Uncertain if this has been reported:
There is a trail of blood going from the rotting sheep by the front gate (the statues with water around them), into the town, through the marketplace, around the tavern and ending in another pile of sheep corpses just outside the west entrance to the tavern. I shall proceed with clean-up and questioning of the locals for any sighting of the entity or person responsible for the mess.
P.S. I woke up in my own body today. It seems that the messenger, who was deemed untrustworthy and hastily slain by the Sea Serpent like many messengers that we get, was trustworthy.
