Burnt Offerings Pathfinder
As Sandpoint recovers from the attack and buries its (thankfully
few) dead, the citizens do their best to get on with their lives. The
cathedral is consecrated the next day during a much more subdued
and indoor ceremony, but by the end of the week, the goblin attack
is remembered mostly with chuckles. Now that the terror of the
raid is over, memories of goblins accidentally lighting themselves
on fire, getting stepped on by horses, or drowning in rain barrels
that were only half full in the fi rst place render memories of the
raid in an almost comical light. But one thing the locals haven’t
forgotten is their new heroes.
Unless a PC takes extra care to hide it, his name soon becomes
household knowledge. Everywhere the PCs go in town, locals welcome them.
A simple walk down Main Street might result in
local baker Alma Avertin charging out into the street and press
a fresh-baked loaf of bread into the arms of the skinniest PC
with worried comments that he must be starving. A visit to the
Hagfish brings an immediate round of cheers, applause, and a
round of drinks on the house (and likely a challenge to drink
from Norah’s tank). A trip to the Sandpoint Theater might have
Cyrdak Drokkus trying to talk the PC with the highest Charisma
into auditioning for his new play. A stop at Savah’s Armory
is greeted with an instantaneous offer of 20% off anything in
stock. Certainly not everyone in Sandpoint wants to be the PCs’
new best friend, but they should feel more than welcome.
The events detailed in this part can happen in any order—feel
free to mix things up as you wish, or to fi t logically with the PCs’
actions in town. These events can even continue to occur after
the PCs have turned their attention to the Catacombs of Wrath,
Thistletop, or even well into the next adventure.
