain during last weeks events was a respected elder amongst their kind and that they are taking it hard, hiding from an oncoming storm. To make up for the shortfall, the Duergar have redoubled thier efforts in their own mines, and the whips of the overseers can be heard with a renewed ferocity.

The Orogs, have for now at least, ceased thier roving and looking for trouble. A group of them was seen hauling a drow prisoner into their den. Guffaws and cheers could be heard throughout the night as the poor soul is treated to Orog hospitality. It is clear perhaps, that some within the city are not happy about this development either, although no response has yet come to light.

It seems that the Twisting Witch, the Third Daughter of House Vilrath, has retired to the temporary Vilrath Compound in L'Obsul for the time being. There was speculation that she was wounded during the successful raid for a high priority target: a goblin by the name of Crect, who was in league with the assassin of the Council delegates.

Naturally there's no formal statement from house Vilrath on the topic of the Third Daughter, nor can any word truly be trusted: it may not have been the actual Twisting Witch after all. However, House Vilrath does confirm that the Assassin's accomplice is now dead, and a base of operations by the infiltrating dissidents destroyed in the process.

One would call such a victory of sorts.

After the Vilrath Que'llat meeting this cycle, people come and go with a purpose, like spiderlings hatching from an egg sack they spread every which way to do the Ilharess' bidding. It looks like, for all intents and purposes, she has revoked the neutrality of the house as bloodlines and recruited members spread throughout L'Obsul. In the coming days, Vilrath's Ilharess, Tagnik'zur is seen frequenting the merchant square and dining area, her expression neutral as she looks about watching those coming and going as she sips her wine. Receiving messages from various members and dispatching orders. Seems the giant spider that is Que'llar Vilrath has awakened at last.
