Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "Finally, the casinos have moved closer to town! I was worried about those guys. They provide such a valuable service to the people of Dereth. But they've been out in the wilds for so long. No shelter, no food, no.. you know, the more I think about this, the more this all sounds a little familiar."
Town Crier tells you, "Yesterday, my daughter and I were walking through the marketplace when she saw what she claimed to be the most beautiful dress ever. Now I have to figure out how to make it for her... kids... sheesh!"
Town Crier tells you, "Tanami Kei needs your help! Poor man, last I heard of him, he was drowning his sorrows in the bar in Ayan Baqur..."
Town Crier tells you, "At long last, the Agents of the Arcanum have expanded the list of items they will accept in exchange for housing writs! I might be able to finally buy that cottage I've had my eye on!"
Town Crier tells you, "Elysa's council is all abuzz about those new islands to the north of the Beach Fort. Where did they come from? Why have we not seen them until now? If we only had a boat..."
Town Crier tells you, "So many masks have suddenly become available! I know which one I want to collect to round out my collection!"
Town Crier tells you, "I heard that portals to Power Forges have been discovered on the shores of the Inner Sea. What mysteries like within their depths? Only time will tell."
Town Crier tells you, "Some people ask me where all the new portals in Shoushi, Holtburg, and Yaraq came from. To them I say, Dereth is a land of change."
Town Crier tells you, "Some young man just told me that the Banderlings of the Direlands have started an underground Niffis-fighting ring. Do those damnable Banderlings have no sense of decency at all? My word."
Town Crier tells you, "I used to think that Marsh Siraluun claws were only good for some mundane items. Boy! Those Aun in Bluespire sure proved me wrong!"
Town Crier tells you, "New mysteries lie beneath the waters of the Inner Sea. Could they be of benefit to our people? Or do they only promise untold horrors? Inquiring minds want to know."
Town Crier tells you, "Few things crush the spirit more than the theft of your intellectual property. Just ask Tanami Kei, in Ayan Baqur."
Town Crier tells you, "Like my new finery? Isn't it fabulous? I bet you wish you could have one too!"
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard that some new artisans have moved to Bluespire. They don't appear to be as eccentric as the ones in Glenden Wood, but I have never known the Aun to be that odd anyway."
Town Crier tells you, "They say that Asheron went back home. I can't wait to see what he does, now that he's in control of the place."
Town Crier tells you, "A friend of mine strolled by earlier with a pack full of odd weaponry. They definitely looked tumerok in design, but what they were capable of was simply not what I expected."
