"A wall at arms length"
"A splinter delivered in flight"
"Tooth of the forge"
The note is handwritten and dated from shortly before the events in the tower were likely to take place. It reads:
"Please inform the apprentice that they are no longer to dump their failed alchemical experiments into the sewer. One can only wonder how those potions affect the water under the city."
The signature is indecipherable.
By the nature of the note, it is clear that the body upon which it was found was that of a spy in Aarin Gend's employ. His mission had been to protect Lady Aribeth from any hidden dangers that may have befallen her.
