I’m sorry I didn’t write in a while, but I’ve been quite busy these past few days. I fought and ended the Sharn Syndicate. I wanted to do it with you, but the gang got out of hand, and I felt I had to do something ASAP. One thing led to another, and I found myself shaking hands with Coin Lord Yorrick Amanatu himself. So many other things happened as well… It would take a week to get it all down on paper, so I’ll only get the important notes and tell you the rest in person…
Let’s see, where to start… Oh! There are dragons in the city! Amanatu told me that one of them threatened to destroy the entire city if he didn’t get a certain painting back. When I was sent to this dragon, named Kear, I was surprised to find an elf, but he knew my name, where I was from, and my whole experience with him. He told me that everything happens for a reason, and that I shouldn’t run from my past and hide. It sounds like fate, but he calls it the Prophecy, and that everyone has a role in it, no matter how small, though he talked briefly. He also mentioned that not all troglodytes are as vile as him.
What also surprised me was what I found in the neighborhood that the Syndicate occupied. I met with the gang leader, Talon Darsin. Despite all that I had done to stomp out his followers… he invited me into his inner circle. He treated me as if I would stay by his side if offered a higher reward. Either that, or he was trying to stall until the right opportunity to stab me in the back. But if he was honest, then that means that he respects me, and I was not ready for that. I turned down his offer, of course, though I didn’t do it politely. I guess I’m now an official assassin.
After all that fuss was over, I was invited to a party that all the guards were having. There, I tasted luxury… and denied it. I’d rather be in a tavern chair with the Commandos rather than on a couch with a bunch of people I don’t know. And the food was not at all to my liking. I eat poultry and fish, not red meat. I vowed not to eat red meats after being fed nothing but rats for seventeen days.
P.S. Did you hear of the news from Zilargo? I have a bad feeling that all the kobolds and troglodytes beneath Stormreach are going to start something big once those adventurers get here.
