Weak hit: +1 Momentum.
Haf his determined, but he has no hint of what to do. He and Ithela are preparing to use blood-divination to find out more, when a guard summons the Captain to the palace of Sir Alban Kinry, the English governor of Roca Larga.
Kinry is a [oracle: jealous and stubborn] man. He tells Haf he has his sister and sailors. The men will be immediately returned but, before freeing Miranda, he has a small favour to ask.
[goal oracle: Travel to a place]
He must go to a nearby island, only a couple of days away [a Troublesome journey], and must do so in total secrecy. A newly arrived Danish ship that nobody knows is perfect and the Rebis seems swift and well-armed. They will leave the next day. Kinry will only stay at his destination for one day: they will be back in less than one week. Haf can only agree to this “proposal” (I mark 2 progress on the new vow) and the governor can be a useful ally for the future. Haf’s men are immediately freed and they confirm that they and Miranda have been treated well.
