Assassination of the Human Ambassador to the Alliance, Aelric Salazath
The Tharanian King Marzevash "the Adamant" fears to lose his powers and supposedly plots an assassination of the highly respected Ambassador to the Alliance, Aelric Salazath. While Marzevash is a prominent figure in the Alliance between the races, the face of the kingdom to the elves and dwarves is Aelric, who helps to negotiate between the races. The alleged plot to kill Marzevash's internal foe succeeds, but several representatives from other races are killed as well unintentionally during the ambush near Salsair. This causes a part of the plot to be uncovered, linking the assassination to Marzevash. However, Marzevash's guilt or innocence can never be proven in its entirety.
Marzevash, in the eyes of many people directly linked to the assassinantion of ambassador Aelric, is eventually forced to abdicate in order to satisfy the growing unrest in the populace. He flees to the island of Narvoss, taking with him his son Syveric, and instates his son Raegash as the new King of Tharania.
