A caravan from The Grand Market journeys east to the kingdom of Lastwall and stops at The Wizard’s Princess, a beautiful inn on the border of the sullen nation. Three young scouts from the Market meet with two foreigners and are assigned a job. Yulie tells A, Gerecht, Propheria, Rogenbogen, and Sehk’met to stop a local bandit for the good of the caravan. The adventurers travel to the thief’s hideout, realize he’s already been murdered by mites, kill the evil fairies and their giant spider, rescue some kids, find a duck, read an enigmatic threat, and get some treasure. Rogenbogen will never get over or live down her painful and ridiculous encounter with a spider swarm.
