    Elsa thought about it carefully. "I'm... touched that you'd trust me with this responsibility, considering what happened with Orfeo." There was a tug-of-war between ambition and caution in her mind. Unlike most times, the latter won out, and at last she said: "Don't you think there might be trust issues between the men and me, given how I returned from my last trip with one man fewer? I'm also still struggling with my Tilean. For the time being at least, I think I might be of better use as a second-in-command to someone with more military experience."

    She thought it best to add: "The whole expedition is still a long shot. We cannot know where the book is, only where it isn't. It's still worth it, if only because of how high the stakes are... but if I were you, I wouldn't start making plans that take our success for granted."

    "I won't be sending my men with you," said Sforza. "Esteban will take a detachment to these ruins and set up camp on the high ground. After that, you and these... adventurers will be on your own."

    They reached a junction of two corridors and Sforza stopped, perhaps intending to go a different way.

    "The Iron Company is too well-known for my men not to draw suspicion in my rivals' lands. Your friends are - how do you say... nobodies, no? No-one will associate them with me." He paused. "The less attention you draw, the better."

    "The whole expedition is still a long shot. We cannot know where the book is, only where it isn't. It's still worth it, if only because of how high the stakes are... but if I were you, I wouldn't start making plans that take our success for granted."
    Sforza nodded. "This book is an unknown, signora. I do not like unknowns with the power to disrupt my plans." He waved a placating hand. "If all you can do is make certain it is not in the hands of one of the other princes, the expedition will be worth the time."

    "Esteban will take a detachment to these ruins and set up camp on the high ground. After that, you and these... adventurers will be on your own."
    This lifted Elsa's spirits. Having none of Sforza's men would mean not having to worry about honest types like Cesar. "Sounds good. They're hardly the first men you might pick for such a task, but I've a good working relationship with them."

    "If all you can do is make certain it is not in the hands of one of the other princes, the expedition will be worth the time."
    "Ah. If we do find it, no promises that we can retrieve it; I know if I had that book lying around, I'd guard it like the Imperial crown jewels. But at least we'll know who to expect the worst from."

    Sensing that her employer was about to leave, Elsa asked: "Do you still want a demonstration of my powers at the festival? If so, did you have something in mind, or may I prepare the show myself?"

    Their business with Al-Makir finished, Sieghard headed towards Mihai's smithy. It had been a month and a half, surely he had finished the captain's order by now... Unless he had placed yet another order.

    Heading inside, he took a look around before speaking up. "I'm looking for armor," he said. "Mail leggings and a coif. Do you have any already made or would I have to make an order?"

    "I trust you to come up with something suitably impressive," said Sforza with a feline smile. "If Beatrix is giving the demonstration, though... perhaps it would benefit us to send Elsabeth after the book."

    "There is one last thing," he said, lingering on the corner. "As you are both members of the company, Abdul and I have decided to treat you and Cesar's gold as spoils. I am afraid it means you will not keep as much of it as your friends - just an officer's share."

    Touching his hand to her shoulder in a conciliatory gesture, he turned to go. "Speak to Abdul for the details," he said. "And rest assured - when we bring out the rest, there will be much more for you!"

    Turning to leave, the three companions were escorted directly out of the palace. Ludo and Viggo stopped in the barrack yard to seek out Bianco's apprentices, while Sieghard set off in the direction of the smithy.

    Down in the town, Sieghard found Mihai resting outside his forge. The smith cracked open a sooty eye to regard Sieghard as he approached.

    "I'm looking for armor," he said. "Mail leggings and a coif. Do you have any already made or would I have to make an order?"
    "Not on hand," said the blacksmith, slithering a little more upright in his sitting position. "You want I make? I make." He looked Sieghard up and down, estimating the mercenary's measurements. "Forty crowns, I make it all."

    ~

    Viggo, meanwhile, was getting measured up for quite a different outfit. Chiara was a brusque, shapely woman on the cusp of middle age, and she took the minstrel's measurements with a length of knotted string as she spoke to him in rapid-fire Tilean. Smiling and nodding, Viggo did his best to make himself understood in the few broken pieces of Reikspiel she seemed to understand. She seemed to get the idea of the clothes he wanted - but when he tried to haggle down her price, her limited grasp of the language seemed to mysteriously evaporate.

    The fine clothes Viggo wanted would take fine materials. If he understood her correctly (and he wasn't sure he did), Chiara believed she could get them cheaply during the festival - she gave him to understand the clothes would be ready within a week. The cost for this was 'only' twenty-five crowns.

