The following note is found on Butcher's body:

Bloody Papers
This stack of papers is so blood-soaked, the pages stick together. Only a few lines are still legible:

After knowing who he truly serves, it was an easy thing to discover his compatriots. I lifted a list of their spies from one before I left. We have little time before the theft is discovered, so I advise we move posthaste.

I was followed, but do not fear. I lost my pursuers in Lydes. Only our closest friends know my final destination.
