Rumors:

Lost Smokepowder

A group of dwarves seem to have made their way into town, complaining to the local authorities that a shipment of smokepowder they were carrying into town was stolen by a group of brigands. The authorities have done little so far to help the dwarves, who now are growing angrier by the day.

How you would react:
Miyth & Co.: Bandits stealing smokepowder? That would be something useful to get ahold of... perhaps the bandits could be contacted through your connections in the underground.
Authorities: While little can be done to retrieve the smokepowder, a group of insulted dwarves may harm trade. This is not good, we need more security in our lands!
Everyone else: Perhaps I should be a little more careful when travelling out of town...

Stray Kobold

Word is going round that a kobold dressed in exotic clothing has been showing up in town, attempting to trade what he calls 'shiny ones' (which are in reality, blocks of silver and gold) for raw apples and other fruit. He seems to love them, and many storekeeps are swindling the naive kobold in order to get rich quick. The creature himself is obviously unaware of this.

How you would react:
Thieves:What am I waiting for? I want some of this stupid kobold's gold too!
Guards and other good-doers:This is horrible! I'd better try to tell as many people as I can to try to help the poor fellow invest his money properly.

Routes Established around Valanthas: The forests and lands surrounding Valanthas have been blighted by the presence of the Vinewall that seals off the county. It has taken some time, but traders and townsfolk have banded together with the help of a few outlying rangers to carve new paths that run a safe distance around Valanthas; making travel and trade to the northernlands possible again.

The Northwest Continent: With the recent discovery of the traders and immigrants trickling over from the apparently new Continent discovered to the west of Calenndor, the first few embassy ships and explorers have left dock from the Aracthian Ruins on the west coast. Representatives in attendance are representing Ansteorra, Tharivol, and Austia. The journey is expected to take a Month, at which time the mages in attendance will establish a casting ring and attempt to contact the Ansteorran guild.

Plot:

Colonization
The new continent to the North (not to be mixed with the North West contient) has actually been discovered to effectively be South of the continent of Calenndor, though complex processes of navigation and cartography. The current sea-route used to get there involves going near Feanor's North Pole, and then up through the Southern Hemisphere.

Many private enterprises and adventuring companies have been plotting out various routes as to how to get to this new continent, which has been dubbed 'Maztica.' Posters and advertisements are springing up all over the city, calling all adventurers and those who seeks a frontier life to join into the colonization efforts, as Maztica has so far been deemed uninhabited.

Attention given to this topic is surprisingly large, and in fact, the first ship filled with colonists has already set off for Maztica, in hopes of establishing a first port city there.

How you would react:
Rangers and other explorers:This is very interesting - an entire new continent to explore? Sounds enticing. Even if I can't go, I should at least keep an eye out for what they find there.
Other adventurers: While the topic of exploring a new continent and it's possible treasures sounds enticing, it may be a bit too much to drop your life here and head off into what is apparently the middle of nowhere.
The general populace: What the hell are these crazy people up to again?!

Rumor:

The New Army
A fear years ago, King Goridona VII promoted the current Lord Commander to his position as leader of the kingdom's army from his former position as Overseer of the Fighters' Guild. This event took place in the middle of a civil rebellion inside the city. After the revolt was put down, the king ordered the new commander to reorganize the army into a tactically efficient fighting force to defend the crown's power in future affairs.

Though the king has since then abdicated from the throne, the date is soon approaching for the Lord Commander to present to the queen an official account of all military forces in the kingdom and all amendments made since the revolt. Royal scribes are eager to reproduce portions of this tome for other officers of the state following the many new innovations incorporated into the army. One of the most interesting, however, are rumors of scarhawks being trained for mounted combat.

How you would react:
Lawful-aligned characters: A strong military is vital to maintaining order in the kingdom. The dark events of recent seem to be taking a turn for the better as a more powerful Ansteorra is emerging to fight those that would threaten her.
Druids/Rangers: Although you aren't particularly interested in military matters, the addition of scarhawk riders to the army's arsenal presents an opportunity to lend your animal-handling skills to the soldiers of Ansteorra.
Others: The many new additions to the army over the years are often the subject of rumors and conversation. Perhaps if you're able to find a copy of the report, you can confirm some of this.

Rumblings in the Undercity

Reports have come in from many quarters of the Capital about strange lights and sounds being heard from the sewer grates and within the undercity itself. One harried furre pulled from a grate near the docks muttered insanities about things in the dark, scurrying around. The undercity itself is many Millennia old, and hasn't been truly used since the Lich King's assault on the Kingdom 2000 years ago... Common knowlege says that the tunnels and caves were abandoned. Perhaps something has taken advantage of that.

Everyone: Something in the sewers? Perhaps you should be a bit more careful when you sit near a sewer grate.

Theives: You aren't alone down there. And perhaps you should keep an eye out.
