The prisoner’s clothes are rags that were once fine silks.
He takes them over to Unlimited Mercantile explaining on the way that Sam Berrydale has a large cellar with a few rarely used cells. The prisoner will be more than comfortable. The Mayor says that Aldo Swiftfellow must have seen the cells, which he has.
When they get there Sam leads them down to the cellar. It is obviously larger than the building above and has several areas that are curtained or doored off. Sam asks the Mayor if the group could stand guard on the prisoner and the Mayor tells them they should set a watch here, although they can sleep in their own beds when not on their watch if they want.
The prisoner manages to make a lute appear in his cell while Aldo sets up some traps around the room.
During the night they will have learned Blaeric’s name. He tells them a story about how he was a popular bard who sang the wrong song and got sent to the Wall undeservedly. He is fuzzy on the details and thinks he may have killed a guard trying to get away but it wasn’t his fault.
Before morning there is a giant rat attack from the tunnels. These enormous rats look bigger and more vicious than most dogs. They have coarse, spiky fur, malevolent eyes, and long, naked tails. Sam arrives just as it finishes up and gets the group to help him board up that particular tunnel. He won’t say where it leads but says it isn’t important right now.
Fightday, Week Three Phytonral, 1314 FR
The next day Mayor Wil has a cart ready for the party. It has a ring bolted to the bottom for the chains on Blaeric, and was pulled by two horses. There are also light horses for each of the others who wishes to ride. He also gives them a map of the countryside showing the hunting track that circles past the Wall and Storetregayte Prison and then swings back over near Weeton. It should get them to the prison with little to no contact with travelers.
They will need to camp four times and should arrive in Storetregayte Prison midday of Fleeday, Week Four Phytonral, 1314 FR, barring any delays. Blaeric will sing the whole way and the party feels bolstered by it all the way to the prison.
