FASTHELD - Word from the Shadow District these days is that a popular bard and horseman, known as Morten, died in a freak accident during a performance in the Fetters. Witnesses report that he was juggling pears and singing a bawdy tune while riding horseback when a street urchin scurried into the street, spooked the horse and caused it to rear. Morten tumbled off the saddle and struck his head on the pavement. Healers could do nothing for him. He died hours later.
