Previously in Dunraven… Winter has set in hard and fast daily snowfall, frigid temperatures, and a the sun has not been seen for more than two months. Everyday more and more peasants take up vigil outside of the constabulary, praying for the release of Father Devilyn.More peasants from the countryside pore in everyday to seek shelter from the terrible winter and accept food from Thayadrid Greatwyrm. To make matters worse an awful string of muggings has hit the village, the muggers all armed with expensive weaponry.
Dunraven’s special investigators in rout to the morning watch meeting, when tragedy strikes. a scream is heard and Kylris Terioloris is flung from her balcony. Kylris was a noble woman of ill repute, her husband owns a share in a coal mine to the north. Business takes him from Dunraven often which gives miss Terioloris time to play. Further investigation of the crime scene revels she suffered a dagger wound before she was thrown over the balcony, she also has a heart carved into her chest and a harps-cord sting was found at the scene as well. A bottle of half drank Feyberry wine is found outside of the house. Feyberry wine being a rare valuable vintage, obtainable only through the order of the fountain.
Later that same day a group of organized thugs make a daring attempt to rob Shaltoe‘s shop, but little did they know Dunraven’s special investigators were on the job that day. Between the daring antics of Zaine, and the onorthadox tactics of Taldus Servo the robbery was foiled. After later questioning of the thugs it was determined that most were simple peasants, armed and trained by mysterious men in the woods between Dunraven and Thorpeldown. The peasants were told if they stole enough and did there part they would be allowed to keep the weapons and join a group in the city. this group having accesses to food and shelter. The minority of the group all bore a talon tattoo somewhere on there body, and corroborated the peasants story. It was decided that those bearing the talon tattoo were members of the silver fingers.
The next morning is met with interesting news, a poster; Thayadrid Greatwyrm to adress the good people of Dunraven at dawn 2 days time. What could Thayadrid have to say? Another body is found. Liddy Furlow aka Twinkle a dancer at the Fuzzyslipper was found murdered in her own home. Twinkle was killed by dagger, and a heart was carved on her chest. She was walked home last night by her friend Sparkle, and a musician by the name of Halbros. They were the last to see her alive. Halbros plays the harpsichord.
