Skull & Shackles
The town of Queen Bes sits on the cove and is populated by pilgrims who came to the Throne and never left. The port reeve of Queen Bes is Panewa Oala. Like all residents, he is a former pirate and devotee of the goddess, once famous as the captain of the brigantine Desperation, which is reputed to have made off with a month’s worth of pay belonging to the Taldan army, leading the kingdom’s fleet on a grand chase across the Inner Sea. Many arriving at the town stay in either the Rough Blessing Hostel or Mother Tagrette’s Inn as they recuperate between Holy Labors. A permanent resident of the latter is poor Gelrue Palane, a former Pathfinder who was the lone survivor of a disastrous foray into the dungeons of Eel’s Skull on Nalt’s Island. Those seeking information about that mysterious place may attempt to persuade the forever-trembling spellcaster to share his knowledge.
