The Heroes of Tolmurr
The Best Con
The best con is usually a simple one; distract with one hand, take with another. You see what you expect to see: petty criminals turning to violence and greed. Why should these criminals be any different?
But was there ever really a fireball? That mage was certainly shot, but will anyone find a couple of blunted arrows and bolts in a mound of glittering silver?
But of course it was real. You can’t lose that much hard cash to five copper worth of projectiles and a simple illusion, can you? No, that would be too simple.
