Kroth Stonegrinder and his squire Lanseril Snowmantle rode hard both traveling to the mouth of the Dragansruth River in Lenfald and back. As Kroth and his squire returned to Havenhill he was intercepted by Lord Aldolphus’ sage, Agmund the Wise. Agmund tells Kroth that the Lady’s health has weakened and that he should take the Draganruth’s water straight to her. He suggests to Kroth that he should clean up and change his clothes before coming to see the Lord or Lady of the castle. After quickly washing his hands and face he hurries down to see if his mission was a success.
He finds the lady of the castle sitting up in her bed and saying, “Agmund while the effects of this cure are certainly remarkable and I feel better than I have in many a week, I wish the water was not so sour. I am not a fan of even lemons and this water sure tightens the back of my tongue like a mighty dragon would.”
After having traveled to the mouth of the Dragansruth River and had to deal with the smell of sulfur that even now has not completely gotten out of his armor, Kroth knows that Agmund did not give the Lady of Castle the water that returned with, even if he did not notice that the container that Agmund was using was not the one he had carried for some many miles. Not wanted to let on that something might be amiss and certainly happy that Lord Aldolphus’ wife is doing better, Kroth smiles and fades back into the background, but he will be watching Agmund the Wise with a renewed interest.
