(Previous Notes)

A couple of men came to town looking for the antiquities hunters that sold Vaervenshyael the blade. Some investigation showed that they worked for the prince to the north, Saltzer (sp?).  All antiquities were supposed to be sold into his possession, so these men were not in town on friendly terms.

Looking for someone to add a handle to the new blade, Vaervenshyael headed toward the inn. She found an exasperated Wilhelm indicating that the antiquity hunters were leaving town though the norther roughs were after them. She wanted to ask the men for more precise directions to where they found the artifact, but when she caught up to them Tankred was speaking to them about their safety. They ignored his offer of defense and ran out of town. They party then heard commotion from the inn.

Inside the inn, the group found the men from the north, led by one called Gaervald, harassing the lone remaining antiquity hunter, Heinrich. Gaervald's second was holding the rest of the inn at bay. Tankred challenged Gaervald, who met the challenge with a defiant act of cowardice: he stabbed Heinrich and tried to walk out of the inn. Vaervenshyael lunged toward the second to get his attention with the point of her sword.

The battle was long and rough. Vaervenshyael received a gut-punch from the second's pommel that stunned her for many seconds. Luckily, there were 4 against 2, and Tankred proved to be a bear of a man. After Gaervald's death, Vaervenshyael caught her breath in time to disarm the second. Upon questioning, the man was found to have no tongue.

The dead bodies were taken to the Barber-Surgeon's practice to burial preparations. Vaervenshyael followed for medical attention. The captive was taken to Tankred's lodge for further questioning. Wilhelm left to inform the prince as the Master of the Horse of the events.

Meta: Only the third sitting, and I already have an insanity point. An elf with a mental disability would be very strange, indeed.
