The party continues to make their way towards the abandoned village of Green Shelf in hopes of gathering salvage and supplies. When they arrive in the village they discover that the entire population has seemingly disappeared in a hurry. Further investigation revealed that village seems to be decaying at an accelerated rate, with wood, food and cloth products all showing signs of years of rot and decay instead of just a few months. In several of the buildings strange shrines to some unknown god were set up that gave the party a sense of unease when examined.
Discovery of a priest journal in the village’s temple tells a tale of a strange idol being brought back to town by a boy named Uri. Uri apparently divided the town with his preaching of an true god located in the sea cave to the north and a number of cases of violence broke out. The journal ends with its author, Father Calib, going to talk to the mob to give up these evil ways but apparently didn’t go well for him since he was strung up in his own temple.
The party decided to try to find some answers and travels to the sea cave. Inside they get into a couple fights with cultists who appear to be transforming into some sort of grotesque fish type monsters. They also discover several mindless individuals who only seems to react to physical stimuli. Cerlyn discovers a hidden passage in the back of the cave and they enter an ancient chamber just in time to witness the end of a gruesome ritual. A swollen and large figure drags a knife across the belly of a human and pushes him into pit where he silently tumbles out of sight.
