A simple, tongue-in-cheek poster is spread around Krofburg. A few make it down to Vallaki.

THE MINER'S MERRIMENT: TRAVELER TALES I
By the Satyrist

֎      ֎      ֎

Once upon a time, there were three travelers. One man was quiet and sly. Another, bumbling and anxious. And the third was a cocky fourteen-year-old who had managed to afford himself a suit of armor. They had some parcels to deliver to a tavern in the mountains.
They arrived at the tavern in the morning, and with them, they brought a 'pet' dire wolf. The patrons were terrified! Everyone screamed and shouted, and the beast vanished in a flash of magic. The bartender told them to get out, but the fourteen-year-old was clever, and had the perfect retort:
'No, you get out!'.
The bartender rushed to fetch the guards as the group made themselves comfortable, as though they hadn't just caused an uproar. When he returned, they had left, but they soon came back. They'd made certain to track mud all over the floor. The fourteen-year-old loudly insulted the establishment, saying that it 'reeked', and that it was a 'dredge'. But in the same breath, he insisted that he had not disrespected the tavern.
He instructed his bumbling companion to wipe his shoes on the stuffed bear. Thankfully, his companion did not comply, and swiftly departed. All of them followed.

The moral of the story, children, is this. If you come to do business in a place, it's probably not very bright to insult the people who are paying you, and to make a mess in their 'house'. They likely have more connections than you do, and that could land you in very hot water indeed!
Or a ditch.

֎      ֎      ֎

By the by, word's gotten to me that these men are bandits, and done ambushed a goods courier, and robbed a knocked-out woman on the road.
If you'd like their names and descriptions, come along to the bar!
