Halfling Hamlet of Morton-under-Hill
- The original group comprised of two humans, halfling, and a dwarf. During the “interview” process, of the humans proved to be less than appreciative of his rescue. Nitzer and his men made him more “pliable” by placing a stone in his head. The human convulsed, and slowly morphed into a dwarf… The others then noticed they all had scars on their heads as well… were they made pliable before?
- Found some books with unknown writing. These were turned over to Nitzer…
- Found a donut-like black stone made of unknown material. It was surmised that a gem was pried out of the middle. Perhaps a scrying device of sorts?
- Discovered a strange glyph painted on the floor… Glyph
- Found a disturbing statue – seemingly made of the same stuff as the “donut”… The Statue. The statue was in the center of a desolate clearing in the forest. The statue was found to have a single blue eye… a real eye.
- Discovered the “Black Dog” was not a dog, but rather the nom de guerre of the inn’s proprietor, Pawls – the one-eyed halfling. Pawls apparently followed the party to the clearing, and attacked them as they popped the eye of the statue. Upon defeating Pawls, the party discovered he had a black stone in his empty eye-socket. When the stone was removed, the statue “howled/screamed”, and Pawls body began to rot – unnaturally. Why did Pawls wait to attack the party at the clearing?
- After retrieving the stone, the Party headed back to the Hamlet… but it was not there, the forest continued. It was as if the Hamlet was never there…
