Jameson Curnow reporting on the situation at Brigmore Manor. It's as we thought—there's word going around that something big is going down at the house in just a couple of nights. We've got men out in the key taverns—the Randy Whaler, the Seven of Bells, even the ruins of the old Hound Pits Pub. Also at the Golden Cat. Plenty of chatter there—seems there's a new group looking for more members—they're offering good money, perhaps trying to attract those who were in the old street gangs, pull them out of the woodwork.
We don't have any names yet, and we don't know what they plan to do, but talk is this gang had hit a graveyard, so we're fairly sure it's the same lot. The Wrenhaven River Patrol have done a good job—some suspicious activity has been seen at one of the old, abandoned whale processing plants on Slaughterhouse Row—the Greaves Auxiliary Slaughterhouse Five, to be precise. We have surveillance planned, but I advised caution—we don't want them knowing we're onto them. As you've suggested, let's watch them and see what they're up to. There's got to be more to it than just robbing graves. If we catch them in the act, maybe we can learn what their real plans are.
I'll file another report after I meet with Commander Kittredge again. They're doing their best, but they're not spies, that's for sure. They get any closer they may as well just walk up to the slaughterhouse door and ask if anyone's at home.
I remain your loyal servant, Jameson Curnow.
