- Aye, tis be one hell of a story lass.- Magnus said.
- Indeed. - Domerth said - But we'll see what tomorrow brings. - He said as he poured some of the fish stew from the pot.



The next morning brought a ray of sunshine. Domerth and the expedition were preparing their weapons for the hunt.
As agreed with the village elder, Domerth took along two men from the village, who knew the area well. They even wore gambesons, even though the pieces looked like they've seen a lot of wear, it was a still better option than wearing nothing. The two men had crossbows and axes as their weapons, even though these axes seemed to be more tools than actual war axes.

- We're locked and loaded. Let's go bag the beast. - Magnus said to Domerth. He nodded, and gestured for the village men to lead.
Soon enough, they were by the nest of the wyvern. The beast was sleeping.
- Something's wrong lads - Magnus whispered. - Look at it. ye can see the bloody bones right through it's hide.
- It looks like it's been starving. that's why it's attacking the village.- Domerth said, as he heard a crossbow go off. One of the villagers fired his. It barely missed the wyvern grazing it on the back. What it did, it woke up the beast, as well as angered it.

- "Dang!" Larkas sees they blew the chance of slaying the beast. He takes out a knife and throws it on the wyvern, who deflects it with its wing. "Try damaging its wings first!"

Domerth fired one of his pistols at the beast aiming towards any weakpoints of the animal. The shot connected with the leg of the wyvern.
Magnus had emptied one of his crossbow magazines at the wings of the beast, hitting one of them in the membrane, tearing it in the process, as well as the bone of the appendage, preventing the beast to take flight and attack the expedition.
- Watch for the tail and it's teeth! - Magnus said as he moved a tad closer, with Nivera following. She got her musket cocked. As she fired, the remaining unscathed wing was damaged greatly, as much as the big projectiles nearly tearing off the limb.
- Beast's nearly done lads! Let's finish it off! - Magnus said as he unsheathed his hunting cleaver.

"WOO!" came the shout as Brynhildr practically soared through the air towards the creature, her new two-handed sword above her head as she jumped and brought it down with all her might, hitting the neck of the beast. whether it was due to the malnourishment or because she was just the strong and great she could not say but the head did roll down on the ground and she picked it up. Holding it above her head she let out a roar of triumph.

"anyone knows how to turn this into a helmet?" she asked the onlookers. "I think it will really bring out my eyes"

- We need to bring the head back to the elder, so no. No turning it into a helmet. - Domerth said.
- If ye like lass, I can forge one in the visage of the beast for ye the moment we reach Sapphire. - Magnus said to Bryn. - Let's haul it back then- Magnus said as he grabbed by the tail of the slain beast. Few others joined him, and about an hour later, the expedition had returned to the village.

Domerth had conversed with the elder for some time. He negotiated their pay. Domerth accepted half of the sum, and took the skin of the wyvern, which was already being flayed by Magnus and Nivera. The head of the beast was hung from the belltower of the village hall.
Domerth did however, showed the disdain for the behaviour of the villagers accompanying the expedition. He expressed his angry disposition, and told the elder that one of his villagers potentially endangered the hunt and his men. This was followed by a tirade of apologies from the elder. Domerth let it go off easily, and gave some advice that next time, they should follow the more expirienced in such matters.

Shortly after the wyvern was skinned, and it's leather prepped for further processing, the expedition resumed moving, but not before Hahn had a talk with Domerth. The young monk wished to stay behind in the hamlet and help out these people as much as they could. As a parting gift, Domerth gave him one of the swords found in the shrine to Calista.

- If we're lucky, we should reach Sapphire tommorow at noon - Domerth said after looking at the maps.

The rest of the day was uneventful and dull. However, the next morning, after the expedition packed up the camp, trouble soon found them.
A dozen masked men had ambushed the expedition.
- Stand and deliver, your money or your life!- Their supposed leader shouted. Before he could react, Domerth pulled the trigger of one of his pistols, hitting the highwaymen leader in the right shoulder, as the rest of the expedition brandished their weapons, and readied themselves to attack.

"Unnnnngh", 'Elepaio jumped out the wagon and walked between the company and the bandits.

"Wait, wait, wait. You have got to be some of the most dimwitted bandits I have ever seen. I mean really which one of you said, 'Oh, I know lets attack the caravan made almost entirely out of grizzled armed soldiers wearing the tatter banners symbols, and carrying around a wyvern head they must be the weakest.' I mean there is a war going on and THIS was your best idea?"

Magnus began to laugh loudly while sitting in his wagon, with one hand on the reins of his ram, and his crossbow in the other.
- Yer bloody right lass. - He said as he wiped tears from his eyes. - These louts be either incredibly brave, or incredibly stupid!

- Brave or stupid, it doesn't matter - Domerth said while approaching the bandits, who had already dropped their weapons and were shaking at best. He punched their leader in the face, knocking him out. He collapsed like a sack of coals - With this pace will be in Sapphire by late noon. I think the Patriarch of the freehold would reward us if we bring them this bunch of degenerates. Larkas, search them, then tie them up.And if any of you halfwits try to pull something stupid - He said to the cowering bandits - I'll execute every single one of you.

