The party decide to buy an inn, as a front for future smuggling and fence work. Adelyn initially tries her luck with the Drowned Rat’s owner, Fritz, but when she returns, she finds Willow (who’s bought a wolf and needs somewhere willing to keep it) has already begun negotiations with Uli Breitner, owner of the Templar’s Arms Inn, where they’re staying. A group effort succeeds in bringing the price down, on the condition that Uli retains ownership of the land (so they owe him monthly rent for that), he gets a cut of the profit, and the exchange is only effective from the start of the next month, allowing him to keep all the Carnival profit.
After this is settled, they go to watch the ice dancing again, looking for people worth talking to, when Alric has the sudden idea that he should privately confront the Ar-Ulric about his alleged affair. He manages enough tact that the priest confesses and tries to get Alric to help him foil the blackmailer, Elise Kaltblutig. To do this, the party works to get Emmanuelle Schlagen to talk to them, ultimately leading to an elaborate scheme whereby Adelyn, posing as a palace maid, spent an afternoon spying on Emmanuelle’s normal maid.
