Ebon Tendrils: Episode One
A One-Round Living City Tournament
From the introduction:
The letter each of you received contained the same message, leading you here, to a house in the upper class district. The home gives some evidence of neglect, perhaps, you imagine, its owner died during the current war. Of its new owner, a man named Beliakas, you know nothing but that contained in his inviting missive:
“I do not know you, but I do know what you have achieved. More importantly, I have seen what you will achieve. I require your services for a matter of utmost importance to the city of Ravens Bluff. If you care for this metropolis, and I know you do, please meet me this evening at my residence in the Garden Quarter. I must apologize for the unorthodox nature of this request, but our need is urgent. I ask only that you trust me.
