Town Crier Rumors

Free Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "Tou-tou is entirely enveloped in Shadow!"
Town Crier tells you, "I guess there will be "Shadow Diving" after all..."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard rumors of life-attuned Shadowfire Wands being available."

Pyreal Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "I've seen several Mhoire Undead sporting helms that were previously too flammable to be prominently displayed."
Town Crier tells you, "News! The corruption of the Hopeslayer's Shadows has entirely enveloped the town of Tou-tou!"
Town Crier tells you, "Both Asheron and Isin Dule have been sighted in the outskirts of the ravaged area."
Town Crier tells you, "Access to the Derethian Combat Arena has both diversified and grown. As I personally don't engage in combat with other Isparians, you'll have to seek out the details on your own."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard several additional reports of strange statues that those who have given up Asheron's Protections are fighting over."

Ulgrim Rumors

Free Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I tried out the changes to that Derethian Combat Arena. It is just no fun when the competition is so lousy. I can't believe these people even refer to themselves as warriors. More like fish if you ask me."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I ran into Lord Cynreft the other day and taught him how to not be such a push over. He's still far from any match for me, but then again, who is?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Asheron has called on my assistance with the mess in Tou-Tou. The toughest part will be trying to stay sober... Well I'm sure I'm still better than all those shadows when I'm drunk."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Cheers"

Stout Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "It's been a while since I've fought alongside Asheron."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You didn't know I fought with him? We stood back to back against many of the greatest threats in the history of Auberean."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Well I don't care if you don't believe me, but I do think you owe me another stout for being so rude."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Hurnmel finally realized he was sitting on a gold mine and raised the price of those Spectral Rares."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "If you ask me, only the weak need the aid of something like that."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Can you believe that the Jester had no idea how to deal with Void Magic. I had to explain the secret to defending yourself against nether spells."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Man that guy is annoying to talk to for more than a few seconds. He made me have to start drinking early that day."
