In Game: The Wandering Tavern, Thieves Isle, Tarnaal
OOG: Tarzana, CA
GM: Kevin Thomas

Synopsis: Heroes from every corner of Xaria enter a local inn or bar on their personal business, but all arrive at The Wandering Tavern ... a tavern that is all places and none. The tavern’s owner, Sebastian Shrike, asks them for help in returning to him his lost love -- the Princess Kali of Tarnaal. In order to get to Tarnaal, the heroes first recover a Consortium artifact called an Absence Mirror from one of the ancient mages on the Thieves’ Isle. The heroes free Princess Kali from Tarnaal, as well as recover a powerful artifact called The Eye of Munin. As reward for reuniting him with his lost love, Shrike gives them each a wooden Tavern Coin -- a magic token that will enable them to return to the Tavern at a time of their choosing. Shrike and Kali leave the tavern together, giving ownership of the tavern over to whichever hero wants it. Penn, Madeline and Katherine become partners as the new owners of The Wandering Tavern.
