One Eyed Serpent's Skull
Captain Kovak's Note
A scrap of leather with a note of blood.
I am the Captain Alizandru Kovack, betrayer of my crew and destroyer of the good ship Jennivere. Hell would be a welcome escape from what hideous unlife looms before me, but it is no less than I deserve. That I was enslaved mind and body to a serpentine demon who wore a Varisian’s skin does not pardon me. It is my weakness that led the Jennivere, her crew, and her passengers to their doom. That Ieana has abandoned me here is nothing more than the fate I deserve. I do not beg forgiveness, but I despair that she lives still, and that she seeks something dire on this forsaken isle – she seemed particularly interested in Red Mountain. If you read this and you be a kind soul, seek out what I have become and destroy me, and then seek out Ieana and slay her as well. And to those whose lives I have helped destroy, I can only apologize from this, my dark cradle and darker grave.
The note was discovered outside a bone cage that presumably held the Captain as he slowly, agonizingly transformed into a ghoul in deep caverns below the Thrunefang Cannibals’ village. It was written on a scrap torn from the Captain’s leather armor apparently in his own blood.
