"Leroy is correct.  Eventhough these men a bigoted and hateful they do not deserve death for being manipulated by an evil creature.  But I agree we cannot just kill it in front of them.  We have to get it away and make it disappear."

Even being relatively new in town, there are a few sources of faerie lore available to you:

The Dismal tower, home of sages, will require cash,
Twilight House, home to Shadow elves, may require performing a favor, definitely some finessi gand probably an invitation.. or a way to bypass one.
Hyacinths Hoofprints, a fey friendly tavern, which will require navigating etiquette like the othrrs, and buying a few rounds...

"Why don't we find some aid, if we can among our folk. I know a place where we might find some information, and maybe even, some help. Why don't we go to Hyacinth's Hoofprints?"

Heading east of the sun, west of the moon, until you come upon an oldcwoman selling apples. You greet her, buying an apple each, (1 copper total) and you follow her shadow to a small door where you can hear music. The hanging tabard shows a flower and two cloven hoofprints.

What is the name on the door? Cloven as in Faun, not cloven as in demon, right? I assume there is a difference...

There is no written name, but the woodwork is elaborately carved, and the metal, where seen is all bronze; there is no iron to be seen.
You can hear several instruments playing; panpipes, a hautbois, a lute, and a harp. there is the sound of dancing and clapping as well.

Within, there are a variety of odd yet oddly familiar folk. Some have pointed ears, a few are small and winged, some have goat legs. One of the musicians is a faun, one a bat faced goblin, one an elf of some kind, and one is an incredibly good looking man who is hard to look at, yet fascinating at the same time.

"I know this place has better drink than the poor ale, and young wine, at the Wastrel's Hope. Come on!"
Leroy getting in the mood, says mirthfully.

The owner and bartender, a fine looking faun, is carrying a tray of mead to a table where a lichenous moss dwarf and a pale elf with faintly luminous skin are sitting watching the musicians.

When the owner returns, Leroy will order and start a conversation about what's been going on, and purist troubles.

"Sure. Why though, just iron? Silver not a problem?" She takes the crossbow bolts and hangs the quiver on a hook after getting her answer.

When she gets back she will ask for a juice...

Marcus hangs his quiver on a peg and leans his bow on the wall under it.  He unsteaths his long knife and sets it next to the bow.

Leroy sheds his suit of scale, and his axe, and his baselard.
He does retain his targe, which is wooden, covered with hide, set with brazen tacks and a brazen boss. His warclub, which is carved from a tree root, hangs from his belt.

The collection of fey creatures seem pleased with this, and silver is fine here.
You note a variety of staves and spears from pixie size up, set with flint or bronze, and a few items made of crystal, silver, or mage metal. A hooded man with a raven's face is at a table, drinking with a sea elf, and the door is being watched by a large creature with the face of an owl and a thick pelt like that of a bear.
 It definitely does not seem to be a summer court creature.

"Hey, why should we do all the fighting? Lets ask around if anyone knows about what you saw, Rosewood."

She will approach the creature with a ravens face.

"Sir, how would you be today? Mind if we chat?"

Rosewood is silent for a time.
He is very very reluctant to say what the creature was.  Or what he think it was.

Just before the group get to the tavern.  He says in a low voice.

I think it was a Swamp Hag.  I not seem one close up before but.
From the books I studied.  That want it seemed to be.


Rosewood is not very comfortable with going into the tavern and tries to say behind Leroy du Lac and out of site.  He clearly tries to keep away from anything that looks like another pixie.

Listening to Rosewood, Leroy 's eye widened.
"A swamp Hag, you say? Hmmm.. They despise everything beautiful, do they not?"
