Journal entry by Radid:
Even though my plans for the Skin Saw cult in Magnimar were derailed by the Heroes of Sandpoint the end result was close enough to satisfy me. The cult was dismantled and a certain political figure was not implicated… The city remains unperturbed and stability was maintained. And without their intervention we may never have learned of the outside influences involved with this cults activities.
Now due to the fear of our Lord-Mayor, I have been assigned the task of traveling with the adventurers to root out the source of this evil. So we have taken a river boat up to Turtleback Ferry. Upon arrival we were quick to spot many villagers sporting Thassilonian sigils tattooed upon their bodies. Further investigation discovered that these were marks of membership to a casino barge which had recently berthed near the town. We decided to investigate the barge, which was some what of a complicated issue for the rest of the group as the barge had sunk nearly a month prior to our arrival… Upon inspection we discovered that the vessel had been purposefully scuttled after having all valuable items and personnel removed.
During our exit from the sunken barge we were attacked by a huge fish which we believe to be a local legend that we hard about in town. Luckily our brave battle mage figured out the monsters weakness. Bravely enticing the beast to engulf him through some strange magic he then proceeded to roast the creature from within! A heroic feat if I ever saw one! Now we are making our way back to town with the dead beast in tow. I think that a fish cook/meet and greet are in order… I’m interested to find out who among the town were on the vessel when it was sunk, as this could point out who may have gained from the murders….
