“Greetings from Restov and congratulations on your triumphs. I hope we are entering a time in which these lands will be called stolen only in history texts! Yet it would seem that for all your victories, your fellow colonists to the east have met with trouble. The settlers of Varnhold are not responding to messengers- and indeed, some envoys have gone missing as well. You may be noticed this on your own, but as the political climate here in Restov grows more turbulent, we find ourselves increasingly limited to the amount of aid we can send. Certainly, we cannot send troops south to Varnhold to investigate without our overly watchful lords to the north misinterpret the act. And so it falls to you, I fear, to investigate the Varnhold mystery. For if something dire has befallen the colony you must realize that your own could be next!
Trusting in your discretion and expedience,
Jamandi Aldori- Swordlord of Restov
Vanished Without a Trace
The Stolen Lands consume many wanderers – the perios of its rugged wildernesses and hidden mysteries prey upon even the wariest of travelers. Founded upon one of the most savage frontiers, the colony of Varnhold defied the many dangers of the harsh region. At least, it did until all the residents of the fledgling community completely disappeared. Now it falls to the PCs to discover what became of their eastern neighbor, a secret steeped in generations – old hatreds and the mysteries of an empire long crumbled to dust. Can the Council of Greensward uncover the terrible secret behind this shocking disappearance before the same calamity befalls their land?
