The Lanvernite Succession
James Rathbone lived in Crystal Falls, above the town at the end of Oak Hollow Lane. Rathbone was an old seer, a Roland partisan who survived the coup, but who had been waiting many long years for the code phrase “Athena arrives”.
Rathbone told the PCs about the original Olive Council and its successful plot to kidnap Roland. He also told them about the Amulet of Kings. He sent them to the old dwarven mine to get emerald agate. He also mentioned the Oaken Library and the Oracle of Gneiss as possible sources of information about the amulet.
After exploring the old dwarven mine, the PCs discovered that Rathbone’s house had been burned down, and that Rathbone was missing. One of the townspeople said that the Iron Guard burned the house. Arkon Salt tried to locate Rathbone with a spell, but the results indicated that Rathbone was either dead or on another plane.
