CoS spoiler blackout below. Highlight to read. Thanks

Does anyone know the identity of the Master in Grey? Is he just a higher level legate or Ardherin in disguise? or is he not fleshed out elsewhere?

I've got this idea for running CoS. Rather than have the party pursued by one legate, I plan on having them pursued by two legates, each from the 2 different major factions in the Order of Shadow. Or, I may make one faction actually be agents of Ardherin.

This would set up a battle between the PCs and one of these opponents before the final confrontation and give them a sense of the divisions that exist within the Shadow's ranks.

He's not fleshed out anywhere. Though there was some discussion about him on the old site... you might have luck going there and searching for that name.

Your set up is good. Perhaps you could also [black spoiler text]set up situations where the hunters fight each other, or give the PCs a chance to turn them against each other?

There isn't any other information on him, most bets go toward a greater legate or ardherin himself, i am in favor of the last, though it does not really come into play, having different factions, specially with Dirigible's idea could play a good part on the campaign, though I would probably have the other side enter the scene hunting the elven emisssary, cahse them out of Baden's Bluff and then get to see what is truly happening, the final showdown could happen earlier, with the two playing opposite sides and against the PCs as well.

Some thoughts.

Thanks for the responses (spolier blackout below)

My plan is to have Jael infintrate the party and then "discover" they are being pursued. Jael will then suggest that the party ambush the other rival  legate and his party. This will give Jael some cred with the PCs, leading to the ultimate showdown in the end.

Spoilers in black ..>That is a very good idea, specialy if the legate makes a weird face before dying, whispering in his breath: "So.. it was... you.. Jael..."

Would ring very familiar.
<-- End of spoilers

Aren't we a lot overzealous? We are inside the DM's Corner, debating a thread entitled CoS Spoilers and still using black to cover words... anyone already reading this would probably not mind reading it in black or not. Wink

Hum is it normal that i see half the answer with a grey background thus making the hidden black colored text not so hidden after all ?

But thanks for reminding of the grey master I know I needed a uber behind the scene villain for my campain. Now I realize I already got one.

I was planning on introducing the brother of Jael as the new legate enemy, but I'll keep the same mastermind Smiley

I too would be interested in reading any musings people had on Jael's mysterious master. Personally it never occured to me that it could be a night king. I guess due to the level of the adventure I assumed it was a Legate of intermediate standing within the Order.

Welcome aboard Lobo. Wink

And just because this thread was already bumped, the great options for adding things to Cos are here: chapter two, chapter three, chapter four, chapter five thread 1, thread 2 and thread 3, final chapter. And a few specifics: Escaping Baden's BluffFrom the elven side, Beedo's CoS, Redwinde's Black Mirror, Who is the Master in grey?

There is more in the old site, sure thing, but those are a few of the outstanding threads on CoS. Wink

The links here are all bad.  Does anyone have revised links where I could see these?

The old site died and we are still seeing if we cqn work some necromantic magic in it, but being 200mb MySQl queries means we will probably not be able to keep it up again. Anyway, this thread has what people had saved to their HD from those threads, a terrible miss to not have the originals, but somewhat good to have something of them around.
