Rumours circulate in Suzail about a disturbance at the Obscene Ogre tavern. Several War Wizards were seen outside, and to much protest from dock workers and sailors, they closed down the tavern for a day. Some say that it was a murder investigation, or had something to do with the Silverthorn guardsman and sell-swords inside who had acted in a threatening manner. Locals say there was no fighting, except for a short chase and scuffle outside, which lead to the War Wizards arresting a hooded figure. Regardless, a corpse was carried out of the tavern and word in the Suzail Docks is that the it had "exploded from the inside", and "there was blood and guts all over the floor". Some say the seamstress "Copperfoot" was involved, or that some dirge singer had killed someone with his depressing songs. Over at the Prancin' Bull, barkeep Ray calmly explains that the exploded corpse was the natural result of "the cheap ogre piss they call drinks", whereupon some sailors claim that his bull piss drinks aren't much better.
Order is soon restored to the Ogre, and barkeep Hailred announces that drink and pleasant company is half price for a day. Hailred ensures that business will continue as normal, and that, "the backroom always smelled like that, now get drunk or get out."
