The people of Sandpoint are collecting their dead and healing their wounded as the party investigates how the goblins got into town.
The Northern gates were opened, and the guards dead. A sharp dagger was responsible for the wounds. The broken shaft was discovered buried to the hilt in the ribs of the unfortunate wall guard.
The party remembered seeing four men on guard as they came through earlier that day. When this was mentioned to Sgt Ameiko, she said it was odd, she had only assigned three to the walls and gate. She had no idea who the fourth was, until Elijah laid the dagger before her. She said, as was suspected, that Morgan Suto owned the dagger.
Relaxing for the moment in the Cracktooth Tavern, the party spoke with Ameiko about the attack. She said that Suto had a father and sister in town. There was some conflict within the family, Ameiko thought it had something to do with the sister. The party decided to go talk to the sister, Calyth Suto.
Elijah heard a young child’s voice over the din of the tavern. Quinn’s nephew was eating dinner with his mother and chattering loudly about the monster in his closet. This bothered Elijah, and he spoke to the young boy, leaving the kid in awe and talking excitedly about the tattoos that patterned the ex-monk’s skin.
Elijah returned to the party, concerned. He felt they should look in on the family home – the monster sounded very much like a goblin to him.
With a quick decision, the party went to the Ameiko household first. Quinn unlocked the back door and they made their way through the house.
The boy’s bedroom was sadly occupied. The family dog was killed, a blade spilling his blood over the clean floor. And a man sprawled with head and shoulders in the closet. He was tugged backward, his limbs slack. When Wynter turned the body over, she was horrified to see his face and throat were jagged wet wounds, the flesh eaten out.
The goblin responsible flew from the hole in the closet, attacking Pi as he investigated. A short battle ensued and the party destroyed the foul creature. Quinn wept at the side of her brother, Elijah went to the front door to intercept the wife with her little boy in tow. At a loss when she began weeping, he was relieved when Quinn came to pull the sister away, taking her to her own home. She begged the party to please take the body to the infirmary at the barracks and to meet with her the following morning.
After delivering the body, the party went to the Rusty Dragon, the tavern that Calyth Suto owns. Speaking to a buxom, pretty barmaid, the party were let into the room. A screwed up note was found from Morgan to his sister, begging her to meet him at the Glassworks. He said his father was behind the attacks and he wished help in making sure he faced justice.
The party decided to go to the Glassworks to try to intercept the meeting.
Too late, the party realised the Glassworks was shut down, even though it should have been operating. Stealthily entering the building, the party discovered the workers had been killed and upon opening the doors of the forge, they made a gruesome discovery.
A dozen workers lay in various dismembered parts, limbs and skulls burned in the massive forges. In the centre of the room sat an old man bound to a chair, coated in a thick layer of molten glass. He had died in agony.
Before many more minutes had passed, eight goblins and a half elf archer entered the room, attacking the party. After a fast, brutal battle, the goblins lay dead, and the archer, after wounding Wynter badly, was burnt almost beyond recognition.
A medallion that swung from his neck matched a medallion taken from the neck of the old man.
Wounded and weary, the party must now decide their next action.
Where is the missing girl?
Where will their investigation take them now?
