The masked drow has not been seen in Rockrun for days. The hut she had once claimed as her home now lies empty, abandoned, with no clue as to whether - or when - she shall return to it.

They returned with a new suit of armor, and departed Rockrun shortly afterwards. They have not yet returned, but before their departure, the human retrieved a number of items she'd given the gnomish merchants for safekeeping. It could be inferred that she didn't expect to come back to Rockrun in the first place.
The redhead returned to Rockrun this cycle, accompanied by a blonde, bearded human with twin blades and deep blue armor. She asked if the tiefling had returned to Rockrun, and helped her companion sell over three hundred gold's worth of assorted gemstones to the local merchants.

After they were done trading, they proceeded eastward to Undrek Naudal, and deeper into the Underdark...

The masked drow returns, nonchalantly reclaiming her old haunt as though she had never left. Where she had been, she doesn't choose to share with anyone.

A small squad of Upperdark dwellers escorted a group of lost surfacers to gnome village. There was exchange of pleasantries, threats and coin. No blood was spilled.

There has been a lot of activity around the masked drow's hut these past cycles. Several cycles ago, two drow women were seen visiting her (with a considerable delay between their respective arrivals), and only emerged sometime in the subsequent cycles.

More recently, a male drow and a masked female, presumably also of drow heritage, were seen leaving the hut this cycle. The large male was holding his left thigh, but otherwise capable of walking on his own two feet. They wandered down the streets, doing their best to fade into the streets and crowd. Both of them were battered and bloodied, though the female seemed healthy enough now.

It would not be the first time, however, that the occupants of that hut had demonstrated a willingness to teleport directly into it. Perhaps they returned from an adventure gone wrong...?

Edit: The male returned to the hut shortly afterwards.

A few cycles past, a scuffle broke out between a group of Drow in one of the dens near the Lighttouch Garden. Soon after a single Drow, worse for wear was seen exiting the building. He had swiftly left the city. Soon after 3 more drow, 2 worse for wear, were spotted leaving Rockrun.

With the increased drow activity within Rockrun catching attention, a singular masked Svirfneblin with the cloak of a blade impaling a curled up spider, could be seen from time to time watching the chosen den entrance calmly and patiently. When approached, as one drow male had found out, the svirfneblin wasnt there to make polite conversation but to reinforce the idea that they're outsiders and that they're being watched.

A lone quiet drow jumps and runs around Rockrun now empty, she yells and goes to hidden and unhidden places, trying to find at least ONE GNOME, after failing, she starts blaming the drow presence on Rockrun, swearing and yelling more, insults and incoherent mumbling yelled, at the drow presence, a particular home, of certain drow who lives in Rockrun , has it's door painted blood red crimson with the words "NOT WELCOME"

Scavengers.

In a quiet hour, two jalien entered the abandoned village of Rockrun. Equipped with sickles, they were searching through buildings, interested in what might grow inside.

After reaping several batches of suspicious blue mushrooms, they left the place.

The sound of hundreds of marching boots echoes through the mushroom lit caverns near Rockrun. An army moves this way. It makes for the surface.
