t is Sir Inagio, an enemy of the king, who speaks with the Earl of Landenshire. You fade back into the crowd as quickly as you can. It is difficult to keep an eye on the Earl, as people jostle you, try to sell you things, and generally mill about. You realize that you are hungry, so you spend two copper pennies on some bread and roasted meat. This also gives you an excuse to pull out of the main body of the crowd for a few moments to get your bearings. The Earl of Landenshire is still talking to Sir Inagio. There is no way you can get a private message to him.
You notice a horse nearby with the same emblazon on its saddle blanket as Sir Inagio's shield. The horse is saddled and looks like it has been readied its rider to enter the lists. Could it be Sir Inagio's turn to fight soon? You walk over towards the horse, picking up a handful of dirt and sand from the well trampled ground along the way. As you pass by the horses head you flick the dirt and dust into his face. The horse, which had been almost asleep, gives a start and the crowd jumps back. Sir Inagio looks over, says a quick good-bye to the Earl and hurries away to check on his horse. The Earl seems glad to be rid of Sir Inagio's attention and walks the other direction. You quickly catch up and tell him who you are and pass along your father's message.
that you have delivered your message to the Kings
most important allies, and you know where the battle is
to take place, you ride furiously to the aid of the King.
Your father only charged you with delivering the message
but he didn't exactly say not to go to the fight to try
to help. Of course, unarmed and unarmored you probably
can't do more than get in the way.
