Town Crier Rumors

Viamontian Town Criers

Town Crier tells you, "Word is there is a settlement of "civilized" Mosswart things on the newly risen island. Uncouth little beings, they are. I wonder who taught them to speak and reason?"
Town Crier tells you, "There is talk of a newly discovered land, risen from the bottom of the ocean. Who knows what secrets have been dredged up from the deep?"
Town Crier tells you, "As soon as we find out where they're hiding, our soldiers are going to crush those Carenzi Rebels."
Town Crier tells you, "Some over-confident Bloodless sought to ply her trade within the walls of our fair city, but the Royal Guards would have none of it and turned her away from the gates."
Town Crier tells you, "We fell on their forces like a plague. The Bloodless cities of Marae Lassel are ours!"
Town Crier tells you, "Victory is ours! All hail King Varicci!"
Town Crier tells you, "Those fools who call themselves the Carenzi believe they are safe from the justice of the King. Well I have some advice for them: "Always watch your back.""
Town Crier tells you, "The Arcanum thinks that we, the proud and noble, would accept their offering of refurbishment. Their agent thought she could waltz right in here and start repairing things she says are broken. We need no help from the Bloodless to repair trinkets and baubles! Leave such trifles to the Thrungum!"
Town Crier tells you, "Scouts report that the creatures of the new island are especially dangerous. Be careful if you head out in that direction. That is, if you are strong enough to make it there."
Town Crier tells you, "Hear ye, hear ye! Pathetic Bloodless coupling falls into shambles! Bloodless Flourist suspected of murdering her wretched husband! Well... that is my account of it anyway."
Town Crier tells you, "Those young rebels must have some measure of courage, standing up to our King's armies the way they are."
Town Crier tells you, "We have heard that the newly risen island is called Vissidal Island, which is the name given to it by its ancient inhabitants, before it sank beneath the waves."
Town Crier tells you, "The Lugians of Geth Tukora have been unusually active of late. I hear they've expanded their ruined quarters. If they keep this up, we'll have to drop the Eaters on them once again."
Town Crier tells you, "Those who delight in pugilism might be interested to know that adventurers have returned from Vissidal Island with a powerful, if oddly constructed, new hand weapon."

Mainland Town Criers

Town Crier tells you, "Reports are sketchy, but apparently Viamontian Knights have been seen in the hills around Stonehold. Now that they've taken Marae, I imagine Stonehold is next on their list."
Town Crier tells you, "Explorers have reported that a new island has risen from the deeps of the ocean! Wooo, the mystery!"
Town Crier tells you, "They came without warning. The cities of Redspire, Greenspire, and Bluespire were lost within an hour of the assault. The Queen is huddled with her council. I do hope she comes up with some sort of plan."
Town Crier tells you, "I have to admit, I am a bit relieved knowing that we Town Criers are no longer the only ones in the business of accepting worthless junk!"
Town Crier tells you, "I have often wondered, do all of the Duke's relatives share his philosophies? Are they all rebels, or do some of them still follow their king?"
Town Crier tells you, "Reports say the new island is called Vissidal Island, a name bestowed on it by the Empyrean race who lived there before."
Town Crier tells you, "I hear tale the new island's not for everyone. Apparently it is filled with strange and powerful creatures, and it's quite difficult to gain access to the portal that leads there."
Town Crier tells you, "My cousin went to the new island and he came back with an odd-looking hand weapon..."
Town Crier tells you, "I hope the Carenzi Rebels can hold out a little longer! My cousin sent them some food..."
Town Crier tells you, "Have you heard about Branwyn and Geowulf? It seems as though they had a fight. Geowulf stormed out their home and hasn't been seen since! I met them once at a social at the Haliana settlement. They seemed so happy."
Town Crier tells you, "Fantastic news for those who have had some of their favorite pieces of housing decor ruined by the unseemly weather of this world! The Arcanum has sent skilled refurbishers to the towns of Shoushi, Yaraq and Holtburg. I hear one of them tried to offer her services to the Viamontians of Sanamar, but was turned away at the gate."
Town Crier tells you, "Reports say the new island is called Vissidal Island, a name bestowed on it by the Empyrean race who lived there before."
Town Crier tells you, "If you have an attuned item you no longer need, feel free to donate it to a Town Crier."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard there are some youngsters who have taken to the hills on Marae and are fighting the Viamontian invaders! My heart goes out to those poor young souls."
Town Crier tells you, "Poor Branwyn. Ever since her husband's disappearance she hasn't left that lonely cottage of hers."
Town Crier tells you, "Oh no. You cannot be serious. Those Mosswarts on the new island cannot possibly worship HIM."
Town Crier tells you, "I have heard there is a group of intelligent Mosswarts living on the newly risen island. I have to wonder how they got to be so much smarter than their mainland cousins."
Town Crier tells you, "Have you heard the stories of the beast they call the Leviathan? Large as a house they say. Most dreadful."
