The Scales of War
Mysterious figure inciting trouble in The Vale
Little is known of The Emissary other than the mysterious figure has penned his name to letters inciting both Tusk and Sinruth into attacking the Vale.
It is beleived that Modra was The Emissary; working on behalf of Sarshan.
The letter to Sinruth – Rescue at Rivenroar
The Red Hand will rise again! The other remnants take great cheer in your recent attacks on commerce coming into The Blight That is Brindol.
We’re particularly pleased with your ability to inspire a fighting spirit in others, whether they have true goblin blood or merely wish they did. To be blunt, we think you should have many more soldiers under your command.
Many, many more.
And recent events have rendered some remnants leaderless. With a bold stroke on your part, the remnants would rally to the Red Hand you so proudly display.
As your bold stroke, do this: Attack the The Blight That is Brindol by night. Focus your efforts on their Hall of Great Valor, for it mocks the many hard-won victories by the first Red Hand of Doom. Take from them the spoils of war they shamelessly hang on their walls and bring those antiques back to Rivenroar.
Do this before the moon is next full. And with regard to your previous question, turning over captives to your unliving allies at Rivenroar is perfectly acceptable. War sometimes makes strange bedfellows, and we appreciate how you’ve united such disparate forces under your banner. Whatever prisoners you take from Rivenroar you can give to the Wight.
Fight with the valor of your ancestors, Sinruth. And keep your hands stained red with the blood of the weak!
I will visit you again next month, at a time of my choosing.
Letter to Tusk – Siege at Bordins Watch
Below is the gist of the letter written to Tusk, the leader of the Orcs. The letter indicated that the dark creepers had been selling weapons to the Orcs in an effort to outfit them for some coming war. Furthermore, the writer of the letter agreed to provide Tusk with tactical information regarding the defenses of Overlook and the location of the tunnels in an effort to help them succeed in their attack. This letter was signed by The Emissary.
