Rayk Nillu, permitted to see his own township three days a month, returned to Hawk's Aerie today. Spectators, especially those present at the last conversation in Halo, expected sharp words-- But, oddly enough, the Baron simply took a large amount of money to the moneychanger and then went home to the Steward's Manor. All of this was done without noticing the numbers of people working on the township, or even that the guards had been replaced with those of his cousin. Is it lassez-faire, or lazy? The Marchioness Nillu had no comment, other than, "I'm betting on the blue one, you know. It's a good color, you can't go wrong with it."
