The Chaos Scar - Jobs and Events

Jobs

The rumors are to entice the party's spirit of adventure. These jobs are what puts money in their pockets. Wall postings are essentially wanted ads posted on the inner wall of the keep. Word of Mouth jobs are essentially rumors but with a promise of payment. Enough jobs come from the Saruun Guildhall that it has its own category. Finally the events are adventures that come to the keep and are initiated by the Dungeon Master. I've numbered some categories since they can be treated similar to rumors, however the jump in danger levels is pretty steep between 3rd and 7th level so you may wish to hand these out as appropriate.
