((A thread for Sigilian rumors. Please follow the following format:

Title

The Chant: What the average cager would know. (Eg. known by Khazeet, Tarion, Minerva, most commoners)

The Dark: What the average information broker would sell (Eg. known by well-connected factotums, select mimir, information available at the Hall of Records).

The Darkest Dark: What a select few with access to the best information sources would know. (Eg. known by Factors and Factols, Shemeska the Marauder, Jeremo the Natterer)

Of course not every rumor has to have Darks or Darkest Darks (likewise, not every rumor has to have Darks or Darkest Darks that must be delineated at the same time the chant is heard). I'll start below!))

The Anonymous Android

The Chant: There is literally a walking set of explosives somewhere in the Cage ready to go off at any time.

The Dark: As part of some Doomguard's advancement rite, a construct was used to carry a payload of explosives to be detonated at a random time. The being is sentient. It's unclear whether the construct is aware or unaware of its...status.

The Darkest Dark: The construct has abilities akin to those of a doppleganger. It can take the form of others, which makes it exceedingly difficult to discern its location. The construct is unaware of its payload.

The Cage Assaulted

The Chant: Numerous areas in the Cage have been attacked via portal entry. Strange creatures that appear to be made of glowing-green dream material erupted and started to fight anyone in sight. Numerous defenders of Sigil - particularly Harmonium officers - have gone missing.

The Dark: These creatures may be from the Far Realm. They have the ability to possess others per certain faction reports. Additionally, they have been tricking numerous people into entering various dead-end portals and leaving them to rot, so much so that the Harmonium have issued a public service announcement.


The Darkest Dark: The Lady of Pain is expected to hold off invaders and she didn't. Is this just another example of the Lady's aloofness or is there something more serious going on with the Lady of Pain? No one delves far into this answer as terrible things tend to happen to people who investigate the Lady of Pain or her motives.

Factol Rhys has taken a hiatus to another Plane. When the most intuitive of all Factols leaves the city, it does not bode well for the other Factols.

Business as Usual

The Chant: Two individuals have been seen meeting fairly frequently as of the last couple of weeks at various high end cafe's and restaurants. One is a human male, and the other a half dragon male. Both are dressed in very expensive looking finery, and always accompanied by a large entourage of guards. These guards bear the faction colors of the Godsmen and Doomguard in almost equal measure.

The Dark: The human is Factor Heward Petrinor of the Godsmen. The half-Dragon is Kaleb Ashfel of the Doomguard. No one is sure about what exactly they have been discussing- as their respective guards ensure that no one gets too close- but the assumption is that its some sort of official business rather than social calls.

The Darkest Dark: The highest bidders in the information market would get an only half reliable tibit; the next meeting between the two is schedualed to be at The Peak, a very posh clubhouse and resort for the more well to do of Sigil located in the Clerks Ward. This place has become especially popular for such people to conduct business or simply unwind in since the series of battles and attacks in the Lady's Ward these last few months.
I just want to kill monsters and get prizes for it. Is that REALLY so much to ask for?

Hive surprises once again

The Chant: It does! But not like before. I know what you're thinking: 'Trouble in Hive, well isn't that a surprise'. But I'm not selling you blek here! Chant is, it's been unusually nice in the Hive lately. Less theft, less fighting, even less disease. Bah! I heard they even share food and alike. They also tend to leave Hive more often. Well, one thing didn't change of course. The smell!

The Darker Chant: Oh, I know about them. It's true. Of course I still wouldn't go there with a pouch full of jinks, but it's a fact. Strangely nice in there, I've suspecting somebody's up to something. A few informants of mine mentioned to me there is an unusual... sympathy? Sense of solidarity, even among the Hivers.

The Darkest dark: Wha'? Ye' a clueless? Nay, neva' 'eard 'bout it'. Care ta refresh me mem'ry? I've summin, natin' concrete, but double rated. Have I eva' bobbed ya'? ....clink. clink. O, 'old on, I think I'm recallin summin. O' course tha's true, quippas, greensheht's, gleamin' pips, barmies, you name 'em! They bein' nice ta each otha' and it ain't no bobbin', me friend. It's tha' new cult, you see. Been' gettin' popula'. Ye' know 'ow them poor sods can be, aye? Give 'em bitta' 'ope and ye'll coerce 'am ta anythin. They don't ev'n keep that low a profile just not sharin' too much wit ye' high 'ups, ye kno'. But me' jesta's didn't manage ta find their 'eadquatas yet.

The Assembly of Thieves

The Chant: -

The Darker Chant: Chant's all across the planes! If you know where to look for it. It's been said somewhere in the Undersigil there is supposed to take place a conference to which all the most talented and daring thieves of the 'verse are invited.

