Location: Stavanger, Rogaland
Weather: a gentle breeze is blowing from the northeast, from inland, with chilly weather and clear skies. Feels like 1.4 C.
This night, half the town's ships took out from the harbour, with perfect weather for making their way to England or the Low Countries.
Pandred and Embla are sitting in a tavern, the Greasy Cod, which is empty this evening of sailors or most everyone. However, they cannot help but see two men across the tavern, whom they are told came into Stavanger a week ago, covered with scars and having lost three companions in the woods. Since then they have been staying at Old Man Askjellson's house, healing so they say. To date, they've said nothing about the events that happened . . . but they is a rumour going about that these two men intend to go out again to search for their lost companions, and may be looking for others brave enough to go with them.
