"Who is on guard here?"
"Who wants to know?!"
"I am The Herald."
"Are you undead?"
"I do not belong to Quarin."
"What is your message, Herald?"
"Tell me your name, and I shall tell you my message."
"Ricksy. Patrick Ricksy."
The Herald whispers a few words into his clenched hands. A piece of paper appears on the wall before Patrick Ricksy. The text upon it reads:
An end to the plague of undeath?
Looking up, the gate guard can no longer see the white-masked shadow. The message is passed on through the city.
