12/13/1212. night of Darktide.

The party is in the shed, the battle with the moonshine elemental having ended just minutes ago.

  • Jonas, the last living guardsman beginning to regain consciousness due to Jordian's efforts.
    •  He is grateful to the party and tells the story of how he and his fellow townsguard came here to investigate the farm and were ambushed by the Butcher Clan, assisted by the traitor, Bateman. He is still in somewhat of a state of shock having watched friends die at his side and witnessing one being eaten by the hogs. The party will have noted a demonic-faced symbol carved into his chest. He also tells them that some folks in town are being sickened by bad booze… and that Rolf believes that the Butcher Clan are the ones responsible. 
  • Wen Mei and Es'tonza still unconscious, but stable, from the battle.
  • Granny was last seen tied up on her bed.
  • All other members of the family that have been encountered were killed and their heads ripped from the bodies and placed in Odin's bag.
  • The original two mastiffs were last seen stabilized, laying in the front yard.
  • Ripper, the mastiff, was last seen stabilized and in the closet.
  • The rabid raccoons were all killed.
  • The party has Joan's Letter, but has not yet read it.
  • The following items can be found:
    • 24x jugs of Butcher Moonshine
    • Darktide Lantern
    • Platinum Locket
    • Holy Symbol of Ufluns
    • The Seeress’s Amulet.
