Identity of the Moneylender, 24 Dracarr 3008 (12-5-2018)
Seeing the minotaur passing through town, the party decides to confront her. She is less than forthcoming with information until the party uses their best words to convince her to divulge a list containing the names and amounts of the people who owe her boss. Heading over to Pa Kobain's house reveals that he borrowed 2,000 gold to bring his dead son back from monster status. The deal was made with the necromancer, and Pa is now a bloodsucker. He runs to his room to avoid bleeding out his grandson and his friends.

A trip to speak with the mayor reveals that his loan of 20,000 was to bribe the chancellor of Northern Dragar for his position in Brasov. The moneylender was set up between the chancellor and the mayor, his name divulged as Jonathon Haldurn who happens to be Felthan Crendraven's uncle. The mayor is broke otherwise and cannot conceive even paying back the loan he secured for his position in Brasov.

A trip to the stable to confront Petr Rasov finds him dead, throat slit, and laying on the floor of his house. The boy Ivan is nowhere to be found. However, Vurcin takes advantage of a chest in the corner finding another copy of the Tome of Shadows and quickly pockets it describing it to the party as "a book of herbs". Felthan is quite convinced that the druid is lying and has a hard time not returning to questioning the mischievous rogue want-to-be about the book he boonswaggled away.

The Van Halfling's took out a loan to cover their parent's funeral costs and to fix up their business after they were killed. Times were tough.

Speaking with the stonemason, John Smith claims that he borrowed money to build a mission somewhere in Northern Dragar for the needy, needing the money for the project. But it turns out he in fact has a gambling and prostitution addiction and the money went to those projects instead.

Everyone the party has spoken to seems to have a legitimate loan so far, with nothing really amiss besides some ill-made choices.

The Moneylender seems evident to be Jonathan Haldurn, the king's chancellor in Northern Dragar. He, through the minotaur Jahn has given out loans to the following people in Brasov. The loans have turned out to be legitimate.

Petr Rasov - 4,000gp (Dead...for now...)
Antony & Anna - 3,000gp
The Amazing Andrew - 6,000gp
Ashmore Glimm - 2,000gp
The VanHalflings - 1,000gp - Funeral cost, fixing up shop, vacation.
Mayor Sneed - 20,000gp
Madam Lisa - 1,500gp
Jezul - 2,000gp - Grows Herbs
Bitsy Hillshire - 1,000gp
John Smith - 3,500gp - Porn/Women like Three-Toed Mary.
Gregor Kobain - 2,000gp - Loan to make his son alive again. Also had to trade his soul for the necromancer to aid him. It seems that Pa Kobain is showing the signs of vampirism.
