As you each go about your daily lives in the bustling city of Roxregal, a mysterious card finds its way into your possession. Whether slipped under your door, handed to you by a street urchin, or mysteriously appearing among your belongings, the card's fine quality and cryptic message catch your attention immediately. The message is clear: meet at 10B Emissary Way, South Brishan, at 9PM tonight. 

When you flip it over, the message becomes clear:

"Your name was given to me as a person of talent and discretion. I am in dire need of your help with an important task. 100gp to hear the specifics. Another 100gp if you take the job. This card will self-destruct in 30 seconds."

Yours, Clivan

As you read the final line, you can almost feel the seconds ticking away...

The card begins to warm in your hand, the edges curling as the ink fades and the card disintegrates into a fine, harmless ash. A generous offer awaits, but what could be the nature of this urgent task?

The party met Clivan Canto, a former investigator for the Church of the New Gods, now disillusioned with the holy church establishment but still devoted to investigating strange occurrences and offering mercenary services to the people of Roxregal. A man, Sir Reginald Doxbetter, has hired Clivan to retrieve the body of his brother from a tomb in the woods near Roxregal. Missing for several years, Sir Dawson was a paladin searching for the tomb of a heretic knight who died 4 centuries ago. But, he never returned. The party accepted the 200gp and the promise of more loot. 

Seeking out the desolate tomb, the party handily dealt with the goblin guards, but not without struggle. Stayer was knocked unconscious and barely survived the encounter. Now that the guards are gone, the mystery of Sir Dawson's missing body remains.
