While in the local bar, Squelch the goblin stumbles in and says he was the one that sent the mission request.
The party travels out of town with Squelch when the find a dead man surrounded by baddies.
As night begins to fall, the group finds a naked man pinned under a tree. He introduces himself as James Copperstaff. The party feeds and cloths him, but in the middle of the night, James transforms into a wererat. The party tries to subdue him, but he eventually scampers off into the woods.
After a night’s rest, the group makes it to a dilapidated tower. They are immediately confronted by an assassin who tells Whiskey that the Old Man is still trying to kill him.
The group proceeds though the tower, eventually finding a chess piece containing the soul of Hugo Harpspell. Hugo asks that the group sets his soul free and clears his tower. In exchange, he will grant the tower to the group.
After several more fights, the party is confronted by a succubus and her tiger. During an exchange, the young red dragon Tatiana lands back at the tower. The goblins hadn’t killed her after all. She breaks though the upper level and descends on the current room, ending the succubus with a blast of fire.
The party engages Tatiana and eventually forces her to flee. Hugo’s soul returns to grant the key word for the tower and much loot is gained.
