Description

Your wizards are torn with conflicting opinions over the truth pertaining to a fabled fruit tree that points at the existence of supreme beings.

The arguments have been raging for weeks and they have finally decided to seek out this relic of mythical origins to settle the matter of who is right.

Naturally, these are men and women better suited to dimly lit libraries and musty alcoves than roaming the land. You guessed it—they request an escort of your finest scouts.

It presents an interesting philosophical and moral platform and the buzz has spread to the town in general—certainly worth a look by some of your advanced scouts, right?

Successful Mission Report

Your scouts report that the wizards reached the site of the tree and are camped around it.

They've expressed a desire to remain and study what was previously believed to be a fairytale...

Quest Completion

The journey was for the most part dependent on the parchments of your studious magi.

The scouts did their jobs, albeit in constant conflict with their charges, but soon enough the golden tree was spotted against the horizon and a great cheer went up amongst the party.

The discovery alone could not prove or disprove anything solid and the wizards set up camp and argued through the night.

Your scouts slipped away at the earliest opportunity to make their report.

Description

The fires of debate have cooled at the wizards camp. Two of the ring-leaders have a fresh platform of differing opinion—the interpretation of a series of diaries dating to around the time of the tree first being discovered.

The demanding Magi would like if these diaries could be fetched and brought to them so that they can settle the matter once and for all.

There are conveniently a set of the diaries in your town library.

Quest Completion

Far from grateful, the caravan with the diaries barely made it into the camp before the esteemed members of your magical faculty were swarming all over them.

The diaries were passed around and much umming and erring was made over their meanings. The conflict of opinions continued through the night.

Description

The wizards camped around the golden apple tree have been plunged into a tragic nightmare. With a majority vote, they agreed that the diaries seemed to support the existence of supreme beings—gods&mdashwith a number of the stalwart objectors reluctantly backing down and switching sides.

Horald Glick was one of those who refused to back down, even in the face of damning evidence against his theories of magical explosions, and leaps forward in the progression of the races from molecules to Men, Dwarves, Elves, and Orcs.. and so on.

Glick has gone missing—and with him he has taken the diaries and killed two of his former colleagues.

Your best advanced scouts are required to hunt this renegade wizard down before he can escape justice.

Successful Mission Report

Despite the loss of many of your men, your scouts managed to apprehend the rogue wizard and deliver him to the local wizards at their encampment.

Quest Completion

Your scouts rode hard through the night, covering much land, with the grim task of bringing in a murderer.

He was not an easy prisoner to take and in a flash of fireballs, many of your scouts were burned to death.

They fought well to bring him in and the town's wizards had an exceptionally grim punishment.

Without specifically telling you what they intended to do, they did promise a one-off mana spike to benefit your city.

They also warned of purple clouds.
