A Betrayal of Ravens
A covert organization of knives-for-higher based in Masklynn. Predominantly assassins, the syndicate was constantly involved in the town’s political conspiracy, including the assassination of many of the previous mayors and mayoral candidates. Dabbling in dark arts, these murderers also harbored slight arcane abilities. An extreme example of this was their leader, an Arcane Trickster who could fly and possessed a Silver Mask that could shoot out a Cone of Cold.
Named for their distinctive dark, drab cloaks which provided obscurity, the standing order by decree of the Mayor was to execute these men on sight. Corruption was well in place, and such official executions never took place.
The PCs exterminated every last assassin under the charge of Raziel LeShardue. The Prince needed to protect the incumbent Mayor Gilby, and secure his place in that year’s election. The only way he could think of doing this is by defanging this beast that plagued him.
