7 Lowdug confides that he has a notebook with more info, as well as a secret key at his estate.

9 Gob killed Vowrry (a wookie investigator) by stabbing him to death the he fled the ritual scene.
10 Escavary cast some kind of spell that night, on the cultists. “or on me at least” this was right before the summoning.
11 Gob only saw a glimpse of the thing they summoned before he fled a midst the blaster play and explosives. it had “long weird limbs and no head, but mouths, lots of mouths and teeth”
12 Lowdug hid a box in the rear of his estate. It contains the journal of when he was off his meds. Disturbing pictures of the thing that was summoned. A key for a Corusant data vault, and a ancient warding stone stylized like an eye.
13 The crew of the black hole are attacked by thugs. The thugs sport tattoo’s from the wheel, and speak a language not anything familiar to anyone.
