Palanthas – Early Kirinor a knight was found murdered in a warehouse in the waterfront.

The knight was discovered by Remus Newhaven, a member of the City Guard. "The body of the knight bore several knife wounds, but perhaps the most distressing thing," reported Newhaven, "was the word "Androctus" carved into his breastplate."

A representative of the Knights of Solamnia, Owen Wagner, Knight of the Sword, identified the body as that of Bors Ekland, Knight of the Crown. Wagner was unwilling to comment on the murder and what the significance of the word on the knight's breastplate might be.

Other knights in the city refused to comment as well, save one who asked not to be identified. "I cannot say much, but I can tell you that Androctus was a knight at the time of Vinas Solamnus. He penned a volume of the measure containing heretical teachings and was driven out of the orders. If those teachings were to be disseminated it could have dire consequences for the Knighthood."
