You all live in the Town of River Oak. A town of good virtues, Adventures, and the leader Gunthry, an old wizard respected by everyone in River Oak and beyond.
One morning while you are eating breakfast at the Bovine Inn an Elven messenger approaches your table, He looks about five feet tall and wearing mostly dark green accept for his boots, belt, and white shirt. The elf nods and says,
“Gunthry needs your help. With his private guard escorting the duke in his brothers’ funeral he is in dyer need of assistance. Kulgan the wizard, who lives in the tower on the rolling hills, has been cursed. He is trapped in the keep of the tower and his chances of escaping by him self are slim.
“Gunthry ordered me to guide you, if you accept. He also told me that you may keep any treasures found during the assignment.
“Do you accept the mission?”
