Conspiracy Notes

Black Fang

  • Varoteg can see things he wasn’t around for, as evidenced by his ability to set up an ambush for the fence and putting the gang’s pictures on those wanted signs and testimony from one of the ambushers
  • Varoteg is head of(?) the Black Fang, a spirit cult assassiny thing. Testimony from Nef, getting attacked by spirit wielding assassins wearing black fanged masks
    >>>The nobles who tried to kidnap Honey had spider tattoos that, when she described them to the judges, the Lhankor Mhy judge identified as Black Fang marks
  • Varoteg supposedly has many ties, even the ability to infiltrate the government himself. Testimony from Nef. I suspect the Lunar Judge of being black fang if not Varoteg
  • There’s a guy called the Illustrious Yara who comes into Gimpy’s after the curfew to give a lot of illegal work, was fucking Ralell]
  • Offering 5k W each for Naryu, Tiska, and Journey. 500 for Goldie and Nilrae.
  • Journey’s trapped Black Fang inside her own body and I’m pretty sure this is the worst plan ever.

Honey’s Mom

  • Has weird tattoos
  • Has weird friends whose houses she’d have meetings in and it was about the only time Honey would be left alone
  • Had Honey on the road, left two other daughters in the city she ran from
  • Honey says her dad was a gambler
  • She probably tampered with Honey’s memories
  • She dropped Honey off in Pavis from another place and likely another time.

Black Fang

Black Fang is a 300 year old spirit and leader of the eponymous assassin cult. He’s currently locked inside Journey’s body.
