This piece of paper is marked with an official seal of the Empire which was broken long ago. The writing within details the accusation and trial of a Tilean man named Alessandro Venezia, who was charged with practicing witchcraft and burned at the stake.
Of the named witnesses listed upon the Proclamations, one stands out: that of Wilhelm Svartzen. Of all of Venezia's neighbors, only Wilhelm spoke no ill of the man. Bearing such witness for a convicted witch might very well bring the Witch Hunters down on Svartzen's head someday.
Should the story intrigue you, then more answers might be found with Wilhelm Svartzen.
- Locate Wilhelm Svartzen and ask him about Alessandro Venezia and his Proclamation of Guilt.
- Speak with Wilhelm Svartzen
Completion Text Edit
"Alessandro? Yeah, I knew him. Called him 'Salty,' 'cause his name was a mouthful. He lived on yonder plot until some of the locals got hungry for his land. They worked up a story about witchcraft, claimed he was cursing their crops and sacrificing their cattle."
"He was strange, yeah, but what do you expect? He came from Tilea, and hardly spoke a word of Reikspiel. Couldn't talk well in his own defense, so I tried to do it for him. Fat lot of good it did. His neighbors has his land split up before his ashes were cold."
"Am I worried about the Witch Hunter who judged him? Hardly! I've done my part for the Empire, sure enough, and I dare those cretins to bring an accusation against me."
