Whether this is your first adventure or not, you are all still new to the society so getting letters from ranking officers is nothing new, but this time it's:
I have recently uncovered a series of notes that I believe hold critical truths about the origins of the Pathfinder Society and the founding of the Decemvirate. A gnome Pathfinder by the name of Eylysia was well-known at that time and was held in high esteem until an assassination attempt on members of the Decemvirate organized by Eylysia led to her ejection from the Society. These notes I have found indicate
there may be quite a bit more to Eylysia’s story than we previously realized.
The most legible of Eylysia’s notes reference a “speaking artifact” purportedly lying beneath a “false rider.” Descriptions drawn from recent visions suggest the “speaking artifact” originated in Varisia. I suspect it is related to the Shoanti, a people well-known both for their oral traditions and horsemanship.
It seems Eylysia suspected that the noted explorer, Montlarion Jeggare, had glimpsed this “speaking artifact”. Head to the Jeggare Museum in Korvosa, where Montlarion’s ancestor, Mercival Jeggare, serves as curator. Once there, see if you can locate this “speaking artifact”. I await your findings.
Our Adventure starts when the last of you arrive at the Lodge in Korvosa, which right now seems unattended by any venture captain but still employs a small staff to provide what they can as needed.
Go ahead and introduce yourselves and let me know if there is anything you would like to procure before heading out. If your character has questions about their mission they can attempt to gather information form the locals, or study from the lodges small but respectable library.
