They ask about town and using local knowledge they find out the following :
Riddleport has a long history of mysterious phenomena connected to its infamous Cyphergate Riddle—the long-sought hidden purpose of the stone arch that rises over the harbor. Old accounts tell of strange lights moving in the sky and sounds issuing forth from it without explanation. The manifestation of a shadow in the sky is something new, though. No known magical traditions explain the existence of the hovering shadow, and it does not bear the trappings of any known spell.
The Blot has no known analogy in nature. Birds and flying creatures appear to avoid the air space around the Blot. Although it resembles a dark cloud, the wind seems to have no real affect on it. The movements of the Blot seem to be related to the tides—it is at its largest at high tide and at its smallest at low tide, although periodically, changes in its size seem to occur at random as well. The Blot changes shape and size somewhat, but is generally ovoid in shape and hovers alternately over the harbor and gulf just south of Riddleport. It is dark like a shadow but does allow some light through, albeit dimly, and flying objects can faintly be seen through its obscuring haze. It casts a faint shadow on the ground beneath it depending on the angle of the sun. DC 15 The Blot hangs at a fairly constant altitude of about 2,500 feet and appears to be roughly 250 feet long by 130 feet wide.
The local pathfinder house is ran by Emalia Androsana the local pathfinder captain , the chapter is used very infrequently and maybe you could be the only agents!
But upon arrival she is gone , a local shop keeper says she went in search of something called black fang ? A creature of wild animal , but the rumours are spreading throughout riddleport . He tells them to find the local sheriff for more information .
They find the sherrif in his coral , he is a tall man named Vale Temros and works for the newly elected mayor Groberas!
In the hold of a ship 2 goblins, a tengu and a beat up halfing girl, lie drunken , hungover and feeling very rough, meet :
Dhamukak Half Hand and Pleb – a pair of goblin for the tribe of the black fang , they came to riddleport as part of raid and were mesmerized by the ocean , from then they hung about riddelport looking for a chance to join a ship .
SQaark the Tengu Reaver – an ex river reaver , this tengu has dreamt of a priate life to become rich, go back to his island of birth a hero !!
Rosie Cusswell – halfing bard , why is she here who knows, I fear for her , wrong place at the wrong time lol
Harrigan flays your flesh into sausage skins and has Fishguts fry ye up for breakfast!”
You make your way to the deck , a powerfull man that must be the captian stand in from of you !
“Glad you could join us at last! Welcome to the Wormwood! My thanks for ‘volunteering’ to join my crew. I’m Barnabas Harrigan. That’s Captain Barnabas Harrigan to you, not that you’ll ever need to address me. I have only one rule—don’t speak to me. I like talk, but I don’t like your talk. Follow that rule and we’ll all get along fine. “Oh, and one more thing. Even with you new recruits, we’re still short-handed, and I aim to keep what crew I have. There’ll be a keelhaulin’ for anyone caught killin’ anyone. Mr. Plugg! If you’d be so kind as to make pirates out of these landlubbers, it’ll save me having to put them in the sweatbox for a year and a day before I make pies out of ’em.”
They are each assigned a job and life on the wormwood begins…………..
