Word among commoners and Seraph's off-duty is increasing regarding an event in the Eastern Commons by night:
-"I heard a man was was shot to death in the Commons, windows broken in, gunshots... even a store down by the Orchestra was destroyed, blood and smoke everywhere! And lightning bolts too! Cannot believe they patrol the Commons so sparsely."
-"We recovered a staff of some sort, bullet shells and blood splatter everywhere I tell 'ya. Can't tell y'more, sorry pal."
Authorities looking into the case:
A shot corpse in the head, bullets and shells all over the crime scene with the staff - windows around the courtyard seemed to have been shattered by a shockwave from the outside. Down by the Orchestra, a lot of blood was present, along with throwing knives, burn marks along the walls and flooring, a dagger, a smoke grenade, throwing knives and vomit. The store seemed to have been broken in with furniture smashed all over the instance.
Yesterday night, a Seraph officer was seen chasing two laughing Sylvari through the western commons after they had vandalized Melandru's statue. During his pursuit, the unaware officer left green footprints on the ground, leaving a funny reminder of his feeble attempts to capture the fleeing Sylvaris.
The officer stated that the Sylvaris were shouting how Melandru was now the Human Mother Tree, given the green paint on the statue of the Goddess of Nature. Civilian's statements confirms this, and added that the Sylvaris were also yelling out all kinds of plant related puns.

Rumor has it, that in the tavern that was previously known as The Merchant's Coin, a soup kitchen has recently opened.

"Half a year after the Gendarran Free Company departed for Elonian shores, they have returned alive and well, despite rumours to the contrary.
An airship rescue expedition lead by one Baroness Salona reportedly recovered the ill-fated mercenaries from the midst of the Branded Scar. Although exhausted and injured, most of the Companions were accounted for and made a full recovery in Amnoon before returning home. Locals say the GFC were instrumental in saving dozens of lives in the Siege of Vabbi at the expense of their own escape.
The Guild Initiative has issued a full apology for wrongfully assuming their demise and has promised substantial compensation to the GFC.
Ms Laskaris, Captain, was unavailable for comment."
A new tent was recently added to the tent-town in the outskirts of Amnoon. Small and fitting one person, but the owner looked rejoiced. Said owner, a gorgeous caramel-skinned boy with turquoise in his gaze, was spotted washing his hair in the morning, into the pool of fresh water just nearby the improvised encampment.
He smiled at the new "neighbours", chatted happily and introduced himself by the name of a precious gem.
Rumors have it that recently, Amnoon has issues with clean water. Some say their river and lakes have been polluted due to a recent infestation. Travellers coming to amnoon might find some establishments requiring coin for water refills. Even as the very much well-functioning Waterworks Authority claims, the clearing efforts are underway. Donations for this noble tasks are apparently more than welcomed.
