The Dark City

The Emerald Enigma (part 1)
Prelude 1

Recruitment Master Noveticus limp his way towards the grand hall of the Guild muttering to himself many thoughts from the past few days. A month prior, against his knowledge, the upstart Officer Callowan had sent a team to the Gannu Mine. Now reports have stated a new force, hired by the Beezal’s themselves had gone to the site making his own operations more difficult. Worse yet, the meddling gnome and elf were involved.

The two had already been a sore spot to the Recruitment Master. Both were the students of the old retired thief Garrick who now was rotting in the Guild’s dungeon. The elf was member of that infernal circle of Druids that move through the groves and trees at night. The gnome’s origins were still unknown to Noveticus but an old report had discover he had once work for that manipulative she- devil Deliha. That alone was enough to take caution with this gnome. Five years ago the two worked with Garrick where they nearly destroyed one of Noveticu’s opperations. Fearful that Garrick had some knowledge, Noveticus utilized an eager Dragon-Spawn kolbold that he found a month prior. Having it appear as an ally, it would allow him tyo spy in the ranks of the former theif. But the Spawn quickly ran off with wild tales of phantom churches and crystal eyed creatures leaving Garrick free from the Guild’s and Noveticus’s spying eye. That only made the Recruitment Master more determined to discover what the Old thief was up to.

The day came finally when his suspicions were confirmed. The old fool Garrick got himself arrested protecting that annoying gnome. Noveticus investigated further and his spies found that Garrick was pulling jobs despite his retired status. Noveticus was outraged and ordered that old man be killed in his cell. But that Guild Grand Master, Grav had other ideas: seeing that the gnome skipped town leaving his mentor to rot in a prison would serve as adequate punishment for Garrick. Noveticus reluctantly agreed and let the matter rest.

Then suddenly the gnome returned and negotiated Garrick’s release. Noveticus was once again furious and arranged to kidnap Garrick from his cell prior to his freedom. Now with the old thief in the Guilds dungeon, a proper punishment could be awarded.

However, the issue with the Gannu Mine had to be resolved. Noveticus called for a meeting with the Guild Master to discuss Callowan’s venture. Hopefully the Guild Master would be convinced that the reckless behavior of the Beguiling youth should be reign in before more trouble begins to brew. But when he threw open the doors to the meeting hall he found that the meeting had started without him. The Guild Officers quickly rose from their seats to salute him, all save Callowan, the Grand Master and the old thief Garrick.

“Your late”, the old thief jeered.
