Received a note early in the morning regarding a debt owed to Lord Rasdovain. Dire news indeed – the nobility – even the pale shadow of what they could be – still wield enormous power and authority here in Westcrown, and we would be well to avoid crossing them. The inference that this is Halak’s father is more troublesome still – likely something to do with the use of his opera box and the consumption of a somewhat large quantity of fine drink lay at the heart of this.
I am less inclined to trust Halak in the future when it comes to the distribution and use of wealth that he did not accrue himself – and while I seek to avoid the enmity of house Rasdovain, it would appear that Halak’s kin are rapidly earning mine. This is likely a flagrant abuse of power, showing the corrupt and evil nature of this once great city. May I make good use of Iomedae’s strength to one day change this!
We assembled and went to Halak’s family home – a large villa, once quite grand but somewhat in need of maintenance and perhaps a coat of paint. Lord Rasdovain did exactly what I expected him to do; he badgered us mercilessly regarding the use of his opera box, stated that we owed him a debt, and with far less cunning that I expected foreshadowed our doom should we not agree to perform a task for him.
A perfect test for my new channel to the will of Iomedae – I quickly thought of the consequences of accepting this task and clearing the perceived debt owed. Nothing – and therefore nothing that would damage my standing with my faith, my conscience, or my goddess. I accepted – as did the others, for whatever reasons they may or may not have had.
We were given a package and told to deliver it to a caravan guard – one who, of course, had recently departed Westcrown on the road for Egorian. We set out after him, and this is the point at which things began to go awry.
