This letter of introduction was part of the bundle left to Dvalin by his father. With it came a set of official documents under an assumed name, Garbek Steelbeard.
For those who don’t like cursive, like my husband/DM :), here is the text:
Letter of Introduction for Garbek Steelbeard of Waterdeep
I, Thordin Lightforge, hereby present this letter for Sir Garbek Steelbeard, a merchant and noble from Neverwinter. As a lifelong family friend I know him to be of noble blood and temperament. I formally extend my intention to welcome this traveler into our lands and act as guarantor for his character and actions.
