Kidnapped! (Episode 1)
- Notable NPCS:
The adventurers followed the clues from the City of Scon to the small town of Alder where they spoke with a local barkeep. The investigation then led them to the wreck of
an ancient Noghiri ship, the Kelanna docked at what was once the fishing village of Kempo. There, they discovered Ferrin being held by Peke and Bolo, agents of Kastelgarde. They had, under the direction of Kasha, kidnapped Ferrin and were holding him there.
It was later revealed that Ferrin had not been kidnapped at all, but had staged the kidnapping as a way to rendezvous with Kasha who was, in fact, his lover.
