Rumors that can be heard around The Sword & Board Inn. Gather your party and venture forth to discover what these lead to. Once an adventuring party starts to investigate a rumor here, the DM will remove it. Additional rumors will appear from time-to-time as the campaign goes on and adventures are had. Some adventure write-ups may directly cause rumors to spread.

Crazy things happen all the time. You never known what's just around the corner or behind that door or down in that pit where I threw all those dwarves. Dwarves might be down there still. They're hardy. They bounce sometimes.
