A year to the day after they left, each receive a letter from a messenger from the Paard Guild.
“Dear Young Hero,
At the request of your Father, I am sending this letter to you. I request you meet my self and your friends from the Sorrowful Home for Boys Lost and Forsaken at the Third Portal Tavern, in the old merchant’s square. Tell the bartender, ‘I am here to see the White Dragon.’ He will lead to a private table where I will meet you at. I will meet you on the day after the next full moon. Please wait for me, I have what you have been seeking.
Cleric of St. Lawrence, Creator’s Cathedral of Marbless”
GM note for PC: It is this year that you have for your backstory. This backstory is how you explain you got to Lvl 1 and any NPCs you may have met along the way or where in the world you traveled.
