Madame Spear heads the assassin school. In her youth, Spear worked with a group of successful adventurers. Her time with the group lead her to great riches, including a powerful artifact called the Tablet of Eternity. After she retired from adventuring, she built the school, doing so for two reasons. First, with the help of her sister, Doctor Dagger, and her best friend, Assistant Headmistress Bolt, she wished to train the next generation of assassins. Second, she wished to house her impressive wealth and the tablet in a nigh impenetrable vault below the school.
Rumors that the tablet hides below the school travel across the land. Multiple factions desire the power it brings them. These rumors are what inevitably lead the characters to the school.
