Mission Briefing

For twenty-three years, the prison in Lockenport's Old Town has been shuttered and abandoned. After the winter uprisings in 187, and the unfortunate murder of the popular leader of the Fisherman's Guild, the prison was sealed by public decree.

Now, special permission has been obtained from Lockenport's Congress for a group of Irregulars to enter the prison. Their goal lies not within the prison itself, but below. For the prison was built on the side of a wide, seemingly bottomless hole into the depths beneath the city. It is known as the Pit, and in decades passed, “He shall be committed to the Pit” was a common sentence for serious criminals, who would be duly hoisted into the dark depths, never to be seen or heard from again.

Yozian Tammelnor is Head of Antiques and Relics for the Irregulars. He has been examining the guild's archives, and believes that a magical item known as the Crown of the Brilliant Sun may be in the possession of a troglodyte tribe living near the Fungus Fields deep in the Pit. This crown would be useful in the battle against Vedroth's legions, and finding it is the goal of this mission.

There are numerous mission reports in the Irregulars archives concerning visits to the Pit, so the first mission to return to this legendary part of Lockenport in more than two decades carries a certain level of distinction. However, it also carries a warning. The depths of the Pit are dangerous, and the “fatalities” entry for many of the old mission reports is comprehensive.

The purse for this mission is 1000 gp per Irregular participating. In addition, each participant may have first rights on any one treasure recovered during the mission, with the exception of the Crown of the Brilliant Sun itself.

Fatalities: This mission has a “significant chance of death” warning attached to it. Sections 73, 78 and 81 of the standard mission contract are therefore waived by the Guild.
