Cliffport, a thriving seaside town nestled among towering white cliffs which are riddled with caves, has been losing citizens lately. After months of fruitless investigation the mayor and council of Cliffport have sent flyers along the coast to the east and west as well as into the interior of the country. The flyers offer a substantial reward to any group of heroes who can solve the mystery, and additional rewards for the safe return of any of the missing citizens. This call has been answered by a few groups of heroes, but the first two groups were soundly thumped by a female halfling who may have had some help, but it’s hard to say because those heroes who aren’t in pine boxes have fled for their lives. Now a new group which includes a paladin, a rogue, a wizard and a barbarian have answered the call.
