Skull & Shackles
The town of Beachcomber is made up of mostly halflings, but it is also known for its Lurker District, which boasts a surprising number of liberated half-orcs. Despite its inviting name, Beachcomber is the rowdiest town on Bag Island, and shady characters eventually find their way to this port. An increasingly bold temple to Norgorber skulks at the north edge of the town, and rumors abound of secret tunnels beneath the temple that lead to a vast catacomb network spanning the entirety of Beachcomber’s underbelly. Though the laws decreed by Jolis Raffles extend to the town of Beachcomber and guarantee freedom of religion, most of those who venerate Norgorber still hide their identities. The two priests who maintain the shrine to the evil god, Antal Armskeep and Black Gnarea, are almost open about their faith, and in addition to their duties as stewards to the chapel, they also jointly command the ketch Darkbow. The priest-captains of Norgorber are brutally efficient at hunting and destroying slave ships, and it is said that after a particularly successful raid, one can hear the screams of captured slavers being sacrificed to their god, whom they reverently refer to solely as Blackfingers.
