Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
This simple cape was the property of a young gambler who made her living at dice. She played and cheated her way across the Dyrwood, and she was playing a game with the off-duty soldiers at Hel's Gate Citadel when an extra die clattered out of her sleeve. She fled, and the drunken soldiers at the table grabbed their weapons and gave chase.

The alarm went up across the citadel, and the gambler dodged the spears and arrows of the emerging guards as she made her way to the edge of the island. When she reached the cliffs, she skidded to a halt, cast a single glance at the persuing soldiers, and tumbled into the sea. Half of the guards on duty that night tried to claim credit for the arrow or spear that must have knocked her into the water, but when they retrieved her cape from the branch that had snagged it, they found that it was whole. Her body was never found.
