Every story of adventure begins with some great item of singularity and amazing power. King Arthur had Excalibur. The Knights Templar have the Holy Grail. Jason stole the Gold Fleece. H.P. Lovecraft passed on the knowledge of the Necronomicon before descending into the madness of elder gods leaving the cursed book behind.
Of course that is where we come in. There are treasures that sing with the powers of the gods all over the world if you know where to look, and there is always someone willing to pay a price to access those powers. Some might call us mercenaries. Others call us entrepreneurs. We have even been called thieves a time or two. Personally, I prefer freelance acquisition consultants. That is my title, you will notice, when I hand out a business card. Welcome to Empire Auction House.
