I was approached by Shylock, a fence I often use, with a story about his father. It seems that a few weeks ago, a squad of the Baron’s Imperial Guard broke into his house in the middle of the night, dragged his father out of bed, arrested him and threw him into the Baron's Imperial Prison. No explanation was given and he's been denied any visitors.
Recently, when Shylock inquired about his father, he was told there was no such prisoner and never had been. Despite his continuous appeals, he's been unable to get any information from prison officials about the fate or whereabouts of his father. All he knows is that his father was kept in cell six, which he learned indirectly from someone who works at the prison.
Shylock wants me to get into the prison and find out what happened to his father. He offered me a small bag of gold for the assignment. It'll do little more than cover expenses but Shylock's a good fellow and a valuable resource... a reliable fence is hard to come by. Besides, it is a baronial prison, after all. I should be able to find something to make it worth my time.
The job presents some unique challenges, though. The prison is small but the Baron's guards are smarter and tougher than your everyday bulldog, so it looks like some creative subterfuge is in order. I've managed to "acquire" papers assigning me to the prison as a new assistant cook. Looks like it's time for a little undercover work.
