The crew of the Winged Lion were offered protection from the pirates of Riddleport by one of Gaston Cromarcky’s underlings, Hugo Cussler. They could not afford to pay the hefty price and instead were offered to obtain a stolen ornament of great importance.
The crew headed off towards The Dark Cave where they were told the item should be found, fighting off a goblin raiding ship along the way. The entrance of the Dark Cave was guarded by 3 merfolk who were bluffed into letting the crew pass before they heard the noise of a predator at the entrance of the cave and they fled into the water.
A water elemental was blown out of what seemed to be a pool of water in the centre of the cavern by a bomb thrown by the Shipwright in Cutty Flam. The end of the cave had a raised section with what looked like a blue goblin with wings. This beast was trouble for the crew as the room filled with toxic gas. The shipwright was knocked unconscious and defeating the beast was left up to the rest of the crew. The ornament was rigged to a trap and taking the item resulted in a boulder falling and chased them out of the cave, crushing all the merfolk in the process.
On the journey back to Riddleport a stray octopus mysteriously found it’s way aboard the ship and attacked Lynal. The octopus was quickly put down by the captain. Once back in Riddleport instead of taking the ornament back to Hugo the crew learnt that Elias Tammerhawk was interested in acquiring the ornament. Elias had a much better offer than Hugo so the party took his offer or 2000 gold, and the Riddleport flag which was a different colour.
