Advanced Ultimate Sandbox
With her reputation and fame preceding her, she never had to buy, from her own purse, a sip of drink, a bite of food, a stitch of clothes, a string of lute, or a place of rest.
Hemligt became acquainted with Lord Highspur when she was a young elf, but no means young according to human standards. Before the time of their meeting, she loved to travel from town-to-town dancing, performing, and charming money and secrets out of most of those town’s folk. Hemligt did not discriminate patrons based upon status nor class. She has been known to accompany the highest lords and ladies to court and entertain the lowliest fisherman in dockside taverns.
During her trek across Teldor, Hemligt made many friends and learned to discern the hopes, dreams, desires, hatred, rumors, and guiles of most. With her reputation and fame preceding her, she never had to buy, from her own purse, a sip of drink, a bite of food, a stitch of clothes, a string of lute, or a place of rest.
Hemligt’s accumulation of patrons and secrets, made her in just the right kind of spirits to agree to such an acquaintance as Lord Highspur. They met during a three-day celebration of an affluent couple. Hemligt was accompanying another lord. Lord Highspur was making an appearance and looking for opportunities and ventures as men in his position must. After the few days of parry and riposte, they had seen enough of each-other to realize they each have just what the other is looking for in a patronage.
It has been many years since that night. Hemligt has served Lord Highspur well by supplying him with information about the deeds, dealings, successes and failures of any person of interests to him. She gladly circulates the word of his good name and reputation (and sometimes his failings when it suits her). Hemligt hoped to gain as much in fame, if not a little in infamy, along the way.
