Summary Edit

The Rangers beat up some skeletons who came out of a vase. The curator of the British Museum asks them to deliver a letter to Paris.

Synopsis Edit

The smoke from the vase forms into 4 skeletons, one of which has a floating blue flame crown and holds two scimitars. The other three skeletons have broadswords.

A fight ensues, with the party easily dispatching the skeletons. Although Brutor and Bertie are injured during the battle, the King Skeleton is eventually slain by Zolf. As the final skeleton explodes, it damages nearby displays.

Elisia takes Bertie to one side, explaining that they need at least 4,000 gold that the McGuffingham family owe the Museum. As the party discuss their finances, two well dressed gnomes appear through the door, although Bertie denies any knowledge of them. The gnomes walk towards the party and ask Bertie if they can assist financially. They ask if there was any imminent danger to those nearby, and he confirms they would have been. They ask Sasha if she considers herself a damsel in distress, and seem convinced by her babbling that she is. They write a cheque and hand it to the museum curator before leaving. Saying that Bertie owes them.

Hamid, distressed about all the secrets in the party, confesses that he was kicked out of University, but doesn't explain why. Zolf asks Bertie if this will impact the group, but Bertie says nothing will affect the group or his work therein.

The party heads off to the bank. As they leave the Museum, the curator asks if they are heading to Paris, and asks if they could make a small delivery for the Museum. He explains that the Ordinators have developed the Rosetta Program to break hieroglyphics and gives them the address to deliver the package to.

The curator says that he will alert the papers to what's happened at the Museum, and the party suggests that their group name should be 'The Rangers'. The party head off to the bank.
