LIGHTHOLDER - Rumors are quickly spreading through the Palace District after several witnesses reported seeing Bladesmen removing a cloak-shrouded body from the Smite Me Smithy last evening. The most common holds that the drunken proprietor of the shop killed a potential customer in a drunken rage and fled before Bladesmen arrived. Others have been positing that perhaps the opposite is true, that a criminal took advantage of the formidable smith's drunkenness to kill and rob him. A single, somewhat drunken man added his opinion to the rumour mill stating that he had heard from his uncle's employers half sister that: "That drunken lout was involved in shadow-dealings, he summoned some kind of shadow creature and it pulled out his innards and burnt him alive.
