Acolyte of the Mages of Saruun
Paldemar is usually seen conducting the mages business in the hall and monitoring transactions in the customs house. He wears yellow robes bearing the symbol of the Mages of Saruun.
You received a mysterious letter delivered by Charak that read “Your actions against the duergar are commendable. I am in a position of power in the evil organisation behind the duergar’s actions, and I wish to help you defeat my comrades. I have been seeking a way out of the organisation, and I believe you can help me. Follow the attached map so that we can meet in secret.”
After fighting the Tieflings two more letters and a map were found. “I don’t care how you do it, but deal with these adventurers. Take one of the bronze warders if you must. If they remain in the Labyrinth, they could disrupt my plans. Once you’ve dealt with them, deliver their bodies to our gnoll friends, along with the enclosed scroll.
“To Maldrick Scarmaker, Exalted Chieftain of the Blackfangs and Chosen of Yeenogu:
Paldemar offers you the corpses of these champions as a gift of ongoing friendship, that our arrangement might continue to be mutually beneficial. May you savour their blood.
Your friend and ally, Paldemar”
The map gave directions to the [[:Well of Demons]], which is circled and marked with the word “Blackfangs.” Returning once again to the Hall, the team found out that Paldemar is a member of the Mages of Saruun. He has been missing and out of contact with the Mages for many weeks
Through the wisdom of sages provided by the Wand of Wonder, you know he sent the Tieflings after you in the Road of Shadows to destroy you. You also know he works for Vecna, god of secrets.
