In the time of unreckoning
Did the ground not gape?
Did the void not reveal our peril?
And did we not cry out in dismay?
Waste not thy breath in vain laments
But steel thy nerves for the task at hand
For the Trickster's deceits are legion
And He seeketh ever to return
Keep thy faith sharp and thy hammer to hand
Look not aside lest thee stray from the path
For the world doth hang in the balance
And the future lieth hostage to our care
-- From the collected writings of St. Fera
I've been down on my quota of lucrative jobs lately so I've been thinking about what would make a quick and easy score. I rejected a few ideas as being too risky and then remembered hearing about a rare relic supposedly kept at St. Fera's, a Hammerite monastery known for the quality of its beer and the fervor with which the Brothers espouse the Order.
The relic is a hammer reputed to have once belonged to St. Fera and said to have the power to heal. I don't know if I believe that but, true or not, it should fetch a nice sum. This city has no shortage of those with more money than sense.
But what's important for my purposes is that it's nearby and my sources tell me there is, or used to be, an entrance into the compound from the city sewers. If so, that makes my job much easier and I should be able to get in and out without being seen. Just what I need... a quick and easy job.
I'll still need to be careful, though. I hear they've recently adopted a rather rigorous recruiting practice so there are bound to be plenty of guards around. But I've done my share of sneaking around Hammers before... I don't think this job will present any real difficulties.
