--The Hammer Book of Tenets
I went to Cutty's place to deliver the scepter, but Cutty wasn't there.
He'd been arrested by the Hammerites. Apparently they didn't approve of his
occupation, and I doubt they approve of mine.
They're holding Cutty in a mining complex carved out of a quarry. The quarry's
flooded, but the Hammers still work the top level mines, and have converted part
of the complex into a penitentiary for those who..."violate" their tenets.
An associate of mine was confined there, and has provided me with a map. It
would be difficult to get in by way of the main gate, but there is another
option. The mines break the surface of a hill south of the quarry. I'll drop
into the mines and head for the prison, which will be found somewhere uphill and
to the north. The Hammers don't venture into these lower mine levels because
they're reputed to be haunted.
