After leaving the dream world where they fought with Navarre the adventurers discussed what their next step should be. They decided to meet with the man who called himself the hand who revealed himself to be the late brother of the King, brought back from the dead by a man who the group had assumed to be the Jester. He told them that he was the previous hand and has been trying to aid his brother since his resurrection. He also told them that in order to enter the tournament they would need a sponsor. Unfortunately, most of the sponsors had already chosen their champions, so the adventurers had to investigate further. They managed to gather information about a man known as “The Necromancer” who might be able to sponsor their participation, so they set out in order to find his estate.
