A Northern Plague
A merchant who's son has gone missing in Duvik's Pass
Dovah is a wealthy merchant, and like most wealthy merchants, he has a particular love of coin and all things fancy. When he sent his son north to Duvik’s Pass, he saw it as a chance to make some money. News of the silver found in the area had spread quick, and Dovah knew that if he didn’t get there first, someone else would. So he gave his son a considerable amount of gold, and sent him on his way. But after just a few weeks, he stopped getting correspondence of any type from his son, and the messengers he sent returned empty handed.
Stricken with grief and guilt, he decided to do what any father would; he left his wife to run the his shop, Dovah’s Delicates, and headed north to Duvik’s Pass.
