The Fall of Plaguestone

"Perhaps I shall ask around for a glassblower, one that makes the particular vial that we've found, or would recognize the handiwork? At this stage, any lead is a good one."

Feedmill (Delma, Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi, Galahad)

Delma gestured toward the stables. “Edra’s probably in the stable. She has a room here at the Feedmill,” she answered Silvi’s question. Then she looked to Lavinia. “There isn’t a glassblower in town. I stock glassware in the store, but if I need some, I order from Bort when he comes through,” she told the halfling. “But there isn’t much call for glassware like that around here. We’re mostly farmers.”

Galahad returned to the Feedmill to find Silvi, Lavina, and Hiromi with Delma by the stable.

Hiromi nodded and said, "Lavina, you can check the herb garden for the correct smells - I will talk to Edra."

And she walked into the stable and spoke to the stablemaster, asking her about her familiarity with Bort, speaking about what happened to him, and trying to get a sense of the woman, their history, and any possible motive. She was kind in her approach - at least at first.
 

Lavina nods, and departs for the herb garden.

Her cover story, which has the benefit of being true, is that she's a gourmand and interested in rare herbs & spices to expand her culinary repertoire, and has head great things about this place.

When Galahad returns, he notes that others had been busy at work in the inn he sits down, asking for a bit of lunch and is ready to relay his story to anyone who is working on the case. When shown the vial, he uses his test on it to confirm that it had contained the poison.

Feedmill (Delma, Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi, Galahad)

The Feedmill was closed, so Galahad had to scrape up what bread and cold meats and cheeses and turnips he could for lunch. The others could point out what was safe, for now. As long as he stayed away from the bowl of Bort’s porridge, he was fine.

Lavina poked around the garden. Delma just warned her to be careful, but no one was around the closed inn to protest. She didn’t find any of the sweet smell that she got from the poison. It seemed to be a normal herb and vegetable garden.

Hiromi found Edra inside the stable. The halfling was sitting in a corner working a large wooden pestle in a bucket. She continued working as Hiromi asked her questions about last night.

“Well, I was out here all night taking care of all of your horses,” she said, gesturing to the caravan’s horses that filled the stable. “Lots of them, so a lot of work for one halfling. You can ask Glunda. She was helping me. I heard the commotion when the fight started, and looked out the door. Saw Phinick run off out the back. Trin, too. She was holdin’ her cheek. Looked like there might have been blood. But I didn’t go nowhere near the food and don’t know anything about the poisoning.”

She returned to her work with the pestle before pausing and wiping her brow. “Look. All yer horses got the biting fleas, prob’ly from those mangy wolves you told me about. I got an ointment I’m makin’ up to help them, but I’m going to need about a bushel of rosemary if I’m gonna make enough for all of them. Think you could help me out? I know a spot in the woods where a bunch of rosemary grows, if you could collect a bunch for me.” She told Hiromi how to get to the rosemary bushes.

"Thank you for taking care of the horses. I will do my best to get you your rosemary," Hiromi told Edra sincerely, "But can you also tell me where I can find Phinick, and also perhaps Trin?"
 

"Hmf." Disappointed with her lack of leads, Lavina opts to meet up with the others.

She'll try talking to the halfling Edra, should she find her way there in time; try and converse casually, halfling-to-halfling, and get a little information out of her that way.

Edra shrugged as Lavina joined them. “Phinick sometimes sleeps here in the barn,” she said. “But he has other places around town. I don’t know where, though,” the halfling admitted. “Trin lives with her brother Marny on a small turnip farm on the southwest side of town,” Edra said, and gave directions on how to find the place. “And thank you. I’d really appreciate the help getting that rosemary for your horses. Any other questions? Or can I get back to work?” she asked, picking up her large wooden pestle.

“Well, I thank you, then,”
Edra told Livina with a smile, going back to pounding her rosemary paste for the horses.

Emerging from the yard, you can see Tamli carrying something long and awkward wrapped in burlap. She catches your eye and makes her way straight to you. “I have a little chore that needs to be seen to. Bort’s final delivery is here in town, and it needs to be done delicately.”

Tamli unwrapped the burlap to reveal a pair of sparring swords. “These need to get to a young woman named Pari Hemsoth,” Tamli said. “She lives with her mother in a farm about a mile outside town. It won’t be difficult to find,” she explained. “But there was a weird note on the order. It said make sure her mother doesn’t find out. I’ve still got so much to do with the caravan. Do you think you can make the delivery?”

Silvi beams. "Helping this Pari fulfill her dream of becoming a great warrior, or uh, whatever else her dream is, in the face of parental adversity would be right up my alley!" squeals the gnome, as she snaps out of whatever daydream she had been caught up in. "Maybe we can even knock off this rosemary business at the same time." She does not, of course, make a move for the swords. If Tamli found the package awkward it would be at least doubly so for her.
 

Hiromi nodded and took the swords. She absolutely related to the idea of getting away from one's parents to forge one's own destiny. If her own mother had had her way, Hiromi would have forever been a dancer, performing for leering men for money, most of which her mother would have kept for herself.

"Let's get this done!" she smiled at Silvi.

"Maybe I convince her to let me lull her to sleep the same way I did with Trevor," muses Silvi. "But that may require hearing her side of the story - I cannot in good conscience use such a blessing to hurt someone. Maybe she has a dream too."

Tamli handed the burlap-wrapped swords over to Hiromi. “I will leave the delivery to you, then,” the half orc said. “And remember, we can’t leave until we find Bort’s killer,” she said with a sigh. “I need to keep Olf and Ulf out of trouble while we kick our heels.”

"Let's get moving!" exclaims Silvi as she bounces off in the direction she assumes the Hemsoth home lies. "The sooner we get these little jobs done with the sooner we can get back to business," she says before adding, "But keep your eyes open - you never know when we might come across a clue!"
