"These three blunderers better don’t tell the Jarls one of my secret hiding places. There are good reasons why I want to keep my work secret. How much I miss Raudor. He knew exactly what I attach importance to. Unlike my current novices, he had enormous potential” thought Dralnar on the way back to the cave.
Dralnar Draubein is one of the most powerful hermeticists of the Nordur and specializes in illusion and alteration hermetic. He uses seclusion to train his mind and expand his hermetic knowledge. There are rumors about Dralnar and his secret hiding places. It was put about that one of these places is a cave between Portheim and Wintersleep. So far, these are only rumors from travelers who claim to have seen him on their adventures.
Standing in front of the cave, one of the novices was waiting for Dralnar's signal. It was night and the fog prevented the clear night sky from making the place at least a little brighter. The novice stood there timidly before the signal came. A white-blue light began to shimmer on the ground. It marked the novice's way into the cave. The novice followed the light until the deep voice of Dralnar sounded from the dark
"You can stop there. What do you have to report?” The novice replied, “Ma-Master Dralnar, I am to deliver a message from Jarl Magnus Nightman. He said it was an urgent matter. Dralnar laughed a little mockingly and added: "Everything is urgent with this child. Put the letter on the stone next to you.”
The novice carefully placed the letter on the stone and was about to turn around and leave the cave before Dralnar spoke again: "Wait! Did you take the detour discussed on the way here? ” After this question, there was silence in the cave.
