February 24-25, 25NA
Things begin to get worse as Nancy Healy is nowhere to be found and Mayor Bruce Courdry's actions become more and more erratic. The mayor even threatens Aideen and Desmond with a crossbow.
During the groups overnight rest, they send Mrs. Finnegan, Baldric, and Isabel to stay overnight at the Highwayman's Rest and keep watch together in their own sitting room. Desmond, Iliken, and Declan all receive visitations in their dreams, though Desmond's is circumvented by his patron.
Iliken is warned by Black Mantle that the mayor is definitely acting out of character, as she had expected him to push harder against the new guild. Declan is warned that his actions have cost the lives of four men, and that there will be a redress of the matter.
In the morning, the body of Isabel is found in Declan's bed with the number 1 carved into it.
The group summons the Constable who asks them to let his people handle this situation.
The group next travels to meet with council members, starting with Grumbar Brightaxe, whom they convince without meaning to, that the mayor needs intervention. Grumbar discovers and dispels a curse on Bruce Courdry.
