Our players gathered at the Drowning Swan Tavern in Hren in response to an ad calling for adventurers. They gathered in a back room with Jakob Ebner to discuss some minor details of the job. Most signed contracts right away.
As the group began to leave the tavern, several locals assaulted them for no clear reason. The tavern folk seemed to focus their attacks towards Gerald. The party defended itself, killing many of the attackers in the process.
Seeing they were defeated, a few of the assailants fled the scene. Players used this as an opportunity to quickly head to Jakob’s ship and set sail up the coast, towards Company Town.
