Commentary of the GM: Ok, what are you supposed to do with this? Basically, it's an example of how what are supposed to be Bad Guys (or at least fairly untrustworthy people) can be presented in a nice fashion. The above text was printed out in a nice font, put into sealed envelopes, and given to the players in-character. Everything in the letter is true - there are no lies or misleading statements in the text. It appeals to both a person's better nature (improving the city) and self-interest (more money). The whole secrecy aspect is presented as a good thing - but once the PCs are in, they can't get out easily...

When offering choices of honour to players, never present them as cut-and-dried, good/bad choices. Ambiguity is always more interesting.
