Lord Guldenberg might just be the wealthiest man in this part of
Hightowne. He's engaged in an ongoing competition with the other
nobles in this area, his two biggest rivals being Lord Ravenhurst
and Lord Leveilleur. Guldenberg is said to possess a large art
collection which contains the world-renowned painting
"Majesty and Splendour".
Earlier this week, somebody managed to steal a valuable gem from
Lord Ravenhurst: the tanzanite "Rachel". That dealt him quite the
blow, to both his wealth and his reputation.
Nobody knows the culprit's identity or how they carried out the
heist, but maybe I'll be able to find some clues during tonight's
foray. There's no better time for it. The hubbub over the theft
should create ample opportunity for me to sneak into Guldenberg's
palace and get my hands on that painting.
There's also a unique district underneath this part of Hightowne,
excavated from old ruins that date back centuries. The officials
tried to make use of those structures by converting them into
maintenance facilities and cheap apartments, but the place has
attracted nothing but vermin over the years. Now, it's fallen to
the hands of scoundrels and bandits.
The criminal activity in the underground district has increased
dramatically during recent years, which has been a huge problem
for Hightowne's blue-blooded residents. The officials have been
trying to control the situation by stepping up the number of
guards that patrol the streets, and they've even gone so far as
to lock the poor bastards up in the Undercity during the night.
Now that my competition's out of the picture, I should set about
making my move. Maybe I'll even find another way into the Undercity...
