A messenger brought you the following letter:
Dear (Your Character Name),
I regret to inform you that Aldous Sparkwell has passed away. You have been named as a benefactor in his estate. Please join me on the Tenth day of Eyre in my office in Korranberg for the reading of his last will and testament. Your travel arrangements have been taken care of, enclosed are the appropriate papers and tickets.
Attorney at Law
You have no idea who Aldous Sparkwell is, but you are too curious not to go. The last leg of your travels has you on the Lightning Rail traveling from Starilaskur to Korranberg. The train porter leads you to your seat and you find your self sharing a compartment with a strange and ragtag group of travelers.
