Odysseus Kent is a mystery; a drifter, a nobody, a blot on the population charter. He makes a living as a freelance treasure hunter. Physically, he is around 19 with absolutely no skin pigment and jet black, uncombed hair. For some reason he dresses like someone from the Regency period.
Odysseus has arrived in a small village community in search of a bonanza called the Lost Treasure of Randolph McBoing. He has tracked the burial site down to a plot in the local churchyard, but the parish priest won't let him dig there. As luck would have it, the man due to be buried there is on his last legs. Unfortunately he has vowed never to die until his last wishes are fulfilled. He's been tucked up in bed for ten weeks now; the old guy means business. Your task is to help him shuffle off this mortal coil and, consequently, gain access to the burial site.
