Council Threat


<Player name>,

You may not know me, but I know you. I'm calling upon you because you're capable in the face of danger. If you consider yourself a force for good in this world, then I implore you to attend the Dragon Bash effigy ceremony in Lion's Arch. I've heard whispers about a threat to the Ship's Council and, if left unchecked, to the city itself. I'd intervene myself, but circumstances prevent it.

I'd wish you luck, but luck is what fools and idiots require to stay alive. You, I believe, are neither.

I will surely contact you again,

—E

My story[edit]

Memorials on the Pyre loading screen.jpg

Out of the blue, an elusive benefactor named "E" wrote and directed me to the effigy ceremony at Dragon Bash, claiming that the Captain's Council was under some sort of threat. It was a faceless lead, but the only one I had. I made my way to Lion's Arch to see for myself. The ceremony started without a hitch, but then the effigies were lit...

As the cultural representatives approached with their offerings, one of the dragon effigies erupted with arcane energies, emitting an electrical current that struck the captains on stage. Inspector Ellen Kiel immediately took control of the scene. With the help of her Lionguard, Kiel and I escorted the wounded to Fort Marriner. Along the way, we were harassed by a group of scrapyard pirates.

We delivered the captains to the medical ward, but their wounds were critical. Kiel implored me to return to the festivities, but I'm not in the mood for a celebration anymore. Between this and the Molten Alliance... Something is brewing, and I'm fast growing tired of these constant surprises.
