    Rumors abound about what happened to the famed thief Ricardo that was scheduled for execution for starting the war with the Ophidians by stealing a crown from them years ago. Many theories abound as to what really happened to him. Some claim that his sentence was unjust and he was being used as a scapegoat for the ruling council’s failings during this time of turmoil in the Kingdom. So he was executed in private so that the entire war could be forgotten as quickly as possible. Others claim he is hidden away in a jail cell shared with Avery awaiting his end. The romantic image many people have latched onto is that he escaped his captures and is even now in disguise working his trade in Trinsic under the sheriff’s nose.
    This reporter hearing such a tale of him being spotted in Trinsic went undercover to investigate. Word was there was a new thief’s guildmaster named Ricardo and I had to find out if it was him.

    Ricardo in hiding?

    I was very disappointed to find a man, with a haircut like a page from the royal courts, who just had the same name as the famously charming rogue. So as of now the mystery of what happened to legendary thief Ricardo is still unsolved.

    One has to wonder though...is Ricardo also a master of disguise? Could it maybe be that he has merely changed his appearance?

    Wasn't he mentioned as having a drink in a tavern not too long ago in a BNN article? I look forward to his future exploits. His trial was a farce of Justice. It seems like just the sort of quirk of fate the universe plays that he may end up saving us all from the shadow lords.

    I stood outside the courthouse and protested when the verdict came down... Something was fishy about that trial.

    ...if the gauntlets don't fit, you must acquit!
