Kova, a mage/thief with an unsavoury background and good heart (or so he claims), and a law-enforcing, impartial (or so she claims) archer called Kiyone, comes together to join the party in this intriguing Mod about proving one man's innocence against the odds, and about the unlikely yet strong bond formed between the two people, so different yet so much alike.
The Quest is slated to run from chapter 2 to 6, and involves 7 separate parts, each with its own rewards, but interlinked nonetheless into a case that only goes to show more about the power play between the Shadow Thieves and the Cowled Wizards, the pliable nature of the law-enforcers in Athkatla and further insights into why certain things happened to certain NPCs, such as -
How did Renal come to be informed of Mae'Var's designs?
Why did Edwin want Rayic dead, and why was he in Mae'var's Guild?
Why was Rayic protecting himself so extremely?
Was Jermien building a golem simply to protect his daughter?
BTL also examines many of our concepts of good & evil, right & wrong, justice & forgiveness, courage & despair, means & ends, and most importantly, perhaps, what it means to really live, and to find a purpose in that, amidst this journey of self-discovery between these two NPCs.
