A few days ago, a contact of mine informed me that a spy had some information for me. Apparently this spy has been slowly relieving the Hammerites of their possessions. His name is Alexei, a rather scruffy looking fellow. When we met, I could tell by the way he looked at me that he was up to no good.... but the fact of the matter was that he had an assignment for me, and the rent needs to be paid.
He wanted to sell me a key that would open the Tomb of Goladus. It's located in a Hammerite Shrine that was sealed off not too long ago, due to some catastrophe that left hundreds of Hammerites dead in its wake. Apparently there is a magic sword that is sealed down there, as well as numerous other treasures and trinkets. Even if the seal should break, few would dare to venture into the depths of that cursed tomb.
I have a bad feeling about this, but I accepted his proposition anyway and bought the Earth Ward. Now all I have to do is open the seal on Goladus' Tomb, and help myself to its treasures. The payoff should be worth the risks; if the rumors I've heard are true, then the amount of treasure buried down in the tomb is enormous. Time to get my equipment ready; I have a feeling this won't be easy.
