The Serpent Kingdoms
: Collect 50 jewel shards within a 130 mile radius of Ankhapur.
: Mortimer the Humble
: Posted in some of the finer taverns and at the collegiate itself are fliers calling for strong adventures to hunt for shards of an exploded orb. Each shard has a magical aura to it, and the collegiate will provide a map with the projected trajectory of each shard as well as a divining rod that hones in on the area of the shard when the PC’s get within one mile of a shard.
: A contract must be signed by the adventure(s).
: XP and Wealth rewards scale with level. If the PC’s recover 75% of the shards (before other adventuring parties), Mortimer will divulge information regarding Embriand the Baronial’s peculiar behavior as of late.
