Big mouth Takas
As told by Rex
It’s been a while since I saw my brothers, not since we left the orphanage of Lathander and that is years ago. I hear stories about them in the city when I travel through on mining business. Takas is helping in the Cloudfang armory and rumor has it that Nines drops by now and then. Feathers as always lives in the shadows, I smile when I think of him swindling shiny from everyone high or low. They are my brothers - people shake their heads but they are. We share a childhood where our appearances made us stand out and where forces beyond this realm joined us together to an unknown destiny.
The rumors are not true they cannot be! I must to hurry to the orphanage, I hope my brothers do the same. As I make my way there trying not to look suspicious, my mind is working overtime to make head and tail of the rumors. They say that Glim our patron of the orphanage, a priest of Lathander is a killer. They say it happened 20 years ago and it was his friend and confidante the Lord of Riverhall he killed. The Riverhall family is one of the most powerful families in Anstice, I've not done business with them directly but there are rumors of a darker side than the one they show. They say Henrik Riverhall is on the way out to the orphanage with soldiers and will arrest Glim and possibly something far worse to the orphanage. I feel my heartbeat hasten when I think of the orphanage, my home.
Luckily the kids at the orphanage are safe and Glim got away. I hope our paths will meet again but for now we are running. Takas, your ego and big mouth may have gotten us in trouble. Sure we had to dispatch a few of the soldiers but they were asking for it I'm not sure we asked for the Riverhall family chasing us down, or maybe we did. Either way it is good to see them again though, my brothers.
