Ut Victor Spoilum and the Scales of War
An Assassin whose purpose is unknown, and carries a mysterious stone. God that sounds so lame.
An assassin by trade, Aodan was sent by his Masters into the town of Brindol. He was informed he would be given mission instructions later, and to integrate with the surrounding town while practicing his craft.
Except that no one in Brindol needs a trained assassin.
Finding a group of adventurers, Aodon assumed he would at least be able to perfect his stealth and blade arts.
Daily he pines for a contract. Someday, someone will pay him for an assassination. Until then, he'll continue to work for what he refers to as "royalties."
