Rumors of Early Fall, 821

  • Shane is a 14 time spelling bee ( or “word gladiator”) champion and hates the silent e because of the challenges it created for him during his time as a competitor.
  • Venia has been receiving a bunch of mysterious mail from Salendale.
  • Time doesn’t seem to be moving the same way in the rest of Evren as it is for Oak Harbor. Or so the Davenstern messengers say.
  • Leopold might be pretty good, actually.
  • If you leave bread out long enough it becomes mice.
  • Mist provides fertile ground for acorns to grow.
  • We’re not saying that Odie and Omoira are necromancers. But is the gemstone in Sarto rings actually a piece of bone?
  • Zelai was seen smiling. Recently.
  • Beware the Great Conjunction
  • Signe’s turning over a new leaf. Or maybe she wants you to turn over your leaf. Unclear.
  • Florica is thinking of naming her baby Helen if it’s AFAB and Pollux if it’s AMAB.
  • We’re not in a pocket dimension. We’re in an egg. If we can’t crack the world’s shell, we will die.
  • Those who learn their history may learn how to repeat it.
  • Ficus is dreamcrafting a copy of Oyku’s hats as part of an elaborate plan.
  • Amos built his house out of straw. Zelai built his house out of sticks. Shane built his house out of Swords. Then along came a wolf…
  • Colin might suck, though. Wait, no, we heard wrong. He might make sucking wounds in your chest cavity.
  • The other rumors are lies, only this rumor is true. Don’t believe the other rumors they’re trying to trick you.
  • An old friend returns…FOR MURDER.
  • Amos has realized that the way to have the perfect pork chop is to become the perfect pork chop.
  • When you breathe, its actually the air that does all the work. Water is lazy and that is why people drown. Water works harder for fish because they are shiny and water is trying to impress them so they won’t leave, so the more you fish, the fewer fish will drown.
  • Odie and Zevvi pay the locals to make sure none of the rumors about the Hounds are about them. (Everyone is just afraid to gossip about Vai.)
  • There’s a very secretive group of dwarves looking for a burglar.
  • For a bunch of people stuck halfway in Umbra, there sure are a lot of you trying to Gate to Firmament.
  • Under Amos’ hat is another, smaller Amos, wearing a different hat.
  • The town council has decided to outlaw all forms of magic, punishable by death. Mysticism doesn’t count as magic, though. Neither does healing.
  • I hear Raf’s girlfriend turned into the moon. That’s gotta be rough. Or maybe ruff?
  • Nephros plans to be the one sacrificed at the World Tree.
  • This is somehow Tess’s fault. What is? All of it.
  • There is no Scott anymore. Only Ttocs.
  • Florica’s baby is actually from a swan lyra.
  • What do the Hurzicht know of our predicament? A lot, probably.
  • Kael has been mumbling about how, if this new Velliar apprentice doesn’t work out, she has plans to find the perfect new one.
  • Hey Amos. What’s that behind you?
  • Astrophel and Florica definitely never had any later night meetings. That was definitely Caius meeting him at the back door of the tea house. Right?
  • The library is a bit short on books and scrolls lately, due to the whole pocket-realm thing. But they seem to have stocked up on extra vivid and informative hallucinations.
  • In the end, I think we can all agree, this is Shane’s fault.
  • The only way in or out of town right now is the University Gate, and the Velliar won’t let anyone actually use it.

  • Rosen is considering a new career as an apple farmer.
  • Leopold’s poem, the Founding of Oak Harbor, is experiencing a surge in popularity.
  • The secret Hurzicht don’t want you to know is they’re really all from Areth.
  • The Frost shall be unmelted.
  • Alchemists don’t actually use components, they just claim to use them to obfuscate how Alchemy works. The components you find on Willowsday mornings were actually hidden by the alchemists to get rid of clutter in the shop.
  • The Silver Acorn and the Bronze Acorn are annoyed that Gold is getting all the attention, and are going to be here soon.
  • Why are some of the fae still here when the world is half-Umbra?
  • The residents of Oak Harbor are out for blood. Lots of them. Mostly wanting little vials of it.
