A tavern in Britain…

Magnus read over the report and rubbed his eyes. He was missing something. Five weeks, and there was still no solution to this mystery. He tried to go through the pieces again:

Joseph Wainwright was a Royal Spy who had been trustworthy for years. He was put in charge of keeping an eye on Trinsic Felucca. Some person known only as “Pauper” had turned him or bribed him. Because of this, some group of killers had been able to attack and kill Clainin there while no one was watching…

Joseph knew too much and was on the run. The Royal Spies were after him. He was trapped in Wind. Pauper had sent forces to distract the Royal Spies, helping Joseph to escape, only to kill him shortly afterwards…

A meer dignitary murdered. The killer given the means by the same Pauper. This killer cannot be questioned as she forced the spies into a deadly encounter that resulted in her death. The only clue about Pauper is a child’s poem…

Magnus’s spy in Vesper, Albert, requests help, convinced someone is trying to kill him. An investigation shows Pauper’s influence in Vesper and Buc’s Den…

The orcs were building war machines, protected by blackrock. Their supplier of both materials and methods is the same criminal, a criminal who can secure safe transport of such materials across Britannia’s own roads…

A mysterious mine far to the south of Britain, Vesper, or the Orc Caves, filled with strange blackrock ore. Again, the cave has threads leading back to Pauper, and Pauper’s agents knew his spies were coming…

Magnus started plotting the spots on a map. The crimes were large and far apart. It would take enormous power and resources to do these things. Who had these sort of resources?

Magnus’s thoughts were interrupted by a messenger with a letter. It was from Tomas Savos. Magnus opened the letter.

“That’s not good.”
