Reward of 1000gp for retrieving Lamont – Enemy of the Duchy. The silver dragonknights have been sent by King after request from Duke. They seem to be making more of a headache for Lte. Dumain since they are not subtle. Many of the leaders seem to have gotten away. Mid and upper cliff activities have slowed. Under cliffs still have drug being pushed.
Belarra offers to scry on Black Hand members for Lte. (Serlo Strag) – he is a human. Speaking with 3 allies (2 dwarvers, 1 gnome). Telling where drugs should be sold and how to push those outside of Violetcliff (east). Appears to be in an alley near a pub with a ram’s head, but he is not Violetcliff.
Wizard you helped Lamont has been scrying on him. The cleric who was helping was executed.
Belarra and Mordecai attacked in market by assassin. Unable to catch. Woman had red markings on her face and dark cloak.
A guard – Evelatt Paddock – comes to supervise. The dead assassin has three phase moon tattoo which is symbol of Long Night.
Priestess Petronella helps with speak with dead. The headquarters are between the two moons. If contract completed, paid by those who sit high above. Only the cycles of the moon can end the contract. The light brings life, night death, the moon is our command and to only who we answer. Other assassin is their elite.
Long Night is assassin’s guild, not limited to borders of Silfrek. They are pricey. They use magic. There are rumors of them being on other planes. Between the moons probably refers to between the planes. They have death priests associated with them. Bhaal (god of murder) is their patron god.
Note areas in pass where things have been moved on Elfspond side but not able to determine much.
