Perhaps a Quest Giver in a Local Town can help you have mercy by dropping hints of a “Legendary Cure-All.” Maybe lead them to the nearest Villain or Evil Wizard who plans on spreading a Fantasy Disease. They can even enlist some Local Heroes or Guildmates to help with that pesky Cursed Item..
Irma “The Tickler” Berr.
Wanted For stealing a heart.
The local baron has accused Irma of killing his daughter & taking her heart for spell components.
But maybe you’ll find the the two canoodling in a cave, eloping to escape the baron’s overbearance.
Winston Payne, Navigator.
Wanted for unbearable smugness.
Just because you know how to get from west to east real good don’t mean you can just be rude.
Alright, so it might not be a crime punishable by death, but it definitely needs a lesson taught. To be fair, I would check the legitimacy of this posting.. Or at least research the local laws before you bring your paladin through.
