Where can I find more info on Dagon? I'm a long way off from running this, but once I get there, I feel like I'm going to need to know a little more about the faith. For example,
Caleb Voltiaro ... vizier of the Order, currently occupies this room, instructing a cultist in the finer points of Dagon’s worship.
What could that entail?

A lot of careful pronunciation, I should think...
"Nonono -- it's 'eeeee-ahhhh eeeee-ahhhh,' NOT eye-ayyyyyy eye-ayyyyyy!!!"
"Fuh-- fuh-- fuh-thay-ginnn?"

I'm curious - what guidelines do you use for which sources you are willing to draw on for material?
It just seems like with so many clerics of Dagon, squeezing in a Demoniac (PrC from Book of the Damned 1) would have been fitting.
The guidelines are basically: Use what you want and what makes sense for the adventure. That said, when we use stuff outside of the core rules, we tend to reprint a lot of the powers and stuff, and in the case of doing a demoniac of Dagon, we would have had to do just that, making that particular character's stat block longer, which would have forced an equal amount of cutting of content elsewhere.
But the main reason we didn't use the demoniac class was that it just didn't fit the flavor of any of the NPCs in the adventure. A demoniac is someone who specifically lets themselves be possessed by a demon, after all, and that's not really in line with the themes of the adventure.

For Pathfinder, the best place to go would be "Lords of Chaos," but there's a little bit more information about his worship in the Inner Sea World Guide.
If you want a LOT of info, you could always pick up issue #349 of Dragon magazine. There's a giant article about Dagon in there. It's for D&D, but it's basically the same Dagon so a lot of that material works fine.
Beyond that, reading Lovecraft stories, particularly "The Shadow Over Innsmouth," is a great place to go to learn more about Dagon.

Sorry for the necromancy, however...Ijust had to post about this wierd little happenstance.
I *finally* got my copy of this module:
I heard my daughter talking to someone at the door and came out to see. The Truck was driving away and she had a package in her hand. I went "Yay, that's my next Carrion Crown module" She opened it for me and handed me a plastic wrapped insert with Academy of Secrets showing. I was a bit dissappointed until I realized there were two books there. As I shifted Academy to see what the other one was...there was a huge flash of lightning and a loud crack of thunder and it started to pour.
And, yes, Wake of the Watcher was under Academy.
This module is going to be fun.
