Where to find

Text

Some mortals might wonder why a mummy lord would abandon a subterranean crypt where he has abided for several human lifetimes, safely conducting delicate experiments into the very nature of life and its so-called opposite death, and trade all that for a perilous existence in a ramshackle waterfront house in the cesspit of Baldur's Gate.


Some mortals might be morons.


An entity of erudition and taste must naturally have a keen appreciation for what the surface world has to offer: the lilt of music and the lyricism of poetry, the cry of seagulls over Grey Harbour at sunset, the touch of a soft, non-decayed hand. You don't need a nose to savour a fine wine.


All of these things and more I have earned through my dedication to esoteric studies, and but all of these things, as well as rare alchemy ingredients, alembics, and athanors, cost money - a lot of it.


Thus my new career as a high-priced and exclusive mystic consultant to the wealthy of the Upper City. I have needs, and they will not be denied.
