As our story begins, our characters are at the Doomed Crossroads, a tavern in the swamp village of Nawlins. They’ve heard about a series of grisly murders in the town that have involved bodies found that had been flayed alive and their eyes burnt out, and they are trying to find out more.
There is an agent of the Lord of the Stars at the local Papa Capa temple and he’s left an (invisible) Yellow Sign outside, which Zzyzx notices. She places one outside the door at the Doomed Crossroads as well.
Questions for next time:
What is each character’s history with Nawlins?
What have they heard about the murders?
