Though he was not well-known at the time, the shadowy figure of Ss'zarll the Goblin poisoner played a key part in the Black Warlord's overthrow of Crown City. His greatest role came a month into the siege of the city. In the deep of night this deadly assassin tainted all of the granaries with a vile toxin, and set deadly nerve-agents into the springs that fed the city's water supply. Within a week the garrisons were wracked with poison, the people twisted and dying from the defiled goods. Thus was Grash able to take the city after only a short siege, setting himself up to conquer the rest of the free world from his newly-seized seat of power. Thus began the darkest time in the histories of Men. Done in pencil and insomnia.
