Premise

From the introduction:

While minding your own business at the bar in the Main Hall, you chance to overhear a conversation between two slightly drunk men at the next table.

It turns out that these two work for Lord H. R. Bottomsmith, a man whose utter lack of scruples is at least as famous as his great wealth. As they talk, you realize they are paid assassins!

You hear one of them say that his boss Lord Bottomsmith has contracted them to kill an Artisan's Guild leader in the nearby town of Hobnail Junction. Just then, one of them looks up. You avert your gaze, but not quickly enough to keep him from noticing your staring.

As you are leaving the hall, someone hits you from behind and knocks you unconscious!

When your vision clears, you find yourself in a cheap hotel room. Beside you lies the dead body of the aforementioned guild leader. His blood is on your favorite weapon.

You realize the assassins have decided to kill two birds with one stone by framing you in the murder they have committed!

The only way to clear your name is to travel to Bottomsmith's castle, find the proof of his murderous conspiracy, and carry it to the local judge, before the soldiers can arrest you. If they find you before you can get the proof to the judge, you'll hang!

The soldiers are coming. You had better get out of here quick!
