I made this trip out to Deathknell just to deliver this letter to you. There’s really nothing else for me here. I remember Deathknell before the Cataclysm. Before the Val’kyr. Before there were girls who’d take one look in a mirror and went running around shrieking in horror. Before Darnell. I remember it being a much quieter place. It’s got a bit more life in it these days, depending on one’s definition of “life”.
It’s still mostly a place to get yourself together and then just get going, though. They didn’t even bother to rebuild anything like they did down the road in Brill. Some things just don’t change. The church is still there. The woods are still full of wolves and spiders. You still stand in the corner and keep your secrets.
Of course you keep secrets. You don’t get to be a highly skilled rogue without knowing where the bodies are and how to keep your mouth shut about them. I wonder sometimes about the secrets you might be keeping. You see, I couldn’t help but notice your name. I know another man named Trias with a similar “professional background” as yourself.
That’s an awfully strange coincidence, don’t you think? I’ve noticed there are a great number of things on Azeroth that turn out not to be coincidence if you really dig around. Family names, for example. It didn’t matter how much digging I did, though, I couldn’t turn up enough information on you or Elling Trias to find out for sure.
Imagine that… not being able to find a decent amount of background information on a couple of rogues. Trust me, Trias, I’m nowhere near as dumb as I look.
I came up with a story that entertained me, but I’m still waiting to find out if it’s true or not. I haven’t given up.
Don’t think that leaving means I won’t keep an ear to the ground. Or that I won’t still have eyes watching what happens in the shadows. If Chris Metzen tweets the name Trias, I’ll know. If even a rumor of lore revelations related to the Stormwind cheese shop show up in a blue post, I’ll see it. If there are secrets that you and Elling Trias are keeping, Blizzard won’t keep them for you forever.
Sometimes staying in the shadows doesn’t keep you from attracting attention. Sometimes it makes you very interesting.
