The Shadow of Death
The adventurers begin their journey looking for news of their old friend and mentor Douven Staul. He is the man who trained them in sword play, introduced them to magic, and helped them study for hours and hours over scrolls detailing divine affairs. He set out about three months prior to the start of their adventure, after he had procured a map to a dragon’s tomb not far from their home village of Winterhaven. He figured if a dragon is buried there, why not it’s hoard? His wife grew worried and sent our adventurers word that he had not returned. Naturally, they all respond by uprooting and making haste to Winterhaven.
