One branch of the Mysterious Benefactor story

Your benefactor knocks on your door

Your mysterious patron is a Red-robed Monk of the Orient. He clicks a bead necklace nervously as he introduces himself. It seems that his disciple has gone missing.

Throw him out on his ear

The hat was nice, but who does this monk think he is? You will not be importuned in your lodgings!

Track down the disciple

A skinny fellow with a begging bowl. Not much to go on, but you know something of the tangle of footpad-haunted alleys where he went missing.
A challenge for your Shadowy quality.

The Lady and the Monk

The Red-robed Monk is growing increasingly concerned for his disciple. The only lead you have is an elegant tattooed lady. You've heard it said that she's a spy of some sort.

Skulk around where spies loiter

Clathermont's Tattoo Parlour and Tyrant's Gardens are the most notorious haunts, but you know other places. You must be subtle.

An evening's work at the carnival

The last lead you had on the Red-robed Monk's disciple is that he went to Mrs Plenty's Most Distracting Carnival.

Look for the disciple

You could blend into the carnival crowds and see if he's here.

The fate of a disciple

The last lead you had on the Red-robed Monk's disciple is that he went to Mrs Plenty's Most Distracting Carnival.

Accept a bribe to leave him be

The disciple has joined the Great Game and is doing very well for himself. Of course, there will be a price to pay for that, but for now he is happy. The old monk will have to do without him.

Encourage him to return to the Monk

A life of spiritual enrichment is far preferable to the tawdry riches and endless danger of the Game. Or perhaps the monk's simple gift moved you. It hardly matters: the disciple must return.


A past benefactor

Your benefactor! Things seemed so simple then. A friend, a gift, a mission. Perhaps one day you'll have a protege of your own.
