After returning back to our fair city, we went our separate ways to pursue our various individual goals. Gilain spent his time in the tavern owned by Flora Kegtapper. Oewyn patrolled with Elyin and the Foresthawks. Leana visited the fey Nixie Melianse.
There was a stirring of unrest as commoners were upset some local trappers were found dead by the Foresthawks (failed roll 2 Unrest ,8 consumption, 21 BP to spend, claimed 2 hexes 1017 and 1119 and built farms in both for 6 BP, built 2 more granaries in Ologdal and Capital and a house in Ologdal. Recruitment was changed to normal. We failed the income roll, the Mivan trade caravan made it so we gained 1 BP).
The mangled bodies (1419, 1618) were not eaten nor was loot taken. Mysterious.
Another bar fight occurred with Akiros and a female dwarf who apparently lasted an impressively long time.
After dealing with personal matters we traveled to Restov to receive our well deserved accolades. Besides the Lord Mayor and his adjutant, there was a Consular from the Capital named Victor Surtova. He was there to insure that we were aware that it was the Kingdom of Brevoy, not the city of Restov, who was awarding the Barony.
In Restov there was a tension in the city. There were rumors that the Reagent (who was the head of House Surtova) was pushing towards becoming the actual royal ruler of the Kingdom.
When we returned we found there was a murder. Two days previous, livestock were slaughtered, that morning a local maid named Saki was killed and half eaten, last night a shepherd and a half dozen sheep were slain and half eaten. We suspect a werewolf. The last two nights were a full moon. Jhod seemed reluctant to believe this.
After procuring some silver weaponry, we went to the first site where the livestock were killed. There were no tracks to be found. The farmer heard wolf howls.
We went to the body of the maid and found a wolf print. We followed them until they disappeared and we found a bare human footprint. We followed these tracks back to town till they disappeared.
We split up then. One group staying in town to gather information, the other going to the site of the last killing. The group that went to the site found more wolf prints but nothing else. In town, we found out there was a local who recently returned to town who had been coming and going to town disheveled. He is staying at the Gilded Tankard (where the maid worked). We decided to investigate but not confront the man, so as to not cause a mob.
The dwarf and Akinos went inside and eventually got up into the man’s room. There they found a dismembered ear with an earing. This was identified to be Saki’s. It appeared he cleared out, but we got a description of the man. We instructed the town guard to look out for them and to give an alert if they spot him (they have whistles).
We split and scoured the town. Oewyn and Lod found the suspect first. The blew the whistle and Oewyn tried to reason with the man who was quite drunk. He managed to delay things long enough for help to arrive just as the man started to transform. A vicious fight followed, during which Solider died, and the werewolf himself grew large and glowed silver. When he fell he remained large and silver furred. Don’t werewolves become human again.
At the periphery of the fight there was a commotion among the town guard. Someone else had arrived.
