Posted By: Michael LoySomething important has been stolen away. What is it? A precious treasure? A merchant, traveling between steadings? More and more of the steading's livestock? A child? A family?
And this is a completely innocent question, but what - if anything - are you carrying that is made of iron?
So what are they saying around town, about the theft? Who has been putting about that there will be a reward for the safe return of, ah, whatever was stolen? Whoever it is, the reward will be generous, but only as measured by that person's means.
Is there a shrine to Laug in Knock (or in the fort), or is it a town still fully steeped in the old ways? How far north from here is Laug's Wall?
Now that you're here, what is the very last sign of civilization that you saw while coming up into these hills?
Posted By: Michael LoyIf there was a merchant, he wasn't necessarily alone. He could be a family man, a son or two coming along to learn the trade and help load and unload, all of them missing?
You know the steadings around here, Bucan. Whether iron's been stolen or not, where does it usually come from? This is bog iron, you can dig it up out of marshes in rough, ugly chunks. What steading does business in the stuff, mining it, gathering it, whatever the word would be?
