Part 87: 1336: Hofstaring's Expedition

Dammit! Fine, be that way. No assistance for you, misbegotten Blue Jays.

Although none of our warriors died, six weaponthanes were seriously injured in the scuffle.

I had let the fire season pass without raiding the Jenestni (whups!) so I'll make up for that in the storm season. For now, it's time to do some trading and some exploring.

While exploring in the mountains to the northwest, your people find a disused mineshaft. A hunch made Hofstaring take them a long way into it. As they descended into the depths, they heard sounds. Before proceeding much further, they decided to come back home for advice.

Investigate the sounds.

Perform a divination ritual.

Sacrifice to the gods for protection from the underground mysteries.

Sell the information to another clan.

Stay away.

How can we estimate the risk when we don't know what sorts of things are lurking in the mine?

It is a good day to perform a divination.

We could get six cows for this information.

Curiosity is like the alynx. If you do not scratch it under the chin, it will claw you.
