Re-discovering Cursed Cannonballs
Salty managed to locate a cannon once belonging to the Burning Blade. He made a deal with Wanda the Weaponsmith of Golden Sands Outpost, and the two dredge it up from the seafloor.
Wanda shortly afterwards became obsessed with reverse-engineering enchanted cannonballs from the magical properties of the cannon, wanting to create a new kind of weapon.
Eventually Wanda's experiments bore fruit as she developed a way to create Cursed Cannonballs. This experimenting however caused several side effects, Salty was used as a test subject and subsequently turned into a Skeletal Parrot, whilst Wanda herself began to lose her flesh.
