Broken Throne

Session 2: The Mystery!

A blog for your campaign

Osfrid, Trianna, Kislev, Roland, and Mercorsor are summoned to Tordek’s home, the ad hoc headquarters of the Emerald Watch. Tordek and Druthar are there, stern-faced, with a man standing behind them, looking equally grim. As you all enter, the man steps forward and introduces himself as Shawnarell, the Mayor’s aid. He has hired your company to assist in an investigation. The town has a volunteer constabulary, but not really any sort of investigations division.

The Mayor’s son, Ian Torvil has been abducted.
