Revenge of the Mad Baker

The PCs wander into a magic shop and find the owner dead, covered in chocolate, with a look of horror frozen on his face. What monster could have done this?

Back Story

Paige Schuppert is a renowned food mage and an amazingly-skilled maker of baked goods and candy. She's also quite paranoid and has never gotten along well with others. If left in the peace of her own kitchen, she's fine and never bothers anyone.

Just recently, she started selling enchanted chocolates that mimic the effects of potions and other magic items, as well as tiny chocolate Golems. Unfortunately, she didn't know anything about the Enchanter's Syndicate.

As one might expect, one of their enforcers paid her a visit. She listened quietly and considered what he had to say. The next time he showed up, she was ready for him. In the interim she made some new friends: a large, anthropomorphic rabbit-shaped chocolate golem, and a horde of pixie-sized hard candy golems.

The enforcer walked in the front door like he owned the place and Paige ambushed him. The golems picked him up and carried him to a large vat of bubbling chocolate. After a brief conversation, she ordered him dropped in and the lid latched. As screams rent the air, she left her kitchen forever, her new friends in tow.

Now on the run from the Syndicate, Paige is taking the fight to them, one by one, leaving each victim encased in chocolate.
