    He sat amongst the pews, examining the knives...

    Which one shall I use tonight? All of them.. so very sharp. All of them.. so very pretty.

    He often came to the shelter of the Trinsic Church. Not for faith or healing, but for the desire to learn all he could about Trinsic. How it worked. How it lived. How it bleeds.

    He holds a small hooked edge knife, the perfect weapon for a stealthy but violent attack. For weeks he'd been infiltrating. Blending in among the local citizenry. His lust for revenge simmering to the boiling point. Tonight, he has to kill.

    Yes.. Tonight it starts. Tonight we make them feel what it's like. Tonight we make THEM hurt.

    Later that night

    A citizen enters the Town Hall library, hastily searching through the stacked runebooks. He moves. At first slowly, lurking in the shadows, unseen and unheard.

    So close. Here I come. Don't be afraid, it will be over soon.

    Only inches behind her now, he moves, fast as the wind, violent as the hurricane.

    [​IMG]

    She dies before she hits the ground, throat cut, guts ripped, blood soaking the Library floor.

    [​IMG]

    He leaves as easily and silently as he entered. In the morning they'd find her, body cold as the night. They would also find his scrawled note, written in the victims blood. But that is all they would find, and he would remain unseen, waiting for his next victim.

    The mood in the Keg and Anchor was somber. It’s normally jovial atmosphere dampened by the gruesome murder last night at the Trinsic Town Hall.

    The eyes of all in the room shifted around nervously. They knew the murderer could be right here, sitting among them.

    Jack Scallywag and Lt. Governor @Mordoc sat at the corner table, drinking a bottle of Trinsican red and playing cards. A sudden gust of wind slammed the front door open then closed with a loud bang. Mordoc glanced over, his hand scrambling to the hilt of his blade. Jack took the opportunity to slip the Ace from his sleeve into his card hand.

    “This damned murder has got the whole city spooked.” Mordoc said, “I haven’t seen the city so jumpy since the days of the Carver”.

    “There always seems to be some sick bastard out to get us. We’ll catch up with them sooner or later and I’ll have his head.” Jack replied casually. “More importantly.. can you beat two pair, Aces over Threes?” Jack said laying his cards down with that evil, crooked smile.

    Mordoc eyed Jack suspiciously before throwing his cards down and handing over his coin purse. “Why don’t you use that money to re-equip the Guard and find this monster.”

    “Of course Lieutenant! But first… Barmaid! Another bottle!”

    Avalon Alduin had nattered on and on about the latest atrocity that had befallen a Trinsician citizen, the injustice, the horror.. You'd think he'd be used to this by now.. After a while Achilles had tuned him out, it wasn't until hours later that something popped into his head, while on patrol, something that bothered him... Avalon had said something about putting the guard on double duty.... weren't we already being pushed hard enough? The guard needed their down time so they could stay sharp and focused! Besides, who would drink the ale?

    During his patrols, Achilles spent hours searching the stomping grounds, the guard hall, the town hall, even the new bordello, trying to find any sign of @Jack Scallywag, if anyone could put a stop to this it was Jack.. But he was nowhere to be found.. That was unlike Jack... he rarely missed a patrol these days, like he was making up for lost time...

    Entering the Keg & Anchor, figuring to retrace Jacks' steps, Achilles heard from the barmaid..
    "Jack left here on his own too feet... he was wobbling back and forth, he might have been drunk... again.." giggling "But he still took the time to look back and wink as he was leaving.. eyeing me up and down... there's something special about that Scallywag..." now that was more like Jack.. but where had he gotten to? Most likely passed out under a bush somewhere.. Hopefully nothing bad has happened to him....

    The city was shaken. Rumors, gossip and accusations abound. The seeds of dissension had been sown and it was time to water the ground with more blood.

    With the Trinsic Town Hall under close watch by the guards, he moves unseen outside the gates. He spots a Trinsic Orphan playing... so innocent... so young... so perfect.

    [​IMG]

    At first he watches from the trees, observing and plotting. He then reveals himself and gently calls to the boy.

    [​IMG]
    Hesitant at first, the boy eyes the bread hungrily. "What's your name young one?" The unseen asks.

    "Billy." The boy answers. "What's yours?"

    "Come close, have a bite to eat I know you are hungry. Eat first, then we'll talk." The boy approaches cautiously and reaches for the bread.

    Yes, yes... just a little closer...

    As soon as his fingers touch the bread, the knife comes out, he buries it hilt deep into his neck. Blood spurts, his cries gurgling in his throat.

    [​IMG]
    The kill alone is not enough. A message must be sent. He moves his dagger in sawing motions, ripping the corpse limb from limb.

    [​IMG]
    He stands over the ruined corpse, admiring his handiwork.

    There are no innocents here, they are all responsible, they will all BLEED

    He moves back into the forest, unseen....
