Anshelm and Tiberius experience some difficulty returning to Dachau along the road. During that trip they encounter three tolls, each of which would cost them a silver piece. However, when Anshelm attempts to demonstrate the merchant’s guild insignia (Tiberius has his writ of passage), he’s questioned at length, as these same guards remember Ells (who is familiar to them) showing them the patch, but not Anshelm. This requires some clever lying (for which I don’t see the value in roleplaying out). Nevertheless, our pair manage to return to the city by six bells.
As they are let into the town gates, well before curfew will close them for the night, they overhear two guards:
First Guard: Another one?
Second Guard: Yes, early this morning.
First Guard: And hacked to death, just like before?
Second Guard: Just like before.
First Guard: Who was it this time?
Second Guard: Joseph Mizer. The bastard.
First Guard: Serves him right.
