Driftwood Town

Scout by Air (DC 15 Perception):
In the middle of the lake is a lashed-together series of broken ships and hastily-constructed rafts, screened from the sun by a ragged blue pavilion tent that is staked haphazardly onto the taller boats. All in all you’d estimate that such a ramshackle settlement could only house 20 people, at most.
DC 25 Knowledge Religion: This settlement matches those used by the most devout adherents of Hanspur, minor god of rivers, freedom, and drowning. His adherents are known as a bipolar lot, being either fierce devotees of nature and the right to an itinerant lifestyle, or unhinged nutbars who “baptize” victims by drowning them to death.

This is a small community of gnome fishermen watched (and washed) over by the wild-eyed but good-hearted Tivvy Bubblebrine, a priestess of Hanspur who has dirty blue hair and muddy brown eyes that are disproportionately large, even for a gnome. Weirdly docile rats run roughshod over the settlement, even allowing themselves to be cooked and eaten when the gnomes are hungry and tire of fish. In her ramshackle shrine constructed from broken ship hulls, Tivvy has a large collection of water-themed magic items for sale, but her prize lies in a hiding spot that only she knows beneath the waters of the lake, and she will only retrieve it on one condition: if the PCs drown a rival PC in the lake (dragging an enemy PC who is in the negatives to the lake and then drowning them suffices) as a glorious sacrifice to Hanspur, she will give them her Vambraces of the Genie. Other than this creepy idiosyncrasy, Tivvy is very friendly, and will provide PCs food and shelter for 1 gold each, or information about adjacent tiles for 50. All proceeds, she immediately throws into the lake, “a gift to the drowned god.”

*Items that Tivvy has for sale/barter, at 75% of normal buy price:
Potions (Water Walk 4, Water Breathing 6), Feather Tokens (anchor 2, swan boat 3), Folding Boats (2), an amulet of natural armor 1 and an amulet of natural armor 2 (1 of each), both of which create the appearance of fine scales on the wearer, a Decanter of Endless Water (1), a set of Mistmail (1), and an Elemental Gem (Water) (1)
