It didn’t take long before the guild was called up for another meeting. This time, Effex needed to see the others. Hantitia, Shakku, Valur, Goasse and Bloxie made their way to the outskirts of Stormwind City. Naturally, they didn’t find Effex, but he found the others. For some reason, Effex lead the others to somewhere a bit more quiet and was on the lookout the entire time. His reasons were soon revealed.
Effex took different kind of jobs and one of them was working as a guard to the Cenarion Circle. Recently, he had been escorting the Circle while they were attacked by a group of humans. He and the other guards managed to fight them off, but not without casualties. Later, Effex found out that one of the casualties had been the son of a nobleman. As unfair as it may seem, the nobleman found out the people responsible for the death of his son and saught revenge. He made the officials think that Effex was plotting against the king of Stormwind and wanting to assassinate him. It was true that Effex had been asked to do such a deed on several occasions (by assorted lunatics), but he hadn’t accepted. And so Effex had to go in to exile.
Effex showed his friends the hiding place he had in the mountains. He was planning to stay there until there was no bounty on his head anymore. Titi would have wanted to contact his older sister, the ambassador, and get Effex’ reputation cleared, but the others seemed to think that with all the current turmoil, this incident would soon be forgotten. Even so, Effex trusted his favourite swords in the care of a skilled warrior, Goasse, for the time being. The guild members offered to help Effex in any way they could and wished him safety.
