Strange Beasts Roam Docks – Harbormaster Killed
by Paul Record, Staff Writer
Palanthas – The City Guard is investigating the death of Kelvin Istarian, Palanthas harbormaster, found early this morning at Istarian's estate, guard authorities said.
Istarian's only remaining son found Istarian dead in bed, eviscerated.
"Our father was a tired old man looking to retire," said one of Istarian's' daughters, "Who would want to kill him?"
According to witnesses, it is unknown whom or what it was that killed Istarian, though rumors speculate that an animal of some kind killed him.
"Strange creatures roam the docks these days," said Crooked Keel, dock bum, " See'em come up at night. Blasphemous things they are."
