Investigate the murder of a tax collector in Seyda Neen.
"I'm fine, thank you. What can I do for you?"
- murder of Processus Vitellius "That fetcher? You're damn right I did him in, and a good thing, too. He was skimming a load of money from all of us honest people; overcharging us on our taxes and keeping the difference for himself. He was always flaunting his money around, showing off his new clothes and jewels. So, I killed the bastard, and left his body out there to rot, with all his ill-begotten gold still on him."
- I believe what you say. I'll say nothing to the authorities. "Well, it's the truth. They've all been gouging us for years. The whole office is corrupt, I tell you. One of these days, they'll get exposed, I swear it! Here, though. This was his ring. Looks like his woman gave it to him. She should probably have it. She wasn't to blame in all this."
- Sorry, that is no excuse for murder, and your punishment has been decided. "You're one of them, huh? Come to kill me? Well, give it your best shot, Imperial. I've no problem spilling more of the blood of the Emperor's lackeys!"
- His house is good for a starting player, as it has a sleeping hammock, a stat-increasing book, a modest amount of storage space, and it is close to town.
