Difficulty: Level 6 Over a thousand years ago, the wizard Byron Silvertongue descended into the caverns of Red Plume Mountain. Now he has made his presence known through a string of audacious thefts, leaving taunting poems in his wake. Can anyone bring Byron to justice?
NAME found Byron Silvertongue sitting on a rock overlooking a beautiful mountain vista. Byron rose, turned, and confronted NAME. After a moment of baleful glaring, the wizard shot a vicious poem NAME's way.
NAME shot right back with a poem of his/her own. It was so sublimely composed, with meaning layered upon meaning like the layers of an onion, it left Byron speechless. A tear rolled down the wizard's cheek, for he hadn't heard a poem of such quality in many years. Byron the Silvertongue came quietly after that, returning the artifacts and facing his punishment bravely.
NAME shouted some vulgarity back at Byron and charged. What NAME hadn't realized was that the wizard's words were also a spell, and he/she ran smack into an invisible wall of force, knocking him/herself out. When NAME awoke, Byron the Silvertongue was long gone, with the only remaining evidence being a small scroll with the poem inscribed upon it.
