Forgotten Sagas of the 13th Age
The Axeburgh Lodge is a fortified hunting and fishing lodge located near Gleamwater Lake owned by the notoriously eccentric and wealthy Baronet Hanrech Dolon. It would be utterly unremarkable except for the fact that it is increasingly considered a good luck charm by adventurers and treasure hunters in the area. The Baronet Dolon has been renting the Lodge to interested parties for years, but in the last 3 years groups that have stayed at the Axeburgh and then gone off for other tasks have experienced exceptional runs of luck which has ranged from randomly discovering ancient treasure while digging a pit for a fire to escaping near certain death at the hands of an orc horde. Even visitors to the lodge who are only hunting or fishing have had much better luck than could reasonably be expected.
Baronet Dolon has seemingly been uninterested in exploiting the Axeburgh’s newfound popularity, which has lead to rumors that he is somehow the one responsible for the mysteriously bounty of good luck or at least that he knows why it is happening. His properties, excepting the lodge, have been burgled on several occasions since the streak of luck began and on two occasions someone even attempted to kidnap the Baronet or his family. As of this moment, the mystery of the Axeburgh remains that.
