High Captain Taerl of Luskan studied the reports again hoping to see what wasn’t there. The Warlord sighed resignedly and reminded himself once again that war was expensive. Finances on hand were limited and while there were certainly spoils in war, items recovered in battle are usually dispersed among the victorious troops.
The High Captain rang the servant bell resting on his desk which brought the warlord’s manservant knocking on his study door within seconds. “Romney I need you to quietly find my brother Gavail , please do it quietly. Bring him through the servant’s entrance; I don’t want anyone to know. Tell him it’s in regards to his plan, he’ll understand what I’m referring to.” Taerl only looked up from his reports at Romney when he had finished speaking. Truth be told the warlord disliked looking at his manservant, his face had been horribly scarred, one eye always looking in one direction. If Romney felt any emotion the warlord had yet to see it but the manservant was excelled at his post, always quickly responding and resolving any chore given to him quickly and efficiently.
All of Romney’s attention was currently focused on listening to the conversation inside the Warlord’s den. To all appearances the manservant stood near his master’s door waiting for the bell to sound and jump to the leader’s call. The assassin couldn’t hear everything the brothers were discussing but clearly heard Gavail say Azurem the Blue. Romney was so focused on the conversation he almost didn’t hear the bell that was suddenly rung from inside. Shaken from his focus, Romney quickly resumed character and entered the warlord’s chamber in his guise as manservant.
