From the introduction:
A huge desk sits by the only window. Its carved legs depicts intertwined small skeletons that appears to try to scale each other, trying to reach the table top. On the desk is a number of glass beakers and flasks with bubbling fluids, a feathered quill and ink bottle, and in the middle of it is a large spellbook, opened to a page filled with strange glyphs that almost appear to be moving in a hypnotic pattern if you try to look directly at them.
This convention scenario is intended to be played with 9th-level pre-generated characters, included as print-and-play components.
