Rumor has it that Lord Alexander owns a prized scepter that has been passed down through the generations. I have experience stealing scepters and this one is guaranteed to be more valuable than the one I got from Lord Bafford. It's a good enough reason to pay a visit to Lord Alexander's mansion. A trusted source told me that His Lordship is on holiday out of the city with his wife. Still, I don't expect to be a welcome guest on his property.
There's no doubt that the scepter is well protected, and I have yet to decide which strategy is best for this job. I'm not a fan of front doors, as they're always well-guarded, however this time it may be worth the risk if I'm able to sneak past the guards. I’ll be close to Alexander's bedroom, which is the perfect place to look for information on the scepter's whereabouts.
The mansion also has a side gate, which is usually protected by a single swordsman. If I decide to go that way, I'll have to find my way past the guards on the inside. Of course, there's also a third option. A careless servant could have left an open window and I won't forget to bring some rope arrows just in case.
Patience is not one on my virtues, so there's no point in waiting – I’ll just head in and improvise. It's time to reinforce my reputation as a stealer of royal symbols. Who knows? I may be reborn as a noble in my next life.
