The weather is still cold, but it’s slowly getting warmer with Spring well on its way. The day light hours are as long as those of the night, but the nights are getting shorter. In the Wellsorrow Region, the Shadowfell despair is fading in its cycle. The people of Ashbourne and surrounding areas are feeling happier and it’s easier to shake the despair, and harder to fall under its influence. There is a half moon in the night sky tonight.

Shadowfell Despair Check: DC 9/15

Rosana nodded. “I’m looking for a boy about sixteen. Half elf who creates a very special elixir that apparently he brews from Boggle oil. You wouldn’t know where any boggles are?”

Miranda shook her head. “What’s a boggle?”

Rosana giggled, and Miranda placed her hand on top of hers. The slim fingers of the other woman’s hands embraced hers. Her thumb caressed the top of her hand. Warmth blossomed in Rosana’s body. “A boggle is a magical creature that likes to make mischief around areas that are full of despair and melancholy. They would thrive this close to the Leech and the Shadowfell.”

Miranda gave a slight nod. “What else do you know of them?”

“Not much.” Rosana said. “I have friends who might know. A bit of a retailer of information if you’d like.”

Miranda nodded. “Perhaps we should skip out the back here, look for my husband as he ran off after a thief that way and then we can go ask.”

“Your husband?”

Miranda patted Rosana’s hand. “Oh yes, but don’t let our union alarm you. He completely understands.”

Rosana’s eyes were wide, there had been flirting and now consequences of marriage. Confusion swept over her. But the dire need to seek the boy was too great, and Miranda seemed like a good resource. Even if she was a bit of a… there was no good word for what she thought of a woman who used her wiles to get her way.
