How did Two-Toed Tobias become a wheep?

I don’t know why but this week I have just been on a Three Barrel Cove kick.  My last two blogs covered the slayer area in Three Barrel Cove and my last blog covered the quest Ghost of a Chance.  For this particular blog, I plan on focusing on the quest The Legend of Two-toed Tobias.   

The quest giver for the Legend of Two-toed Tobias is Laurent Chastel, located just outside of the Salty Wench Tavern in Three Barrel Cove.  He tells us that there is a legend of a dead pirate captain haunting the Wheeping Cove and that is the source of the wailing we are hearing.  So of course, we agree to investigate.  And boy, Laurent sure is surprised to find out how true the legend is…

However, my main concern about this particular quest about Tobias himself.  It turns out that Tobias is actually a wheep and the Wheeping Cove appears to be guarded by a force of skeleton pirates, both outside and inside the quest.  Now, I haven’t encountered too many wheeps in my questing career and was curious as to how Tobias became a wheep.  Why didn’t he become a skeleton? Or a wight? Or a specter?  So I decided to see what I could find out about wheeps. 

Wheeps are first mentioned for D&D 3.5 in the Libris Mortis source book.  The interesting thing I found about the wheep is that they tend to server stronger undead masters who usually serve as bodyguards and are sometimes sent out on missions.  Wheeps always appear to be in pain and are always crying and sniffing.  Hence, this explains why the name for the Wheeping Cove.  However, this begs the question.  If a wheep is created to serve a more potent undead master…then who does Two-Toed Tobias serve?  Is there something we are missing?  Is there another larger undead force in Three Barrel Cove that is yet to be discovered? 

Maybe we will find out in future updates.  Could be an interesting addition to Three Barrel Cove.
