We went and saw the Duke, Jacob Necroy, today. His chambers were… oddly decorated to say the least. Cyrus, being Cyrus, mentions the necromancy he sees and brings up polite conversation about it. I don’t know what gets into him anymore and I don’t even bother asking at this point. Cyrus will do whatever he feels like at the time he gets the notion to. Anyway, Necroy did say that Sebastian could look at the records and that he would send them over later. We thanked him for his time, but then he invited Cyrus to a private conversation to which Cyrus happily accepted. The rest of us, until Mark got impatient, were waiting outside. Cyrus came out and shared a little about the conversation and then mentioned how he gave Necroy a blood sample to work with. Blood contaminated with lycanthropy… What’s the worst that could happen?
To top this off, Mark and Cyrus went at it. Mark seemed really upset with Cyrus for trusting someone who deals in necromancy so easily and he took off. I waited up at the bar for a good bit of the night but he never returned, so I ended up searching the town for him. It was not until I went to look outside of the village did I hear his music and eventually see the tiny hut by the lake. I knocked on the door and asked him if he was alright and if I could join him. After reassuring me that he’s fine and letting me stay I entered the hut. Hopefully sleep will come quickly tonight.
