The Village Tree

Sent each week to all of the villages of Callisto, providing news of events, instruction in laws, and discoveries relevant to every citizen. Available by subscription to farmers, pastoralists, landowners, rural inhabitants and friends.

A discovery in the southwestern peninsula

The heavy granite deposits in the southwestern peninsula have been measured as part of the National Survey. Large granite-encased spheres were recently uncovered there, of unknown origin. It has been reported that Professor Aswale of the University has started to investigate.

Shelter for travelers

In answer to the predations of bandits, the provincial religious rectories in Amalric have opened their doors to travelers. Any who wish to stay in the secure, if humble, parish hall may remain after the close of the evening Lucerna Mass.

An amusing disease

An odd disease has been reported in the south-west: it seems that it causes hair-loss.

Growth in religious faithfulness?

Religious attendance seems to be on the rise in the provinces, with every Mass packed full. But some say it is only because of the food and watered wine the priests distribute at the end of every morning Ortus mass.

Many of the peasants are flocking to the new Cult of Reason, but openly say it is because they have soup.

Drought forecast to continue

The current academic projections show that the spring rains are late to arrive, and are unlikely to give any relief to the drought in the near future.
