The Scales of War
Captain of the Guards, Deceased
Kartenix was the captain of the guards of Brindol. He was captured along with his son and several other townspeople. While in captivity, he was held in the jail cell next to Sertanian, and he was killed after a failed attempt to escape. His body was used in a dark ritual to set up a site of power, meant to power up the undead dwelling in Rivenroar and attract more to the place. Then, his lifeless remains were thrown to the ettercaps who had wandered there through the portal in the castle as food.
The PCs found his remains wrapped in spidersilk just as the ettercaps were about to feast on him. They killed the arachnids and took his body back to Brindol for a proper burial.
