Excerpt from Scrolls of Destiny
All the King’s Artisans
King Zelphan recently commissioned five artists, one named Nomark, to depict the king at various times in his life, including one scene of Zelphan ascending the throne as a boy after his father died in battle. Each artist worked in a different medium, such as watercolor, and featured a different scene in their work. The king paid handsomely for the works, from 100 gold to 500 gold, going up in 100-gold intervals. Glydon’s painting earned more gold from the king’s coffers than did the one done in oils, which earned more than the painting depicting the king marrying Queen Isarma. King Zelphan paid 100 gold more for the painting of him commanding troops in the war against the drow than he did for the painting done in tempera. King Zelphan loved the scene of himself as a young man hunting deer in his forests so much so that he paid 100 gold more than what he paid for Korban’s artwork. The king paid Tupak 100 less than he paid for the art done in charcoal but 100 more than he paid for the painting depicting him feeding the poor. The artist paid 400 gold for their art is not Aliardae. Korban and the artist who worked in oil are old friends and have discussed working together on another project for the king. Glydon, who didn’t create the painting featuring the king feeding the poor, and the artist who worked in charcoal are rival artists in their home town of Guthren Way. Tumard impressed King Zelphan with his knowledge of the king’s personal history; the artist working in pastels impressed Queen Isarma with his wit and charm. Which scene was worked in charcoal?
The marriage scene
Customizing the puzzle
Change the names, the scenes to performance acts, and the mediums to tent colors, and the king could hire traveling performers for a festival. You can also change the question as well to fit your needs. Maybe the solution tells them who isn’t happy with their fee and is planning to rob the king. Perhaps the successful completion of the puzzle gives a bonus to diplomacy checks with the king or the artists. Maybe the oil painting was destroyed and the king needs the PCs to find the original artist to remake it. This puzzle can be used for side quest or an amusing challenge prior to receiving an art object as treasure.
