style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>Upon arrival we noticed a marked increase in the number of workers in the town.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>When questioned the shopkeepers stated that 15 of the workers returned yesterday.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>We went in search of one of them and found him within a few minutes of asking around.</font></font></span></p> <p

needed anymore as most of the work was done and would be gated back home tomorrow morning.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>He said that five of us would be needed for about another week to finish up the remaining work and asked for volunteers.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>At that moment, Lady WildStar appeared and said that there would be a feast tonight and that five single men should stay behind as we had been away from our families long enough and thanked us for our hard work.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>We had roasted pig, barbecued chicken and beef, the third best cookies I have ever eaten – my mom and wife being first and second – and plenty of ale, cider, wine and liquor.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>We were gated back to the bank mid-morning yesterday and paid the remaining gold pieces we were owed for our work, which was 15,000 gold.” <o:p></o:p></font></font></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span

the city.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>We recalled on the rune that Oriana marked after our previous encounter with Mr. Runeblade and headed north.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>As we came upon were we had seen the men working before, we noticed one change right away – the name on the building had changed.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>It was now called “The Ethereal Travel Inn &amp; Rune Library”.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>No one was around, so we went inside and noticed that work appeared to be about half way done – the furniture was in place but runebooks were missing or incomplete.</font></font></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><font face="Times New Roman"><font size="2"><input
