Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "The residents of Arwic have split the town into two separate settlements. Some refer to it as 'New Arwic,' or 'New'ic.'"
Town Crier tells you, "News! The massive Shadow Spires that recently destroyed our settlements have begun to withdraw back into the earth. Sages are concerned this may herald the beginning of some dire new Shadow plot."
Town Crier tells you, "Is it just me, or do you see lights on the moon of Alb'arel?"
Town Crier tells you, "The night sky seems to have returned to normal. If you ask me, it's never looked better!"
Town Crier tells you, "Do you like my mask? Alexander the Deft made it for me!"
Town Crier tells you, "Do you like my mask? Tsua Kagemata made it for me!"
Town Crier tells you, "Sir Candeth Martine of the Dereth Exploration Society recently went into the Blackmire west of Sawato, to research the habits of Mosswarts. A funny duck, that one. Me, all I need to about Mosswarts is how to make them do that squeak when they die!"
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard a few reports of people suffering terrible visions when a Shadow is slain near them."
Town Crier tells you, "It seems the undead and the Shadows are both lying low for the time being. It is believed they are both searching for the last Soul Stone."
Town Crier tells you, "Mages say that the areas around the old menhir rings are now gushing with magical power! Those who stand in them report high rates of mana replenishment."
Town Crier tells you, "It seems the undead are on our side for now. They're also fighting against the Shadows. So far it doesn't seem to have helped much."
Town Crier tells you, "Yesterday I found a Fez that didn't have any enchantments. Odd, huh?"
Town Crier tells you, "News! The scholars of Zaikhal recently recovered thousands of Yalaini texts from long-sealed caverns at Xarabydun. The Consortium of Archmages have begun to produce reagents in the Empyrean style, a compressed form mages have taken to calling 'peas.' Peas are small and lightweight, but can only be used with the aid of a special tool."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard that some of the scarecrows that came through the portals were animated by the vagaries of portalspace. But surely that's just a fairy-story for children!"
Town Crier tells you, "It looks like some of our farmers found pumpkin seeds in the heads of some scarecrows. Aluvian legends say that carving a frightening visage into a pumpkin can ward off evil, but I don't think the Shadows will be impressed...
Town Crier tells you, "I hear they destroyed three more of the Soul Stones imprisoning Bael'Zharon... That means there's only one left! Why would they do that?"
Town Crier tells you, "News! Parties of adventurers discovered three Empyrean storage facilities last month, hidden away under rings of crystal."
Town Crier tells you, "Do you like my mask? Janda Sulifiya made it for me!"

Ulgrim Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oswald was sighted in Xarabydun yesterday!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Want to buy the Obsidian Span? I got the deed to it from Asheron."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That island off the coast of Eastham? Been there a million times. All you have to do is find the right portal. Try climbing into the pocket of a Tremendous Monouga. They pick up portals and carry them around, you know."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The Tuskers look healthier lately, but they still smell bad. Sometimes you can get a Tusker Tusk from their corpses. If you can collect twelve of them and use berimphur dye on each, you can string them together with drudge guts to make a Tusker Lure. Any Tusker that sees a Lure will follow you around grunting 'Naners! Naners!'"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oswald was sighted in Distaster Maze yesterday. He was camping the Director."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I saw Claude practicing a waltz with a scarecrow the other day. He was muttering something about poetry."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I don't care what everyone else says - the moons didn't look like that before!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That Virindi, Leopold, you want to watch out for him. Those masks he gives out will turn you into one of his people."
