Lord Rician paces the floor of his spacious office. He seems to have spent the majority of his life within these four walls.
The brash ranger had managed to unnerve him. Was he a typical idiotic adventurer or did he really suspect who and what his daughter really is?
Still, he could take no chances. His two guards should be back soon with news of his death.
A timid knock on his door draws his attention back from his thoughts.
On being given permission to enter, a young clerk shuffles in.
Lord Rician can guess the news; his men have failed.
His two best men.
Turning to the clerk, Lord Rician gives the order to double the guard outside his daughter’s room.
