Mullberger's visions at the burned down inn were mere hints and shadows only. A subjective eye could make out Skaven, but then a subjective eye can see whatever it wishes. He scattered the ashes he was using for his spell and returned to the Bianca.

We were again hit with the enormity of a city proper as we sailed into Altdorf. It took time to get to a proper berth, Mullberger anxious to disembark all the while. When we docked, he took off for the University. Tegort also took his leave to return to his family, but let us know we could call upon him if we needed him again.

After some confusion of who was going where, Maximillian decided to follow Mullberger. Mordrin followed the halfling.

 The halfling didn't feel as if things had come to a proper conclusion with the magisters and felt Mullberger was probably key to setting things to rest. Maximillian's delay in following the Journeyman we enough to note that he was not the only one following the wizard. A beggar kept hot on the apprentice's heels.

Maximillian addressed the beggar, and even gave him some alms, hoping to get information out of the man. While thankful, the beggar was tight-lipped and evaded Maximillian's questioning. He slipped off into the crowd.

Maximillian had lost Mullberger but knew his destination. He continued to the University and asked to see the apprentice. He was told the man was not there and had not been there. To Maximillian's reasoning that left only one other option: Baron Valken for whom Sir Eiche worked.

Maximillian headed toward the merchant's district, but Mordrin was waylaid after spotting a tavern. The Cheerful End was patronized by followers of Morr, some of them recognizable. Brother Dieter, last seen at the now burned-down inn upriver, recognized Maximillian and had a seat beside him. The two caught up on events, and Maximillian indicated his intent to enter the merchant's district. Dieter stated he could get the halfling inside without alerting the multitudinous city watch. Maximillian felt it would be more difficult to remain inconspicuous with the slayer, so he left the dwarf drinking at the bar and slipped out the door.
