    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

    Summary

    It all starts with a note.

    Well, that's not technically accurate. For his team of detectives, it starts with a trio of burning wagons on a lonely stretch of road just outside Phandalin, dying flames flickering dully as dawn breaks over a new day. For the world, it will start with the news of the disappearance of the Phoenix Fire Gauntlet, an ancient relic stolen from the wreckage before all traces of the culprit burned away.

    But for Kravitz, it starts with a note.

    Summary

    "Then you don't know me," Taako says. "Because I don't give a shit. About other people."

    "You saved the world," Magnus insists a bit pleadingly, with a quality Taako quietly resents.

    "It was a job, bubbeleh," Taako shrugs. His voice wavers, for just a moment, before Taako wrestles it back. "Just a job."

    Life is short and some people keep rushing through it.

    Summary

    "I want you to wear something for me, something of mine.”

    Kravitz's eyebrows immediately raise in curiosity; he had clearly been expecting something else.

    “That's. I—” Kravitz swallows, his adam’s apple bobbing just above the taut scar marring his throat. “Okay.”

    "Just like that, huh?"

    Summary

    She pushes back her hood, exposing the points of her ears. It is all of thirty seconds before the humans start to notice—they look at her with surprise, then confusion, then rage. She is undaunted.

    Let them see.

    Let them know a Dalish elf has come to Wycome.
