Rise of the Runelords

Beneath the Glassworks
Sinspawn, Runewells, and a Very Important Bone

- After handing over Tsuto Kaijitsu to the authorities, party decides the tunnel beneath the Glassworks is a more pressing concern than Nualia Tobyn at Thistletop.
- Traveling some distance through the dark tunnel, group comes upon an empty goblin campground in a cave on the coast before continuing on.
- After an attack by a sinspawn, the tunnel ends in some well-maintained ruins.
- Hogorsh finds a statue, which Kestral recognizes as Alaznist, an ancient Thassilonian Runelord. Hogorsh takes the statue’s ornamental weapon, and Kestral takes a rubbing of its book, decorated with a seven-pointed star.
- Take out two more sinspawn in an ancient prison chamber, where Hogorsh finds an extremely important bone.
- Delving further into a cathedral-like room, group meets the quasit mentioned in Tsuto’s journal, who is controlling a cauldron of glowing red liquid. She cuts herself, bleeding into the steaming liquid, which fades considerably as it produces a sinspawn.
- Party takes down sinspawn, a summoned giant centipede, and, after much blasting through her DR, the quasit. However, not knowing what else to do with the cauldron, they leave it untouched for now.
- Other findings include one stairwell leading down and another leading up, both blocked by rubble, and a spherical levitation room with crackling black rage and anger-themed runes, a Lamashtu prayer book, and a dead crow.
- After thoroughly exploring the ruins, group returns to the surface, where they gain more information from Father Zantus about the cauldron: a runewell, an ancient Thassilonian artifact. However, he is unable to say how to deactivate it, its methods lost to the centuries.

Goblins, Glass, and Someone Not Dead

- Group meets Shalelu Andosana, a ranger who explains that the goblins in the region seem to be aligning with a larger power
- Sheriff Hemlock takes a few guards with him to Magnimar to try to get more soldiers, and deputize the party while he’s gone.
- The next morning, group approached by halfling employee of Ameiko Kaijitsu, who explains that Ameiko has disappeared, leaving behind a note written by her brother, Tsuto.
- Note brings party to the Sandpoint Glassworks, where they find a group of goblins and numerous corpses, including that of Lonjiku Kaijitsu, owner of the Glassworks and Ameiko & Tsuto’s father.
- After defeating the goblins, party finds Tsuto in the basement. Taking him down and binding him, his journal reveals much information:
- He is working for Nualia Tobyn, who was thought to have died in the Sandpoint Cathedral fire.
- She has taken the remains of her adopted father and have sacrificed them to Lamashtu, and plans to burn Sandpoint to complete a ritual to turn her into a demon by using the goblins & creatures from below the Glassworks.
- Nualia is currently housed in Thistletop, a well-known goblin hideout.
- The party has two paths to choose: travel to Thistletop to stop Nualia, or explore the lower levels of the factory.
