Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Courier Service[edit]

Your contact is far too busy for menial tasks

When your vampire bloodline needs you, you receive a simple notification:

You have received a letter.

Open the letter and read it:

(Player's name),
(Bloodline) summon you
to (town). Look for
me there and present this
letter.
With dying breath,
(Vampire's name)

Travel to the town mentioned in the letter and find the location of your vampire contact by asking around. Meet the vampire while you are carrying the letter and you will be given a task:

"(Player's first name), I need you to deliver a letter to an ally of (bloodline). (Pawn's name) will wait for you for no more than (time limit) nights at (pawn's building) in (pawn's town). Do not miss the appointment. I will expect you back here in (time limit) nights. Goodbye."

Sending A Message[edit]

Dealing with vampires has made this poor soul a nervous wreck

You now have a second letter in your possession. It reads:

(Pawn's name),
We have heard that once again the (ruler's title)
is considering increasing the number of
patrols in (region) during the night
to combat the unexplained attacks. (ruler's title)
(regional ruler's title) will be receiving a visitor
from (bloodline) so this situation will
be reasonably resolved.
Please assist in this matter as per
the usual plan. (Bloodline) are not
amused that we must continually address
this same potential problem.
The (ruler's title)'s family has grown quite
healthy incidentally. Not a coincidence.
Or a situation without a remedy.
-- (Vampire's name)

Make your way to the second town and learn where the bloodline's human pawn is located by asking around in town. Meet the pawn and deliver the letter from your vampire contact. Upon receiving the letter, the pawn will say:

"Yes, my name is (pawn's name). Y-you must be (player's name). Tell (vampire's name) that I'll take care of everything. Make sure (he/she) knows I'm loyal. Nothing's changed. Thank you. I'll make sure everything's fine."

After you have delivered the letter, return to the vampire to collect your reward, a random magical item.

Reward[edit]

When you speak to the vampire after you have delivered the letter, you will hear:

"Thank you for delivering that letter so promptly, (player's first name). It was rather important. I have also been busy. Take this (magical item) as a gift for a job well done."
