The Inquisitor follows Barrek and Lorenzo, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

------

Djevik meanwhile had prepared another 10 or so wolves with runes, to chase the killers of the previous one. They were equipped with a healing/ magic resistant rune (just like before) and a speed rune. "Another 10 against my will" thought Djevik who couldn't fight the halfgodesses possession of him. He went to return to his castle where he probably had to do some more tasks for her.

When walking he suddenly snapped out of the spell. he could control his body again. He knew that this was only temporarily for the feet were already submitting to the spell again. He took stick (medium sized in with and short in height) and pulled out the pen which he had used to make the runes with, and managed to write 5 words:

"The dark controls Djevik Castle"

With that the arms were under the spell, creeping up the arms to the hands and from the body up the neck. He told the halfgodesses crow to carry the log to the party that slayed the wolves (The crow doesn't feel any suspicion because its job is not to think if there is a halfgodess around to do it for the bird). With that Djevik went to the castle as if nothing had happened.

"Probably" the Inquisitor said "let's do a quick check and head back to Tucker"

The inquisitor was just about to go in through the gate, when he saw the crow come towards them. It landed close and dropped the message and wasted no time flying away.

"Well isn't that interesting? Barrek look at this message" said the Inquisitor handing it to him.

Barrek took the message and read it. "Djevik Castle? Sounds like a Northern place. Have you heard of it?" he asked the group in general. His own considerable experience came from the middle realms (of which Tucker and Mons are two of the larger city-states) and to a lesser extent the Southern kingdoms, the last human settlements before the ancient walls of the dwarven strongholds in the mountains.

Before anyone can answer him, there is a sudden noise and a rider on some winged beast flew overhead, not far above treetop level. He bears a flag of truce as well as the banner of Jardeune (which Lorenzo points out to the others) and seems to be heading for Tucker as fast as his mount can go.

The Inquisitor turned to Barrek "should we see what that is about? We are, I'm assuming, heading north to that castle anyway."

"It would seem so. As Lorenzo pointed out, that rider was from...Jardeune, was it?"

"Aye, Jardeune."

"Yes, and he clearly looked to be in some hurry. Perhaps there are more interesting things going on in the North than we suspect."

[If nobody minds the puppeteering I'm going to assume that the party heads off north.]

Lorenzo, while walking, suddenly thought of something. "You know, if you don't know your own name, I could probably think of something that fits your station, Inquisitor. Because I'm going to get tired of saying 'Inquisitor' all the time. What say you?"

--------Meanwhile, on the island of Stirken--------

The dwarves regarded the newcomers with no small amount of suspicion. They were clearly humans, though not one of the Southerlings they were used to dealing with. They were built wrong; too tall and thin, and their skin was pale rather than brown or tan. Their hair, worn straight in various styles looked rather suspiciously Elvish, was a deep auburn color, and their eyes were gray and slit-like, curiously angled as well. All in all, clearly a bunch of troublemakers. That they didn't speak the language was an added nuisance, particularly because a group of them kept coming up to the walls and calling up apparently random Dwarvish words.

It was only getting worse, too. Dwarf-Lord Iftensen was about ready to march out there and knock them all the way back to whatever continent from which they had come. The only real improvement since they had come had been the decrease in Shipwright piracy off Stirken's northeast coast, but if the two events were connected the dwarves certainly didn't see it.

***

"That's the last."
"That few, really?"
"Of all the words we know, yes. If we're to fully translate their language we're going to need more."
"We'd best inform Lord Enthien. If he allows a small party of soldiers to come with us..."
"The creatures may well think we're attacking and respond in kind, you fool."
"Not if we approach under a flag of truce..."

***

The two humans continued their discussion as they walked away from the dwarven listening post disguised as a boulder nearby. The dwarf inside, frustrated at being told to listen to incomprehensible balderdash, was currently gulping down a mug of ale and ignoring everything being said. Not that he could've learned anything useful anyway.

"How about Azadar?"

There is a commotion up ahead, some people are shouting indistinctly. An instant later, a horse bolts past from the direction of the noise.

"Sure" replied the Inquisitor, then he turned to point at the crowd "but let's have a look at what is happening ahead"

The source of the noise appears to be a caravan which has just been raided. Numerous carts have been looted, valuables removed and the horses slain or fled. Scattered corpses indicate exactly what happened to the caravan guards. They have been savagely mutilated with whatever the attackers could find, it seems.

There are three carts. One appears to be largely destroyed and empty. One contains what look like wooden cages of a sort, and one contains a bunch of crates, a few of which have been pried open and rummaged through. They appear to contain cloth.

"Interesting..." Barrek comments drily, while Lorenzo goes to dig through one of the open crates curiously.

A small child walks from behind one of the carts. He looks at you inquisitively and cocks his head to the left. His hair is matted and black, dirt and blood are smeared over his ruined clothing.

(I suppose I should use my characters new name)

Azadar took a brief glance at the crate contents. Nothing interesting. Then he scanned the crowd. They all seemed to be in fine condition, but there was a group of people standing near the front of the cart that looked bloodied. Then his glance fell on the child right in front of him. "What is going on here?" he wanted to know.

The Child smiles pointed canines are visible. He points to the south west, and looks to the east as if he is looking at someone.

"This is a most fascinating sign," Darrien notes, stroking his chin thoughtfully. "The question is, are any of us able to interpret it? Perhaps you, Barrek? Or maybe you, Inquisitor Azadar? I regret to admit that I cannot be of help here; my skills lay in more martial affairs, and in those few magical subjects which I have studied in depth."

"Also, do you suppose this the tragedy our elemental friend was referring to earlier, or is there more to find in the village?"

[The majority of the people around have been brutally killed. The only people who haven't are the people in the wooden cages and DWs human child.]

"Interesting...The length of the boy's teeth would suggest symptoms of vampirism or lycanthropy."

Lorenzo, having reached the same conclusion regarding the crate contents, was currently heading over to the cart with the cages. "Oi! There's people in these cages! Live ones." On closer inspection, three of the cages contain people huddled inside, their wrists bound and cloth sacks tied over their heads.

[Sorry]

Azadar came over to where Lorenzo stood. Then he also saw the people inside the cages. "Let us free them. Is there a key nearby?" Not waiting for an answer he went over to one of the cages to look for a key. (I don't know if there is one...)

The cages, being made of wood, had simply had their doors fastened shut with a tight knot rather than being chained or locked. One of the prisoners stirs, hearing people moving outside.

[Essentially if one wanted one could just hack through the cages.]

"If the child is any indication, these apparent prisoners might prove problematic. Still, I believe it is just to free them regardless, but be on guard, companions."

With that, Darrien raises his spell book, which flips open to a page, apparently of its own accord. Raising his sword he speaks the words inscribed on the page, and his sword breaks out in bluish white cold fire (which will damage objects, but not living things), and he touches it to the bars of the cage which are promptly engulfed, and soon after consumed.

The Child watches and pulls out a loaf of bread from inside his shirt. He starts to eat it when you notice that something is off… he doesn't seem to be real.

[To re-state what I said at lunch the other day, the party as a whole is going to some Northerly place called Djevik Castle, under the control of evil forces so as to liberate the castle and generally do some good. On the way, there was a commotion and we've come upon a small ransacked caravan containing three prisoners of unknown nature and disposition. I believe we are deciding what to do about the whole caravan incident.]

"Unlikely. The rider was carrying the banner of Jardeune [as pointed out by Lorenzo], while these bear the mark of..." He looked over at a wagon, having not actually seen the mark. "...Alvorstead."
