Re: Pathfinder Thursday Group-IC continuation Just as the group of Pathfinders were about to find a ship to take them back to Absalom, they were greeted by another tiefling, named Elon who had come bearing letters and an order from the Grand-master himself to head to Oppara, in Taldor and meet up with the local Venture-Captain there. Once there, they find themselves in the Pathfinder Society lodge—a modest building disguised as a bait and tackle shop. The Venture-Captain, an aging human man named Muesello greets you, “Greetings, and welcome to Oppara. Thank you for coming on such short notice." Before jumping into business almost immediately, "We have recently received reports that an item of extreme antiquity has been found. The late Lord Tulwin of Oppara is—was—the patriarch of a clamoring host of children, and none of them were believed to care much for the miser. Toward the end of his life, he supposedly poured all of what was to be their inheritance into the acquisition of an item of extreme value—an Azlanti scepter recovered by a Taldan Army of Exploration centuries ago. Such was his disdain for his offspring that he arranged for his body and most valuable belongings—the scepter among them—to be spirited away within an hour of his passing so the ‘vultures’ couldn’t squabble over his treasures. The scepter was believed lost to time, until now." “Our reports suggest that the scepter and the late Lord Tulwin lie entombed somewhere on Antios’s Crown. I need you to find the scepter and return it to me here in Oppara. If it truly is as powerful as the rumors suggest, then it must be brought to the Grand Lodge for safekeeping. You are among the few to whom we have given this information, and we expect it to remain secret. The last thing I need is a bunch of squabbling lordlings crowding Antios’s Crown with hired tomb raiders!" Right, so loot it before the real tomb raiders come. “You will know the tomb by the crest of House Tulwin. Look for a winged boar and the scepter should be nearby. When you are ready, we will transport you to the base of Mount Antios via magical means. Admittedly, it would be more expedient to send you directly to the summit, but sadly, no one here has a great enough familiarity with the area to do so without significant risk. Besides, with all the wards, shields, and other magical protections placed upon, in, and around the tombs of so many self-important, paranoid Taldans, who knows what sort of interference would be wrought!” With his monologue complete, there will be questions that you could ask that might lead to an easier time of finding the sceptre.
