Nwalme cannot resist the challenge. There is talk of a great presence, a beast killing miners in the North lands... seldom does she venture to the facet of Trammel but today she does. West Britain bank ... normally consumed by humanity ... but today she only finds Michel Nontink He mentions Thrym and the lands North of Minoc ... after some running in the favored wolf form she finally finds him... He talks of the Shrine of Compassion, meetings with Seargeant Hawkwood and the Master-of-Arms... Nwalme is certain she is on the correct path now... The Master-of-Arms is not very helpful. He too speaks of Compassion, misunderstanding, meetings, Hawkwood ... what can it mean? Nwalme has heard from others that there is apparently a "crazy man" at the Compassion shrine relaying to all that will listen a different view of the man killing beast. Nwalme is confused and she wanders the countryside of Brit returning to the front of the Counselors hall where she sees a well worn shield placed on the hedge as if to mark an event or point the way to something. Nwalme knows now she will be at Castle Brit at this appointed time. She stealths off to prepare for whatever the evening will bring.
