Adventure Hook When the Broztavya Circus recently came through the Three Sisters, things went awry in Drak’kal (Disaster in Drak’kal; subscriber link) and many of its animals escaped. A velociraptor invaded the Drunken Bear tavern and though some stalwart adventurers managed to slay the beast, its unexpected, violent, and frightening death left the reptile’s spirit trapped in Zhira Medved’s basement. Not familiar with mysticism, the retired barbarian is happy to pay anyone able to rid him of the undying dino haunt.
