I am going to check on the smithies, see if I can scrounge up something on Ben's murder, then head to the library to check some books quickly - see if I can find this Ice Heart mentioned anywhere. Whatever plan you decide for finding and talking with Maria is up to you, and I am sure it will turn out. But we need to move quickly if we are going to get anything done yet today." With that, Phaedrus stands up, stretches a bit, and checks to see if the others follow his lead.
