An associate of mine has learned through his sources that a certain noblewoman in Downtowne, Lady Blexham, has a little burrick problem. She heard sounds coming from an unspecified room in her manor and had a team of workers investigate. They apparently uncovered a network of tunnels the beasts had dug.
One of the workers reportedly told an innkeeper after a bit too much ale that they also found Hammerite crypts but did not investigate further for fear of getting lost. It so happens that the Sootchime church had a tomb underneath it that got disconnected from it about a century ago after an earthquake, and that this tomb reportedly contains the manuscript of a prayer book buried with its author, now considered a saint. This prayer book is widely available now through printed and manuscript copies, but obtaining the original should be very lucrative. Since getting to the tomb through the church hasn’t been possible for so long, it appears my way there is through these burrick tunnels.
My first task is to make my way to Blexham Manor that lies to the south, down the hill. Sootchime District’s elevation is pretty steep but the canals can provide a fast way to get there as long as I don’t get dashed to bits by the waterfalls. This associate of mine also prepared a cache of equipment I can pick up en route. I have it marked on my map. The workers reinforced the wall with thick, impenetrable steel plates but the drunk also said that there’s probably a weakened wall or two in the manor that I could use to reach the tunnels.
I’m not certain the crypts these guys found contain what I’m looking for, so in case this job turns out to be a dud I should pick up some things for myself on the way to Blexham Manor. Time to make a living, I guess.
