The assassin manages by the aid of a mysterious individual to escape the scene of the murder of Angmar Greyclaws. Shortly afterword, the sorceror and battlemage arrive to find that the man they are meant to meet with and/or gather information on is quite dead. The only indication of what happened is a mysterious man calling himself the Herald, and the indication that the book Angmar had been perusing is gone.
The wordcaster has sent word to Gavald Grayfang, while the battlemage has gone to his underground contacts to gather information on this Herald, local assassin grouops, and on why anyone would want Angmar dead, and discovered the information that despite Angmar’s connection to the Greycloaks, he had been a patron of the arts and a known scholar, upstanding in the community and frequently contributing to charities. No evidence has yet been gathered on what could have triggered a hit on such an individual, but the battlemage’s contact has promised to get back to him.
Meanwhile, the assassin in question has stumbled directly under the nose of her half-hearted pursuers and stumbled straight back out, being in the room of both the wordcaster and the battlemage, with all three unaware of the connections!
Will the assassin be caught, and will the Herald be revealed as to his identity and his motives? The players have many questions to answer, and events may not allow them the time to answer them all…
