The second in the Jack Bedlam Adventures series.
The party are having a break after Goblin Deep, doing their own thing for a while and staying out of each other’s way.
Jack is bored so when he hears that the Mayor’s daughter, Lucinda, appears to have gone missing in the forest he takes on a commission to bring her back.
In the middle of this particular forest is an old gothic manor house called Merfidius Manor, which has long been rumoured to house a vampire.
Seems pretty simple to Jack. Go to the Manor. Find the girl. Rescue the girl from the vampire. Return and receive riches and commendations.
What could be simpler than that?
