Santa is in need of a new sack. The old one is thread bare and can only be repaired with the “magic silk” found from the Monks on the Silk Road. Through the ages, however, the Silk Road has become a hazardous place. The once thriving trade rout has become a Mecca for illegal activity and highly unsavory characters. The dragon guardians that have been newly placed in their towns speak of increased activity. Apparently the word of Santa’s magic silk has gotten out, and a band of privateers is wreaking havoc along the Silk Road in order to find and commandeer the magic silk for themselves. Reports from the town Dragons have come in telling of a band of privateers called “The Elegant Gentlemen Brigade” who are causing quite a bit of trouble for traders, clergy and travelers. Some rumor the privateers to have been involved in the illegal acquisition of dragon eggs along with other high priced contraband. December 20, 8pm EST the Commander will meet at Brit Counselor's Hall to lead a party in search of the abducted tailor, and apprehension of the notorious band of thugs.
