Tales of Belegor the Great - Tale Numero... uh... Seven
One day, I was in a pub, drinking and impressing the ladies. Pubs are great, you know? They are incredible places for men like myself to show off how… well, manly we are. Anyway, a beautiful lady came stumbling into the bar.
“Please help me!” she cried. “A troll has taken my friend!”
Of course, being the, above all, just amazing person that I am, I rushed over to her. “What is wrong my lady?” I asked.
“I was taking a leisurely stroll in the mountains with my friend. Suddenly, a troll jumped out from behind a rock and grabbed us both, one in each hand. He brought us both to his cave and tied us both up. I managed to struggle loose while he was gone, but my friend wasn’t able to. I don’t have much to give you, but the troll had a pile of gold. You could take that. Please, save my friend!”
Well, long story short, I trekked up the mountain, killed the troll with its own club, and got both the money and the girl. Then I went back to the pub and stayed there all night, buying everyone rounds. Before I realized it, the money I had earned was gone, and I was completely drunk. Still, that was one of the best nights of my life, even if I can barely remember any of it now.

There is one body
But it is made of many parts.
When we are all
We make one body.
And we become all.
As it is now with this ragtag team I've fallen to
We are now one.
A core with many parts:
Fey magic-user with his whispers of slumberous influence,
His slinky all knowing puss;
Bitter brigand with his sneaking dual blades of death.
And of course education through my own flying feet of grace.
All while grunt manikin weekly phases in and out of our temporal plane-
All is one.

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.

Information you might be interested in....
    [li]Rawrence's activities were unknown by Zon-Kuthon and the country of Nidal until recently. Once they became aware, Zon-Kuthon worked to help the PCs as much as his church could, to the limit of actually betraying Slumbersun and Rawrence.[/li]

    [li]Slumbersun was founded by Rawrence and his brother, Nathan Caligaro. Nidal financed the facility due the unique drugs and alchemical goods that Slumbersun could provide. Once Rawrence's true agenda became known, Zon-Kuthon withdrew its support and Rawrence then allied himself with the Aspis Consortium.[/li]

    [li]Zon-Kuthon is very well aware of what the PCs are doing with the backing of the church of Sarenrae. In fact, Zon-Kuthon is willing to clandestinely support the PCs and probably, other churches that would usually be at odds with Sarenrae, would be willing to help. Nothing is guaranteed though.[/li]

    [li]Currently neither Rawrence nor Nathan are at Slumbersun. Vagnius does not know where they are (and Zon-Kuthon did not inform him), but he has heard rumors that Nathan is in Taldor helping the chaos growing there to expand. Rawrence is in Vudra and rumored to be working with a consortium of rakashas towards aims unknown.[/li]

    [li]Slumbersun is currently under the control of a psychic named Kar Zaweeb, a strange creature that Professor Kramolag brought out of the Darklands and raised up. Kar Zaweeb is obsessed with his dreams and is working on a way to breach the walls between the Dreamlands and Golarion.[/li]

    [li]Professor Kramolag is a female human that Vagnius has not dealt with much. She is of indeterminate blood (though Kramolag says that she was the head researcher for a Runelord Sorshen back in ancient Thassilon. Kramolag is powerful, both in arcane magic and divine magic, but Vagnius doubts she is actually from Thassilon.[/li]

    [li]Professor Kramolag is a researcher in the study of alien religions. She maintains several satellite facilities associated with her primary lab in Nidal. Slumbersun is one such facility.[/li]

    [li]Kramolag has captured and cultivated both alien species and humanoid cultists dedicated to otherworldly powers like the Outer Gods, dissecting and interviewing them to better understand the faiths beyond the stars.[/li]

    [li]Rawrence was last at Slumbersun two weeks ago. He spent a day or so here, spending much of the time cloistered with Kar Zweeb. When Rawrence left he destroyed his quarters, collapsing the tunnels and chambers. Vagnius doubts he will return to Slumbersun.[/li]

    [li]Rawrence will return to Nidal and report to his superiors (nobles as opposed to the church of Zon-Kuthon (though he is loyal to Zon-Kuthon as well, it is just the nobles that pay his bills). After that he will return to the lands of the Rho and tell the Rho about Slumbersun. He suspects that the Rho will then move to destroy Slumbersun.[/li]
