Episode: Lycene Storms II
Posted by Story on 09/14/19
Word arrives in Arx of the assassination of Marquis Duncan Hawkmour. The man had been in Brassfall Keep for some time, ever since the arrival of the foreign emissaries to Arx some time ago, and it comes as a shock to his vassals that the Marquis was murdered while under heavy guard. It's still unclear exactly how it happened, but at some point during the night on November 1st, 1011 AR, an Abandoned disguised as a Hawkmour servant successfully slipped into his room and cut his throat, and then mutilated the body, carving the sigil of the Platinum Throne into his chest, and writing on the wall, 'The Undying Empire tolerates no Cardian dogs'. It's not a very ambiguous commentary.
