Goodhobbits: A Freeport Adventure

You shouldn’t have gotten out of bed this morning…

It’s been five years since the Freeport Guard was divided between the Sea Lord Guards and the Watch. Between the trustworthy, loyal soldiers dedicated to keep the Sea Lord safe, and the corrupt, untrustworthy troops that are now charged with keeping the very laws they regularly break.

Well, did break. Sometimes break. You get the drift.

And you’re one of Commissioner Holliver’s special squad of investigative Watchmen. You solved that string of murders by that cultist, so the current problem besetting Freeport should be a breeze!

Bilbo Baggins, first Cappo for the Finger of Baggins

Bilbo Baggins, first Cappo for the Finger of Baggins

Yeah, right.

This morning, Her Sea Lordship, Marilise Maeorgan received a surprise this morning by the main gate of her palace. She received a severed ring finger in a pickle jar. Pickled no less. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, except that this looks like the calling card of a continental crime syndicate known as the Finger of Baggins.

To top it off, the Watch Captains for the Eastern District and Scuvytown both up and left their posts, departing for parts unknown a couple of days ago. This has caused a ruckus in the Watch, especially with the rumor that the Finger was in town.

On top of all that, the Halfling Benevolent Association has closed its doors and is turning away all callers. What bee is buzzing around in Mr. Finn’s bonnet? (Mr. Finn is the head of the HBA and reputedly the man behind the crime organization known as the Syndicate. Or so they say.)

Guess what? It’s your job to solve this one and find out what’s going on. Are these events related? Is the Finger in town? Why is Finn hiding? What the Hell is going on? And Holliver wants the report on his desk tomorrow!

Good luck, you’re going to need it.
