Story from Within
Murder at the Sawmill
The Sandpoint Lumber Mill lies on the shore of the Turandarok River. A sizeable crowd has gathered outside by the time the PCs arrive, and groups of nervous-looking town guards stand
at the mill’s entrances. The mill was working last night – Harker and Thorn, the two millers, often worked late into the night, which had become a bone of contention around town as the noisy mill and its infernally creaky log splitter kept neighbors awake.
The guards have already been informed by Sheriff Hemlock of his intent to deputize the PCs, and even if the sheriff doesn’t accompany them to the mill, the guards nod silently and step
aside to allow the PCs entry.
The mill is a well-built wooden structure with very thick walls. The roof is of wooden shingles, and doors are simple timber and unlocked. The mill machinery has been disengaged.
