It all started on a typical Thursday afternoon.
Rodmear, Wendell, Kathy, Glaustir, Brad, Ernie, Hannah
Tony, Wendell and Hannah were hanging out in the Rusty Dragon. Rodmear talked to Bart, the bartender, who told Rodmearthat he was concerned about Ameiko Kaijitsu, the owner. She had gone with Shalelu to hunt spiders in Egan’s Wood three days ago and had not returned. Rodmear and Wendell had just agreed to go look for her when the city alarm bell rang.
The party gathered at the location of the alarm. An unidentified man had been brutally murdered, his body torn in several pieces. On the body Hannah discovered a piece of distinctive pink cloth. They went to a tailor shop owned by Carlene Olson, a woman for whom Wendell had worked as a mercenary. She went in the back room to get her list of customers. While she was gone, they found the cloak that the piece of clothing had been torn from. Searching the shop, they found that Carlene had run off and that she had a small cell with manacles below.
They chased Carlene down. She confessed to being a werewolf, but denied having killed anyone. They took her to the sheriff, Belor Hemlock. The sheriff summoned Abstalar Zantus and had a conversation that Hannah stealthily overheard. Belor wanted to just kill her, but Abstalar insisted that she could be cured with a scroll that could be retrieved from Nevaroton.
Later that evening, the alarm bells rang again. A ship crashed into the dock. Skeletons and zombies climbed out of the ship and began to attack everyone in reach. The party destroyed the invaders with little damage to themselves. Among the junk that fell out of the ship was a distinctive pitchfork owned by a nearby farmer, Errol Tarpia. When the sheriff arrived, he ordered them to leave the next morning to investigate.
