Long into the future, in a land far, far away…
Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein continued to investigate the turmoil surrounding the night’s events in the settlement of Osmarren. Gin begrudgingly accepted Eki’s denial of any involvement in Nathairue’s death before heading back to the Sea Inn with Tallalia. There, he met with Irma and convinced her to take on Tallalia as an employee. Gin hugged his travel companion goodbye as he headed out to a meeting with Hannah Truebeard.
Meanwhile, Tamar further explored Osmarren and was stopped by Pern. He confessed that he knew the crab Blarg kept as a pet was a shape shifter. He wondered why such a creature would be after Eki. Tamar bristled at the tiefling’s insinuations and offered Pern no additional information. She divulged her conversation to Rein who urged restraint in alarming the rest of the group about Pern’s suspicions.
Eki met with Dosha Marl at the Toehold to receive his fee for killing Nathairue. Marl handed over a pouch of dust and a pair of boots created by the Circle of Silence in exchange for the ears and tongue of the former priestess.
The companions reunited at the meeting with Truebeard. There, she made her case for the group to help the town rout the Sahuagin that kept raiding Osmarren. They accepted the challenge and headed out to find more information from Merrill. The heroes climbed down the cliffs to the beach below, but Gin lost his grip and fell. Although shaken and wounded, Gin walked it off.
Badell led them west on the beach until they encountered a bubbling pool. Three sahuagin warriors and their priestess emerged from the waters to battle. Gin was quickly struck down by one of the creatures, and Badell soon followed. Eki blasted the priestess into the water, giving his companions time to deal with the warriors. Rein healed Gin, who woke to see Malum scratch out the eyes of one of the sea demons. Tamar finished off the priestess with a final mighty blow.
Needing rest after the ordeal, Eki tended to Badell’s wounds and the companions found crevices in the cliff face to take a much needed rest…
