Description: Sources have led you to believe that Lord Gellard, a noble renowned
for his vicious competitiveness, has gathered an exquisite collection of valuable
artifacts and rare gems in the enormous mansion on his sprawling estate in Hightowne.
You're in need of a big job right now to meet certain expenses, so the Gellard
Estate should fit the bill.
You've heard that Lord Gellard somehow manages to control portions of the city
leadership and aristocracy... getting proof of how he's doing this would give you
something you could use against him, or sell to one of his enemies. Supposedly,
Gellard even has a secret passage from his estate that comes out somewhere in
or near City Hall... finding it could prove very useful.
He is also reputed to have the best guards and security devices around... since he
has close ties to the Mechanists, he has a number of their security devices on the
grounds. Cleaning out the estate won't be easy, but then paying the rent never is...
