Rumours of War - True!

A small group of refugees have found their way to Rivertown, bearing evil tidings of demon armies, massacres, and utter devastation only a short distance from our borders. They claim the forces of chaos, led by Damien (that monstrous child of our Divine One) are already in complete control of some areas.

Civic officials are unhappy about these developments, fearing loss of both authority and lucrative jobs. “We should have been immediately informed of the situation,” said one Councillor, “this is outrageous!” He added, “I’m sure we could have discussed the situation with Damien and come to reasonable terms if only we had known the extent of the conflict.”

Military officials merely commented that this was precisely why they had not been informed.

Until more reliable information is available, citizens here will be tormented by bizarre and garbled tales told by exhausted, confused, and frightened travellers. Stories of monsters, stories of dragons, and even a vile rumour of the death of the Divine One himself.
