Further investigation of the murder

Persons of Interest:

Skreed Gorwillow, half-orc. As yet unencountered. But we had a lead on his name from Easy Mike. After being ambushed outside of town, the mercenary Breck copped to being hired by Skreed.
Breck, human mercenary. Good with a bow, much to our ouchies. Part of the Black Rats mercenary company. Hired by Skreed to attack our party on the way to the Plague House, when assassinating us in our room at Ramblehouse proved too risky with the posted guards.
Will & Talc, trusted guards assigned to our room at Ramblehouse by Carson for the day shift.
Shem & Burt, guards assigned to us by Carson for the night shift.
Cruthers, guard in the north tower near Ramblehouse. Trusted ally in town.
Othdan, town youth. Found locked away in the Plague House. Freed him.

Unknown Items

Daktani, dead half-orc cleric in Plague House. Unholy symbol to the orc god Nulgreth.
Melira, still unknown entity from Part 1.
White Swords, unknown graffiti authors all over town. Skreed, perhaps?
Urusul, still missing.
Spoke to Brinya about finding Rodrik’s Hopeknife in the Plague House. He was laid to rest.
Flood troll killed! Still need answers about what’s happening in town… what secrets were worth killing for??
Day 2 pass phrase for guards: Q: Rainy, isn’t it? A: Yes. My boots be squishin’.

The Investigation
The what's & who's.

Quick notes about what we do know.

Persons of Interest:
Rodrik Grath. Our victim. Patrol Captain of the Watch. Found in his room, dead by apparent suicide by his own Hopeknife (We now know it wasn’t; the wrist wounds were not sufficient).
Kurst Grath, brother of Rodrik. Patrol Captain of the watch. Asked for our help to solve the mystery.
Ruby, the Chief Defender’s Halgra’s daughter. Newly had her Hopeknife ceremony.
Carson, Ruby’s protector. Seems to be some sort of secret service for the family.
Dai Durthact, friend of the party. Takes a beating and then gives it back.
Cham, innkeeper for the Ramblehouse. A bit racist towards half-orcs (which is unusual for the town. They are generally sympathetic towards the half-breeds).
Sid, nighttime desk clerk at Ramblehouse.
Brinya Kelver, half-orc weaver. Possible amorous companion of the deceased.
Easy Mike, town snoop. Information broker. Now dead after asking too many questions (on our behalf). Poor Easy Mike!
Omast, Roderick’s good friend. Member of the Watch.
Katrezra, until recently a patient at Sanctuary. Half-orc. Known to have disturbing visions. Found by our group to have been holed up in Morninghawk’s Fine Steel.
Urusul, smith at Morninghawk’s. Commissioned to craft a new Hopeknife for Rodrik. Status: Missing
Tyari Varvatos, young priestess of Iomedae at Sanctuary. Younger sister of the Second Sword Knight of Sancta Iomedae in Vigil. Acquaintance (maybe even friend) of Katrezra.
Brantos Calderon, paladin of Iomedae, and companion to Tyari.

Melira, a as-of-yet unknown indivual. A name on a note found in the room adjacent to Rodrik’s in Ramblehouse.

We still haven’t talked any more to Sid. We haven’t found Brinya. Urusul is missing.
And we don’t know anything yet about this “White Swords” graffiti all over town.
Note found in Rodrik’s room under the bed.

This note was found in the desk of the room adjacent to Rodrik’s in Ramblehouse.

And, finally, Rodrik’s journal. Given to us by Katrezra.
