The characters have moved on after their stay at the farm. A wood stands between them and the nearest settlements. Opting for the north path they find themselves in Wayfarer’s Inn, which could scarcely be called a settlement. Broke, with no place to stay the characters were taken in on a farm where they worked forking hay and entertaining at the inn until they were able to earn some coin. This arrangement was reach after they successfully rescued the farmer’s dog.
On a tip from the Priest at Wayfarer’s Inn the characters travel to Cathedral City where they speak with Bishop Ferdinand in hopes of using the cathedral library, one of the best in the land. He stubbornly refuses to allow them access, so magical coercian is used to reach an agreement. The characters part of the bargain is that they will find and kill a “heretical witch” practicing at a stone circle in the alpine area south of the cathedral. In addition Ferdinand asks that the characters report the names of the congregation members in attendance during the Sabbat. With some difficulty the characters are able to overcome the witch and report their findings. The Bishop rewards them with a scroll.