    When he was done with the seamstress, he went searching for someone with a better grasp of Reikspiel to make his other enquiries. He quickly learned that there was nowhere in Mirino where he could simply buy a lute - but the villagers he asked were full of suggestions about how to get one.

    "There's a halfling in Sermena who really knows his way around woodwork," said one. "Ronald Swanfeather, works up at the mine. If you asked, I bet he could make a lute that sounded sweet as you like."

    "They might have that kind of thing in Isolici. They've got the timber for it."

    "You might be able to get one at the festival. People'll be coming from all over, they've got all kind of things for trade."

    His enquiries after a horse were a little easier. He soon found a farmer from one of the surrounding homesteads who was looking to sell his animal. A towering draft horse with hooves like dinner plates, it had a slightly dejected air, hanging its head low with its mane plastered flat against the side of its neck. Nevertheless, its coat was a glossy chestnut colour, and it was tall enough at the shoulders to make even Sieghard look like a little boy next to it. Best of all, the farmer was willing to sell it for a mere sixty-five crowns!

    If you'll allow it, the difference in price between sleeved and non-sleeved mail shirt is 35gc for a total of 75gc by book prices.

    Poking gingerly at his new stiches, and with his money burning a hole in his pocket, Ludo bought a pie. Horses and Lutes and fancy clothes were alright, he thought, but he'd take a good pie any day. Stoutheart had been worrying a chicken carcass out the back of the chalice, and Ludo scratched him behind the ears and wandered down to the market.

    He owed Adelbert a debt, and he wasn't the only one.

    Ludo will buy a pie, at rulebook price.

    Gossip tests: Ludo is looking for Adelberts apprentice (whose existance he is aware of, but not his name) and also for Nuri (the girl with the pox, yes?). Both vs 48.

    (1d100)[83] for the apprentice
    (1d100)[39] for whatsername.

    I imagine that never having met the apprentice will make that roll harder, so here's a re-roll. (1d100)[25]. If i pass the first roll and fail the second, apply the re-roll to that.

    It took Ludo a bit of legwork to find out who it was that Adelbert had promised to take on. A lucky choice of peasant to question pointed him in the right direction, and he soon found himself standing outside the door of one of the small dwellings on the trailing edge of the town.

    Knocking, he was greeted by a stoutly-built barrel of a woman. Her skin was tanned to the consistency of leather, her straight, dark hair was turning to grey, and she looked like she could break Ludo's neck with her thumbs.

    "What do you want?"

    Finding Aisha was easier. Making his way to Krucke's, Ludo found her at the back of the rickety building, washing clothes in a battered wooden tub.

    "Oh," she said, straightening up and brushing a strand of hair from her face as she saw him. He saw a glimmer of surprise - and maybe excitement - in her eye. "You're back!"

    Sieghard handed over his mail and dug forty coins out of his purse, counting them in front of the smith. "Forty now. I'll pay the rest when I come back for the mail. When will it be done?"

    ------

    His business with the smith finished, Sieghard took a moment to decide what to do next. He still had to check in on Aisha and now that he wouldn't be able to leave Mirino he would need to figure something out about collecting the debt money for Filomena.

    He headed back towards Krucke's shop. The choice was easy, he was in no rush to talk to Filomena.

    Viggo handed Chiara the gold that she asked for, almost managing to conceal a wince as he did so. Instead he put on his 'winning' grin again, the one that women, well, girls at least, found so charming. "Oh" His grin was replaced with a solemn expression of disappointment, "I was hoping to have the costume at least in time for the festival. You understand? The Festival?" He pouted a little to help convey his woe. "A minstrel without a proper costume, would be like.. well like a seamstress without a needle and thread! Please, Frau Chiara, is there no way of having it ready in time?" He paused to let his request sink in. "Lovely name by the way, Frau Chiara. Almost... poetic!"

    ~

    Viggo gave the dour looking horse serious consideration, not as showy as his Magnus had been but sturdy nonetheless. In the end he passed the opportunity by. It just wouldn't do, him all decked out in his new finery, to be seen riding a lumbering draft horse into town. Who'd take me seriously then?! No, Viggo would just have to keep looking no matter how desperate he was to spend his new found wealth.

    ~

    Disappointed one more about the distinct lack of musical aficionados and folk of culture in Mirino, Viggo instead headed towards the blacksmith. He was sure he'd heard Sieghard mention he was heading that way. And besides he thought to himself as he walked along whistling a merry tune, If I'm to head off again, I can at least buy myself something better than that useless bloody vest!

