The Blackscale Blades are a mercenary company based out of Absalom who, until recently, worked closely with the former Chelish aristocrat Lord Emilano Doreset. The Blackscale Blades had been helping Lord Doreset to guard his tower-vault Hawkthorne's Shield, as well as to retrieve a sizable hoard taken from a defeated dragon in a set of ruins near Absalom. While trying to help Lord Doreset apprehend the con artist Tarrant Liespinner, it was revealed that he had embezzled large sums of gold whilst acting as their patron.
