[Off the Record: March Edition]
→ In the Capital, the Red Light District comes back to life after a cold winter. Once again, visitors and customers wander the brightly lit streets with its enticing windows. Rumors abound that some windows offer more than just scantily clad bodies. This window crackles with electricity, and that window is a favorite with anyone that likes being bitten, while that window on the corner is always filled with the sounds of howls. Strangely enough, no authorities seem to notice the activities there, and there are rumors that some of the residents of Second City can be found on the outskirts selling potions of forgetfulness and to make supernatural things unnoticed by those who have no abilities of their own. These are only rumors, of course.
→ In Repose, on nights in March, a strange rumbling can be heard underfoot. Nothing comes of it, but the sound is definitely occurring. Residents all over town go out into their yards and can be seen staring down at the thawing grass. These rumbles coincide with lights deep in the facility's mountain network of laboratories, though only people working inside would make the correlation. Needless to say, it's a little unsettling to feel the ground growl in the evenings. Town Hall blames standard ground settling after the harsh winter months, and the Rangers are instructed to ensure the trails are vacated by dusk daily.
→ Movies in the Park are a Repose summer mainstay, but it's not warm enough to sit on the grass, and this winter seems to be dragging on. As a way to make residents look forward to sunnier days, Town Hall makes all movies at the local theater only $1.00. The movies that show are old classics, and viewers comment about looking around in the theater and seeing patrons dressed as they would've been in whatever picture is playing that evening. That can be chalked up to nostalgia, surely, but when a few residents mention the lobby being similarly populated with old things and older people, and the street beyond too, well, one has to wonder.
