    "Dwarfs take grudges very seriously," said Gisela, handing the scrap of parchment back. "It's good that this wasn't a threat."

    "If it wasn't from a dwarf, then how did you come by this?"

    "We came upon it the course of our historical studies," Adelbert explained. "In fact I might have exchanged two or three words with a dwarf in my entire time in the Reaches - hence our need to find someone who knows their tongue. Languages are my specialty but I've never managed Khazalid, so we are grateful for the assistance madam."

    "Well, next time look it up in a book," said Gisela, sharply. She didn't deign to answer Sieghard's question, clearly regarding him as hired help. "I'm a very busy person."

    Closing Corvo's book, she looked back to Adelbert. "You're doing historical research into the dwarfs - I don't suppose it has any relation to the Dwimmulhold?"

    "I doubt it," Adelbert replied, a little of his own irritation rubbing through his tone. He was not having a good time in Savonne. "We believe this mark to be very ancient and didn't know of Savonne's relationship with the dwarfs at all until we arrived here. Or former relationship I might say."

    He did not however correct Gisela assumption that they were researching dwarfs. He glanced at the others in case they had anything to add.

    "Yes, I'm sure it takes time to get nowhere," Adelbert replied disdainfully. "Good day madam."

    He was still fuming as the group departed. "Well, that well. I don't know about you but I believe I've had quite my fill of Savonne. Let's conclude our business here and leave."

    Adelbert's expression darkened at the word 'Savonne'. His time in the town had been a bitter personal disappointment and he did not wish to stay longer than he had to.

    "There were a few other possible wizards who could have taken the book." Ludo said. "We followed up on the sorcerors of Nath because they seemed like the best lead- most others were like Beatrix or Elsa, no real motive, no connection except for being wizards."

    "I'd like to at least investigate the others a little. Perhaps we can stay a day or two?"

    Adelbert looks deeply irritated, obviously wondering why this hadn't been resolved at the last meeting with the priest and painfully aware he'd probably have to attend this one. "Fine."

    Hey, if you still have that way planned for getting back into Verena's cult I think I'd like to explore it after all if it is not too late? I still am interested in Adelbert pursuing the priestly career.

    "Something called the Karst Covens and another group called the Illuminated Order," Sieghard began repeating from memory. "A wizard from Ravenskird called Gilbertus, and another whose name he didn't know or didn't give. And Fassbender he mentioned, but I figure if she had the book, she would've attacked us just for knowing about it."

    He didn't know what had Adelbert so frustrated, but decided better than to pry. "If we're going to see the priest again, probably better to fetch Viggo first so we don't have to explain things to him later."

    "That makes sense," agreed Adelbert, rather concerned about these new groups and what their intentions might be. "Is he still performing at the Duke?"

    Looking for Viggo in the Duke turned up no sign of him. One of the servants seemed to have the vague idea that he'd gone looking for his friends, and so they headed back out onto the streets.

    After far too much wasted time, they finally found a bored-looking Viggo waiting at the Harvester's Haven. After some general grumbling, he looked surprised when they told him where they going.

    "The old priest?" he said. "But that's the first place I looked for you!"

    A note for the future: maybe when you guys split up, you should decide in advance how to meet back up?


    ~

    When they came back to Heironymus' house, the priest was in the process of letting himself out. Spotting them on the approach, he straightened up to greet them, one of his owls perched on his shoulder.

    "You again," he said, the words seemingly directed at Viggo. "And what can I do for you today?"

    "Might have had," said Heironymus, unable to resist the urge to correct someone. "The only one of them who is still alive today is living in Painford, and I think if she had it someone would have heard."

    "I was just on my way to the temple," he said, eyeing up the party with a cautious expression. As a rag-tag group of (mostly) heavily-armed malingerers, their appearance perhaps didn't inspire the most confidence. "Perhaps Master Stubbs or, um, Herr Schreiber would like to take some books on loan in the meantime?"

    "Quite," said Heironymus. "Wait here, I'll fetch them for you."

    Going back inside, he reappeared with a small stack of books under his arm. "These are the volumes I picked out. I had something on the Illuminated Order, but I'd forgotten I already lent it out." He pressed the books into Ludo's hands, eclipsing the halfling's face behind them. "Now, I really must be off. Please return those as soon as you can - they're valuable, you know." A glimmer of the old man's curiosity made him hesitate. "And let me know if you find anything, of course!"

    Adelbert looks awkward. "Yes of course... in fact if I get a chance to talk to that ancient priestess I'd welcome the chance to discuss theology with her." His expression grew wistful, his tone awed. "Imagine it, the voice of a servant of the ancient gods."

    "Meskhenet, the priestess of Kheneb-Ptra-Urush, an ancient sun god I believe. Surely I mentioned her? We met her in the ruins near Caerfort. She lives still via powerful magic, though it is more of a curse than true life." Adelbert said and shivered at the memory. "She said her gods were long dead though I believe her to be in error. After all do the Kislevites not still worship the sun?"

    He hesitated, then added with a gloomy edge to his voice: "Though of course I am merely a scholar, not a priest."

    Heironymus still looked puzzled.

    "I'm not sure what that has to do with what we were discussing," he said, uncertainly. "In any case, I must be off. Don't pin your hopes on dead religions, Herr Schreiber," he said, turning away. "You might count yourself lucky if you only find them to be worshipping false gods."

    Owl on his shoulder, the priest headed off through the streets.

    "When the priests of true gods don't even listen...," Adelbert muttered to himself unhappily as he watched Heironymus leave. With a sigh more felt than heard he turned to the others, ignoring Ludo's remark. "Well, let's go to inn and start reading."
