In the small town of Baxter Springs, Kansas lives Robert "Bob" Anderson, a man who loves three things--running his businesses, recreating Civil War battles, and collecting artifacts from the Old West.
Associates of the heroes believe his collection contains relics taken from Native American tribes without their permission. Can the heroes uncover the truth?

Over the weekend I ran two sessions of The Templar Mystery at Con of the North; I think they went well, and I'm planning to run a sequel to it--hopefully in person this time--at the Con next year. Since one of the main NPCs managed to survive the scenario, I've created a piece that can provide some exposition when the heroes resume their adventures. It takes the form of a short news story that they might find on the Internet, one that makes it clear their rival will be coming after them.

Here's one more item as we approach Con of the North--part of Professor Hall's notes on the Knights Templar.
This is something new I'm trying for the scenario The Templar Mystery, giving the players information directly that can be useful during the session.

Continuing the lead-up to Con of the North next weekend, here's a video that presents a history of the Knights Templar--and it, in turn, links to numerous other ones.

This is the first day of February, the month in which Con of the North 2021 will take place. Related to that, I have three updates to mention.
First, I've revised the PDF for Iconic Heroes on Drivethrurpg.com, correcting some errors in character stats.
Next, I added two titles to Appendix N that were useful in my research for The Templar Mystery, which I'll be running at the Con. They are Dungeon, Fire and Sword by John J. Robinson, a detailed history of the Templars during the Crusades; and A Popular History of the Catholic Church, a pocket-sized book that describes just what it says.
Finally, there are a few slots remaining for the Sunday Treasure Hunter Adventures game; the one on Saturday is full.
