Lt. Marcus Phinan
The recent attacks by the mysterious red-cloaked
assassins have escalated, and have the Royal Guard perplexed.
Reports have been coming in for some time now of superhuman warriors that appear
out of the shadows, strike viciously, and disappear just as quickly. In the past
few weeks, the frequency of these attacks has increased, and anonymous sources
have said that their focus has narrowed.
"In the past, those troublemakers were just harassing local farmers"
relayed one citizen of Skara Brae. "But now they're around asking questions
about that dragon we've been hearing about, and about some gemstones. I wouldn't
want to cross them."
Reports have also surfaced of a nobleman showing up at various towns across the
land, escorted by the shadowy warriors. Although witnesses were able to provide
accounts of what he looks like, his identity is still unknown.
His Majesty's Royal Guard requests that anyone with information regarding these
assassins please step forward.
