Ari 15th 1212i
The heroes return to Fort Shark with their prisoner Nic the Blue Dragon Cultist. They were not able to get much information out of him, but they hand him over to the Wizard’s Tower.
Shank and Tightrope are there to greet/interrogate the group in regards to their last interactions with Havok (who has gone missing). Convinced the group is not part of any plot or that they have no information about the disappearance they are freed to go on with their training.
Some time later, the group is kicking around camp when the meet up with a new bard friend. After seeing that they get along and that the guy has some skills, they invite him along on the next mission.
The next mission comes soon enough when Tightrope calls them in and states that they are going to chase down a lead in Havok’s disappearance and head out to the east coast town near the front lines – Port Helen (sometimes called Port Hell).
During the five days of rough riding, the group encounters a Landshark that they are able to fight off (after it had killed one of the henchmen).
At The Point, a village the group stops along the way to see if they can find any trace of Havok, the stop in the Blue Hen. The group makes a new friend of the proprietor Jack. After chatting a bit over breakfast, the group takes note of the blacksmith and the quiet little village and decides to move on.
They camp about 9 miles outside of Port Helen and Tightrope directs they guys to scout out the town and report back. As they approach the west side of town, they notice that is some fighting going on.
Rufus tries to sneak around the outer buildings to get a better look, but he gets caught flatfooted by some thugs. It looks like some sort of pirate bandit group. The rest of the party engages and manages to fight off half the troops raiding this part of the town.
Picking through the bodies they find the sign of the Jagger Eye, the most famous pirate on the east coast!
