Where to find

On a bookshelf on the first floor of Golbraith's home.


Perhaps because he rose from humble beginnings before becoming a Duke of Baldur's Gate, Abdel Adrian made a habit of donning a hooded cloak and roaming his city's streets incognito, observing the citizenry and 'taking the pulse of the town', as he used to put it. It was on one of these urban excursions that I first met him, at an outside table on the Elfsong's terrace, when we both summoned the same server and ended up buying each other's ales. We struck up a conversation, and upon finding that I was an adventurer, my new friend plied me with questions about my trade as a monster hunter. He soon let slip that he once followed the adventurers' trade, and thereafter we met regularly to share a mug or two and talk tales and tactics.

It was some tendays before I realised my interlocutor was none other than the city's Grand Duke, by which time we were already fast friends, so I wasn't overawed at sharing a table with him.

[This is followed by a rambling account of Golbraith's history with Duke Adrian, consisting primarily of a list of what stories Golbraith told the duke about himself.]
