The group is back in The Crossed Hammers. With a few coppers in the pockets, they head to the trade district to find some gear. They get rope from a rope maker and ask if they can find anything for the maker. He tells them about an unbreakable strand of hair found 3 days to the east and north by a pond in the forest. If they bring him enough, he’ll make some special rope and sell it at discount to them.

Leo has taken the daughter and informed the Street Artists Sara will remain safe as long as they produce no art critical of Leopold.
