Previously in Dunraven…
The town is amiss, the captain of the watch is missing, the lord is bedridden with a terrible illness and the lord’s son and last surviving heir to Dunraven has been murdered by hobgoblins. A group of local adventurers and an outside mercenary or two, set around a table in the Ravens Nest, when adventure finds them. Recently promoted 1st Sargent Alhalore informs the would be heroes that the guard is hiring special investigators to look in to the Death of young Weston Dunraven the 6th. The Adventures head to Dunraven Manor, where they are introduced to Barnard the lords chief administrator and the lord of Dunraven himself. The lord seems very ill, but this give Renfell a chance to look at the Trident of Dunraven. After swearing an oath to defend Dunraven, its people and the Dunraven family, the local adventurers set out to find clues.
A weapon found at the scene of the crime bearing the mark of a local blacksmith brings the investigators to Cane Riden’s shop in Dunraven. Cane admits to being hired by Shaltoe to make several unmarked long-swords and javelins, but a mistake made by Canes apprentice caused a marked sword to end up at the scene of the crime. Cane seemed to know nothing of the criminals and was eager to help when informed tht his swords took the life of his lords son. the investigators quickly moved to speak with Shaltoe. Shaltoe divulges he acquired the arms for a man with a shaved head and a distinctive scare on his right cheek. The man refused to give his real name, but Shaltoe being the shrewd business gnome that he is had the man followed and told the investigators he was staying at the Fuzzy Slipper in the penthouse.
It proved difficult for the investigators to infiltrate the Fuzzy Slipper during the day due to the Slippers top notch Blackhammer security. 1st Sargent Alhalore had a better idea, to enter the club incognito later that night.
