Town Crier Rumors

Free Rumors:

Pyreal Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "Popkin of the Gate, a researcher stationed in Cragstone, has sent word that she now has two dig sites in need of assistance. One in the Vesayen Isles, and the other in Neftet. These A'nekshay seem to have a nose for trouble... Likely the reason why there are no A'nekshay Town Criers."
Town Crier tells you, "Magical fluxuations have weakened Gaerlan's prison, causing a much more powerful Aspect of Gaerlan to form. Stout adventurers are being called to deal with this increased threat."
