Sandpoint Glassworks
A1. Display Room: This room contains a shop where customers can browse the various glassware produced here. Bottles, windowpanes, and glasswork art are the primary contents.
A2. Storeroom: Finished glassware products are stored here.
A3. Cleaning Closet: Cleaning supplies and tools like brooms are kept here.
A4. Storeroom: Tools, clothing for servants, firewood, and other miscellaneous supplies are kept here.
A5. Servant’s Quarters: Lonjiku’s staff of skilled laborers lives on site; the eight workers sleep here.
A6. Dining Room: The staff used this room to relax, eat, and play cards in their off hours.
A7. Washroom: Contains several washtubs for bathing and laundry; the small room nearby is a toilet.
A8. Kitchen: This is where the staff prepared their meals.
A9. Pantry: This room is where food is store.
A10. Storeroom: This room contains several mounds of firewood for the kitchen stove.
A11. Meeting Room: The staff meets here to discuss work schedules or large projects.
A12. Reception: Customers seeking custom glass jobs or looking for business opportunities to export glass meet with a representative here to arrange business.
A13. Office: A smaller office for more private meetings with important customers.
A14. Files: Several cabinets and shelves containing files and contracts with dozens of exporters and businesses from Magnimar, Korvosa, and other local towns fill this room.
A15. Preparation: The primary agents for glassmaking (sand, soda, ash, and lime) are prepared here for use in area A17.
A16. Loading Room: A wheelbarrow sits against a wall here, and shelves on the walls contain additional reagents to create different colors of glass (manganese for clear glass, cobalt for blue, and tin for white glass; untreated glass is green, while too much of any reagent makes black glass). A safe on the floor holds the gold and silver used to make red and yellow glass.
A17. Glassworking Room: A long furnace burns along the southeast wall of this equally long room. Marble tables sit throughout the chamber, used to work raw glass into usable shapes, with nearby wooden tables cluttered with various tools of the trade. The building’s furnace rumbles loudly, causing any Listen checks made in this room to take a –4 penalty. The main furnace burns at the northeast end, a large chamber that utilizes alchemically treated wood that burns with a hot blue light. The workers use this room to melt glass. A creature pushed into the furnace takes 6d6 fire damage per round; fortunately the opening is narrow enough to prevent a Medium creature from being pushed inside too easily. As the furnace’s stone pipes run to the southwest, they reach smaller and progressively cooler furnaces used to keep glassworking projects at the proper temperature; glass shatters if it’s allowed to cool too quickly.
A18. Stairs: This flight of stairs leads down to the beach below.
A19. Underground Storage: Crates and barrels. Used to store sand and other raw materials. Two wheelbarrows sit against the wall. Just east of the stairs up to area A18, a brick wall has been dismantled to reveal an older passageway leading south.
A20. Storage: This room is used to store glassware, windows, and other finished goods.
A21. Storage: This room is used to store glassware, windows, and other finished goods.
A22. Secret Office: Unused for many years.
A23. Tunnel Entrance: The long tunnel leading north from this room winds through the bedrock below Sandpoint.

Tsuto's Notebook about Nualia
   The small, leather-bound booklet contains two dozen parchment pages, most of which are filled with maps of Sandpoint or erotic drawings of a beautiful woman.  The maps each depict different attack plans. The first set shows the attack plans for a group of forty or so goblins— one of these battle maps is circled, and you recognize it as the attack the goblins made on Sandpoint during the festival. Of more pressing concern are the next several pages, which illustrate an assault on Sandpoint by a force of what appears to be several hundred goblins. None of these are circled, and while many are scratched out as if they’ve been rejected, the implications are ominous, someone is planning on attacking Sandpoint in force.  One of the last pages of the book depicts the beautiful woman with demonic hands, bat wings, horns, a forked tail, and fangs.  Three short passages in the notebook are of particular interest.
After the circled battle map
   "The raid went about as planned.  Few Thistletop goblins perished, and we were able to secure Tobyn's casket with ease while the rubes were distracted by the rest.  I can't wait until the real raid.  This town deserves a burning, that's for sure."

