I have fallen on hard times recently and had to relocate several times to avoid further assassination threats. The shoddy lockpicks I bought off Farkus's shop over in Newmarket finally broke and I'm out of funds. His stuff is the best but his prices are extremely steep and there's no way I can afford buying anything from him for now. Things can't get any worse, heh? Fortunately for me I think I found a potential job that should be pretty lucrative. Gossip is rather uninteresting most of the time, but I caught something the other day in a seedy pub. There is some oblewoman in town, Laby Sibel, who apparently owns some sort of magical trinket that should be worth a pretty penny if I can manage to steal it.
The trinket in question is some sort of magical wind chime or something.
The Sibel family is one of the oldest aristocratic families of The City and they have a nasty reputation. They own and old and crumbling palace in the Old Quarter, not far from the Wall and the river. The borough is quiet at night but lawmen are still on the prowl for interlopers such as myself. This job will be pretty tough without my lockpicks, but most of the stuff in the Old Quarter is very old so some door or another probably has a broken lock. And if I can't find a way down, I can always look for a way up...
