Captain Kaveth's Riddle


Captain Kaveth and the crew of the Will-o'-Wisp perished years ago, but Kaveth's ghost lingers on. It appears once every 7 years in the Drunken Witch Tavern, in the city of Scalabar, on the 27th of Lendys. When his ghost appears, it speaks a riddle that sheds light on a lost treasure hoard located somewhere on the Dragon Sea.
The ghost's fated appearance draws numerous sea captains to the Drunken Witch, all hoping to find the latest treasure hoard. Kaveth's most recent riddle is as follows:
Find ye a dagger of rock,
Rising from the spine of Dzanklas.
There ye will find the lost hoard of Orin Torayle.
A successful DC 21 History check reveals that Orin Torayle was a pirate captain who vanished sometime in 1448 DY. Characters who succeed on a DC 26 History check know that Dzanklas is the name of a dragon overlord that died around 1451 DY. However, characters must find an old map to learn which island used to bear Dzanklas's name.
