Your Countess is not a ven easily worried or threatened. She’s crushed rivals under her fashionable heels and carried out daring schemes that would chill the Blood in others’ veins. You know it - you were an accomplice to many. Yet when she summons you tonight - a week before the Althua marking spring’s victory over winter - her unbroken mask of a face slips, and here she stands, mortal and still.
She speaks in a quiet voice as she tells you her greatest secret. Her greatest failure. Twenty years ago, she made a deal, a bargain, a very foolish decision. She made a promise to a young Elk, and this Summer, it will be time to make good on it, or lose everything she has and be forsworn. Her strong fingers brush against yellow gems adorning her necklace - something she’s worn for twenty years.
The price for her bargain was her eldest child - the one ven she is not willing to give up. This is her only chance, and she’s sending the best ven at her disposal - you. Your task is to attend the althua at Count Steele’s castle, and get him to call off her part of the bargain - by any means possible.
