The party that headed to Rider’s End for Jedarkka’s funeral did get some shopping done and sold Excalibur to the Mages University for re-stoning as Snæfellsnes had lost his desire to be king. Thom took a teleport to Moon Run and did some further shopping, while Imiriel and Koda headed that direction on horseback. Snæfellsnes stayed for his sister-in-law’s funeral and to spend as much time with his family as he could before he was needed in Moon’s Run. At the end of the week, he had the University teleport him to Moon’s Run.
It wasn’t long before he ran into Thom, conning people out of a few silver on the street with sleight of hand games. Thom began to take Snaefelsnes to the Purple Crayon tavern where the others were staying. Very quickly though he noticed they were being followed. The two split up and disappeared into the crowd. The figure that was following them looked confused for a moment and then headed off. Thom followed him to the Purple Crayon, but promptly lost him as he darted around a corner. Thom headed into the tavern to wait for Snæfellsnes.
Snæfellsnes did find the tavern eventually and was stopped by an old elf whom Snæfellsnes offered to buy a drink, though Snæfellsnes was wary of the stranger who was approaching just after he had lost a mysterious tail. Rightly so, as the elf stabbed him just a few seconds later. Snæfellsnes began to hack at the assassin, who after sustaining some serious injuries, ran around the corner of the building. Thom came out to see what the commotion was, and took out the assassin with a final blow as he was trying to escape over the roof.
