Welcome to the Bait Shop, come right in! Missing the manticore? Well he got tetchy so we replaced him with Greg. Who is Greg? Well he is the red dragon behind me. Pay him no mind, as long as you don’t try to steal you should be fine.
Here in the Bait Shop we have many fine wares to tickle your brain meats! What? You thought we carried such drab materials as potions or swords? BAH! What we deal in…is inspiration! Need a story? Come in and see what catches your fancy! Need a plan to deal with those dastardly adventurers? We got barrels full of em.
This is still a problem and no one seems to be able to solve it. Perhaps I should put an exclamation point over the barrels. That usually attracts hardy adventurers.
Today on offer, I present the following 5 pieces of Bait! Perhaps one will tantalize you? Entice you? Inspire you?
Oh and no charge, at least for today. Consider these a fine sample of our wares. Welcome to the Bait Shop. I hope you can hook a good one with these!

Lord Horatio Visits – It’s the Spring Festival in the small village of Tront. However, the village has an unexpected guest in a Lord of the Fey. He demands amusements, & will punish those who fail to provide him such things. The party is caught up in the mess! How will they solve it?
Disappearing Act – A Town has vanished. Seemingly removed from existence completely. No one knows where it went or what happened. A few weeks later, another town gone. A few weeks more yet another. The party is hired to determine what is going on before the entire kingdom disappears
Groundhog Day – The party wakes up from their slumber only to find themselves back where they started the day before. They repeat the same actions during the day, go to bed that night, only to wake up back where they started. Over & over it repeats. What is causing this?
The Good Magician – There is a legend that tells of a hidden library in the world, its halls too large for its boundaries. Within lies a sage, a magician, who can answer any question. The cost? 1 Year of Service from the petitioner. The party is hired to escort a noble there so they can ask a question.
Mind of Iron – The party finds a sword in a tomb. A player, upon taking it up, hears whispers in their mind, leading them to find other items: Armor, Shield, & so on. The more items they find, the louder and more demanding the voice becomes. As if something is getting stronger…and wants something
