I decide it might be time to change location, so I take my belongings and head out for a journey on the road. I try to find the nearest village and ask about the man I fought, keeping key details in mind of what he looked like, and a phrase he said that I didn't understand.

"Would you mind if I spent the night here in your village? I'll be moving along soon, but for tonight I need somewhere to stay. Also, is there anyone that you know of that might have more information on these Picts?"

"Only the Picts themselves, and from your first encounter, you probably don't want to try. Also, you can sleep in one of the barns"


oh BTW, you can get armed villagers from the village, i'll roll a D10, and they're 3 Shillingas to arm them

alright then, you are in the town of Dorce Ceaster, of the Briton populated, angle ruled tribe of the Gwissea. You wake up late in the morning in the tavern, leave after paying the bill and in the hustle of the morning you feel someone is following you in the muddy and unworked streets.
