Darksun "The Verdant Seed"
Rhotan Vor of Balic
Dwarf trademaster of the House of Wavir who hires the pc's to find the treasure vault of Darom Madar.
Rhotan Vor job offer to the pc’s:
Rhotan has recently come into possession of some very valuable information. In Balic, he encountered a drunken human in a seedy tavern who claimed to be a descendant of Darom Madar, the last elder of the long-dead Madar merchant house. In addition, the man claimed to know the location of Darom Madar’s treasure vault, which he offered to Rhotan for the sum of 30 gp. Rhotan is no fool, but 30 gp seemed a small price to pay for what could be the location of one of the greatest lost treasures of Athas. Although the man did not know the exact location of the treasure vault, he told Rhotan that it lay within the Canyon of Gothay near the alluvial sand wastes in the Tablelands east of Tyr. The vault is rumored to contain vast wealth, from metal coins, armor, and weapons to priceless artifacts dating from Athas’ more verdant past. Rhotan asks the characters to search the Canyon of Gothay and ascertain if the vault exists. If it does, it undoubtedly holds more wealth than the characters can hope to carry away themselves. Therefore, Rhotan offers the characters their pick of any treasure the vault may contain plus a 10 percent share once the remainder of the goods and artifacts are sold in Tyr, Rhotan’s next destination. Rhotan and his caravan travel with the characters, although they do not aid the characters in combat. Rhotan and his men will not enter the Canyon of Gothay until the characters have found the vault and cleared any threats to their safety.
