Rise of the Runelords
50 miles north east of the city of Magnimar, Sandpoint is the Lost Coast's largest town.
It has a population of 1,240 – 1,116 humans, 37 halflings, 25 elves, 24 dwarves, 13 gnomes, 13 half-elves, and 12 half-orcs.
The town contains an old Thassalonian ruin called the Old Light. It is commonly believed to have once served as a lighthouse millennia ago during the days of the Thassalonian Empire.
The town's location has been occupied longer than is recorded in history, but was formally founded by a group of Chelish descended colonists from Magnimar, known as the Sandpoint Mercantile League. The League was made up of the members of four families: the Kaijitsus, the Valdemars, the Scarnettis, and the Deverins.
More recently, the town was ravaged by a serial killer known as Chopper. He killed 26 people in one month, ending with his committing suicide at an altar to a demon lord. A month afterwards the town was ravaged by a fire that started in the town's chapel. The priest, Ezakien Tobyn, was killed in the fire. His daughter, Nualia, was also believed to have died in the fire, but the party have seen evidence that points to her still being alive.
The town has rebuilt, and now has a new cathedral, dedicated to the six most commonly worshiped deities in the region: Abadar, Desna, Erastil, Gozreh, Sarenrae, and Shelyn.
Ameiko Kaijitsu is the own of the Rusty Dragon Inn. The party have free board and lodging at this inn for as long as they wish.
Aldern Foxglove is a nobleman with estates near Sandpoint. He is very impressed by the party and admires their martial skills. He gave the party horses as an expression of thanks for saving his life during the attack on Sandpoint.
Belor Hemlock is the town's sheriff. He is currently in Maginar seeking additional aid in dealing with the goblin situation.
Kendra Deverin is the mayor of the town. She is a very capable woman who has thanked the party for their aid.Abstalar Zantus is the head priest at the town's new cathedral.
Lonjiku Kaijitsu is the patriach of the Kaijitsu family. The party saw him trying to persuade Ameiko to leave the town and move back to Magnimar until things are safe again.
Nualia Tobyn is the daughter of the former priest. She is commonly believed to have died in the town fire, but the party has evidence that points to her still being alive.
Shalelu Andosana is a ranger based out of Sandpoint. She has brought reports of disturbing changes in the behaviour of the goblins surrounding Sandpoint.
Tsuto Kaijitsu is Ameiko's brother. He works in the family's Glassworks. He appears to have allied himself with the goblins and attempted to kidnap his sister. He attacked the party when they went looking for Ameiko, but managed to escape during the fight.
