Background and Info

A city of mysteries, secrets, and dark histories, Ptolus lies forever in the shadow of a towering stone spire reaching impossibly high into the sky, itself an enigma and a reminder of evil long past. Ptolus is a place where the supernatural is expected, and treachery lies around every corner—or is it that the supernatural lies around every corner and treachery is expected? Either way, Ptolus is a city of danger, magic, intrigue, and above all: adventure.

Ptolus... city of beauty and intrigue.

over the past several months, business has been booming for the delvers guild. they have introduced their Adventurer for a day program. taking rich playboys with more money than brains into the levels of the catacombs. letting them fight monsters and discover traps. the program has been doing great until the past couple of weeks. Delvers have been guiding their tours into the deeps but of the past couple, only the tourists have been returning. They thought the new additions to the tour were strictly brilliant. it seems almost like the delvers are being captured in the dark.

the local papers have been reporting similar stories from other locales as well. the delvers go in on a routine patrol and they do not come out.

you are reading the paper's coverage of the event each in your own ward of the city. some in local bars and taverns, some in small bistros.
each of you looks up from your paper when you receive a slight tap on th arm. looking up, you see a young street urchin saying your name and holding up a small card. after tipping the waif, you look at the card. it is an embossed card. inviting you to the Swordthrowers Club.

Being long time Ptolus residents you know that when you are "invited" to the Swordthrowers club, you go as soon as is physically possible.
OUT OF CHARACTER
you guys are welcome to roleplay the summons. otherwise the campaign will begin at the front foor to the SWC