After the last of the second batch of maps
  "Ripnugget seems to favor the overwhelming land approach, but I don't think it's the best plan.  We should get the quasit's aid.  Send her freaks up from below via the smugging tunnel in the Glassworks, and then invade from the river and from the Glassworks in smaller but more forward strikes.  The rest, except Bruthazmus agree, and I'm pretty sure the bugbear's just being contrary to annoy me.  My Love's too distracted with the lower chambers to make a decision.  Says that once Malfeshnekor's released and under her command, we won't need to worry about being subtle.  I hope she's right."

Before the last illustration of the woman (with the demonic features)

  "My love seems bent on going through with it - nothing I can say convinces her of her beauty.  She remains obsessed with removing what she calls her "celestial taint" and replacing it with her Mother's grace.  Burning her father's remains at the Thistletop shrine seems to have started the transformation, but I can't say her new hand is pleasing to me.  Hopefully when she offers Sandpoint to Lamashhtu's fire's, her body won't be as hideous.  Maybe I'll luck out.  Succubus are demons too, aren't they?"

The Misgivings
You all heard;
Kasanda and Lorey- You hear a child’s voice, quivering with fear, ask “What’s on your face, mommy?”  You feel like there is something on your face that you must get off, and feel a compulsion to claw it off.

-In the first room with the stuffed manticore Glum thinks he smells burning hair and flesh.  But a quick look around shows no smoke...
Cyralie- In the observatory; Again, you notice the sudden stink of burning flesh.  You suddenly feel uncomfortably hot and believe you have  suddenly caught on fire, you can see and feel it all over you, and that the only way to put the flames out before you burn to death is to throw yourself through the unbroken window and, hopefully, into the sea below. The compulsion is so strong, only your strong will power and training allow your to overcome it.

- You hear what sounds like a brief set of sobs coming from somewhere upstairs.  It's very faint, maybe it was the house settling...
Traver-  As you approach the study to peek inside, you hear the sound of pages rustling, as if a book were being read rapidly inside the room.  Looking inside you don't see anybody with a book, but then you "remember" dozens of memories of expeditions, sea voyages, and travels to exotic locales.  They race through his mind, remnants of "your" journeys before "you" settled down here in Varisia. As the memories build momentum, they become increasingly infused with a sense of bitter disappointment and regret, and "you" become increasingly aware that these are memories that never were, memories of fantastic discoveries "you" could have made had "you" not chosen to settle down with a shrill harpy of a wife.  You have an overwhelming sense of depression and loss.
Traver- You shudder and are suddenly overwhelmed with the conviction that you have just killed the person you love most. Overwhelmed with despair, you felt a compulsion to cut your own throat with the silver-handled dagger you kept in the desk, before the voice returned.

Catessa Fallowfield
- You hear what sounds like a brief set of sobs coming from somewhere upstairs.  It's very faint, maybe it was the house settling...
Kasanda- When you say the portrait she hears a woman’s shrill voice say "What are you up to down in the damp below?”; for several seconds you feel this intense anger against woman and feel a desire to hurt the nearest one, which happens to be yourself.  But you will is strong and you fight this feeling off.
- You hear what sounds like a brief set of sobs coming from somewhere downstairs.  It's very faint, maybe it was the house settling.

Aldern- Upon seeing the portrait you experience a sudden inexplicable wave of sadness.  It sweeps over you in an instant, and is gone just as fast.
Traver and Cyralie- When you see this room you hear the sounds of a child sobbing and suddenly becomes convinced that your parents are trying to kill each other, and that whichever of them survives will be coming to kill him next; you have a vision of your mother(red haired), wielding a torch, and his father, festering with tumors and wielding a long knife, both struggling to kill each other. The vision passes as fast as it occurs, but the mind-numbing terror remains.

Talis Revain
Iesha- Upon seeing the portrait you experience a sudden inexplicable wave of fear.  It sweeps over you in an instant, and is gone just as fast.
- You hear what sounds like a brief set of sobs coming from somewhere downstairs.  It's very faint, maybe it was the house settling.
