A travelling Rondo is in town!

Plot Synopsis

A travelling Rondo set up a Menajerie just west of Rougtero, and Members of the Rondo began passing out small numbered tokens to residents. The tokens were part of a free raffle, and people need only enter the menajerie and check the list for their number to determine if they had won a prize.

Also inside the Menajerie, there were games, foods, and other sorts of entertainment. Many visitors who played games received prizes for winning. Some of these prizes contained a small paper proclaiming them a winner. These papers, it was found, were vouchers for free admittance to the new park of amusement called Wonder World. This new attraction is located on an island north of the Great Rice Paddy, but can be reached by portal from many public portal sites, including the Portal Farm. Many of those who received vouchers had planned to travel to the park the following day to experience the Wonder first hand.

Upon arriving the next morning, the residents of Rougtero were greeted with sad news: The Menajerie would not open this day. Upon inquireing, the nomads revealed that one of their number had been attacked. Just at that moment, one woman came running from the gate screaming "he's gone! I couldn't save him." The group of adventurers-on-holiday offered to help.

The nomads escorted the group into the camp to view the scene. They found the leader of the Rondo lying dead in his tent with four knife wounds, the knives were still present. The knives were adorned with a symbol composed of a thorny rose. After gathering all the information they thought they could get, they decided to travel to Wonder World and inquire of the other nomads there.

After delivering the sad news to the other Rondos, they found one who seen the knives before and 'convinced him' to answer more questions. They were told that this individual had been mugged in an attempt at gaining information that could be used to blackmail other Rondo leaders. With the help of the Wizards Guild of Centralia, they gained the name of the attacker.

Upon returning to Rougtero, the wife of the slain leader offered some new information. She had been going through his belongings in an attempt to determine a possible motive, when she came upon some odd entries in their business ledger - payments to 'BLZ', which were determined to be the initials of the mysterious mugger.

One other of the group 'recovered' the ledgers of some other Rondo leaders, and they were also making payments to BLZ. With this brought to light, the nomads promised to spread word of the danger this individual poses.
