Intruder (Steffen Lehnert)
The nobility of the City provide a solid base of income for people like me, especially if you know where to look. Of course, breaking into well-guarded estates is dangerous and requires proper preparation. A little tip is all it takes to convince most servants to share some information with folks like me. One of the best sources of information, Sarah, works at the Rumford Manor and has been supplying me and Basso with a constant stream of useful gossip. However, nothing has been heard of her for the last two weeks. Basso and Jenivere want to meet me at the Crippled Burrick Inn to decide what we are going to do about her. Personally, I don't really care about her, but if she's
been caught she might tell the blue coats about our little deal.
Four months ago, Sir Balin Rumford, the younger brother of old Rumford, returned from war against the city of Blackbrook. According to what I've heard, he is one of the Baron's best men. I spoke to some men who'd fought under his command and he is said to be always right in the thick of battle, showing no fear and no mercy at all. But something must have happended to him when he was commissioned with exploring a mine used as a hideout by enemy troops. None of his men returned, apart from him. Since then, a dark aura seems to surround his presence. When he returned to the City, his brother held a festival for him at the Rumford Manor, but Balin didn't even show up. Shortly after, it became quiet in the manor and not much was heard of its former owners again. A couple of weeks later, Balin became the new landlord of the manor and started to extend the building. There are only rumors about what happened to the old Rumfords as no one has seen them again.
I bet that Sarah's disappearance shortly after Balin's return is no coincidence. There's something foul going on and, knowing my luck, I'll get dragged right into the middle of it...
