The party spends the day plotting to rob the city’s tax wagon, and ultimately succeed in a not too elaborate, not too violent ambush, while the rest of the city rushes off to enjoy the Geheimnistag Eve childrens’ parade. On the way back, Adelyn notices a group distributing fruit in a slightly unusual manner, and retrieves a lone pear they leave behind. They gather back at the Templar’s Arms to count their takings and are disappointed to discover it’s mostly pennies. Odric goes out to distribute these to the children in the parade, eventually noticing that some of them seem to be disappearing. He catches someone in the act of snatching a dazed child and arrests what later turns out to be a woman who looks very, very much like a large, burly man. At the same time, a clue to the child’s sudden stupor comes from Adelyn tricking Willow into trying some of the found pear, which almost knocks the halfling out. The party keeps an eye on the rest of the parade, and it’s clear that many children have gone missing, but nothing else is learned. Their prisoner is also little help, and so she is turned over to the High Wizard. Her dagger has a symbol that looks like a green scepter on it, which checks with Josef suggest might have some connection with some uncertain entity known as ‘Jade Scepter’.
