Eotenweard - Hospitality (1/5)
The heroes arrive at the village of Aethelburh and are granted hospitality by its grim Lord, but their arrival seems to trigger a supernatural event to which one of them is tied by their previous life. There’s an unquiet spirit, an inquisitive chicken and a secret hinted at … then Woden and a Fae Lord take different degrees of interest while the Christ God turns their face away …

Eotenweard - Hospitality (2/5)
Hild confronts Bardwulf, the Lord of Aethelburh, while Cennus ensures proud thane Madog will honour the debt he owes him if called to do so. Meanwhile, Eadric and Gildas visit the tracherous ravine where Bardwulf’s first wife met her untimely end and seek answers from her unquiet spirit. There’s the feast of Blodmonath, a failed attempt to retrieve a moonstone, and tensions that almost turn violent at the wedding feast … and then there’s an ambush …

Meanwhile, the local smith casts weapons of bronze for Cennus, the Sword of God, and Eadric the Commoner. Gildas the Fae Changeling is already so armed for what they all expect to be a conflict with a Fae Lady over the fate of an unquiet spirit. There’s a haunted ancient hillfort, the ghosts of Rome, and a pack of wolves … then … a descent into darkness … and a chicken with an unerring sense of direction …
