The Fall of a Great
Weeks ago the Royal Guard discovered documents that prove the involvement of the Areani in the assassination of the King - a note written by Antonius Renard, councillor of Dalmunatha, sanctioning the regicide. Renard is of high standing and has always been a respected man among the aristocracy.
But actions like these demand consequences - the Order Of The Shadows, loyal to no single leader but only to Roawia and it's citizens, set out to eliminate Renard before he can cause more damage to the realms.
At dawn, the warriors of the ship of the order arrived in Dalmunatha and by raft they reached the sea-walls of the city.
Only two guards are on patrol outside the walls ...
... while Renard is in the city giving orders to an officer of the Loreesi army; and while part of the group climbs the walls, the others enter through the gate.
In a swift strike, Renard and the remaining guards are eliminated and the new orders are intercepted.
