A couple of days after their renowned victory in the arena, the party is enjoying a meal in a local tavern. An imperious looking man enters and approaches them. He introduces himself as an agent of House Malatar, the house that owned the dragons the party defeated. The party eyes him warily, and asks what he wants with them. The agent assures them he is not looking for trouble. He knows the party used some kind of magical dragon-slaying blade in their battle. House Malatar would simply like to know who gave them the item.
The party sees no need to deceive the man, as they did not violate the rules of the arena by using the dagger. They admit to receiving the gift, but assure the agent of House Malatar that they received it from a cloaked figure who did not wish to reveal his identity. The agent finds this hard to believe.
