Subtitle: A Campaign Frame for Mortal Coil
From the introduction:
The Deathless Man is dead.
The Comte de Saint-Germain, master of the Trinosophistick Arts, maker of the elixir of immortality, confidant of Kings and instructor of Magi, died in a cold stone chamber in Eckernförde Castle on the early morning of February 27, 1784. The castle servants searched and itemized his effects: a few clothes and linens, some razors and mirrors and similar gentleman’s accoutrements, a rusty sword, two pistols, and 41 Danish ducats. This devoted bibliophile left no books. This composer of tunes for Bach, this friend of Telemann and Handel left no violin and no sheet music. This man who could grow diamonds from jeweler’s rouge left no gems.
Someone has stolen his work. Someone entered a ducal castle, guarded by servants human and inhuman. Someone managed to kill the Ascended Master, the True Immortal, in his place of greatest power and safety.
Someone has stolen the Saint-Germain Legacy.
