Night of the Werewolves XXIX: Hired Swords Night had already fallen, the members of the Company were asleep. Their victory over the Illians had been achieved, but it was a harsh battle and the men had deserved their rest. As far as most of them were concerned, the mission was finished and all that was left for them was the long road home. One of them did not sleep, though. Paulus the Captain was still watching the city burn in the distance, comtemplating his deeds. This contemplative moment was interrupted by the cold steel of a weapon being pressed against his back. “So. The rumours I heard of betrayal were true then. " The cloaked man behind him hissed. “You know what I want.” “I fear I no longer have what you want. I took heed of the whispers, gave them to people I trusted, and made sure they’ll get them home. The full Company deserves reward for this victory. Not just you, nor your conspirators. And the men’ll rip you to shreds for what you are planning to do.” The cloaked man replied, “They’ll never know.”. Then, he thrust the weapon forward, skewering the Captain. While Paulus died, the cloaked man disappeared in the night. ... Day gave two unpleasant surprises for the men. Not only had the Captain been murdered, the horses had been poisoned during the night as well! The grim conclusion was reached pretty fast. There were forces at work from inside the Company, working against them all. In a desperate move, they decided to execute one member of the Company each day whom they thought to be working against them. A vote would be held to find the untrustworthy. Also, someone had to take the Captain's place as leader of the Company. There would be a vote on that as well. The Company was facing the greatest trouble ever. Updates Morning, day 1: The Captain is found murdered and the horses are dead. The Company has a long, long walk to go.
