The Lords of Winter
A finely made dagger with a dragonbone hilt.
The members of House Slayton found this dagger outside their door one morning. The dagger is a slightly curved, single-edged blade, balanced nicely for throwing or close-in work. It was wrapped in cloth with a folded piece of parchment that simply read “Slayton”.
Upon closer inspection, the dagger’s hilt was found to be hollow, and a small glass phial was discovered inside. Inside the phial is a lone drop of a clear liquid.
Gregor Snow hid the dagger on the tourney greens in a hole beneath the women’s tent. Maester Lassen took the phial to the Maester’s Conclave to have the mystery liquid analyzed by Denys, an acolyte working in the laboratory.
