Atop a nearby rise the infuriated priestess stood, taking in the unfolding scene in the valley below. How dare these metallic, roaring, foreigners loot their temples. She offered up a silent, vengeful prayer to her gods, may their wrath befall these intruders!
It is mid afternoon and the characters are relaxing and taking a well deserved rest from their latest successful venture.
A pirate ship docks in town, laden with treasure and coin. The sailors begin their carousing; paying with gold coins from some country that no one has ever heard of. They also sell off small, strange statuettes crafted from onyx, giving one to the characters as payment or a gift.
However, over the course of a few days the sailors seem in a panic and attempt to get back all of the statuettes from everyone they had given them to.

The Forgotten Brand
Why do they choose to re-appear now? Perhaps it is just a crazed local? What will happen to the child?
The shack of a fisherman and his family lies deserted a few miles away from the nearest town. Close to the sea and his source of income. Should the players happen along, they will hear faint, distressed, wailing, that of a child coming from the well behind the shack, coming from deep in the well. Pulling the rope up will bring up a small baby, inside the well's bucket with a symbol scratched into its forehead. Anyone with knowledge of religious/ancient history will recognize the mark as belonging to a tribe of seafaring zealots that haven't been see in centuries.

An interesting little idea I came up with. Also my first attempt at a 100 Word Challenge.
The villagers of an outlying settlement are brought news of a rare plant by one of their hunters/trappers. This plant, long since thought to have vanished forever, begins to crop up here and there. Mages and herbalists alike are trying hard to get their hands on good specimens and pay well. However, almost as soon as they reappeared, they're gone again, leaving no trace that they existed. It is up to the players to figure out what is going on, is this some strange will of nature? Are their darker forces at work? What is the secret of this plant?
