Drip...
Drip...

Drip...

"They killed them, both of them! Oh my sweet sisters..."

There was a clicking of the halls, a talon tapping on the walls. The sewer was filled with sorrow, one so tangible one could slice through it with a blade. The mourning was followed by an ever insistent drip of tears falling from wrinkled cheeks to tap on the stone floor underfoot, quieted by the wafting of slow putrid waters.

"Jaldada.. Evanora... my sweet sisters. You both still had so much to do.. so much to learn. Those wretches will pay.. pay with their lives. An eye for an eye.. blood for blood.





It was a fair evening with a beautiful twinkling sky above. The moon shown high, watching down upon the men and women of the quieting evening city of Highmeadow. People's final footsteps faded into homes, doors clicked, and only the tavern kept a soft bustle with laughter and slammed wood tankards on tabletops. Down an alley and young couple giggled to each other as they drunkenly strolled along cobblestone, giddy with a stupor of joy in the late eve. They smiled, hand in hand, shoulder against shoulder as they looked about for their home through blurred vision and wobbling steps. Though despite this wondrous evening.. something sinister filled that alley that night, creeping, crawling along the cobblestone. It crept through the cracks like blood, slinking with a coil to its every movement.


The couple were entirely unaware as this thing came forth... unaware until its talons dug deep and their momentary screams were silenced. Bodies were dragged, scraping and rubbing against the cobblestone to leave a wretched path that would soon dry into a dull brown by daybreak. The trail would grow cold in the center of a further down alley... and no bodies left behind... only a strong scent of blood beginning to gradually fill the streets, seeming to originate from the gutters and holes that led to the muck and defecation filled sewers.

And over the next few days.. the next mense even, people disappeared. They disappeared in groups of one, sometimes two... and even more rarely as much as four. Though every trail of blood always ended in a place with no where to go... and no body at the end. And with these disappearances... the smell of rot and drying blood... permeated the air of Highmeadow in a grotesque fashion.

A warning perhaps...? Or is this simply the beginning of something far more.. sinister.

Laughter filled the tunnels the witch strutted through as she watched all that occurred in the city square take place. It was a delightful little match. Unfortunately less people were felled, but that mattered little, her goal was accomplished. She giggled softly and continued on, feet squelching on blood soaked stone.

"Soon.. soon.. the rest will be released, and Highmeadow will be eternally caked in the blood of its dead."

The entire city of Highmeadow was coated in a centimeter of thick blood from the previous downpour. Every time the clouds grew dark... instead of the soft, gentle patter of rain, the sky bled red. The entire city smelled absolutely atrocious, making it gross to even step outside for a few moments, and more and more people disappeared one by one.. the numbers of disappearances growing. It was truly some terrible few septs for the Summerlands.


During this time, the rest of the world rested unaffected, as if whatever had come.. only came for one people... the Reiklands.

Citizens of Mittlereik, Travelers, Guests, and Merchants of Stripes,

High Meadow is now under quarantine. No person may enter or exit the city sans a full health screening. Check points have been established to prevent citizens and guests leave or entering. Large patrols will henceforth be used to shuffle persons through the city. Stand tall, Summerlanders. And march ever forward. This insanity will be put down like all of the other heresies to assail our free and mighty land.

Reikskanzler,
Krianna B. Alum

Across the city, one by one, people were beginning to show up curled up on the streets, crying out in pain with bloodshot eyes and bulging veins. They had little bites on their ankles or arms and many of these people were without home. They gathered in clusters, weeping and some screaming, taking on the symptoms of the first three that had been infected.

Over time as people filled the streets, curled up off to the side, small swarms of rats, squeaking out, flooded around those infected. They were bit, attacked, and whenever a rat did so, ran off in almost a panicked state, scampering away and attacking those who were healthy or just hiding away to never be seen again.

The Amsel cell took up the task of communicating her directives. The high towers of High Meadow became booming communications bureaus. By day, signaling flags reigned. At night, lanterns facilitated the same objectives. The first order of business happened to be establishing the new system. Following which a series of clear directives enter policy and execution.

They coordinate the activities. Under the Reikskanzler's supervision, the evacuation efforts begin. The fair creature reach out for her inner most self.
