From the desk of Geffy, your hometown Gossip Goblin.
Zalathor, the delightfully ancient grandfather of Shandryl has recently moved into the guild house. He brings a constant supply of grandfatherly advice, sandwiches and thumps with his walking staff. These old ones are always great for stories and gossip - this reporter will do his best to dig up gossip both old and fresh!
Love is in the Air!
The Lady Kathryn has returned, and was joyously welcomed by Guildmistress Ynari. The two of them quickly disappeared upstairs afterwards. Was it a quick conference to share notes or bedsheets? Were plans being laid, or were other things? This goblin will work tirelessly to discover the truth behind the whispers, and the closed doors!
As was noted last week, Rakasch has taken over an old laboratory in the basement. A note has been affixed to the door and reads as such: "The following screams and/or cries for help are not necessarily the view of the Tamarack Order or any would be warlock in action...any connection to loved ones either living or dead is purely coincidence and not the responsibility of said warlock." Deliciously chilling, isn't it?
Later the next day, Rakasch asked Stoklos for a tiny favor, just a bit of his breath, captured in a jar. The roguish young Songdog bravely protected him, although of course the burly young man didn't need her protection and promised to incarcerate her voidwalker if she approached him again. Is he taking a strong stance for Song, or does he protest too much? Perhaps not all the cries from behind that door are of pain!
Last week this reporter implied that young Tizer may be chasing the powerful Celadrithien. This week, the tables were turned as the warlock sought out the company of the young rogue. Some members may claim to have heard anger in her voice and rumblings of a broken piece of equipment, but anger and passion are easily mistaken. Meanwhile, in an effort to play hard-to-get, Tizer quickly retired to a bedroom with Songdog - the guildmistress's bedroom, if rumors can be believed! If only that bed could talk! Any mages with an appropriate spell can reach me via the goblin postal service.
**this section has been crossed out by hand, but is still legible** Magnus and Ahke were seen quarreling recently. Are the egos of two of the Order's most prominent defenders clashing? Is the quarrel founded in the desire to be the best, or in other desires? **hand written in the margins** This reporter has been assured that while confession is good for the soul, it is carried out by Priests, not Paladins. Paladins provide Absolution, Penance and Cleansing and as such, rest assured that this reporter is not insinuating that one of the Order's most beloved paladins is doing anything untoward.
Krsron has returned from his sojourn at the Northshire Abbey, dare one say refreshed, relaxed and ready to return to the front of battle? A new assignment has lead him to Zangarmarsh, where he will lead the fight against the vicious beasts of the marsh. In an effort to save the soul of a rogue, he was overheard inviting Songdog to a church service. Will she accept? Will she see the error of her ways? Will she stop being a paid informant to this reporter? All these questions and more may be answered next week - remember to buy Stormwind's premier gossip sheet for only 30 coppers!
