Ninishtar, a Drow, "cousin" of the Draukoenig, encountered a guild party
last summer and was impressed by their ...um... Effectiveness.  You may
recall her human name of  DiÓnÚ, Duchess of Armide.  She says:

"For divers domestic reasons, we're seeking an unlocatable device of power
once held by the Drow nation that preceded Raniterre.  Through an extremely
cryptic archaic scroll, we know where it was hidden.  Your reward will be
one item each, which you many chose beforehand -- from the contents of  my
Cousin's treasury, supplemented by a few choice items of mine or my husband.
And of course the customary two-thirds of any incidental loot you
legitimately collect along the way.

Pacted persons are acceptable, provided they behave like sincere vassals ...
employees.  Five or six would seem a suitable number.   If necessary, we can
loan you an extra, slightly used mage.

Just one hypothetical, potential problem...atic situation: the archaic
scroll transformed at some stage, probably just in the last few days, or
week or two, and is now written in clear common.   Now there was possibly
another scroll, or maybe a select few other scrolls, that held this archaic
secret.  Indeed, they say that last week the young Duke of Never secretly
dispatched a unit of priests and librarians to parts unknown.  So there's a
delightful windfall for you -- justifiable plunder." 

-------------
Level: High (purely on technical grounds), moderately discrete.
GM Warning: Elemental magic will NOT operate for most of the adventure.
Night: Tuesday or (Wednesday/Thursday, depending on Stephen's game)
Place: -- yet to be volunteered.

BTW, why does my spell-checker want to call your employer "Sinister, a
drown, cousin of the Darkening ... " ?

Ninishtar, a Drow, "cousin" of the Draukoenig, encountered a guild party
last summer and was impressed by their ...um... Effectiveness.  You may
recall her human name of  DiÓnÚ, Duchess of Armide.  She says:

"For divers domestic reasons, we're seeking an unlocatable device of power
once held by the Drow nation that preceded Raniterre.  Through an extremely
cryptic archaic scroll, we know where it was hidden.  Your reward will be
one item each, which you many chose beforehand -- from the contents of  my
Cousin's treasury, supplemented by a few choice items of mine or my husband.
And of course the customary two-thirds of any incidental loot you
legitimately collect along the way.

Pacted persons are acceptable, provided they behave like sincere vassals ...
employees.  Five or six would seem a suitable number.   If necessary, we can
loan you an extra, slightly used mage.

Just one hypothetical, potential problem...atic situation: the archaic
scroll transformed at some stage, probably just in the last few days, or
week or two, and is now written in clear common.   Now there was possibly
another scroll, or maybe a select few other scrolls, that held this archaic
secret.  Indeed, they say that last week the young Duke of Never secretly

Level: High (purely on technical grounds), moderately discrete.
GM Warning: Elemental magic will NOT operate for most of the adventure.
Night: Tuesday or (Wednesday/Thursday, depending on Stephen's game)
Place: -- yet to be volunteered.

BTW, why does my spell-checker want to call your employer "Sinister, a
drown, cousin of the Darkening ... " ?
