Summary: Bazil Rathbone has always been the biggest geek in Half Moon Quay. Recently, he
started acting even stranger. He dresses like a goth and only comes out at night. Is this just
a dorky cry for attention?

- While walking through Half Moon Quay after sunset, the party spots a butcher chasing a gawky customer
out of his store, brandishing a hefty meat cleaver. "I ain't sellin' you blood again, Bazil! I know
you ain't makin' no load o' plywood!" The customer is thin and pale, dressed in a black cotton and
red velvet. He retreats quickly.
- At the town washing well, the characters overhear women gossiping about a strange man in Half Moon Quay.
"He's been odd ever since he was visited by a mysterious stranger", "He fell ill and
nobody saw him for days", "I heard he drinks blood and turns into a bat at night!"
- A reeve offers to hire the party. "My brother-in-law's been causing trouble up in Half Moon Quay.
He's got all them superstitious sailors riled up. Go straighten him out before they run him out of town."
