Back in Colm! For rest, relaxation, and research. I have found some very interesting information regarding the potential whereabouts of the next piece for the key to the Well of Stars. I found a record of the double sided hammer sigil in a list of Dwarven heraldry and linked its connection to the Broadhammer Clan, a family from the enclave of Dreskeden. Once a mighty family of adventurers and explorers but now the Broadhammers are nothing but an echo of their once proud past. Rivals and politics have brought this once mighty clan down to nothing. There are only a few left alive.
Though my research has kept me busy, there have been other events of note. There has been another Elf killed in town. We suspect it is the same uprising of Anti-Elf protest we dealt with before. We also hear talk of a row in Drake over rival family fortunes that is causing unrest in the city. Most disturbing of all, poor Crumple was attacked at the marketplace. He describes his attackers and we recognize the Half-Elf who ran off from Cragbreak Mine. I ask around and find that the Silver Horn headquarters are located just outside of town in a series of caves. This aggression against one of our own will not stand. We may have to visit those headquarters and see what this Half-elf has to say for himself…
Not much else to mention besides a particularly welcome visit from Miss Rosie Copperpot. She suggested some very helpful resources for research, and was very pleasant to talk to. I find I can be myself around her when we discuss books and things…but I still manage to embarrass myself in front of her quite often. She did thank me again for the scarf, I must remember to thank Zadok again for the idea.
