Though the dragon was only a wyrmling, a peculiar relic was present in his hoard. The bounty hunters detected it was magic, but couldn’t find out what its powers were. As their greed drove them to an antique specialist in Panshaw, a better appraisal linked the design to the Manros, an ancient empire that spanned much of the continent’s land.
It seemed the relic itself did not hold power, but was instead some kind of key of the Manros. Panshaw held no ruins of its own, but a close city, New Mero, was built on top of some ruins, which are mostly unexplored. Hoping to get their hands on some ancient artifact, the adventurers set off to New Mero. “Beware of bandits, the roads aren’t safe!”
On their journey, our heroes reached a bridge crossing a river. A group of armed individuals stood guard there. “Oi, mate, you gots to pay the toll to cross the bridge!” As they looked the adventurers from head to toe and spotted fat purses, some started grinning “It’s 1.000 gold pieces – each!” Not wanting to part with their hard earned gold, and fearing for their relic, the heroes decided to pay the toll in blood!
