In an unusual and highly efficient maneuver, our intrepid heroes came together to share the intel they had gained on Sir Florin, revealing a large number of interesting details: Florin is reported to have a favor owed him by a dragon, owns a hellhound, and seems to have the good will of several houses and factions, and the ill will of several more.
Florin was revealed to be a creature of habit, performing a nightly patrol which took him in a wide route around House Vesque. Still in need of several critical details such as where Florin lived, the team split up: Evelyn and Maxine’s raven performed a night-time stake-out, running into Florin and his hellhound in the street. The following day, Hugo and Maxine, now in the form of a dire wolf, tracked the hellhound to its residence, where a few more interesting details were revealed: Florin’s recent rise in wealth and status was apparently enough for him to afford a fortress-style dwelling with an imposing wooden front door hung with a silver door knocker in the shape of the Beast of Malar.
Our heroes met again to review intel and formulate a plan. However, no sooner had they laid these cards on the table did mutual mistrust and petty grievances set in. Chief among these issues was the question of why this would-be team should even bother working together. It took several heart-to hearts among the party and a visit from a grumpy but honest imp (their new employer’s familiar) to get hackles lowered and the team ready to progress once more.
