This FM takes place between Thieves' Guild and The Sword.
"After the Ramirez and the Downwind Guild jobs, I decided to keep a low profile for some time in order to strengthen my network of acquaintances and associates. It didn't take long for some rich people to follow my trail and try to contact me; heh, I robbed and humiliated a Warden after all. One night a stranger knocked on my door and said his master wanted me to do a job for him. I was about to dismiss him when he managed to... distract me.
15,000 gold for the job, it's something I cannot refuse. The job is to break into a highly-secured embassy in the middle of Hightowne and steal a priceless diamond staff owned by an aristocrat from Blackbrook, a city-state currently at war with The City. That noble-man, Duke Whitehall is urging the Baron to cease the war between The City and Blackbrook for economic reasons, and my mysterious
employer doesn't want that to happen. By stealing his staff, he thinks that the Duke will blame The City for the theft and return to Blackbrook, cancelling all negotiations and thus allowing the war to continue.
Breaking into this embassy will be tough; since the meeting is to be held tomorrow, the security will be extra-heavy. The district is closed at night and a swarm of lawmen patrol the streets, but fortunately a friend of mine can let me through the Lampfire Lane gate for two pieces of silver. I also have a map of Hightowne that I managed to piece together over the years. I don't go often in there, but it's a pretty lucrative area despite the danger. Once there, I will have to carefully avoid being caught; the rooftops or the sewers should do the trick. My employer has given me instructions to follow with some information about the embassy itself, this will come in handy when I'm there, because I have the feeling this is not going to be a cakewalk..."
