The fundamental idea is there (and as far as the bg goes, it's okay, but the way it's written makes things seem abrupt) but I can't give it a 3 because the amount of details given doesn't support such a score.
Aside from editorial issues, the story of Hensaz wasn't badly written although on the actual item, it's really just sth that will get whoever acquires it killed in prob. no time unless it's picked up by a hermit living in a place with nobody else. I will go with a vote of 2 as well since as it is, I think it could be some random story told by an odd old man who goes around villages telling stories or sth (like Belgara in the Belgariad by David Eddings) Go to Comment
This is less than a 2 because I don't think it makes sense to have an insane character that can be devoted to a care-taking responsibility at the same time unless said role was just about manually cutting down ppl but then that's really stretching the normal definition of care-taking.
