The Circle of Fangs Revisited
The original team of five Wizards of War formed to investigate the circles of fangs met with prompt disaster, with three of the five being murdered and warnings left to dissuade all others. Rather than stopping their investigations, this caused the two surviving mages to depart the realm, go into hiding, and pursue their assigned mission secretly.

All indications point to a patient pursual of something deadly. In time of thronestrife, when a royal family or heirs are hidden away, one member could be followed to the others. In a bustling, crowded city, a team of spies or slayers could unerringly follow or converge upon one person. To me, these rings seem meant to topple thrones. Could those behind them be bent on covert empire?
