About the adventure

The Beasleys are retured former adventurers who have settled down in an out-of-the-way farm to raise their children. Fixing up a dilapidated old country estate they had acquired as a reward for their great deeds is the perfect, idyllic setting to raise two rambunctious children in peace and safety. Mateo Wumplethorn, their very elderly cousin wants the party to check in on the Beasleys and will pay expenses plus a fee to ensure their safety; he is fond of his cousins, and knows their former line of work may have left enemies in their wake. Do an old Halfling a favor? Your party of 4th level adventurers have gained some renown and the work around here is dull and beneath your talents. Perhaps a change of scenery is in order? And it never hurts to network! DM Style: "Yes, and..." DM who loves creative thinkers, mystery solvers, role-players, and team players. Strong Lines & negotiable Veils Regular check-ins during and after sessions
