So, I'm back in the burned-out town of Archet, presumably looking for Amdir the ranger but really just looking for jobs that pay well and don't violate the laws of nature and common sense.
I'm actually kind of curious what happened to the guy, but my real priority is earning enough money to buy myself some exotic clothes like I see the fancy folks wearing. I noticed I made a lot of money when I was working for humans, and I'd like to get my hands on some more of that sparkly human coin.
Archet looks much the same as when I left it a couple of weeks ago. It's a burned-out shell of a town full of sadistic yokels and surrounded by bloodthirsty robbers.
Remember Jon Brackenbrook? No? Well, you're not missing anything. I stop in and ask if he's heard anything about what happened to Amdir. He hasn't, but it turns out he has a message for me. He tells me to go to the Inn in Combe and meet with "someone." He acts like this is all hush-hush secret stuff, although I can't imagine anyone who would care. Heck, the message is for me, and I barely care.
In any case, I'm off to the next town.
