A well-deserved rest

In the town of Amanad, famous for its healing waters, strange things start happening and there seems to be more at work than what meets the eye. Can a group of brave adventurers solve the riddle?

Diplomacy: rolle d9+2=11
The barkeep comes out, standing at your table to see what all this fuss is about. He nods to Merisiel as she asks him about the bath house. "Well, it is considered to be the best place here... at least it is the most expensive. Bordo can be pretty arrogant towards other businessmen. But it is one of his ancestors who discovered the source of the water, the spring. They say it comes from deep under the Akrogal mountains." He watches calmly as some servants run out of the bathhouse screaming. "But nothing bad has ever happened here. I wonder what is happening."

Then a group of priests of Phyria, the water godess, march towards the bathhouse, praying loudly and scolding everyone for their heathen and detestable behavior. The group of priests enter the bathhouse.

"Hunh," says Merisiel to the barkeep. "Thanks." She turns and looks at Carver and Fumbus. "I wonder if the water's gone bad, but they don't want to admit it because it would kill their business?" She looks towards the door and the marching priests. "Or maybe the priests are on to something--though I don't see how lax morals can cause rashes. Other diseases, sure, but skin rashes?" She chuckles, then shakes her head. "I kinda get the feeling that if we don't do something to sort this out, no one will." And she looks at the rashes on her skin. "And we may need to find out what the source of these rashes are to have them properly treated."

Fumbus looks down at his itchy flesh, his face not looking happy at what he is seeing or feeling. "I don't relish the thought of trying to travel to the next town feeling like this. Would scratch off half my skin before we got there. Somebody needs to resolve this, by whatever means necessary." He looks outside, back at the bathhouse. "I'm starting to hate this place, but I think you're right. We need to head back and figure out what's going on."
