The raiders were proving to be more than we, the local militia and the Baron’s rangers, could handle. They struck without warning, sneaking into the villages and breaking into the houses to take what they wanted. Fleeing before the militia could turn out and they could be tracked only out to the edge of the fields and a bit beyond, but once the tracks hit the sandy riverbank they vanished.
Even the one who had been grievously wounded by a lucky arrow from Thom, we followed the trail of blood to one of the barns but inside . . . nothing, just a pool of blood and no body. Though Regs says that he say fox tracks leading out of the barn.
Boots of the White-Footed Fox
These boots are made of sand-colored leather and lined with fox fur and any buttons on them are made from carved fox bone. They are far more durable than they would appear.
