I've been contacted by a strange businessman named Ben Asra. Normally I would not bother but there
were two things that raised my interest. First the amount of gold he offered, second the man
himself. His skin was black, an uncommon sight in The City. He offered me the job on behalf of his
client, who wishes to remain in incognito. The task seems simple enough. Break into a shop in
Greyquarter, belonging to an alchemist named Blasio. Take his valuable recipe book supposedly
stuffed in a safe or something and leave in one piece. The contact also gave me a simple map of
the area which might provide helpful. The only restriction my client gave was to avoid killing
anyone during the job, but considering my skills this shouldn't be a problem.
According to the brief message my contact wrote me on the map he provided, my best bet to enter
Greyquarter is through its sewer system as the streets are supposed to be very well guarded, even
during night time. No surprise, considering this area is popular among rich noblemen. However,
this should be a nice opportunity to fetch a few trinkets while on my way to earn some extra cash.
The target shop is in a place called Greyquarter Market, residing in the western parts of The City.
Though I'm not very much interested in history, I've found out something interesting. Centuries ago
this quarter was founded by a former pirate named Captain Greyquarter -- hence the name of the
district. Later his land was recognized by the baron and granted a title, in exchange for leaving
The City's trade alone (and maybe targeting the competition instead). Nevertheless the Greyquarter
family accumulated quite a wealth and operated in the area as a separate town, until The City grew
large enough and absorbed it. Captain Greyquarter was also rumored to have some treasure hidden in
the arean never to be found by his successors... or anyone -- despite large scaled constructions
and renovations that drastically changed the area in the past few years. The legend of this
treasure seems to be just wild rumours made up by bored townspeople. Still, while I'm here, I
should take a look around and see if this treasure really exists, and could be retrieved by me.
The night will fall down soon. It's time to move.
