"I was traveling with my son to visit my husband's grave when we were accosted by a group of bandits. We didn't have enough to satisfy their tastes, apparently, so they took my son for ransom. I want no negotiations and no semblance of mercy. Eradicate them and bring back my son. My possessions are also necessary for your payment; return whatever they haven't sold off already."

The party, excited to have their first contract, sought out the bandit camp and did what they do best; send Jor'n to tank while Bovo and Sarren sneak around the back. In this case, Bovo took out a few scouts, finding a somewhat friendly mimic masquerading as a pebble in the process, then climbed a wall and broke into the bandits' stronghold through a window while Jor'n and Sarren attacked the bandits head-on through their front gates.
Bovo recovered Astrid Ancelle's son, Antoine, who "neutralized" his captor under mysterious circumstances (he actually sucked out her soul. Kid's a mage. Who knew?).
Jor'n and Sarren, working in tandem (read; Jor'n tanked the crucible of archers until he either took them out or they ran), managed to complete the rest of the contract. On the back of the Ancelle Family horses, they rode back to Northgate – family heir, heirlooms, and the mimic, which was christened Fatty Lumpkins, courtesy of Bovo, in tow - their first contract a resounding success.
GM Notes: JOR'N IS FUCKING BROKEN WHY DID I ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN WE'RE ONE SESSION IN AND I ALREADY WANT TO DIE
