A Sea of Troubles
The Mandible do the most trade in Skullport, and they are mostly human. Their leader, known only as The Mandible, carries a magic sword called Dragon’s Tooth that was recovered from the ruins of Skullport many years ago. The sword is what gives him the power to speak as a representative – if the sword is taken, whether he dies or not, all swear allegiance to the new sword holder. They have a large red slaad named Skinsk that acts as their “secret weapon” – he’s not a secret, but he’s enough to keep the others intimidated. The Mandible convinces him to work with them by providing a portion of the humanoids captured in his slave trade to be infested and birth new slaadi (plural of slaad). Dissenters within the group meet the same fate. Their headquarters are on Skull Island.
