== The Story ==
I’ve come to the conclusion that Bosun will never recover the memories of his time before we started this adventure. Not because of some injury or magic interference but rather because they no longer exist. It’s strange, I know Bosun but at the same time, it feels like it’s not the same Bosun I served with on the Pearl.
I suspect that further pursuit of that line of thinking will lead to only madness.
we spoke more with Snapjaw as we approached his home. He gave us more information about the layout of the area and ranted a bit more regarding the Bullywugs, whom he seems to completely despise.
After several hours of conversation we learned that Bullywug named Farblex rules the bullywugs and that it was he that killed the Lizardfolk shaman Suncaller. We also learned that since Suncallers death the Lizardfolk had become complacent, accepting this as their fate. In spite of this Snapjaw has managed to convince a couple that a revolution is needed to free themselves. Others are interested but there aren’t nearly enough to overthrow the Bullywugs and secure their freedom. We also learned that Rezmir was in the castle.
We managed to eventually convince Snapjaw that we would help him help his people. After some discussion we decided to pay a visit to the Bullywugs, telling Snapjaw that we were gathering information.
It was decided that we would go with a story that someone had stolen the most recent shipment of treasure and we were sent to investigate. Farblex wasn’t there but after Tarien started throwing out accusations the Bullywugs said they would have him met with us to discuss things.
A few hours later we did headed into the Bullywug camp to met Farblex. A meeting that didn’t go well at all. Not only did Tarien’s accusations of theft upset the shaman but Bosun managed to get himself thrown out of the tent. Something told me that we would later pay the price for how things ended.
Finally we decided that since we had no other recourse we would attempt to infiltrate the castle. As we made preparations Elyria reminded us that we had mentioned getting the Lizardfolk on our side. Something we hadn’t yet even attempted.
So, after explaining things to Snapjaw Sven opted to give a speech to the other Lizardfolk to inspire them to rise up along with us. It wasn’t the most inspiring of speeches thought to his credit he did manage to eventually inspire them somewhat.
Using that new found enthusiasm we decided to scope out the castle. With Snapjaw and a few of the other Lizardfolk with us we walked pass the guards, the Bullywugs assuming we were just another group of cultists returning for the evening. Or so we thought.
As we reached the center of the room they moved to attack, we had been set up. It seems word of our accusation and treatment of Farblex has made the rounds already.
Thankfully the fight didn’t take that long and we didn’t have that much trouble. After the fight I decided to head up the stairs in the corner quietly to see if there were reinforcements above.
Fortunately a few were sleeping so we were able to mostly make out way up and take a few down before they managed to assemble some sort of defense. Apparently they were set up to pling arrows at us as we crossed the open causeway into the castle proper.
Now that our way is clear we have taken a moment to re-evaluate our decisions now that we know the Bullywugs are on alert. We haven’t seen any human guards or cultists attacking or heading for us so it’s doubtful Rezmir knows the situation. But we must decide and act quickly before she is alerted to our presence.
