During his service, Finneas uncovers and foiles an attempt on Vedim’s life, impressing and catching the attention of the royals.
998 YK – Regent Moranna ir’Wynarn summons him and informs him of his new assignment: he is bound by his duty to take upon himself the title of Protector of the Treaty of Thronehold as Karrnath’s envoy. He reaffirms his allegiance to his nation, and begins his next adventure…
