New client: Harald Frode & The Old Council of Himmin
Task: Identify the origin of the strange earthquakes and put a stop to them if possible.
Fee: 500 gold per week, but need frequent reports
Restrictions: Need to keep our reputation high, no fraternizing with gangs or getting arrested
Leads from the Old Council:
Earthquakes are not natural in origin. They are limited to the mountain and seem to be originating from the city.
Checked with druids and clerics, no one knew an answer.
No specific pattern to the earthquakes.
A mirrorsheen vision showed a dark figure causing both the earthquakes and the disappearances from the Arcanin Guild Hall
Mysterious stranger has been kidnapping workers to dig up a Mithril vein and is somehow causing the earthquakes
Current suspect: Mysterious stranger (name unknown, age unknown)
Covers his face with a skull mask, often dressed with a black coat and a black top hat
Powerful arcane wielder, possibly an artificer. Gear-based magic. Can animate statues into magical hard-punching constructs. DO NOT stand near statues when he is around.
Has a limp in the right leg
Has a fascination with elven women, perhaps a previous (deceased) lover, and roses. Likely connected to a grave marker with a black rose (that he probably placed himself)
Can impersonate other people, most notably Estar Arcos
Limited means and resorts to stealing, but seems well-educated
Has knowledge of a way to avoid the curse of the Black Maze
Unafraid to remove any individuals he does not need, but is not specifically blood-thirsty
Possible connection to abandoned building in Noble district
Believes to be working towards the good of the city
Mask may be hiding disfigurement
Disgruntled former Arcanin Guild Member
Unlikely to be a Dwarf, but may still be involved with the Dwarven ruins
Possibly Nathan from the Burnbright Engine accident, out for revenge against Estar Arcos.
Top hat is perhaps the real Estar Arcos, or a duplicate created from the Burnbright accident
As unbelievable as it may be getting, Eric may still be a lich in this form. Liches are tricky...
