Stanley arrives at the main gate of Sethayr in the early evening. Sethayr is the last town this far north, only villages beyond, and maybe this is his last chance.

He has been on the road for several days, sleeping in whatever shelter he could find. It is early spring and there is still a chill in the air, often touches of white on the ground in the early morning. Today it had drizzled with rain. Although it is fine but dull currently, his robes have not yet dried out and are chafing at his neck.

He is looking forward to some hospitality this evening. In answering a few questions at the gate to a guard that didn't really sound interested in his answers, another guard responded when he said he did not reside in the town, enthusiastically recommending an inn called The Way Out. The guard told him where to go. Following the directions, he walked up Castle Way, a cobbled road that presumably led to the castle he could see silhouetted against the pale mauve twilight sky. At the intersection with Market Road, also cobbled, he turned left as instructed eventually finding the Market Square, just a few straggling traders packing up their wares, most having departed by now. There were others around, most had their heads down and were presumably hurrying home.

There are two taverns on the square, the Market Tavern and the Sword & Shield, both open for business but neither bearing the name he had been given. By now he is almost tempted to go in one of them but according to the guard his destination is close now. He can see woods at the top of the square and as he turns into Pond Lane, there is a large pool that likely gave the lane its name. Ahead and on the right he can see The Way Out, a freshly painted sign declaring its identity.

Stanley pushes through the door and heads straight for the bar. Oblivious to any conversation that may have been taking place, he sits upon a stool with a sigh. It's a small sigh that belies his actual weariness, a weariness that starts with the damp of his robes and seeps straight to the marrow of his bones.

Placing on the bar a coin pouch heavier than a vow of poverty would seem to allow, he pushes back his sodden hood and utters a single word, "Mead."

The bar is fairly quiet, about half a dozen patrons mostly sitting on their own, one has just had his evening meal delivered. There is a fire giving both warmth and a rosy light to the inn. The barman is currently wiping a tankard.

There was a reason the barman wasn't a betting man, and the tavern's latest customer was one example why. "Mead?" he replied. "Right you are."

He poured a cupful, maybe half a pint, of amber liquid, still rather than sparkling and with more than a hint of honey in its aroma.

"Here you are," he said as he passed the cup across the bar top. Then he named a price that was quite reasonable

Stanley

Stanley lifted the cup to his lips and in a single gulp nearly drained it. Returning it to the counter with a thud he fished a gold coin from the pouch and pushed it toward the barman.

"And a room?"

The barman didn't blink at the sight of the gold coin, which was orders of magnitude more than the cost of the mead. Not that he was familiar with the phrase 'orders of magnitude'.

"A room? Certainly. Another?" he asked, gesturing at the now-empty mead cup. "Maybe some food?"

Zach


Ambling out into the main room through the kitchen, Zach paused and his eyebrows perked upward as he spotted the unusually dressed stranger at the bar. He was not a member of any order Zach knew of, he thought, not dressed like that.

He moved over to the bar.

"Good mead, huh?" he asked, smiling at the newcomer.
