He of course didn’t know it at the time, but he did know he had located the local thieves guild. As he was walking out the door he noticed a small crumpled paper by one of the empty stools:

The hero took a few minutes to sit down, relax, meet the Katta’s wife, eat some food and get to the know the two strange creatures and found out that one of their old friends was in town:

With the entire valley at his disposal Danar decides to wander a bit, to get his bearings, eastward first:
That must be the path out of here that everyone was saying is impassable during the winter, which apparently started early in just this screen? Seepgood heads back to town and goes south this time:
Ah! Some sort of target practice ring… Sadly, these low lying bushes are completely impassable to even the best adventurers (a quick fix really you go south from this screen, then north and end up back here but in front of the target, don’t ask…)

Your skills increase by using them, and the only thing that prevents you from using your skills are your stamina and health points which will slowly drain as you practice your various skills. Perseii throws a few more rocks before resuming his exploration, behind the town he finds:
There is some sort of plant here but Jackson is suspicious of its slimy, poisonous sheen and leaves it for now.
