1: Rescue Mission
The Friendly Goblin in Ludinium is an inn frequented by adventurers, so when horse-trader Mazerit Sabal needed someone to rescue his son from the clutches of an Evil cult, he found three of them: Gilbert Fezziwig, Rosetta Stone and Villitch Van Velckha.
They rode forth immediately on steeds provided by their patron, heading for the Old Keep five miles west into the marshland surrounding the city. It is a known haven for bandits which the party had to overcome on their way to stop the cult from sacrificing the boy to a Black Dragon Wyrmling roosting in the flooded dungeon of the keep.
Amidst the treasure hoard of the young dragon was a scroll tube containing a treasure map. The much-annotated map spelled out how to best go about obtaining the Crown of Kings from the treasure hoard of Zovatora the Red Dragon, a quest that involves an excursion into Elfland.
The heroes returned to Ludinium with the rescued child and were rewarded by Sabal with gold and the promise of more work in the future.
