The Second Crowsfoot War...

The Drop Outs now hold all of the Drop, Hushwood and the lucrative bridge to Whore Town, as well as the slums near the Blackouts turf, known as Toku's End, which they took back from the Sashes during the war.

The Crows have expanded into the Lampblack turf, taking it from the Sashes (including the Crimson Palace you guys blew up). Rumour is they could field more gangs in the war because the Bluecoats guarded their turf. Lachlan's watch tower continues to control the most respectable corner of the district.

The Red Sashes have been bushed back out of their recent Lampblack gains, but Mylera is shrewd enough to keep a firm hold on her older territory - in part thanks to reinforcements from the Iruvian houses elsewhere in the city.

The Billhooks have forced their way into Crowsfoot and are buffered up against both the Crows and Sashes to the northwest. Erin runs this sub-gang/enterprise, on behalf of Torvul, leaving Coran to run the docks. Notably, they have rolled over the Fog Hounds turf, exiling them from their caches and warehouses. The Fog Hound itself is still 'beached' near the Charterhall Bridge.

And....it's on, Blades!

As the Artist's Mill collapses and burns, so does the fragile remains of peace in Crowsfoot. The Brigade is currently tied up fighting the fire, finally on site after keeping a safe distance from the Billhook/Plug Uglies/Red Sash battle while you escaped.

Marlo it seems, has gone over to the Red Sashes, at least based on his fancy new pistols and equally fancy broccaded Iruvian jacket. He's pretty unrepentant about it too: The game is the game, cutters, aint nothin but business. When dust settles, corners be there. Marlo be there one way ort tother. Me or some other Marlo, savvy? Good luck, cutters

As people (yourselves amongst them) start to make it back through the skirmishing to your rendezvous point, you can hear the desperate slam or doors and shutters, the footsteps of fleeing people, and the hopeful cries of citizens...

"THE CROWS ARE COMING! THE CROWS ARE COMING!"

Salia says the latest word on the street is that things are coming to a head, but thankfully both Queens in waiting want to avoid a repeat of the bloody war so recently finished... well, perhaps. Lyssa is, as always, spoiling for a fight, and Mylera isn't exactly known for backing down....

So this is how things stand:

Crows
Blackouts (I/W)
Bluecoats (III/S)
Cabbies (II/W)
Citizens of Crowsfoot (II/S)
Cult of the Weeping Lady (II/W)
Roof Runners (0/S)
Vultures (I/S)

Red Sashes
Drop Outs (I/S)
Fog Hounds (I/W)
The Brigade (II/S)
Gondoliers (III/W)
Savages (0/W)

Allegedly Neutral
Gloved Hands (I/S)
Thiefmakers (2/S)
Whispered Scream (1/S)
Mardin Gull of the Leaky Bucket (special/S)

The street is buzzing with talk this week!

The main talk of course, is that the Drop Outs and Foghounds have recognised Mylera as Ward Boss. This means that Marlo's Savages have naturally signed on too (although they pay up to you). His "nemesises" the Roof Runners have promptly signed up with  the crows - as have the Blackouts and remains former Lampblacks, who have no real alternative now the Red Sashes are right next door.

Bluecoats continue to harass you - in particular the Clearwater Dock squad, who get into a bit of stand-off with the Fog Hounds. It's not just you though; looks like despite Mylera paying them off to stay away from the Gas Works, they remain generally in the Crows' corner. Marlo: You so much on Lachlan's shit list its untrue. She barned half our rooks, coves. Took a haul of product and paid only in smashed teeth and fingers. Not shiny, Fogs took up the slack though

The Cult of the Weeping Lady isn't really a gang, but it still has influence. After months of staying silent, they are now speaking out against both the Red Sashes and you, painting you as violent thugs, and you specifically as crazies. Having one of their soup kitchens assaulted by the Whispered Scream hasn't helped.

The Vultures (a rival smuggling crew move in on former Fog Hound turf. Between Goldie and the Plugs, you can see them off but they are definitely not your friends now.... and have joined the general Crow alliance.

Mungo Sawney
Mungo is a (former) Skovlan tannery worker. He likes liquor and drugs.
Keep him well supplied and he's a pretty compliant guy.
This includes going to prison for 'masterminding' your criminal enterprises... You're not sure how convincing that will be.

Daaaarlings, it seems that dear Mister Pale and Mister Chalk have unexpectedly left the district. What could be the matter?

Lampblack Caches: Well, darlings, with Alice and the Snuffers gone, I suppose these delicious little tasties are up for the taking.... unless Adric Smiles and his new Crow friends want a bite of the pie? Anyway, Goldie tells me that one cache is at the Dimmer Sisters mansion in Six Towers (a chest full of Baszo's occult memorabilia perhaps?) and that another is hidden somewhere in the Mermaid Bathhouse, now in Red Sash territory....

Interested? I know other shall we say, interested parties, are also looking, so the chance might not be around forever...

Salia: Ah my good friends, have you seen the new wanted posters? They name Toku for the attack on Snuffer turf, and claim Hong and Flint for that whitecrown business and the Six Towers disaster. I have seen some new parchment on Cortland Lock of the Lost, too, over in Charhollow. I know better than to ask for the truth... unless you are feeling talkative?

A rather large reward on offer for all of them, but alas it seems their resources have as usual not extended to a decent sketch artists.

THE BATTLE FOR SIX TOWERS

From the Whitecrown Herald

Imperial Forces swept through the wight-ravaged streets of Six Towers today on another daily sojourn into the dead-riddled streets of the once glorious district. The Lord Governor's office said no expense or resource will be spared in once more bringing the devastated streets back under control of the living.

Captain Vale of the Bluecoats confirmed earlier today that additional rail jack teams are being brought in by special government train from Wintercliff and Whitehollow, and the famous Silver Nails mercenary company's work securing the Lost District has been put on hold while they rescue the fallen neighbourhood from marauding dead.


REBEL 'CAMPAIGN OF TERROR' BEHIND SIX TOWERS CATASTROPHE

From the Whitecrown Herald

Esteemed city magistrate Tenebris La Rouge, head of the investigation into the recent attack in Whitecrown, presented evidence to the City Council today, confirming rumours that the so called Janglers, Red Beggars, and Runagate Commune were behind the attack on Six Towers. In the wake of this revelation that the terrorists, no doubt influenced by demons or heretical forgotten gods, unleashed the dead upon the district in a shameless, reckless, attempt to hurt the good people of the empire.

In other news, the first of the terror cell leaders, Kurt Jangles, and de-frocked 'Doctor' and known sexual degenerate, Elias Sabrehagen and other prisoners were transferred to Ironhook to begin their sentences. When asked if they would receive special protection from other inmates in Ironhook due to their crimes, one prison guard said: "who cares?"

Other known political deviants Flint, 'Doctor' Hong, and Cortland Lock remain at large. Bluecoats urge the populace to remain wary of these madmen, but to inform the local Bluecoat station if you have any information that could lead to their whereabouts or capture.

News from Ironhook...
 
Tarvul: Don’t matter what they were doin’ there, Red Sashes took some of my people. You take Billhook meat, you have to pay Butcher Bill. You’ll help us. And if the Sashes object, we’ll make a little more space for the Drops Outs in Crows Foot.
