I feel like I missed an integral part of the plot...
The Paragons of Palladium have returned for another trial run.
Cinder - Fiery superweapon made during the Elf-Dwarf War.
(not played today) Black Arrow Iatos - Elder archer, granted a tiny sliver of supernatural skill from the creature simply known as 'The Archer'
Ashton - Elven Noble with exceptional Ice powers. Fanboy of the Paragons
GiGi - Goblin Cobbler who made a deal with a Deevil. Informant for the Paragons
(not played today) Rina - Raised as a Barbarian, skilled as a Paladin, with the blessing of her Pantheon.
The Paragons, or perhaps a second string of them, find themselves investigating a theft, that ends up having the thief beat a path to their door. Literally.
