The price of failure
I just had a nasty idea and want to share it / discuss it:
IMC, the party has already gained the attention of the outer fane. Ukemil was sent to esplore what happened to the (defeated) earth temple and the main gate and his pets were defeated while he was able to return and report.
In the next days, Hedrack will send one of his assassins to spy on the party and kill at least one member at an opportune moment.
If that assassin fails but returns, I consider the following:
Hedrack will give him to Thrommel...
The newly created vampire spawn assassin will get a second chance to finish his task.
This would serve three purposes:
1. Hedrack will have made clear to his subordinates what the price of failure is.
2. The assassin´s chances to damage the party will increase.
3. The players will be alerted that there is a vampire about somewhere.
What do you think?

Re: The price of failure
Hedrack could "insert" a little item into the new spawn's forehead. This would work like a permanent scrying device and have the power of "Maximized Flamestrike" usable only once on remote command.
