In the morning Carric Featherfall heads to the market to see if his family heirloom has been fenced. He eventuall finds his way through the busy square to a greasy looking dwarven merchant who sell gems, jewellery and artisitc items. He does indeed have the amulet and is willing to sell it back for 1200 gp. In exchange for a small down payment he agrees to hold on to it for 2 weeks before offering it to other customers.
Shortly thereafter the party goes to collect it`s reward; Gauntlets of Ogre Power and 180 gp to split as Mikir the Noble wishes (the only original member). Carris Adolan then mentions the 100 gp Duncan stole. Mikir the Noble is not held responsible for the rogue`s actions, but does generously give back some of the money.
Inquiring about the possibility of more work the part is told of two potential jobs: reclaming the town’s silver mine from humanoids or venturing to the abandoned Kincep manor to help a townsman lay claim to his title and lands. A reward of 2% of the mines silver production for 6 months is offered for the former job and 1200gp each for the latter. The party eagerly decides to follow the money, especially Carric Featherfall.

After a short couple days of travel through the winding hills the party arrives at the gates of the abandoned estate. A man approaches the other side of the gate and who claims that the road is blocked and to meet him around back so he can help them enter.
Walking around the hedge surrounding the estate the pasty hears screams and animalistic snarls. As they push their way through the hedge they find the man they were previously talking to being attacked by an enormous wolf. Jumping to the rescue the oarty is shocked to discover it is a trap as the man attacks them with his wolf companion. After the large wolf is slain the man transforms into a wolf himself and flees towards the forest.
Worried about the possibility of werewolf attacks the party cautiously makes their way to the manor house proper, a dilapadated structure in dire need of maintenance. Examination of the ground floor turns up little than a messy house and a blood strewn kitchen and dining area, fecal matter is on everything. Further examination reveals a woman in rough shape who claims she and several others from farms in the region had been kept captive as food and that the others have all been eaten already.
Reassured by the heroes that the ground floor is empty the woman reluctantly agrees to wait behind at the bottom of the stairs while the ascend. At the top landing they see two doors ahead of them and a very hairy man blocking the way. After a heated exchange about werewolves and what’s going on Malcom fires a ray of frost at the man who retreats behind one of the doors. An audible click is heard as the door locks behind him
Undeterred the heroes bust through the door only to fins a floating incorporeal figure quite upset at having his research disturbed. After a length discussion it is learned that the “ghost” is the original owner of the manor and he allows them to grab a portrait of himself, an old family tree and a book of lineage and heraldry to allow his ancestor to prove or disprove his heritage. Departing and leaving a stream of cusses at the “werewolf” upstairs the group heads back to town.

Arriving back in Black wall the party is rewarded by Mr. Kincep with 300gp each now and the rest promised to them after the records can be verified as authentic. A stream of protest is issued by the party but is ignored as the group is ushered out.
