Nerandas requests a meeting. Usually I would send Nisimal, but a case of gout has rendered him useless. Given that you are his deputy, the task falls to you. Make haste to the wharf east of town and find out what troubles our friend.
Nerandas insists on total secrecy so you must use a passphrase. You will approach him and say, "The cliff-racer takes wing," to which he will reply, "Its stench remains."
I needn't remind you that the situation remains perilous so long as Dratha lives. Do not fail me.
