Setting
In the Border Princes, a Princedom dubbed Padua, upon (or overlooking) the river Avon.
Tales of ruins to the south.
The abutting prince, an Arabyan sheikh, claims he is the proper ruler of our land.
The Lonely Mountain in the distance to the north is claimed to be a dormant volcano. There are often geysers of rotten smelling water that erupt nearby.
There are Badlands to the north, beyond the mountains. They are inhabited by goblinoids.
There are supposedly elvish ruins to the north.
Padua is a relatively prosperous crossroads with approximately 100 settlers.

The Story Begins
A group of adventurers/treasure seekers show up in Padua with some goods to sell. The rulers of Padua require that all potentially valuable goods be assessed by them for their personal interests. These rulers send the characters with the antiquities curator priest to evaluate the goods.

Vaervenshyael walks in and directly asks to see a supposed "sword" the adventurers reported having. What they pull out is actually an incomplete glass-like blade that they had used as a shovel. The priest touches it and states that he believes it is magical. The companions stare him down like he is mad for saying such a thing out loud. The priest goes on to state that he also believes it to be cursed. The adventurers want no part of it. Vaervenshyael pays them 5 GC (which she makes a mental note to recoup from Ludovic).

The priest asks to borrow 3 brass to buy another item the adventurers have for sale (which she makes a mental note to recoup from him). It is apparently a pottery shard with a strange beetle/bug imprinted. He states he has a collection of these curiosities from around the realm.

The sitting ends with these facts/hooks laid out for us.
