What mysteries lie within the Spider Wood and the old forest roads leading down from Sonise to Ostelones? Som the Wine Merchant of Trepura and a Caravan Master in his service, one Igon hailing from Harbaal are determined to find out. A copy of an ancient map in their posession in company with an ancient treasure that promises more suggest the possibility of ruins worth far more than the old piles lying around Trepura.
Igon hires a small group of adventurous types, giving them a false tale about mapping out a caravan route for the logging and mining trade south of Sonise. (not entirely false--Som plans to profit from the mapmaking anyway) When Igon has determined the mettle of the group he reveals to them the real reason for the mission.
This is my online game so far, the party only has three pcs:
1. Sir Konrad, a knight hailing from Bervoon Manor to the south.
2. Jack, a yeoman longbowman
3. Jerrick, a former Halean servant, now trying to prove his mettle to the Lia-Kavair as a smuggler, in the guise of Igon's clerk.
