"Thank you Tiggs. Now that I know I have a place to return to I believe I'd like to explore on my own for a bit so as not to burden your hospitality too much. The Park of the Old Gods sounds promising, and I would like to move through the city in daylight as much as possible. Is it easy to find?"

"Aye. Return back near the front gate on Central Avenue. When you get to the Workers' Way, turn right. Go past The Square, and when you get to the intersection of Water Road, it will be right in front of you.
"If you wish, you may return here for dinner. I would be honored to to share my table with you."
Verrella stands up. "Father, I need some cumin and cilantro for our fowl tonight." She turns to you. "I am going to The Square to my favorite herb shoppe. Though you wil be travelling beyond that, but you may accompany me that far, should you wish."
"Everyone needs a good protector. I am pleased to meet you Gomm." Aconitus reaches out shakes his hand/paw. "True, I am not from the city but rather would like to learn more of it for my village. Tiggs and Verella here have been such good hosts to me since I arrived, I couldn't ask for better. Are there many of the bear-folk here in the city? It seems the alleys and roads might feel a bit, ah, constraining."

"Most of my people are not fond of urban living. But I like the variety that life has to offer."
The three of you make your way back to Central Acenue, where you retrace your initial steps. Along the way, your companions say little. When you get to the Workers' Way, you turn right and find yourself in even more dense traffic. The ursan hovers near Verrella protectively, and you watch your own back.
Aconitus looks around uncomfortably, wondering how the feel of a place can change so quickly in so short a distance. He gets the sense something may not be right, but his senses are overwhelmed by the sheer number of people.
"Well, no one will see this in the dark," Aconitus thinks to himself. He makes a few hand gestures from memory and mumbles a few words in the confusion "Tuo esiin susi" (Bring forth the wolf). A friendly "woof" lets Aconitus know he succeeded. He leans down to the wolf and says "Protect the goblin girl."

You are blind but you sense through the perception of the wolf, by the bond you have with summoned creatures. It bounds away and leaps over the fallen form of the ursan to land beside Verrella. Though you cannot see, you can smell through the wolf's nose four figures moving purposefully through the dark. Toward Verrella, as you feared...
