Box of Hope


If hope were in a box… would you get it?


What is hope? Hope, for most people, is the feeling that something can happen even when the odds are stacked against it. Others say it’s an expectation. What if hope had a physical form? What if all the powers of hope were in a container? That it had the power to win any battle, help discover any item, cure any disease, and achieve any dream? If hope were in a box… would you get it?

The catch? There's only one.

For centuries, this magical item has been both the bane and elixir to the inhabitants of this planet. It helps any who can get their hands upon it… no matter their intentions or wishes. Once a year, it can be used. Then after, it disappears… where it goes, only god knows. Sometimes it’s a city, or perhaps a jungle…. Waiting for days, weeks… maybe even years before someone happens to find it. Though once it is found, it would need a week before it can be used. This is to warm it up for its use… and allow anyone else the chance to take it.

So now we are in the present day. In a chain of events that involved three idiots and a cannon, the cube has now made its way into the city of SoaH. Engraved on the very shell itself, is this message:

“Contained within this box lies the hopes and dreams of millions… open and see your true destiny.”

To whom it may concern, this small relic will start and ignite a chain of events that will snowball into an experience that could shake the very foundation of the city to ruin…

Stormbound, the ship rolls hard over to once side. All that is not strapped down is tossed violently overboard in a splash of freezing water.

There, on the horizon- a tower. Squat, it stands alone on a tiny island. However, it's the only land in sight, and any more of this ferocious storm will crush the boat to splinters.

Taking shelter within the ornate entryway of the squat tor, the party notes with interest that no signs of life break the silence of the stone tower. As they take another step forward, they realise why.


This is the fabled tower of Brenji, a rich merchant who wished none to share his enormous wealth. He constructed this tower to store his gold- trapped and ready for any potential thieves. But the ingenious pitfalls and scything walls are not the only dangers within the silent walls of the building. A guardian, left behind by Brenji, still stalks these very halls.

A rattling hiss echoes somewhere from below...
