Weeks passed and by some force not unlike fate, the knights, less one, found themselves together again at the home of a tetromancer.[6] Unfortunately, the tetromancer had recently passed away. Fortunately, the tetromancer's notes on the grail still remained.

Unfortunately, it had been tetromanced. Unfortunately, it had also been ciphered.

It is unknown what happened on the journeys of the other knights, but it is presumed that Sir SSTGio left to manage his merchant business.

Soon after, the knights came across 8 runes etched into the walls of the tetromancer's study that were most likely relevant.[7]

How they were relevant, however, wasn't immediately apparent or obvious.

Otherwise, they probably wouldn't have been noticed.

The runes glowed slightly.

Sir Nicho: Touch it. I dare you.

Sir Nicho nudged Sir HahiHa.

Sir HahiHa: Ladies first.
Sir Nicho: No, you.

Sir HahiHa slowly extends his arm, his hand nearly touching the etched runes... after hovering there for a few seconds his hand jumped back. Turning to Sir Nicho with a more uncertain than menacing grin, he hesited for a while.

Sir HahiHa: Y'know, maybe touching random glowing things is not the best idea... where is Sir Weird when one needs his passive hand the most? On the other hand, there must be a reason for this sorcery. I am, after all the bearer or a knightly wheel of bread; what evil can happen to me anyway??

Taken by a sudden elan, he thrust his hand against the runes; and his face immediately starts to glow with amazement:

Sir HahiHa: Wow. I... I.... hum. I definitely did not get an illumination. That is impossible! Maybe if I touch it with both hands?

Each runes began to transmute to an array of numbers.

Sir HahiHa: In each number table corresponding to one rune, there is always one letter hidden in combination with a number. Those are in order:

A2 - A7 - E0 - G9 - L1 - N2 - R9 - S1

It has to be some kind of key! Possibly an anagram can be found from the letters a,a,e,g,l,n,r,s. Sir Weird! Sir Nicho! Any ideas?

Sir Weird: No idea, admittedly I never tried to touch the runes. Now that I have I am more stumped then I was before :/

After many days of staring at letters, a breakthrough was made!

Sir HahiHa: So the letters aaeglnrs can be interpreted as an anagram of sangreal, or San Greal, meaning the Holy Grail!

Upon waking up Sir Weird the Tired looks around. His eyes adjusting to the ambiance which was reasonably bright, or so it seemed to Sir Weird. Unfortunately Sir Weird was somewhat disassociated from his world and seemingly did not know who he was.

Sir Weird:Huh, wa... who? Where am I...

I would appear that the other knights in search for the holy grail have left and Sir Weird was the only one lying about (which was not uncommon for Sir Weird the Tired). As Sir Weird propped himself up he looks over and with a bit of curiosity finds a passed out mule. He wouldn't have otherwise noticed the mule had the mule not let out a quiet and morbidly feculent odorous gas.

Sir Weird:Foul beast!

As Sir Weird had mistakenly inhaled the effluxing gas, his mind opened up and he had suddenly became fully aware.

Sir Weird:I am Sir Weird the Tired! This mule must have fallen over from intoxication, and in the act had subsequently knocked me over and I hit my head on that rock.

Sir Weird, with this misunderstood grasp of the current situation decided to binge rant on the specifics of his athleticism.

[roll 3d6 Strength]
[roll 3d6 Dexterity]
[roll 3d6 Endurance]
[roll 3d6 Focus]
[roll 3d6 Perception]
[roll 3d6 Willpower]
[roll 3d6 Beauty]
[roll 3d6 Charisma]
[roll 3d6 Confidence]

Sir Weird:I must find the other knights and know their abilities. For honor!

Sir Weird takes off leaving his stubborn mule behind and goes out in search for the remaining knights. Albeit his goal is searching for the holy grail he seems to have it in his mind that the combined collective intelligence of the Knights of Round will prevail and find the true holy grail.

Sir Hectic: Standing upon the road in the light morning fog he waits ideally thinking about how he misses his hole deep in the woods, this mail is so uncomfortable but seeing how the thing had taken another person to strap it onto him and he forgotten to his squire to drag along...or maybe the squire was left after being dazed from rummaging in his sack, Oh well he couldn't remember. That reminded the hermit of his breakfast, he pulls out a red cabbage and a bottle of brown ale. This cabbage was one of his more successful endeavors, a problem that came about when he found that he had no talent for hunting and the shortage of meat and overabundance of cabbage had lead him to create a bacon flavored vegetable.
