You’ve made it this far, intrepid adventurer. Why not join the Treasure Hunt?
Grabbing up your pack, your trusty quarterstaff and some iron rations, you set out from your village in search of adventure. After wandering for some days, you enter a deep and mysterious woods. The forest grows dark and close about you. The trail you thought you followed dwindles a your feet.
But ahead, the way appears brighter. You enter a sun-dappled glade. A stream gurgles through, cheerful and lively. Your gaze settles on a scroll, forgotten on a mossy rock. You walk over and pluck it up. There’s no harm in taking a look, right?
