Paper Mill near Harmuth:
We help the workers at the papermill move trees into the mill. The foreman, Damaris, asks if any of us could look at one of the milling machines as it was inoperable. I give it a look, and discover one of the gears is broken. I dig through some spare fix-it parts, and find a couple of gears that’ll get the machine going. Once operational, I notice in the spare parts box a few cyphers and ask if I can take them off of his hands. He obliges, and points us to Kegan Rilid’s house boat while we identify our new loot.
We pull our boats ashore, and find a place to stay. We decide on a place called the Tentacle’s Rest. They offer cheap room, drink, and eats. Next we head to the Jewel Box.
The Jewel Box is a bar and restaurant. We ask around for Kegan. Apparently, he’s pretty weird. He spends his days with tubes in his ears listening to the water.
D’jon buys a round, and the barkeep asks why we’re going to see Kegan. We tell him we’re looking for the Garahlon, an underwater sea creature. The barkeep tells us about the Sea of Secrets. It’s far away along the coast. She points us to Kegans house, and we head towards it.
Kegan tells us that the Garahlon is a type of goo that lives on the sea floor. Kegan points out that a huge storm is brewing. On the floor of the Sea of Secrets are spiders near thermal vents that could point us to the Garahlon. Kegan invites us to his houseboat. We decide to get an 8 pack of beer before we head to his house.
In his house, we drink beer, and look though his maps of the sea floor. He points out the hydro-thermal vents in the Sea of Secrets. He also, points out that the storm activity seems to be coming from the ocean and not the sky. He tells us about a tracking device that was recently stolen. He directs us to Elstow to gear up for underwater adventure.
Zsafs and I do some window shopping for some watercraft and gear. The rest of the party tries to track down a number of stolen goods in order to curry favor with Kegan and Lady Death Rally 4.
Jayvon finds the stolen loot in a birds nest. We then head to an appraiser by the name Ec’co. He’s a dick. But hopefully he’s got deep pockets. He offers us 100 shins for Starlasets head dress, but we decline the offer and head to Death Rally IV to return her rings.
