PostSubject: Tsuto's Journal   Wed Jun 02, 2010 12:17 am

Tsuto’s journal likely proves a better source of information. This
small, leather-bound booklet contains two dozen parchment pages,
most of which Tsuto has fi lled with maps of Sandpoint or erotic
drawings of Nualia (who can be recognized as the presumed-dead
adopted daughter of Father Tobyn with a DC 15 Knowledge [local]
check). The maps each depict diff erent attack plans. The fi rst set
shows the attack plans for a group of thirty goblins—one of these
battle maps is circled, and the PCs should recognize it as the attack
the goblins made on Sandpoint at the start of the adventure. Of
more pressing concern are the next several pages, which illustrate
an assault on Sandpoint by a force of what appears to be two
hundred goblins. None of these are circled, and while many are
scratched out as if they’ve been rejected, the implications should
be ominous nonetheless.
Most of the drawings of Nualia do not depict her with her demonic
hand, although one on the last pages of the book depicts her with
demonic hands, bat wings, horns, a forked tail, and fangs.

The raid went about as planned. Few Thistletop goblins perished, and we were able to secure
Tobyn’s casket with ease while the rubes were distracted by the rest. I can’t wait until the real
raid. This town deserves a burning, that’s for sure.

After the last of the second batch of maps:
Ripnugget seems to favor the overwhelming land approach, but I don’t think it’s the best plan.
We should get the quasit’s aid. Send her freaks up from below via the smuggling tunnel in my
father’s Glassworks, and then invade from the river and from the Glassworks in smaller but more
focused strikes. The rest except Bruthazmus agree, and I’m pretty sure the bugbear’s just being
contrary to annoy me. My love’s too distracted with the lower chambers to make a decision. Says
that once Malfeshnekor’s released and under her command, we won’t need to worry about being
subtle. I hope she’s right.

Before the last illustration depicting Nualia as a succubus:
My love seems bent on going through with it—nothing I can say convinces her of her beauty.
She remains obsessed with removing what she calls her ‘celestial taint’ and replacing it with her
Mother’s grace. Burning her father’s remains at the Thistletop shrine seems to have started the
transformation, but I can’t say her new hand is pleasing to me. Hopefully
when she offers Sandpoint to Lamashtu’s fi res, her new body won’t be as
hideous. Maybe I’ll luck out. Succubi are demons too, aren’t they?

OOC: Do we need to report to anyone? in other words, is the regular city guard available, or are we all that is there.

If there is, I want to write 2 quick Notes with all the information we have learned. If there is any candles around, I want to use the wax to seal the notes. I will use one of my keys or key like tool to leave an impression of a Key in the wax seals. I will then head out into the street and hopefully find someone I may know (preferably a kid). Giving the messenger 1 gold coin, I will instruct the messenger to give the first note to whoever is in charge of the city. I will show him/her a second gold coin and tell them that they will receive that 2nd coin when they return with recipient of the second note, Our Cleric friend Antameus.

While we wait for his return, I will (with anyone who is willing to help) search for the Secret Tunnel entrance.

Note to Antameus:

Antameus,
I am sorry to say, that we are in need of your help again. It seems that our Ranger friend's fears are a reality. We are currently gathered at the Glassworks looking into the disappearance of Ameiko and the reappearance of our little green "Friends". If you are available we could certainly use your steady hand and spiritual presence in our mission. If you can help, the messenger will bring you too the Glassworks. If your holy duties keep you from joining us, please send a note back with the messenger.

Your brother in Arms,
A. Verge Bristalbeard

I would also like to make local knowledge check on "Tobyn’s casket" and "Malfeshnekor". If I do not recognize Malfeshnekor, I would like to ask my Party members if they, through their training and Knowledge, know anything about Malfeshnekor.

You know that Father Tobyn was the old Religious leader of Sandpoint. His body was interred in the new cathedral. he dies five years ago when his daughter burned the old cathedral down as an act of revenge...

A foundling raised by Sandpoint’s previous religious
leader, a man named Ezakien Tobyn, Nualia’s childhood was lonely
and sad. Her unearthly beauty made the other children either
jealous or shy, and many of them took to playing cruel jokes on her.
The adults in town weren’t much better—many of the superstitious
Varisians viewed Nualia as blessed by Desna, a sort of “reverse
deformity.” Rumors that her touch or proximity could cure warts
and rashes, that locks of her hair brewed into tea could increase
fertility, and that her voice could drive out evil spirits led to endless
awkward and humiliating requests over the years. Poor Nualia felt
more like a freak than a young girl by the time she came of age, so
when Delek Viskanta, a local Varisian youth, began to court her,
she practically fell into his arms in gratitdue.
Knowing that her father wouldn’t approve of a relationship
with a Varisian (he wanted her to remain pure so that she could
join one of the prestigious Windsong Abbey convents), they kept
the aff air secret. Before long, Nualia realized she was
pregnant. When she told Delek, he revealed his true colors and,
after calling her a slut and a harlot, fl ed Sandpoint rather than
face her father’s wrath. Nualia’s shock quickly turned to rage, yet
she had nowhere to vent her anger. She bottled it up, and when
her father discovered her delicate condition, his reaction to her
indescretions only furthered her shame and anger. He forbade
her to leave the church, lectured her nightly, and made her pray
to Desna for forigeness. In so doing, he unknowingly nurtured
her growing hate.
