While enjoying a few drinks at the local tavern: The Quarterstaff, a bet involving a distant Tomb catches your attention.

An obviously tipsy Mercenary of Human Heritage by the name of Lucinda Wardroper the Town-winner is betting that the Party will not be able to recover part of a Skum. .

The man is willing to lay 60 Gold Pieces against the terms of the bet at 1/1 Odds. There is 1 other taker at 52 GP, so the Total Buy-In for this particular Wager is 112 Gold Pieces. The Payoff for this Wager is 224 Gold Pieces if the Terms of the bet are met.

Skums do indeed, inhabit this area. Here are the Stats should they elect to take the bet:
