The next morning each person head out on their own course of investigation. Therandil first heads to the curio shop in hopes of getting any information about the Amulet of Nan but can find no reference to it. Far’el heads to the temple of Ioun and speaks with the priests about any religious connection to the amulet and they saw they have never heard of such an artifact. Phi walks over to the doctor’s office looking a bit of history on Captain Morsoc and the doctor explains some local lore about his own troops turning on the captain and murdering him, even to this day the Morsoc are despised by the townsfolk.
Auberry heads to the library and tries to use his imposing presence to get the library staff to tell him about Eker Morsoc but they clam up and refuse to answer any questions. Therandil having seen Auberry barrel his way into the library sneaks in a side entrance hoping to overhear any chatter the attendants in the back of the library might be whispering after the shifter left, but the people here keep quiet mostly talking about how rude the traveler was.
Far’el heads into the library after Auberry grumbles his way out and take a more diplomatic approach which sets the librarian at ease. He reveals the amulet is infused with dark evil magic it had been associated with a dead god. At one time was known as the amulet of the “Undying King” and its last holder Vinish, an Elf, was protecting it.
Phi playing up his appearance as a traveling farmer heads over the sheriff to talk about the town’s missing people. The sheriff explains when some pets missing the town suspicion automatically went to the young Eker, he always has been an outsider and had recently been caught in the library at times he shouldn’t have been. The librarian explained to him that the boy was desperate to get his hands on Draal Keegan, and now that he himself has disappeared the townspeople have convinced themselves he is responsible.
Auberry having cooled off realizing making bold threats might not be the best approach heads to see the sheriff hoping to use his past as a lawman to his advantage but the sheriff realizing that he might have shared too much with the wanderer refuses to touch on the towns problems in their conversation. Therandil goes into the apothecary and tries to ease into a conversation before asking the proprietor if she knew anything about the amulet of nan. As soon as the words come out of his mouth she tells him to move along if he won’t be buying any items. Meanwhile Far’el makes his way into the curio shop and the owner explains when questioned that amulet was being protected by an Elven girl named Vinish and she was killed by Captain Morsoc the Great-Great-Grandfather of Eker.
Phi walks over to the library to get more information about the Draal Keegan; the librarian initially wonders how a traveling farmer came to know about the book. Phi puts him at ease by explaining the sheriff felt secure enough to speak about it he could as well. With his mind put at ease he reveals that the book was a record of a goblins necromancer’s experiments and that currently a page is missing out of it.
Auberry trudged into the temple and inquired about Eker, they freely admit that he is a disturbed boy and that they had tried put the boy on the right path. A few times they even went out to the Morsoc farmland on the outskirts of town bit the Morsoc’s had every right to be mistrustful of townsfolk and they were never allowed inside. Since they boy has disappeared they wanted to go out to the house but their fear of reprisal from the townsfolk, who are to all too happy to see him gone.
The day continues into the evening and the adventures all end up at the same common table again and get to talking revealing the information they gathered. This exchange leads to one new piece of information as Therandil blows out a puff of smoke revealing that Draal Keegan in goblin translates to “dead alive”.
