Legends of Estarra
Former home of the mage Mordecai Malvern, court wizard of Baron Pavelovitch. Mordecai served the Baron until an unfortunate incident involving the Baron’s youngest son, Anstiss. The boy was apprenticed to the mage shortly before both disappeared. Luckily a pack of adventurers was around to investigate, and they discovered the wizard’s twisted experiments on Anstiss, breaking his mind as he was transmuted into a hybrid of human and octopus. They also found a mad old man chained to a bed in the manor, which a nearby journal identified as Mordecai himself. The mad old mage had become convinced that the octopus was the world’s ‘apex animal’ and was determined to elevate humanity through transmutation. Anstiss’ situation proved just how deluded he was.
