The Death Knight Chronicles

The Singing Necromancer

The five surviving members of the Skull-Scalps – Kephri, Percius, Rune, Lucan and the Captain; Tarag – return to the city of Norsig to seek re-employment with their former patron, Doge Syn Londo. Having had good dealings with the Skull-Scalps in the past, but wary after the massive losses they suffered in the Sinubian Campaign, Syn Londo decides to give the mercenaries a chance. A Karvannian Minstrel – Borrit Crowfinger, patroned by the Bleth family, had recently begun composing satirical songs about the Doge. Londo sent an assassin to silence Crowfinger. That was three days prior; and the assassin has not been seen since – the Minstrel, however, has.

Guarding the Doge while he slept (along with humiliating Londo’s older brother – Smelly Sneed, the Skull-Scalps encountered a pack of Wyrapir. Ending the battle abruptly, the pack’s leader – Nexull (an old friend of Tarag from before the Day of Harvest) – claimed to have been sent by Borrit Crowfinger whoose cult has bound the pack by their true names; forcing the monsters to do thier bidding. Tracking the cult to their lair in the catacombs built beneath the tower of Platel, the Skull-Scalps find themselves beset by Dragon-worshippers. However, while the revealed Necromancer – Borrit Crowfinger – escaped, the Skull-Scalps uncovered documents linking the cult to the Bleth family.

While Syn Londo was less than happy with the escape of the Necromancer, their efforts earned the Skull-Scalps a contract and residence in Norsig’s Blue Cat tavern.