    Chiara only seemed to understand one word in three, but Viggo's extensive hand gestures and facial expressions did a half-decent job of filling in the gaps. She seemed irritatingly indifferent to Viggo's charms - but she at least had caught the glitter of his gold.

    "The... costume?" she said. "Si. I finish tomorrow." She held up her index finger. "One crown more. One."

    Heading to the forge, Viggo arrived to find Sieghard already there talking to the smith. Mihai was holding Sieghard's mail shirt as the mercenary turned to leave - and caught sight of Viggo coming the other way.

    Viggo hopped from foot to foot, clearly his leg was no longer bothering him as much as it been. "Think you can help me choose some armour?" He waved in the direction of the blacksmith, "Here my good chap! I'm looking for some armour. Leather, none of that heavy metal stuff!" he added indicating Sieghards mail shirt. Turning to look back at the mercenary, he continued his voice slowing somewhat. "What about Ludo eh? What do you make of what he did to Adelbert?" Viggo was feeling somewhat conflicted himself. "What Ludo did was clearly wrong, but it was bloody foolish of Adelbert to run off like that in the first place, right?"

    Chiara flinched from Viggo's hand, staring in alarm at the coin he produced. Mastering her surprise, she took it with stammered thanks in broken Reikspiel.

    He was still one crown the poorer, but at least now he felt he'd scored some kind of a point.

    Mihai the smith looked at Viggo with hooded eyes.

    "Is forge," he said, sounding unimpressed. "Sell iron. You want leather, go buy leather."

    "What's that now? No leather? Armour is armour ain't it?" Viggo brows furrowed in consternation. It seemed he couldn't spend his gold even if he wanted to. "Where do I buy a decent set of leather armour then, if not here?"

    "Ludo shouldn'tve said anything, but what's done is done," he said as they walked. "Schreiber will just have to deal with it when he comes back. Paying one coin in ten isn't so bad considering we couldn't stop Sforza from taking the lot of it if he chose to."

    Viggo's nose wrinkled at the memory of his last trip to the tannery, "Gods! But that place reeks!" Viggo nodded along as Sieghard spoke, "You're right I suppose, bloody Halflings, always chattering away eh? I don't know how they ever find time to breath around all the words that come pouring out of them!" He seemed unaware of any irony in his words.

    He drew to a halt briefly when his friend mentioned the one coin in ten, remembering Sieghard's pointed lesson on the road back. He shrugged, jogging for a pace or two to fall back into step. "I wonder how much an Iron Company soldier gets paid? He did say he'd pay us right?"

    "You were looking to become Herr Schreiber's apprentice, right?" He eyed the boy up, and wondered if any infectious disease was more likely to pass the other way. "I'm a friend of his. He told me to tell you he'll be out of town for a little while longer- maybe a few weeks- and to give you this, as payment for the time you should have been working."

    He held out a pair of gold coins- not the mysterious kind. This didn't salve his guilt very much.

    OOC: Obviously, cut off after the first sentence if Kaja denies it.

    Kaja looked a little crestfallen when Ludo told him about Adelbert - but the look was replaced immediately by wide-eyed wonder at the pair of golden coins. Taking them with an almost reverent air, he thanked Ludo, hid them inside his tunic, and scuttled back inside.

    "For the festival?" Aisha nodded emphatically. "Yes. If it means a chance to get more work." She gestured to the tub. "This old spider has me washing his stupid clothes."

    They found Iosif the tanner working outside his hut outside the village, scraping clean a fresh skin. They smelt his work long before that.

    Rising to greet them, the great bear of a man wiped his bloody palms on the front of his jerkin. "More wolves?" he asked, giving Sieghard a gap-toothed grin. On his face, the expression was unintentionally intimidating.

    After a bath and a tankard of ale (I really should stop drinking alone), Elsa set out to find Sieghard and the others, starting with the room Adelbert rented and moving on to the Serpent, then the market. Truth to be told, she felt more and more like an outsider among her own travel companions, but she had yet to make true friends in the army and at the court; for now she only had an employer, colleagues, and perhaps an enemy or two.

    "Yes!" said Aisha, dropping the holed tunic she had been washing back into the dirty water with disdain. "I mean - yes. Please." She looked over her shoulder towards the rickety old house. "Anything to get away from here."

    At that point Ludo heard a familiar voice from behind him. Looking round, he saw Elsa approaching.
