The mercenary company was invited to the Frankfurt mansion of Maximilian Lundren. He informed the party that he wanted to hire them on to an expedition that he was mounting to the frozen north in search of the Goblet of Mi-Go. This was all a ploy and Maximilian really just wanted to drug them with laced food and wine. Once the party feel asleep they awoke in the dream/shadow plane.
The party successfully defeated a fishbowl, a demon chessboard, and a room full of mind-controlling brains in jars. After they woke up and returned to the normal realm, they found Maximilian dead in his study. It appeared as though Max hired a sorcerer to transport the party into his dream so that he could find out if Merrill took his monkey’s paw. The sorcerer escaped from the mansion before the party could confront him.
The party found various texts and tomes on old legends, manuals of the planes, and books on ancient artifacts. Theses books were taken back to the company’s base of operations. Any knowledge check for ancient lore, artifacts, or the planes that is made in the comapny’s HQ receives a +10 when consulting these resources.
The local authorities are greatly concerned about the death of the prominent politician Maximilian Lundren. They are launching an investigation and while the party are not suspects at this time, they are told not to leave the city of Frankfurt until further notice.
Great teamwork, everyone. XP chart is updated.
