Lirea was a small city. In other empires, it might not have even been considered a city; the cities of Rozette were full of towering buildings and spires, and the cities of Sharzek were sprawling and wide, and full of magical constructions. But here, deep in the forest, cities were small, and packed.
Of course, there was enough happening in Lirea that even the cityfolk of Rozette or Sharzek might be overwhelmed.
And as it turned out, Galen was preparing to add a bit of excitement of his own to Lirea.
The job was simple, on the surface. Galen had been hired to take out a local man of power; a Dresall named Liria Markade. Markade was a man who liked to stay behind the scenes, but some of his dirty work had finally come to light.
Galen was currently waiting at a local inn, called the Horn and Cup, located near where Markade was sure to be. He had hired a couple of local adventurers to help him storm Markade's hideout. All in all, it appeared to be a simple job.
Of course, things were rarely that simple. The truth was a bit different. Galen had been hired by his superiors in the Grey Knights to take out Markade for one simple reason; Markade was also a Grey Knight. And he was abusing the powers and station he had earned. Markade was a blight on the Grey Knight name, and he needed to be taken out.
Galen had hired two adventurers, a sireel named Selven and a dvergr named Argus, but neither of them knew of Markade's status as a Grey Knight, and neither of them would know that Galen was one. Galen had traded his grey cloak for a simple brown one. For today, he would act as a simple mercenary.
So now he waited, sitting quietly at a table, nursing an ale, for his new comrades to show themselves. He wondered just how this was going to go.
*OOC* Okay, Selv, Shea, here we go. A couple of things to remember; first off, your characters do not know that Galen is a Grey Knight. He isn't wearing his normal cloak, and he is hiding the fact that the Grey Knights are the ones behind this whole adventure. Your characters won't figure it out unless Galen tells them, basically. Also, your characters are unaware that Markade, our target, is a Grey Knight. As far as your characters know, Galen is just some guy who wants Markade dead, and Markade is just some mob boss kind of guy. If you have any issues with this, let me know, alright?
