I have a simple job planned for this evening.
Break into a guarded mansion, steal another fat
nobleman's priceless trinket, and leave quietly.
Lord Bafford is out of town, and rumour has it
that the captain of his house guard went with
him, as a bodyguard. The time is ripe for a bit of burglary.
The front gate of Lord Bafford's manor is always
guarded, and the main street is far too exposed.
But Cutty tells me there's a better way in, around to the
side, more 'out of the way'. One guard, and likely no
witnesses to complicate matters.
The piece Cutty wants is a sceptre: silver, jewels...the usual adornments. It
should command a high price. Bafford, like most of his kind, probably keeps his
treasures on the top floor of the place, close to his heart, and far from his
No point in waiting. I have Cutty's old sketches of the place, and everyone
who's going to be asleep inside already is. It's time to begin.
