Tourney of the Hand
Merchant of little renown
Carswell Muxlow is a Highgarden merchant of little renown. One of his suppliers was a certain Lord Grammond, who arranged for Muxlow to receive a consignment of grain. The Baron switched the consignment after it was inspected and sold grain infected with ergot, a fungus known to produce hallucinations.
Attempts to reclaim the money through royal processes have stalled thanks to Grammond’s relationship with the king, and Muxlow is running out of coin pursuing the case. If he can’t convince Grammond to pay his debt, he intends to gain recompense through fair means or foul.
