You find a small note on your chair...

As you enter the tavern, you and your friends make your way over to a table near the hearth and wave over the skinny young mouse haired waitress.

As you take your seat, you feel, or rather hear the sound of paper sliding between your britches and the wood of your seat. Briefly elevating yourself and reaching down, you settle back into your seat and get a batter look at the rough piece of parchment now in your left hand.

It reads:
"Dear inhabitant of the River Kingdoms,

Living in a frontier land can be challenging at the best of times. There are all kinds of characters trying to make their fortune in these parts, and still so little civilization for so much wilderness. We all appreciate the authorities and the efforts they are making to try to keep the peace and deliver justice, but far too often people are still taken advantage of, and justice left undone.

Did you know that the laws here don't protect you much further than the walls of our few larger settlements? Get mugged, despoiled, and left clinging to your life by a thread while seeking your fortune out in the rich wilds and what can you expect from the guard? You'd be lucky indeed to be wished well in your recovery. They'll merely tell you to pay more money next time for an armed escort. But justice? Even if you know the precise identity of the perpetrator? Absolutely not.

Well, not from the guard in any case. You might be pleased to know, however, that there are concerned citizens who are interested in seeing that you get what you deserve: justice! It's quite simple really. Bring the identity of the perpetrator(s) as well as where the incident occurred, and we'll be happy to take matters from there.

As you can imagine, we wish to remain discreet. If you wish to contact us, send a couriered letter to our intermediary who receives mail under the alias 'Phantasm' and he'll arrange a meeting with you to discuss terms.

Be well, people of the River Kingdoms, and don't let your enemies, nemesis, annoying neighbors, or mother-in-laws go unpunished any longer.

Sincerely,

The Dark One"

Some chartered companies form up by advertising and openly recruiting. Some, however, wish to remain more discreet. Some may be more comfortable with a membership anonymous to outsiders.

A supposed, and very much hypothetical assassin's guild might drop a hint here and there about their existence, but all the organizing takes place behind closed doors (aka through PMs, not open forum posts).

Be well, River Kingdoms, and know that there is indeed someone out there willing to do something about the thugs who got away with ambushing you, or the damned neighbor's dog who won't stop barking, or that shady merchant who charged you too much for cheese last week.

Justice will be yours!

...for a price...

That's not as good as the small note someone I know left during a larp.

"If you're reading this note, you should know that I prepared Explosive Runes this morning."

Welcome to "The Charter that shall not be Named"! Seriously, we were wondering when you would get to it Blaeringr. Good luck with your machinations...may your daggers remain keen, and your shadows deep.

How do you feel about subcontracting?

That's a matter to discuss via PM.

Update: as far as sub-contracting, I can now give an answer that does not need to be strictly discussed via PM:

There will be absolutely no direct communication. Intermediary companies (yes, plural) will be set up to keep a discreet buffer between clients, sub-contractees, and us. We'd rather not go around telling people any more about us than we need to. We'd rather no outsiders ever even know so much as what we call ourselves.

Things just got a bit more exciting knowing how much thought they're putting into assassination specifically. Can't wait to read the future about it.


Very nice, hopefully you can gain quite some work from this. :P

... OH MY GOD, YOU'RE THE DARK BROTHERHOOD, AREN'T YOU?!

Dark brotherhood would leave that same note with black makeup on.

*sigh* I have GOT to get rid of that chair. People keep leaving notes on it!

Personally, I'm holding out for the secret organization that leaves small chairs on my notes.
