The World of Pandeias
Merchant from Aranea that has employed the Player Characters
Absolam has been running a small tavern/inn to gather an amount of gold in order to move to a larger city and start a bigger business of selling rare and historic artifacts.
By chance he hired the players to investigate a tip he received about an old tower that might have valuable relics. After selling his tavern he made enough gold to lease a building within the Kingdom of Rinfel.
