The proprietor seems suitably impressed by the information produced by the little gnome.  "Good, sir, would that I had the time to listen to a more in depth explanation of these arts; however, I must attend to some things around here.  Do you fancy good cheese?  I have a block in the cellar that I'll slice off for you when I return.  Perhaps a draught of this new black ale from Riverton?"

With that, he disappears outside leaving Baxton and Bridlglib alone.

Bronn is quickly able to determine that the animals involved were very large felines.  At least two of them, one male and one female.  For some reason the idea of two large cats is tickling the back of his memory but he can't quite recall why this should be important.

John is standing slack jawed eyeing Bronn suspiciously.

Sidari finds the clearing in the woods comfortable but can't shake the feeling that she is being watched; however, she hasn't noticed anything.

Google Translate renders it as:

I love Thy Ball Too! The guy it's over! Spoken my hand!

As soon as Bronn arrives at the carcasses, he is instantly able to determine that the two cows were not ritually sacrificed.  These animals were devourved - at least partially - by wild animals.  And large ones at that.

John is still ranting about how the witch needs to be caught.  "She was wearing men's trousers and had a staff - you know all those witchy types have staffs, right?  Yeah, so she had short dark hair that was curly on the ends.  She had those demonic green eyes and pale, white skin.  She was short.  She's the cause of all this, I'm telling ya.  She threadtened me.  Uh, threatened to curse me and make me her pet."

Menwhile, back at the inn ...

"Excuse me Good Gnome," the portly proprietor addresses Brindlglib.  "May I ask what you are doing?  The string seems too thin to support your weight, though you appear quite light and the knots are spaced so far apart, I doubt it is for climbing."  He then glances around for Baxton as if assuring himself that he is still present.

Given that demons don't seem to favor anyone other than themselves and seem to delight in bringing pain and suffering to all who cross their path, the thinking is pretty universal.

Magic use is actually a capital crime in Dwarven lands.

John sneers at the inn keeper before hustling out the door.  He runs  - staggers really - toward a dilapidated barn near the edge of this small settlement.  As he dashes inside, the group can see the light from his lantern swinging back and forth.

"She was just here!  Brazen as brass.  We're too late, though.  She's moved on."

The other concerned citizens asks for the group to investigate the cattle.  The beasts are torn to pieces with indiscriminate organs removed or shredded.

Bah!

I just count on them ignoring the original and going to see it anyway.  For reference, I enjoyed - not loved, but enjoyed - the new Total Recall.

In other news, I saw Looper this past week.

"Yeah, smells like you've been drinking again.  Quit telling wolf stories, old man."

Just then another man bursts in.  "There are witches about!  I found dead cows out by the old Jorel place."

John, the drunk, smirks at the keeper before saying, "I know where one of them is!  A woman dressed like a man and carrying a stick.  She was in the barn."

Sorry for the delay.  Been an interesting - but, good - RL weekend.

Magic users aren't terribly common; however, they pop up from time to time.  Minor talents that have a few parlor tricks are probably tolerated - especially in an occupation that could use a little extra help - thieves, delvers, hired swords and mercenaries.

However, the reaction of the general public is often more severe.  Think Salem Witch Trials without all the hysteria.  The prevailing thoughts about magic for any who have cared to pay attention are these:

  • Magic creates demons: Those who lose control of the power become demons.  The more powerful the sorcerer, the more powerful of a demon he becomes.
  • Demonic Pacts: Demons enter into pacts with humans in order to bring over more demons from wherever they come from.  This action grants the human immense power but damns their soul.
  • The open gate: Something happened before the destruction of the civilization that built the ruins.  They opened a gate and the demons came into this world.  So did magic.

Sidari finds a quiet clearing with a dense canopy where she can safely bed down.

Bronn, Brindlglib and Baxton are just about to settle in to their chosen piece of real estate on the floor when an obviously distraught man bursts through the door screaming.  "There's a witch in the village!  A witch in old man Jorel's barn.  She threatened me and is planning on call down demons on us all!"

The portly way station keeper looks at him.  "John, have you been drinking again?"

"No.  She's a witch I tell you."

He walks backwards through the door of the barn and then turns and runs.  "You'll burn, you bitch!"

Back home and back to a more normal posting schedule.

The old drunk looks up at Sidari with hate in his eyes and venom in his voice.  "I'll get you, she-wolf.  We'll see who's laughing when I've got the collar 'round your neck."

Sidari gets the distinct impression that were he not drunk, this old codger would be more of a challenge.

The drunk has a completely surprised look on his face as he tumbles to the ground.  When the knife goes flying out of his hand he grows furious.  "I will kill you!"

He gets up and tries a wild haymaker but misses.

The drunk seems surprised that Sidari escaped his grasp.  Now that she is on her feet and armed he seems to take stock of the situation.  "Oh, you want to play?  Let's play."  He draws his knife and slashes at her.

It feels like it bites somewhere.

Rather than interupt the tension of the IC thread I'll note here that Brindlglib spends the evening makeing knots at 1 yard intervals in the string.

So noted and thank you.
