The assassination of Valinor Tah'Re Edit

He gathered a party of assassins to sneak in and take the emperor hostage, using this to negotiate with the Thex family and in turn release the races from their subjugation, only to be ratted out and the plan ruined. He alone escaped the ambush of his party and decided he would wait no longer. He alone scaled the palace in Takish'Hiz and entered an open window that, unbeknownst to him, led him into the room of the sleeping prince Miragul, his former student. He tried to reason with the boy and placate him but it was of no use, the boy had grown into a dal of spoilt mischief and entitlement. The halfling ran from the boy after he attacked and was chased out of the palace barely escaping death, of which four other guards lost their lives because of the princes carelessness. It is unknown what happened to the elder halfling after this escape.

Party of Assassins Edit

  • Castigan - an apologetic elven slaver who stationed ogres within the palace
  • Drek - a dwarf with connections for supplies, he was the rat that led to the capture of the group.

The party was seen being sent to their execution.
