    It is early morning, yet already the streets are full of people. Leaving Hemeld, you get weird stares, turned up noses, and rude comments. Such is the life of commoners.

    The road West leads straight to the Mayor's Ruins. Your handiwork. A smoky haze hangs overhead, but there are no active fires. Merely a scorched shell of a mansion. A small crowd still surrounds the house, and a few workers soft through the rubbish.

    Moving on, you find the inn in full swing. Dozens of patrons in and out, many of them showing signs of soot and ash. The mayor was in everyone'a tongue.

    As we get to the inn, I look for Fergus.

    I go to the bar, I am famished. I order meat stew to warm my belly and wait for Fergus to appear.

    Above the clamor he shouts, "To Lunreed. On business! You drinking?"

    He and the serving girls get you all whatever you need. Costs you silver or two each.

    "Aye, I'll have an ale and some bread n bacon." I take the ale and sip it down and eat my food. I go to Zorra and Bryan each and let them know ots time for us to leave.

    I grab a drink and walk over towards a man who's been working on the fire, "Damn shame about the Mayor's home, am I correct in hearing the whole family was killed?"

    I scarf down my stew and smile with a full tum. "It is a shame we don't have any lead on this damn watch. I really liked chum bucket. I'm sure he would have made a great farm hand." I say to Sid finally letting go of the search for the lone watch.

    I slam the bowl on the table and stand up. I light my pipe and realize I am low on tobacco.

    I shout "does anyone here know where I can find some fine, flavorful tabacco?!"

    Half a dozen voices direct you to the Inn's annex, the general store.

    "Hey fellas, I'm heading to the store to get some tobacco. Need anything tasty for the ride home?"

    I head to the general store.

    I walk in looking for some service for my predicament.

    There are many shelves loaded with all your needs, and a corner counter with a clerk. The tobacco, this far north, is not cheap. One gold per pound.

    The man merely shrugs an "I don't know" and turns back to his ale.

    I take 3 pounds of tobacco. I place the 3 gp on the clerks table. "That will be all I need. Don't know when I'll be back up here. Thank ye for ye business."

    I walk to the general store with Zorra there, I look at his large purchase of tobacco. "I'm surprised you have time to breathe anything besides your pipe smoke. Cmon now, let's get back to the farm."

    "Bryan, this helps fuel the acid in my gullet. You know the acid reflex I get and this is the only thing that settles it. Like it does the same effect to me as you smooth skins."

    I pick up my goods and leave my coin. I leave with Bryan and get ready for the ride back home.

    I follow Bryan to find Zorra and then I go out to the street. I breathe in the smokey air. We go and collect our wagon and horses from Caelbir's place. We meet the farmhands at the gate.

    "Alright everyone, lets get on the road. Pengu will be worried if we don't get there soon."

    We load up all our stuff (not much really) and then hit the road.

    I lay down in the back with a pipe in hand and sun hitting my face. This is my spot. This is nice.
