The Castaways found their way to Eastwick, where they entertained a job offer from Lieutenant Sebastian Carver, right-hand man to the local Magistrate. Carver offered them a letter of marque as privateers in return for wiping out a local cult that had been causing trouble for the magistrate. As they considered the offer, the Castaways were approached by an employee of the local Madame, Sweet Mags, who directed them to the Iron and Silk, a wrecked pirate ship which had been converted into a brothel.
Mags offered to help the group break into ‘s private villa, where they were promised riches, in return for rescuing her former employee and the Magistrate’s current wife Talia from the mysterious fate that had met the man’s previous six wives. Before they embarked on Mags’s mission, they made contact with the Rockfang Clan, the cult that Carver had asked them to wipe out, and arranged passage off of the island for them and their god in return for their support.
After being disguised by Mags, the Castaways took a carriage to the Magistrate’s villa, where they were presented to the Magistrate himself so that he could select his entertainment for the night. The Magistrate made the mistake of selecting Althea, who promptly drugged and butchered him. The crew walked off with as many valuables as they could carry and the captive wife, but not before disturbing something that had been living in a well hidden deep below the Magistrate’s private chambers.
