It was Gretchen who found the book, but Tomlin who decided on its use.
The mercenary band fought for plunder, and on this most recent trip, had come across a book of magical plagues.
Weeks earlier, the group listened as a drunken knight talked of the hidden fortune of his lord, Baron Paschall of Sylvane. Not even Paschall’s knights knew the location of the baron’s gold, but it was rumored to fill a 10x10 room up to a man’s waist.
The rumor meant little to the black-hearted mercenaries. Until they found the book.
