"Yes, meaning more than one"the paladin said and looked still forwards, at the wall behind the bartender. He knew well how the general would be guarded, and two assassins was the minimum of what would be needed.
Reaper looked at the paladin, then at Tani. He placed his finger under his eye and tapped twice to note her of her eye colour change. He then turned back to the paladin, drawing his hand from his face and to grab the tankard of ale infront of him. "I might now someone very interested. How much?"

"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
