Wars of the Black Alliance
Sheikh Harun Qadib
Sheikh Harun Qadib is a nobleman and merchant lord in the city of al-Hammâm.
He purchased the players at a slave auction, after the dastardly pirate Captain Ghudraan had tricked them.
Qadib had planned to employ the players as gladiators in the arena, and use the ticket sales and bets to refinance his declining shipping emporium.
However, a passionate song, sung by Israfel Lutestring the bard, changed his mind, and he agreed to release the players and send them on to Black Harbour – IF they helped him uncover the mystery of the nightly disappearances that plagues the city.
