Stygian Crypts and Shining Heroes
Valmour Tessount (Deceased)
The black-sheep son of prominent aristocrats, Valmour Tessount found himself written out of his father’s will when his hedonistic behavior shamed his family once too often. In an uncharacteristically public display, the senior Tessount announced that he would bequeath his entire estate to Valmour’s younger brother Sanoped. In response, Valmour pilfered a sizable cache of gems from the family vaults, took up the path of the warlord, and embarked on a life of debauchery and ill-fated adventures. Now, the prodigal son has a chance to restore his fortunes.
When Valmour’s father recently passed away, the estranged warlord returned to the family estate to pay his respects. Only then did he discover that the senior Tessount had left a small tract of land to his wayward son—the site of a failed copper mine now known as Tessount’s Folly.
Valmour hired the heroes to investigate problems in his mine, but was overtaken with greed, and was destroyed by the heroes after being changed into a cursed being.
