I’d say I can’t believe it, but this is exactly the kind of crap Ashurta would pull. Turns out he left the island right after starting this little game. Seems he was using Lekem for recruiting and figured he’d gotten everyone he was going to. As much as I hate the withered bastard, that was pretty clever of him. He’s more than just a mage.
Anyway, once Silas and I woke up we set out for Rustview to ruin his day. After all, if he’s not going to play by his own rules there’s no reason we should either. After leaving, we tripped some sort of magical trap that summonned a giant tentacle monster. Looking back, that might have been a Skyviathan—those are some nasty critters. Cochraine blew it to pieces and we continued on our way. You and I both know Myrskyta packs some serious firepower.
