Reward: 100gp/per

Mission Summary

  • On board The Fortunate Son, they took out 4 gnoll scavengers, and 4 undead that were trapped below deck by the gnolls. The undead looked to be crew members.
  • They recovered supplies and a box labeled for the Easton Branch of the Records Guild. It is believed this was the artifact found in the deserts north of Sydund.
  • Supplies were loaded onto the Captain’s row boat and the party headed towards the shores of Storm Island, where they saw a campsite in hopes to find survivors.
  • Once there, it was deserted. They followed tracks that lead to a cave.
  • Inside the cave they heard a voice in their head pleading for help as the source was in pain. In the first room, they found the bodies of more sailors. The cave also was filled with quartz. When some quartz was picked up, large quartz deposits animated and attacked the party.
  • While that was occurring, Moira went further into the cave and discovered more dead sailors, some crushed by boulders, as well as an animated sailor corpse pleading for help. However, once the fighting began, the voice told her to leave and the source appeared as a large rock creature. It advanced on her and she ran.
  • Moira did see a trail of blood leading into a caved-in area. It’s possible survivors are trapped behind the cave-in.
  • The party escaped the cave after a tough battle to regroup. However, another cave-in blocks the entrance.
