After word from Westport was silent during the border lock down due to a plague outbreak contact was finally restored as all trade routes were reopened. Rumors has it that Lord James Ridgewell is furious about the lack of aid provided by his allied neighbors. A possible war is brewing in the Colovian Highlands as a result. The Imperial Eighth Legion was seen fortifying Westports border to territory controlled by House Mevento.

Lord Constans Mevento was seen crossing into Hammerfell in what could only be assumed as a desperate plea to the Daggerfall Covenant for help.

The Westport city council passed a resolution condemning the city states neighbors for lack of action in working to build up the portions of the Highlands where the 3 banners dare not tread. Many expected Lord James Ridgewell to veto the resolution but he instead signed it and instructed the city council to meet again "to discuss all peaceful means in which their concerns could be alleviated, including economic pressures and the revisiting of all treaties with allies in the heartland."

Meanwhile the stand off at the border of Westport land and House Mevento land was only growing as both sides bolstered their numbers. Lord Mevento had returned from abroad with Covenant mercenaries.

There was some sort of commotion In Anvil in the morning, as an old man was found gagged and bound, shirtless, outside the Gold Coast Company's building. The Trading Company's employee is being treated for a head injury.

The Company is investigating the matter but makes no report of anything stolen, nor any sign of forced entry.

A conversation heard in a highlands tavern:

wrote:
"Met a traveler recently. He's a peddler for pottery and tools. I heard the bloke say he seen that group of riders come down from the Varro lands, what with their leader and all. Said some sorta horrible ambush took place and they got shot up real good with arrows 'n what not. He says when he goes to visit the Varro estate now, he gets turned away. Says the place looks like a ghost town. Says there's barely anybody there. Word has it Lord Varro was poisoned real bad like, and they whisked him away to some secret place. No one knows where, but they saying he's on his death bed now. What a right pity, that. Say what you want 'bout him, but there's something to be said for stability, ain't there? Imagine what kinda bad shite going to be stirred up when he dies. Maybe we should look to be movin' out of here? Head down to the coast a bit. Never did like the winter here."

Rumors spread around the west of Cyrodiil that a host of 100 sons of Colovia were sent to the lands of the Varro. Talk flows that the Baron is not accompanying this force but has instead sent another to take his place to lead this force of troops.

Words drift that it is a levy of mixed veterans and peasants sent to garrison and bolster the stronghold on the request of the Horselord. They were seen packing ballistae, cauldrons, and vast amphorae as they marched up north.

Was it the call of the Confederacy? The treaty between western warlords of Cyrodiil?

With the end of the year in sight rumors are swirling of Lord James Ridgewells increasing agitation at the lack of progress in Cyrodiil. One report claimed he berated a Tribune of the Eighth Legion for almost 30 minutes about the state Tamriel is going to be in for his children, another report claimed a secret meeting was held with Legate Adventus Carvain to discuss expanding the coming deceleration of war against House Mevento to read as an "open deceleration of war against all Sons of Colovia whose inaction has contributed to the further decimation of the Heartland and her peoples."

Recently, a new Mages Guild chapter house quietly opened its doors in the city of Kvatch to little fanfare. The guild has long suffered from a poor reputation within the Colovian county known for its conservatism and religious piety. The Guild's reputation had been tainted since the Soulburst, as there are still some within the city's walls who blame the guild for the incident and the subsequent disappearance of the Emperor Varen. Divines guide his soul to Aetherius. As the influence of the Order of the Hour has declined within the court of Count Carolus, lobbying by the Mages Guild appears to have finally borne fruit. While this particular chapter is subject to regulations that aren't present in Anvil, it's another step towards achieving greater accessibility to the arcane arts in the Gold Coast according to Magician Nolus Decimus.

When pushed about the possibility of a civil war breaking out in the Colovian Highlands Lord James Ridgewell was quick to deflect by pointing out it "could not be a civil war given the absence of any Imperial government. It would be a war of those willing to restore Cyrodiil against those whose inaction merely supports her destruction."

When further pressed about the scale of the war and possible help from some allies he holds in the east he simply stated House Ridgewell and Westport hold no alliances with any county or Lords in the Nibenay. This appears to be a sharp rebuke of former friends in the east given Lord Ridgewell served as Consul of Vinovia for a time.

Cries of exclamation and surprise! The city of Kvatch, home to Count Carolus Aquilarios appears to host Ailith Winmar, Baroness of House Winmar and a refugee from Aspern. Rumors spring that the Baroness is here as a refugee, seeking safe haven from the Baron of Aspern.

Beggars whisper to each other of the noblewoman carrying nothing but the clothes on her and coming only with a single horse, could they be wrong? She was last seen taking a room in the Eight Blessings.

Criers and further news brought south to the Gold Coast, say that the lands of Aspern are host to extreme instances of ruthlessness, a man trampled by the Baron supposedly. Furthermore, the torso of Sir Vasesius was found strung up in the town of Pelagia. News from the other towns located in the Barony of Aspern bring words of finding other pieces of the fallen knight displayed on various monuments.

They said the Baron had him drawn and quartered.

A carriage from the Gold Coast Trading Company transporting gold from Anvil to Kvatch was attacked on the road during the night. One of the guard was heard at the tavern saying that the highwaymen's trap was a total failure; no one was wounded and nothing stolen. The suspects, a bosmer female and an argonian male, have not been found.
