It seems that even the sobriety of Adrian’s funeral was not enough to calm the greed of the Gate’s darkest souls. The night following the beloved duke’s funeral a city official was ruthlessly attacked by thugs. Nant Thangol, often called the basilisk, was attacked on his way home and robbed that night of the city profits. The brave Flaming Fist guards that were guarding Nant were able to beat off the attackers, only one sustaining major injury (a broken leg) but the days profits for the city were lost. The outer city’s citizens have cheered the basilisk’s humiliation and since that day two other officials have been target in the same way. Much to the outer city’s delight.
