The articles are published by scroll and circulated through news stands scattered throughout the jungle; businesses and headquarters may also carry their own copies– inquire with the owner or lead!
The Rumour Mill’s Story
Before Mystara was taken back by the Mysts, a periodical named The Mystara Tribune was the main source of news for all of Mystara and had its printing press in Stromness Village. Upon settling in Eyr, a local paper was seen as a far from immediate need when immigrants were struggling to survive through naval raids, Mystfolk civil wars, and less-than-friendly natives. Once a foothold was finally made with the fishing village, intel became crucially important to keep all of the various splinter factions that uneasily coexist together informed of one another’s activities. Thus, the Rumour Mill was devised.
In times without a clear leader, unnamed commoners keep the news turning. Known as the Rumourmillers, they may also publish general articles when needed at any time.
