Alright, so my party's mage is probably not ethical enough right now for me to pull this off, but who knows where he'll be in 9 months of game time? I'm probably voting it higher than I normally would for such a short submission, but it is so perfect for my needs, so easily adaptable and so much fun, that I have to. Thanks for the idea -- and the evil grin.

I agree with Melvins Cat: this would be fun to play as a mistaken identity. Not only would the characters feel compelled to save a child, but it would add the mystery of tracking down the real father. Even better if there is a chance one of the characters is the father but finds out through the course of the adventure that he is not.
