Cryptic D&D - Season 2
I send word of grave news. There is a traitor in your midst. While in Calimport I have searched very hard for the men who attacked us in the desert. The group is a small but formidable clan. In Calimport they are known as The Laughing Kismet. It appears you were double crossed by your large friend Davros.
He hired The Kismet to kidnap Gabrielle in hopes of obtaining the gem you sought. In Calimport there is a saying: “Money can buy a man a fleeting glimpse of luxury but power can rewrite the pages the fates bequeath you.” Seeing Davros preparing to leave, and with Gabrielle hinting at a powerful item that would give them riches untold, The Kimset plotted to betray their new ally.
Yet still, even though their debacle in the desert Davros has kept in contact with them, promising them riches untold and plotting against you. I have intercepted letters pertaining to your whereabouts and traveling plans meant for the Kimset to follow.
It would seem you have made many enemies that would come together against you, for I was not the only one seeking knowledge of The Laughing Kimset. The Sons of Sethos seek them to learn the whereabouts of the strangers who visited the city and slaughtered their brothers that were in Pasha Apep’s employ as his daughter Anahita’s body guards.
I only hope that this warning finds you before any of these threats do. May you be well, and may our paths cross again soon.
