The Savage Frontier
Werz was attacked by a pair of disgruntled ex-clansmen who wanted him dead for his part in their exile. It was Wolfe and Nitsuj who saw this, and distracted the assassins. Werz promised to pay them properly the next day.
When they met the following day, Werz paid them in obsidian, and asked that they smuggle a bag of raw gemstones to Blingdenstone. Wolfe and Nitsuj refused the task, being tired of all work and no upfront pay.
