An Identity Crisis

An Identity Crisis Level 16 Major Quest
Nagging at the back of the mind of the five founding members of the Forgotten is the question of his or her true identity. Who were they, why were they in the Storm Horns and what ends did their former selves leave untied?
Instigator: The Forgotten Additional Rewards: 1 DM-selected feat
Although this is listed as a major quest, it is actually 6 minor quests strung together. As each of the 5 amnesia-ridden characters discovers their true identity or that of an important NPC, in Autumn‘s and The Fey’s cases, the group will be awarded XP for one standard level 16 monster and that character’s player will be given one free feat. Connecting the dots will likely be a long and oft-interrupted journey, so I will try to keep a log of the clues and hints that you’ve collectively amassed and recognized as such here. The Fetters and the prophecy are good starting points.

She’s afraid, she’s much too young to be on her own. She screams. A pair of wrinkled hands lovingly pick her up and she knows she’ll be OK.

The Guardian

  • What:

The Healer

  • Death Glimpses: He is playing cards. He is the joker, his opponent the king. He’s about to win, but a new card enters play: the princess. To discard the king, he must also discard the princess. Too high a cost, he folds… and runs.
