Mask Campaign Chapter 2: Meeting of the Fates
The party with Omar
will reach Landover without any further incident. Omar will suggest
cleaning up a bit before meeting with Charilus.
He will volunteer to see if any healing can be done for the PC's,
mentioning that Charilus will take care of the cost.
When the party arrives at the inn Charilus will
already be seated and looking annoyed. He looks impatient and as
soon as they arrive he asks after the mask. Omar will attempt to
intercede and explain how the mask was stolen. Charilus will nearly
explode with anger blaming the party's incompetence and even going
so far as to question their honesty. Just when things are about
to blow up a soft hand touches Charilus shoulder and a feminine
voice gently rebukes him to "allow these
folk to retain their good temperament."
Charilus introduces his granddaughter Elan
a priestess of (insert local deity of luck and good fortune here).
Elan takes a seat and introduces herself to the
party. She is dressed in a long yellow dress with the symbol of
her god embroidered into small marks on the hem of her dress. She
has long back-length blond hair and green eyes.
Elan has a calming effect on Charilus, she apologizes
for him and tries to explain his and her position. Charilus and
Elan, with Omar interjecting, explain about the masks.
After explaining, Elan will ask the PC's if they
would consider helping them look for the masks. She tells of her
fears for the ways they will be used, and that they know of others
seeking the masks. She includes Baron
Ganth, an evil man who would use the masks to further his own
power. Charilus will mention that other,darker powers may also be
seeking the masks.
If the party agrees, Elan states she will accompany
them, over Charilus protests. Charilus informs them that he has
narrowed the search area on one masks down to the eastern mountains,
unfortunately that's as close as he can get. He then suggests that
the PCs head to the village of King's
Reach. There they may mount an expedition and ask the locals
for information. Charilus will fund the expedition but only give
the money to his granddaughter and not to the PCs.
