The wizard Quolo has no desire to rule the world, create an army of undead, or summon aberrations from ancient tomes. Instead, he merely wishes to be loved and adored.
The people of the small island village near his tower are under the effects of a many-layered spell which causes them to believe that Quolo is the hero of their village, a powerful and benevolent mage who has saved them from many threats over the years. The only exception to the adoring villagers is the trollkin priest Sayra, who casts remove curse on herself daily to remember the truth as she seeks a cure for her friends.
As the PCs explore the village of Dawnshore, they meet the locals, who compliment the local wizard just a little too effusively to be believable. Moreover, when kelp monsters attack the village, it quickly becomes apparent to seasoned adventurers that Quolo is more of a talker than a fighter. Once the secret is out, the PCs discover that Quolo found an ancient and powerful source of magic beneath the village. What happens next is up to the players!
