Welcome to Sandpoint
Besieged by the goblins and bandits of Churlwood on one side and pirates on the other, the port town of Roderic’s Cove submitted to Riddleport 10 years ago. To everyone’s
surprise, both in the town and throughout Varisia, the pirates spared the community, employing it as a shipping and trading port for merchants without the stomach to enter Riddleport.
Captain Jess Gildersleeve serves as port-governor, guaranteeing that the gangs of Riddleport get their cut of the local trade while assuring her own sizable take. In the wake of a recent rash of mysteriously scuttled ships in the harbor, many citizens who remember life before the pirates’ rule have chalked up the sabotage to the ghost of Sir Roderic, the town’s founder and a notorious privateer, while those in power blame rebellion and insurgents.
With tensions rising, many believe it’s only a matter of time before the battle lines are drawn and Roderic’s Cove erupts in flames of revolution.
