The party has been hired on to guard Seldra and a mysterious box she carries as she travels to Neverwinter. We all have our own reasons for going to the city anyway, and going with the promise of 300 gold isn’t a bad start.
As the party is docking in Neverwinter, the boat gets mobbed by zombies and a Red Wizard from Thay arrives and steals the box Seldra was carrying, knocking her unconscious. Seldra is furious and demands we go retrieve it, or we won’t get paid the rest of our fee.
We take a short rest, then charge off through the streets of Neverwinter after the Red Wizard. We eventually catch up to him in a graveyard and fight him and some more zombies. What we recover is a glowing crown— possibly the Lost Crown of Neverwinter. It’s said that the crown can only be worn by the True Heir of Neverwinter (Lord Neverember, who currently rules Neverwinter, took over following Neverwinter’s recent collapse).
Rewards: 300 xp, 300 gp, some healing potions.
