Professor Petros Lorrimor was a scholar of magic and a student of cults, ancient evils and dark magic. A good man himself, Petros felt that the best way to combat the enemy is to understand them better. To this end, he often found himself involved with people of questionable character, and was perhaps suspected by others as being up to no good himself.
At some point in your pasts, your paths each crossed with Professor Lorrimor. It’s up to each of you to determine how that may have been (e.g. one or the other of you helped out in a tight spot, perhaps you studied under him at the University of Leipstadt, or maybe you were a bodyguard for a time).
Now, you have been told that Professor Lorrimor has died, and that your attendance at his funeral has been requested. You need to travel to the town of Ravengro, in the centre of the Principality of Ustalav, in the north-eastern part of the North Kingdom. You should have just enough time to reach Ravengro before the scheduled date of the funeral (in about a week).
