Damned Inheritance (Bard Crispin stories) by Adam Kisiel

When a chance presents itself to seize a vast fortune, Crispin the bard does not hesitate for a moment. However, it soon becomes clear that with great money comes great trouble, which the minstrel will have to face with a little help from his friends: the reasonable wizard Amerwend, the tough dwarf Marcus and the jolly halfling Bibble.

"Damned Inheritance" is the second story in a fantasy series about the misadventures of Crispin, the careless troubadour.
