Stryx enters the tavern just as a fight is about to break out. Bo the barkeep is worried that the two groups will destroy is livelihood. Styx offers to diffuse the situation, and does so by talking some sense into the drunken strangers. Bo offers the blue-haired elf free food and a room in gratitude. During the meal, Stryx asks about Fletcher. Bo explains that Fletcher has been in the tavern quite a bit lately. Feverishly flipping through notes and maps and mumbling to himself, Fletcher hasn’t quite been himself. Bo mentions that he hasn’t seen Fletcher in the last day or so.
After leaving her belongings in the room, Stryx goes to Fletcher’s house. As she approaches, she realizes that no one is there, and the door is left open. She peeks in quickly to see that there has been some trouble here, and perhaps Veylon Fletcher is missing.
Stryx returns to the inn, and runs into Dib the stable boy who she asks to return to Fletcher’s house with a note telling Fletcher to come to the inn. Stryx retires to her room for the night.
