>>54332281>It could easily fit if their benefactor is a member of the Mortuary Cult. Easy explanation? The PCs are all descended from or related to a treasure hunting gang from centuries ago, and this priest wants them to go find what was stolen before his master wakes up and notices his ivory dildo or whatever is missing and things get REALLY bad.
Honestly I was thinking the same thing, having their 'handler' be a Liche Priest. I was going to start them in Stirland, so it seems like it would be easy for this priest to meet up with the party and direct them at the heed of his Tomb Liege. I do like the whole 'they are ancestors of an old treasure hunting gang' from centuries ago thing. Perhaps whatever they originally stole was divided into three chunks - each in a different corner of the Old World. Something in Templehof, something in Marienburg and something in Karak Eight Peaks.
