Recovering Stolen Gryphon Eggs
Post date: Mar 11, 2018 6:17:54 PM
The town of Mountainfeet has something to celebrate: the gryphon mated pair they protect has finally laid a clutch of eggs. Populations of rare beasts such as gryphons had been near-decimated two hundred years ago before the fall of the Chirurgui – mages who could cleave aspects off of living things and stitch them to whom they pleased. There are families who breed and raise rare beasts for humanoid companionship and sell them for exorbitant prices. Some towns have made it their purpose to raise injured or orphaned beasts with intents on releasing them back into the wild, or at least giving them comfortable lives. It doesn’t hurt that tourists pay to see the rare animals, something that Mountainfeet was hoping to capitalize on to bolster resources after a year of bad harvest and recent earthquakes.
The celebration, however, has turned into a disaster: amidst the influx of visitors hoping to witness the hatching was a thief. And that thief has stolen the gryphon eggs. Mountainfeet’s city council has hired you to investigate and retrieve the eggs and bring the criminal to justice. This game will be run in Fate Core.
