Since I'm going back to give feedback on all the Strolen's stuff that I've yoinked over the years for my own purposes, I wanted to make special mention of this sub. It's a wonderful addition with a great twist and plenty to get PC interested in helping. My players took to it with aplomb. Wondering where the next attack was coming from.
Best of all, I managed to get them believing that the attacks were because of their actions rather than the poor young man.
I very much enjoyed this, thank you manfred
This is a good and interesting plot, but the premise doesn't sit well with me. Mostly because it turns the wife into a sort of psychopath. After all, if both of them are dead who would look after her child? If she cared at all for either of them the plot seems to fall apart. It would make more sense to me if the assassinations were keyed off of some sort of action on his part, like getting remarried. This would also turn the new wife into the prime suspect, as he would have inhereted a good deal of money from his previous wife. No one expects a dead killer.
