Palanthas – It's been a full 6 months since Adam Aazim met his death, but what killed him is still a mystery. Also a mystery is who inherits his assets? Not long after his death, his son, Nicholas Aazim, was already spending his newly acquired funds. However, new information which has recently been uncovered questions whether the money was his to spend.

A journal, detailing the past of Adam Aazim, was given to Samuel of Thonvil, an Aesthetic from the Great Library of Palanthas. In the journal, it was hinted that Adam Aazim had an illicit affair with a commoner, who ended up bearing a son to him. As to who this lady was, or what the son's name is, the journal didn't say. But due to this turn of events, many women of Palanthas have come forth, claiming that their child is the child of Adam and the heirlooms are rightfully theirs.

Tiral Okal, Ambassador of Ergoth, when asked if this type of behavior is typical in Ergoth, stated, "Well...keeping a log of it certainly is."

A source from within the Senate informed the Herald that the Senate has brought in a wizard to decipher who is the true heir, "But with this many people claiming that title, it could take as long as a week to find out the truth," said the source.
