The Watcher of the Mists
The residents of Sandpoint refer to a series of terrible events that occurred in 4702 AR as the “Late Unpleasantness.” These events were:
- A series of serial murders committed by a figure that was called ‘The Chopper’. Before he was caught and killed by Belor Hemlock, The Chopper killed 25 people.
- A fire that started in the town chapel, and eventually burned down a fifth of town. The fire broke out just two weeks after The Chopper was stopped. The fire killed 15 people, including the town priest Brother Tobyn and his daughter Nualia.
The events of the Late Unpleasantness happened about five years before the start of the campaign.
