The mercenaries rode into the small city just after sunset. Walking, it usually took about a day and a half, but on horseback it was just a day's journey. On the ride there, once the air had began to chill, Zira donned her cloak again to hide her race. Once they entered Hilt, the dark elf kept her head down, hiding under her hood.
As a traveler's hub, Hilt had plenty of inns, taverns, stables, and shops to choose from. However, they wouldn't look for one until they met up with Jeren. He had to find a place to land his wyvern. Zira would watch, but looking up would only reveal her.
Ryna examined the city stoically. Hilt held a lot of bad memories for Ryna, though it was also where she met Leaf, Garrack, and the others that she became so famous with. Five years ago, Randy died here. She brought him to Hilt after dark elves implanted an evil crystal in his chest, but when Grievas tried to heal him, the crystal turned Randy's body into a hydra that destroyed the fortress. The only way to stop it was for Randy to die. Now, the city didn't show a sign of the battle that happened that night and here she was, working with a dark elf.
