Moonday, Rova 23, 4707
The party wakes up on Moonday ready to figure out what is next, deciding first to sell of some of the gear that they found while defending against the goblins. On their way to the shops, a beautiful woman named Shayliss Vinder approaches the group, saying that she is in need of assistance. Kirion immediately catches her eye and she directs most of the conversation at him. She appears to have a rat problem and her father is too busy dealing with her “loose” sister Katrine who is shacking up with one of the workers at the lumber mill. When a couple of the other party members mention that they could come along and help, she insists that it’s not big enough for all the party members, just big enough for one, Kirion. When Kirion insists that he will not go alone, she decides that she no longer needs his help and storms off, leaving the party confused.
After wheeling and dealing at the local armory, Savah’s Armory, owned by Savah Bevanky, the party runs into the Sheriff, who oddly enough seemed to be out looking for them. He takes the time for more formal introductions and then thanks you for your service to the community. Of course, this is not the only reason he has come to see you. It appears that there was a disturbance at an important vault, the grave of Father Ezakien Tobyn, in the Sandpoint Boneryard. Although he is sure that it really is nothing, Father Zantus has asked him to check it out. The Sheriff figured since you all seemed to be fairly adept and already a bit engaged in their current situation he would like to have you all along. Upon deeper investigation Kirion notices goblin and humanoid footprints. Once they enter the vault a bigger surprise awaits, two animated skeletons! After dispatching them quickly, they find a robe of bones that seems to have been used up. Also and more importantly, they notice that the remains of Ezakien have been taken. The Sheriff can offer no ready response as to why they would steal the remains of the town’s previous priest, but the party quickly surmises that it seems the raid may have been a distraction to cover up whatever this is.
