(Previous Notes)

The sheik of Ubain has sent his messengers to repeat his claim on our land, Padua-on-Avon.

Maximillian stopped in to Vaervenshyae's dwelling early in the day to alert her than she may hear about a horse rustling later. She is welcome to investigate it prudently, but she should not be able to find the culprits. (It also just so happens that Tankred and his group are hired to steal the visiting Sheik's horses.)

We learn of a place in town called The Old Homestead. It's an area partially burned down by orcs. and now treated as haunted house by the locals. Sounds like a great place to investigate.

The engineer wishes to examine the weapon shard we found last sitting. To test the priest's assessment about it being magical, he invents Wilhelm Hechland's Amazingly Astounding Magicodetecto Device, version 1. Essentially he crushes it between two anvils while simultaneously smashing a toad on the item. The theory is that it is well known that magical items are unbreakable and unable to be dirtied. Vaervenshyael, in possession of the item, doesn't trust the engineer and first asks Ludovic if he is amenable to this testing which will leave the item in pieces if it turns out not to be magical.

Ludovic checks the item over before agreeing to testing. He believes the  shard is shaped like cleaver (or skaven spear blade...just my meta theory) without handle. Maybe made out of dwarf gromril? It rings of crystal and metal. He thinks perhaps it is star metal? Vaervenshyael thinks both the humans are rubes.

Wilhelm tested the blade. It didn't break. It also remained clean, in that the toad guts rolled right off afterwards.

The Sheik's men came complaining to Vaervenshyael of stolen horses. She was not sympathetic. "If you can't keep control of your property, maybe you don't deserve to keep it." They are unsatisfied with the elf's lack of concern and leave to complain to Ludovic. He sends them back to their ruler without their property.

Finally, Pieter Adler comes into town, stating he may have found the old Iron Mine of Abdul al-Shadaar. His timing is impeccable, as the town smith (Tankred) was just complaining about a dearth of raw material in town.

As an aside, Vaervenshyael completely forgot to get reimbursed for purchases made in the first sitting.
