A name never heard in Tuirdroth is Levid, although the city churns in peace due to his quick decisions under pressure in service to the King. His master Agent Skali of the Shrouded Hand and King Lencon Silverhand IV know of his identity, and the call upon his services with only the utmost agenda.
Graylon serves the Druidic Knights of the Azrean Stone in service to Tuirdroth, sworn protectors of Severness and the intrest of the King. Graylon is a political advisor, serving the kings cabinet in matters of the Knights agenda. Recently, he has been responsible for routing out Fauve cultist with Levid and Hector Thorne.
So Levid hatches a plot to discover loyalties to the realm, expose infiltrators and keep a close eye upon the less scrupulous: his alias Stavos (his disguised identity) will open a brothel. But how, in a traditional pentonite city with many superstitious citizens and careful elitist nobles? Certainly the King wouldn't let an establishment such as this exist?
Levid brings the statesman along to see the King. Levid travels the city in a full leather nose and mouth guard, wrapping his face away from view. In the Kings chamber Levid uses his silver tongue and Graylon uses his knowledge of governing and law to talk the King into the plan (with some killer rolls!).
The establishment known as the Silk Purse will be secretive, not openly operated, located below an inn reopened as The Sows Ear. The tavern and various billiard and gaming rooms on the ground floor will be called the Lions Den, with a giant humanistic lions head (from an Urdroth, Oraloth giant-kind) and two giant kukris mounted on the restaurant wall. The King will claim no knowledge of the Silk Purse located in the basement, but all knowledge gleaned from these affairs shall be reported to the Shrouded Hand and with need, to the King.
So, one meeting with royalty gone right and anything can be done! Levid, grandmaster of persuasion, didn't even have to give him The Look! When the King says yes, it becomes done!

"So, you say you can call the rain?" Aylish, before the great revelation, and the confirmation of our suspicions about the God Kings.
