Curse of the Crimson Throne
At the behest of his lover Vaminda, Verik abandoned his post with the guard to help feed the poor in north shore during the riots. A few enterprising guardsmen joined him and ran the
butcher business for him while he spent most of his time waiting for word from his lover. The Cowhammer boys, as the other guards were called, turned out to be worse than common thugs. They murdered people for coin, then cut up the bodies an sold the meat to the poor along with all the animal meat. All but one of The Cow Hammer boys were dispatched and Verik escaped with Illendrian’s assistance.
