Refugees are surging out of New Morradin. Most fleeing East towards Halmud via the most traveled path. Some flee into the surrounding farmlands, just trying to escape the Storm, the winds, the rain, and the destruction. A small few have heard of work in the new town known as The Embankment and flee to the south.
In the early morning, on an otherwise clear and productive day, the skies turned suddenly dark and the winds picked up to a frantic pace. Some remember glancing towards "The Gift" and giving a familiar pray for it's presence. But today they saw it's familiar glow flicker and begin to fade. Panic followed soon after as the first of the waves, small at first, began to smash into the docks.
By Divine grace, many Priests of Morradin were quickly on the scene and began enacting evacuations before most knew what was happening. Leading these brave men and women was one young priest known as Delphine (cover name for Prot) an up and coming young man whom many have come to know and respect. Despite their best efforts many lives were lost that fateful morning, though considering the destruction far fewer than expected.
Well timed, a caravan arriving from The Verge arrived with supplies that have proved valuable to helping those left homeless by the destruction. The Verge is now set up on Pine Row and has graciously offered free aid to those left destitute.
In desperate need of supplies lost in the damage, The Church of Morradin has made a major purchase of Halmudian potatoes and is hurriedly shipping them westwards. Rumor has it that the Halmudian Powers that Be are seething at such outside influence and care not for those left homeless.
Perhaps the one happy piece of news to come out of the last week of tragedy, Niko Tesla is rumored to be traveling west towards New Morradin and a voice like hers could sooth nearly any sad soul.
In other news, Halmud continues battling for power in economic fronts. The council has began erecting economic barriers against outsiders attempting to bask in Halmud's growth and production. This comes hot on the heels of the Morradinite's new monopoly on Potatoes (they already control Halmud's Steel mines) and a new ring of smugglers who've set up camp somewhere and have begun hassling the farmers outside Halmud's walls.
