ACT I: The Jewel in the Water
Ill-fated fortune has brought you to River Falls. Heat shimmer bathes the hard-packed dirt. A hot wind blows dust up into your eyes. You begin to think River Falls' name was ill-conceived.
Gaunt faces greet you, drawn and starving. Hopeless eyes trace your path into the center of town. A man rises from the shade of a dying tree and walks over to you. He lowers a makeshift dust mask from his face. He introduces himself as Warren, River Falls' lay-leader.
Dire words follow. He weaves a tale of hardship and woe. It seems a sacred jewel has been stolen from a local holy site. He goes on to explain the founding of River Falls. Though you could not tell now, it is located next to a once-mighty river. Behind the waterfall the town is named after is a shrine that held a stone—an unpolished jewel.
“The jewel protects this place. We have left it unprotected and a thief has taken it from us. Our apathy has offended the Mother. Now the crops wither and the river has dried up. We are lost unless we can recover the Stone of Life.
"None who know what that jewel does would dare enter the cave, let alone steal it. The stone brings life as long as it rests upon the altar. Separated from the shrine, the stone brings death. "It is prophesied that the jewel and prosperity are interwoven. Not just prosperity for River Falls, but for the whole of the four kingdoms. This darkness will spread.
"To steal the jewel would be to bring death down upon all people and yourself. Whoever did this…doom will surely find them.” He tells you they are holding a stranger in the garrison, but she refuses to talk. Her name is Piper. She says she knows nothing of a jewel, but her eyes speak of fear and lies. He suggests you start with her.
