Walked past a few people on the way to town that avoided me and my company. A man and his teenage boy came up behind us heading towards town. He helped us carry the people in town. Shad was his name, his boy was named Jedden.
Shad told me of “Frost stone tower” An abandoned tower that used to belong to a mean overlord. rumors of him being a caster.
Supposedly some people killed the wizard and cleaned up the tower long ago. Shelleb was the wizards name back then.
Rumors are some kind of monster people have moved into the old tower. Humans with the blood of demons and devils. Tales of people disappearing from nearby towns rumors Shelleb is back at his old work again. Rumor of a labyrinth below the tower where he committed these atrocities. He told me the location of the tower. Overlooking a burned village Kha Teak, they were loyal to the wizard and were killed for it after he was slain.
The teenage boy says he thinks the family I saved is the Basker family. The old man offered to take in the 2 kids, I gave him 27 gold to care for them as best he could, he gave us directions to his home and his last name: Colby.
We got a room to rest for the night. I had dreams that night and Sienna awoke me, Dreaming about Lance. Sienna and I had an arguement about veloral leaving and she flipped and said something stupid.
We moved on to the keep dungeon area to talk to someone about the mongrelman captive. We will be speaking with the assistant warden about the captive, named Solek. Solek is unwilling to give me the mongrelman, he wants me to do a favor for him. He made me promise what I say here wont get outside the room.
Wealthy mans son was arrested for murdering some people, son is insane. Solek had another man killed in his stead, and got bribed to let him go. The man killed his own father after and escaped, then murdered a hooker, he carves a sign in their chests when he kills them. Mans name is Dorvis Chensen. dorvis is wearing his father signet ring. Ring has 2 owls resting on a sword. I told Solek that word of this wont get out, but if I catch him slip up again, I will bring him to justice.
Solek gave me a lead the hookers sister is named Debriah. Hooker that was killed is called Selena. Last name Crosspoint. Sister works at spiderleg tavern, she owns it. Married to a guy named Brant.
Explained the situation to Valorel and Sienna. We made our way to the tavern. Asked Debriah to sit and talk with us while we drank.
There was a armored/armed man in the corner looking all sketchy. He spoke to me with a catchphrase but i didn’t know what he meant. A man in the same armor and sword as me came in and spoke with the sketchy man.
I told Debriah why we are here. She described the man, 5"10’ good looking, curly blonde hair, blue eyes, perfect white teeth, 24 years old, dressed in nice clothing, ripped and tattered with blood spots on them. One of his eyes twitched. One of the drunks came into her tavern and told her that he saw where the man went, to a cellar underneath a nearby shop. He is wearing debriahs sisters necklace.
The two men talking screamed about breaking a deal, scorpian (the little guy) cheated the big guy and ran out on him. We chased after them to make sure the big guy didnt kill the little guy. Nothing came of it.
Odren told me what he knew about the murderer, the cellar he hangs in is an old pottery shop. Colven pottery. Rumor of a Tiefling in town, that heads out to frost stone tower. He shows up just before shops close and buys times.
Told Sienna how much I admire her and trust her. I sent Valorel off to scout the area, Loke came and told us that the guards were following Valorel, we went to help him but he had gotten the best of the guards and slipped away from him. He came back and told us about the area, theres a trip wire poorly made.
valorel took care of 2 traps, and a lock on the door as we made our way down to the cellar.Kid begged for his life and said he didnt do it. I killed him and we searched his body.

Gave the sister the necklace, gave Solek the ring. He offered me a “favor” if I take down the Mongoose.
The shithead guard tried to stop me at the gate, I presented the paper and he had to allow me to pass.
As we left town there was a small encampment with some young kids. There was a banner of a man with a chain around his neck. I purchased the 4 slaves before they were nuetered.
I cut them all free and asked them how they were enslaved. Valorel stole the belt pouch back from the man by feigning unconsciousness.
The slavers came back further down the road and wanted to search us. Valerol feigned a disease and offered for them to search him.
