Journal

Objectives

  • A Shrewd Proposition
    • Captain Furrante has a wealthy contact who has business dealings with the slavers of Crookspur. However, recent troubles with the locals have affected their trade routes. This contact is willing to owe Furrante a political favor for assisting the slavers. However, as slaving is a crime within the Príncipi, Furrante has asked me to discretely smooth this problem in his stead.
    • (Alternate) Captain Furrante was hired by Director Castol to take care of the problem facing Castol's business interests at Crookspur. When I spoke with Furrante at Dunnage, he offered me the job in exchange for further reward from the Príncipi. 
  • Deal with the slavers of Crookspur
    • I've docked at Crookspur's slaver port to begin assessing its situation. Something tells me that this place holds more than it shows.
    • Master Kua's ships are being assaulted by the Wahaki, which is beginning to affect his business. He has asked me to travel to Ori o Koīki and kill the tribe's leaders.
    • Auctioneer Marcca has allowed me to enter the fort at Crookspur to meet with the master.
    • The ogre taskmaster in the dungeon of Crookspur holds the keys to the slaves' cells.
    • I've found a group of Wahaki slaves in the dungeon under Crookspur's fort. They seem eager to revolt against the slavers.
    • It looks like there's a way in and out of the slaver fort in its lowest levels, an underwater tunnel into the sea.
    • According to Seafol, the slavers of Crookspur are breaking the law by trading natives of the Deadfire.
    • A spy of Aeldys', Seafol, wants me to disrupt the slaver operations at Crookspur by any means necessary.
  • Speak with Captain Aeldys
    • I've dealt a blow to the Crookspur slave operation, as Aeldys asked. It's time to meet her at Fort Deadlight to deliver the news.
    • Headmaster Kua won't pose a threat to the people of the Deadfire anymore but his captives remain locked in Crookspur's dungeons.
    • The slave cells of Crookspur are empty. It appears that the captives have already been sold - or worse.
  • Return to Captain Furrante in Dunnage
    • Furrante will want to know that I've solved the slavers' problems at Crookspur. Their business can resume shortly which will please his influential contact.
  • Sail to the slaver port in Crookspur
    • Furrante has asked me to travel to Crookspur and speak with Master Kua, the leader of a group of slavers that operate on the island.
    • Aeldys has a contact on the island of Crookspur.
    • Aeldys has sent a letter asking me to meet her at Fort Deadlight.
  • Speak with Captain Aeldys
    • I dealt with the slavers at Crookspur, against the interests of Furrante. Perhaps Aeldys will take pleasure in this reversal. I should see her at Fort Deadlight.
    • Headmaster Kua won't pose a threat to the people of the Deadfire anymore but his captives remain locked in Crookspur's dungeons.
    • The slave cells of Crookspur are empty. It appears that the captives have already been sold - or worse.

 

End States

  • I freed the slaves being held on the island and turned over the slavers' ship to them. I convinced them to seek out Captain Aeldys at Fort Deadlight to join the Príncipi.
