Wanting her brother to answer for his crimes, Lavinia asks the PCs to track down Vanthus to try to rescue him from his errant ways. Hot on his trail, they track him to the hidden Kraken’s Cove about a day’s journey by boat down the coast from Sasserine. There he plans to burn and pillage pirate ships of the notorious Crimson Fleet. Upon arriving they find the ships in the cove in flames and many pirates and creatures being afflicted by a disease of savagery and madness. The PCs fight their way through these savage mutants only to discover that Vanthus has fled the scene and Lavinia is now in grave danger. Seething with rage at the attack by Vanthus, the captain, Harliss Javell, sent her first mate to exact revenge upon the Vanderborens. The brutish half-orc first mate along with a large group of bullywug barbarians headed to Sasserine to kill Vanthus’s family and burn his home to the ground. Racing back by taking the last seaworthy ship remaining in the cove, they are able to protect Lavinia and her home from the bullywug attack. In the end, they have the further trust of Lavinia as well as their own ship, the Sea Wyvern.
