"In the Event of My Untimely Demise", a short story by Robin D. Laws, was released as Pathfinder Tales web fiction in August and September 2012 and as a compiled ebook in October 2013. It is a tie-in to Laws's Pathfinder Tales novel Blood of the City.

House Derexhi's reputation for honesty and efficacy as mercenaries attracts a wide range of clientele both prestigious and bizarre. Luma, spurned as the black sheep of the family for her street magic, has been assigned to fulfill a dead explorer's contract. What seemed to be a simple request soon draws her into a decades-old conflict with her late client's former companions: a temperamental dwarf, a sly priest, and a cruel sorcerer. Will Luma be able to carry out the job? Or will she cement her place as family's outcast by becoming the first Derexhi to break a contract?