The Darkest Dark: Ah.. my favourite customer. This one's for free, cutter... passing it as a favour for a friend of mine. Mr V J Gozo is inviting some the most capable thieves of the 'Verse to his mansion in the Undersigil Village, to challenge them with, as he describes it, a glorious task. Bah! Says one who succeeds will be proclaimed the greatest thief in the multiverse. Reputation and good jinks, all a thief ever asked for. And the lawmakers? It's in the Undervillage... Hardheads won't go in there, and I imagine he has means of keeping peace among the guests. And before somebody could do anything to them, they would probably spread around the undeground faster than a pot of soup in the Hive. Oi, do me a favour. If you know anybody like that, daring like a barmy and sharp as abyssal bloodiron, pass it onto him.

Them Nasty Hivers!

The Chant: So much for being nice! They crawled out and flooded the streets! Half the merchants had to pack up and leave because of these nasty Hivers! I mean, do they even bathe?! What are they thinking, roaming the Clerk's Ward, the Bazaar? Being aggressive? Good thing the Hardheads sorted it out before they started their rebellion or whatever that was!

The Darker Chant: Oh no, they still are nice. Just to each other. But it's true, they've been a bit of a bother. Riot? Nah, they're not rioting... my informants tell me, some fancy hat wearing berk have taunted them to this. You know how it is, cutter. Kick a dog few times and it will bite back eventually. Hardheads? Ha! Don't make me laugh. Two came by and ran calling for reinforcements. But they did not arrive until the Hivers were long gone, chasing this hatter to Undersigil. What happened then, is anyone's guess.

The Darkest Dark: Aa, so wha' if they messed 'round a tad? Nating curious 'bout tha', eh? 'Sides, wha' would I 'no 'bout 'Ivas? ..... clink.. Ahh.. 'old on.. I might be recall'n summin. I've git summin fa' ye', as usual. Me jestas say they wa' provoked by some wealthy basha', literally thrown' jink at 'em. But they didn' collect because their leada' forbade 'em. Aye, git this. They listin'd to their leada', 'n not even free jink made 'em stop. Still worken' on tha' puppeteeh's identity, though.

The Chant:

For the few watchers, their numbers have been growing teetering on the edge of concern. Walking corpses have always littered the streets of the Hive but this is different. They seem to be appearing at a systematic rate and no one is quite sure why.

The Chant:

Rumor has it a whole residential block of the Hive vanished over night. Those that ask around the Hive seem quite dismissive the rumors surrounding the event -- but the fact remains: for now, there is now a section of the Hive, entirely abandoned.

While empty for now, it does not take long for the houses to be claimed by other Hivers, in the coming days.

The Chant: Word is, a rather unusual meeting took place among normally rather frivolous, and hence, hard to reach, Sensate Factors. Speculations ranging from irrevent and humorous to dark and twisted arose; the subject of the meeting was however tightly kept secret.

The Dark: Chant among Factotums of various Factions is, there may soon be a major reshuffling of the political power among factions. Sensates frequently come up in these discussions.

(( Available only to very high ranking members or factions named below, ie Factors, or Factotums with special interest in the case. Otherwise consider OOC unless learned IC ))
The Darkest Dark: Word is Godsmen and Mercykillers expressed their interest in tightening ties with the Sensates. The former is not all that surprising given a few shared grounds in the core phillosophy as well as the Believers' aspirations. The latter is neither given their recent divorce with the Fated.

The Chant: A night hag could be seen chatting up the two newest arrivals, Strifeleaders of Cyric, the Prince of Lies, guiding them toward the Hive, almost fawning over the two humans. Earlier and unrelated, in front of Khazeet's bar, a flaming, powerful Eryines seemed to burst forth from the brazier, intimidating an armored, half-baatezu woman and scaring the wits out of a human berk, before spreading her black wings and flying into the sky with a burst of hellfire.

The Chant

Some berks report that there's been a lot of messengers running back and forth between the prison and the barracks recently. Everyone says that someone they know (whose in the know) said that there's some sort of ongoing dispute between the Factols of the Mercykillers and the Harmonium.
Do not hesitate to send me a PM if you:
- Have questions about building, or joining the Dev Team
- Want to join or start an event for the Mercykillers, Fated, or Signers
- You have been waiting more than 2 days for me to post in an IC forum thread

The Chant: A large explosion rocked the grounds of the Gymnasium, only mere hours ago. Smaller tremors were felt in the area following the first blast. It is said to have originated from the Bathhouse, causing a cave in of rubble and debris that blocked the entrance and flooded the interior for a time. A few gathered at the scene to witness two half-drowned figures exiting the debris once it had been semi-cleared.

The Dark: A few gathered at the scene to witness two half-drowned figures exiting the debris once it had been semi-cleared; a blonde haired woman and a man in full armor and a winged helm. It is said the latter of the two seemed severely drained and that the group partook of some small discussion once it was deemed they were unharmed, the words "Giants" and "Undersigil" among those overheard.
