The Assassin’s Trial
The problem with court politicians is their ability to stab someone in the back, repeatedly.
Skharr DeathEater, the Barbarian of Theros, friend of dwarves and emperors, is a liability.
The mysterious Dealer in Whispers and Death has let it be known in the right ears he can kill Skharr DeathEater. For a hell of a price.
The Dealer has never failed to kill their target in over the two hundred years of their existence, and they love a good challenge.
Can Skharr get himself out of this challenge? Will his friends allow him to go at it alone?
Even the Emperor is shocked to learn he must wait to find out what happens.
Will Skharr survive the Assassin’s Trial for a killing (this time) he didn’t commit? If he does, how will he attack a phantom no one can find?
