The recently created Shady Character Society were enroute to a distant town when they were ambushed by a crazed wizard who attacked the party. After being dispatched his last words were about great magical power in the Pyramid of Shadows that was for the taking. He also had a map. So the S.C.S. went to take a look and were ambushed again by bandits with a Rage Drake. With a dazzling performace by both Pius and Kor these bandits quickly fell, and the Warlock touched a miniature golden pyramid that sent the S.C.S. into The Pyramid of Shadows.
