Arriving back in the city of Barrowtown (home to House Crondalia) Aid with the help of Malcolm managed to escape unnoticed from Darials grasp, fleeing to a nearby Cathedral to meet with Trap and give the Stranger a life so that he may be repaired. Meanwhile Dariel went to speak with his father about recent matters, only to get berated for his recent failures. Aid discovered that the Stranger would not accept the payment of just any soul , he needed a payment worthy of his greatness Aid took this to mean Lord Winsor Crondalia, so she sent Trap to scout out the building to learn where the Lord’s bedchamber was. Trap barely managed to escape Heinrich and gave the information to Aid who attempted to sneak into the manor but was quickly caught by household guards and thrown into prison. In the morning she was brought before Lord Winsor who to both Dariel’s and Aid’s bafflement he spared her and spoke to each in private before sending them off to fight a group of wandering tribesmen.
