Potential Sequel Hooks for after Double Cross
Death of an Artist: Did your players impress Antonia with their conduct? She is in a position to give them more missions, including the one in Death of an Artist, the introductory adventure in the Dragons of Tirenia Campaign Setting, designed to be run as a sequel to this adventure, or vice versa. Famous artist Michele di Lodovico dies when he falls off the dome of the Basilica di San Zenobio - or was he thrown? As the characters investigate, they are invited to the unveiling of Michele’s final artwork: a living marble statue.
Selenizian Revenge: Fuocermo the red dragon used his magic to spy on Ottavia on the night of the feast, and knows who was responsible for thwarting her. If Ottavia and her agents escaped, they may also be interested in revenge. The characters could encounter them again if the Selenizians attempt to rebuild their spying network in Fiumenze, or in another city.
Working for the Guild: If the characters impressed Giovanni and didn’t betray him to Enrico, he may have further missions for them, ranging from protecting goods moving between cities, to helping him promote his own interests in Fiumenze. As an up-and-coming guildsman, he could be a valuable patron for the characters. He may also want them to mentor Isabella, or to rescue her if she gets herself into trouble.
Star-Crossed Lovers: If the characters met Portia Medilanese, then she may come to them for aid when Cosimo di Allessandro de Follatore goes missing. Is this an attempt by his family to keep them separated, or is something more sinister afoot? Can the characters find out what has happened to him? Alternatively, they may be hired by Cosimo’s family to end the relationship and retrieve an ancestral necklace that he gifted to Portia. Portia accepts that the affair is over, but she has already given the necklace to another lover of hers. The characters will have to unravel a knot of affairs and trysts across the city if they are to retrieve the de Follatore necklace.
Further Leads: If the GM decided to put extra clues leading to other Selenizian plants in Fiumenze in the chest with the real ledger, an immediate follow-up adventure could involve uncovering more spies. Perhaps there is a troubling clue pointing towards a mole in the church, or even amongst the ranks of city hall, too close to comfort for Antonia.

Surnames are relatively uncommon, except among the upper classes. Most people will use the name of an ancestor (e.g. de Bernardo or just Bernardo - 'son of Bernardo'), a location (e.g. di Selenizia or Seleniziano - 'from Selenizia’), their profession (e.g. Ferraio- 'the blacksmith'), or a nickname (e.g. Grande - 'the tall').
