Burnt Offerings

Spending Time in Sandpoint

Small towns need Heroes too!

Over the course of the next seven days the party realized they had become grand heroes in the eyes of the town folk. A boar hunt with Alden Foxglove, Quorthon got to see the special rack in Ven Vinder’s General Store, numerous merchants offered discounts, Amekio offered free room and board for a week, and extended it by another when the party stood up for her when her angry and very drunk father, Lonjiku Kaijitsu confronted her.

While the party went about roaming the town. Traygus was approached by a young child who was obviously upset. Followed quickly by her mother. Upon hearing their tale of a possible goblin hiding in the floorboards under their home, he moved quickly to investigate. Once inside the home he summoned Arrtax. Which quickly resulted in some trashed furniture in the citizens home. He quickly found the body of the father, his arm and should pulled into a hole in the floor boards. After prying up a few floor boards, Traygus caught the attention of the voracious goblin who’s meal he interrupted. A smashed bed later, Traygus and Arrtax dealt the goblin a fatal blow.

5 days after the goblin raid, Shalelu Andosana returned to Sandpoint bring news and information on the local goblin tribes, confirming that some one or something has them, at least for now, unified to a common purpose. Saying " big plans, require big bosses" she recounted what passed for goblin “heroes” of the area, none of which seemed capable of pulling such a thing off, nor providing any reason why the would want to cart of the dead body of Ezakien Tobyn. Sheriff Hemlock and several constables left for Magnimar to inform the authorities there and hopefully get some reinforcements. He asked the party to remain in town, both as a comforting presence to the townsfolk and as protectors in case the goblins returned.

Shalelu’s information:

Birdcruncher
Birdcruncher goblins live in caves along the western edge of the Devil’s Platter, although traditionally these goblins are the least aggressive of the five.

Licktoad
To the south are the Licktoad goblins of the Brinestump Marsh, pests that are excellent swimmers.

Seven Tooth
East are the Seven Tooth goblins of Shank’s Wood,goblins who’ve secured a place for themselves by raiding Sandpoint’s junkyard and rebuilding the stolen refuse into armor and weapons.

Mosswood
Further east are the Mosswood goblins, likely the largest tribe but one traditionally held back by feuding families within their own ranks.

Thistletop
Thistletop goblins, who live on the Nettlewood coast atop a small island that some say holds a passing resemblance to a decapitated head.

On Goblin Heroes: Shalelu notes that goblins generally live short, violent lives. It’s unusual for a single goblin to achieve any real measure of notoriety, but when one does, it’s well-earned.

Currently, five goblins enjoy the status of “hero.”

Big Gugmut is an unusually muscular and tall goblin from Mosswood who, it is said, had a hobgoblin for a mother and a wild boar for a father.

Koruvus was a champion of the Seven Tooth tribe, who was as well known for his short temper as he was for his prized possession—a magic longsword sized for a human that the goblin stubbornly kept as his own (despite the fact that it was too large for him to properly wield). Koruvus vanished several months ago after he supposedly discovered a “secret hideout” in a cave along the cliffs, but the Seven Tooth goblins remain convinced that he’s out there still, a ghost or worse, waiting to murder any goblin who tries to discover his hideout.

Vorka is a notorious goblin cannibal who lives in the Brinestump marsh, a “hero” mostly to goblins other than the Licktoad tribe.

Ripnugget is the current leader of the Thistletop
goblins and controls what the five tribes agree is the best lair.
