Captain Otis has recently been working as a smith in the village of Nulb. He was actually working undercover for the viscount, watching the activity of the nearby temple. but that cover is now blown because he has been recalled by the viscount to active duty to rescue the viscount’s daughter who was kidnapped by men led by a black clad figure with a bone mask. all indication point to the temple as the culprit and Otis knows that a party matching the kidnappers description entered the temple two days before.

Otis’s brother Elmo, also an experienced sell sword and agent for the viscount, brought Otis his orders and a hastily assembled party comprised of the readily available ‘adventurers’ on hand in Hommlet. They are not much, but all Otis has until an expedition from the Viscount arrives in 3 more days. but that could be too late.