- "I'll smack anyone that tries to move." Lakras threatens the bandits. As he is searching through the bandits, one of them moves, but Lakras takes out a knife and throws it in the bandit's leg. The bandit falls down, showing how painful that was.
- "Capiche?" Larkas continues searching and finds nothing much of value. A bunch of knives, lockets, purses, rings etc. He does manage to find a bottle of beer, though. Larkas finishes his work by tying the bandits and grins, drinking that beer.

Once the bandits were bound and their loot secured, the expedition resumed movement.
In the distance, the spires of Sapphire loomed, and came closer with each passing minute.
After several hours on a busy road filled with merchant caravans. Almost all of them were escorted by well armed guards.
The main gates of Sapphire were large and richly decorated with images of animals, gods and heroes.
The city guard wore ornate suits of armor, painted blue, with a gold trim.
The moment the expedition stepped through the gate, they had entered a unending stream of people and carts. An eternal market of sorts. From near the gates, one could get a good look at the docks of the port city, as well as the intricate crafstmanship on the ships employed by this freehold.
The expedition was greeted by one of the senior officers of the city guard. Judging from his look, he may as well had been the head of security in the freehold.
- Well met Brothers and Sisters of the Banner.- The man greeted the expedition. He was middle aged, but started to go bald. He had a lot of coin pouches on his belt. - And with a gift as well. I presume the bound fellows are one of the bandit gangs that maraud the road to Beryl.
- Indeed good ser. - Domerth said - Believe it or not, they actually tried to rob us. They must be getting desperate.
- There is a reward for capturing any of these gangs. Here. - The head of the city guard tossed Domerth one of the coin pouches. It held twenty forints.
- Not one to shun away from money, but isn't a twenty forints a tad too much for this gang of cravens?
- Nonsense - The officer said. - Sapphire is rich. Our treasuries are filled to the brim with gold and platinum my lord. Besides, it was the Patriarch's order.
- I see. If I may, I'd like directions to a respectable inn which would house all of us and our gear for a few days.
- A difficult task.- The captain of the guard sighed-. Many of these merchants taken up a lot of rooms in a lot of inns in the city. There is one that would suit your needs my lord. It's called "The Cutlass and Anchor". I would try my luck there. When you reach the second square, turn to the left, and turn left again when you reach the piers. It's in a side of the docks that does not deal with any unpleasant smells, and should be relatively empty, because our merchant guests preffer the ones close to the city square.
- Very well. There is another thing. I would like to meet the Patriarch on the morrow. The name's Domerth of House Dragonheart, I am the leader of this Tattered Banner's expedition.
- I'll see what I can do. Good day my lord.
- Good day to you too ser - Domerth said.
They followed the guard captain's instructions, and soon reached the inn. It wasn't the most prettiest building, nothing close to the refurbished elven architecture, but it should accomodate the expedition nicely.

Once settled in at their new temporary home, Domerth gathered everyone for a brief meeting.
- Same drill as Beryl - He said. - We mingle with the townsfolk, and see what can we get useful out of it. I'm going to meet the patriarch tommorow. We basically need to know what's further up North, and what's the situation up in Garnet.

Having avoided the minor trouble with the bandits, and having a bit of free time, Orryth decided to talk with Halfman once more. "So, you had said that if I was to be a shaman of my race, I would be one who would likely summon beasts and elementals? That is not something that I've tried before, and I was wondering if I would be any better at that than what I am now with what I do. Though, I do think I am getting better in that respect. Is there anyone that could advise me with these summonings? Perhaps yourself?"

Halfman and Nightshade were playing a game of chess, when Orryth began speaking to Halfman.
- You are indeed improving, which is very good.- Halfman said with a warm smile.- The orc shamans are very peculiar. There was one shaman I knew, we fought in the war for the North together. He carried a pair of lavish emerdinan katars into battle,as well as the fury of fire and lightning, and called forth spirits of dire wolves to his aid. Those spirit beasts tore through the ranks of the cult, as if they were made of flesh and blood, and not just spectral aparitions as they appeared. I do not unfortunately, know much about orcish shamanism. The Elders of Kree had never given us any permission to deeply study their secrets, so what we of the Samann have are mainly shallow observations of their art. But from what we gathered, the Shaman are tapping not into the arcane energies as we mages do, but into the elements themselves. The exact nature of it, is alas, beyond my knowledge. For now, I would suggest to stick to your current regime of training my friend.

A band of bards were present at the Cutlass And Anchor, and were providing some entertainment to the members of the expedition, as Domerht tossed few talars into their chest. He also ordered a round of drinks for his crew.
- 'Elepaio, I need you to go to the marketsquare to entertain some folk with your fire magics on the morrow, and at the same time try to catch some rumors as well - Domerth said to the sorceress.
Magnus had stepped outside for a while to go to the stables to chack on his ram, and had seen Bryn scare away a passer by with her intimidating intonation.
- If it's gladiatorial fighting yer lookin for, don't bother lass. Sapphire doesn't have it. But if yer fists itch that much, there is a bare knuckle fighting ring in the city. It used to be held in the Black Whale tavern, not far from 'ere, by the bloody marketplace. Entry fee is ten talars. Winner takes all.
