Palanthas – A clandestine cell of Dark Knights was uncovered yesterday by a kender.

Shayna Memorymapper of Hylo claims she heard the Dark Knights talking inside Solamnic Heroes. She told the Herald, "I had just walked into Solamnic Heroes for a Brightblade with tomato. Gustaff's sandwiches really are quite good. Anywhoo, I passed by a table at which were seated a blond haired woman and four men. They grew quiet as I passed by. They must have been awed by my overwhelming beauty. Though they weren't speaking, I distinctly heard the woman say something about The Lord of Night being pleased once the Creeping Shadow had control of the city gates; whatever that means."

"I sat down at a table and waited for Lissa to come take my order. I continued listening to them outline a plan for taking the city gates. When Lissa came to take my order I also had her pass a note to Gustaff. I assume he summoned the City Guard because within a few minutes, a squad of City Guardsmen arrived and clapped them in irons. It was kind of cool how they were able to talk without moving their lips. I wonder how they did it and why does my neck itch."

According to City Guard officials, the Dark Knights were later interrogated and it was discovered that they belonged to a cell called the Creeping Shadow. Exactly how many members of this cell remain within the cit is not known but Lord Constable Keene Di Qisath assures the people that the cell of Dark Knights will be rooted out. He told the Herald, "I don't know how the kender did it, but she saved the city from a possible invasion from within."
