The next day, everyone comes to work. Clarion rearranges the basement as a temporary shooting range to test her newly built crossbow. It pierces well. Unfortunately, one bolt goes astray sets off a poison bomb. Clarion declares that the basement is off limits for the day.
Yish apologizes for trying to force Marda to drink the potion; Marda hangs on to her resentment and declares that it will take time for Marda to forgive him.
For now, the party knows that Vallan is all right, that the princess frequently runs off, and that no one is currently trying to kill them.
Nen Wess has a job for the day: Farmers are complaining about a boar digging up their fields. Yish whispers to Clarion to see whether the trick she used on the hoar foxes would work on the boar. Clarion whispers back that she has the traps but isn’t sure how well the traps would work on the boars; after all, the hoar foxes acted rather stupidly. Clarion then asks Marda what she knows about boar. Marda reports that boars are rather fast and surprisingly strong. Apparently, people like to eat boar meat, although Marda disapproves of killing animals. At this, Clarion can’t resist making a joke (about “hamboargers”); Marda glares back disapprovingly.
Clarion then goes back down into the basement to grab the traps, but she quickly comes back up declaring that she couldn’t hold her breath long enough. Hnng takes a few steps down but accidentally takes a whiff of the poison and passes out, falling the rest of the way down the stairs. Leaf goes down and grabs Hnng (Hnng forgot to sign his non-resuscitate contract). Marda and Lilith manage to grab one small trap each; Yish grabs a large trap. After Hnng wakes up, he retreats to his office, locks the door behind him, and heals himself. He then comes out pretending that he is still hurt, although both Marda and Yish are aware that he is faking. Neither call him out on it.
Yish notices interesting marks in the ground and searches his knowledge regarding “Copyright Wizards of the Coast”. Yish remembers that “Copyright” is also inscribed into his sapphire. Apparently, there was a renowned group of wizards in L’lanon called the “Wizards of the Coast” (apparently, L’lanon is somewhat close to the coast). “Copyright” was the name of the group. Many years ago, the Copyright had left the region, although this forest used to be where their court was. That is why the marks in the ground are burned in by magic and remain to this day. That also explains why there are rocks around, which, as Marda notices, were not hewn by hand.
The party then gets back to their task. Leaf notices that there is more than one set of tracks that are quite recent. One set goes on direction around a group of trees; the other goes the other direction. Clarion begins setting up the bear trap by one set of tracks. Leaf then climbs up a tree to see what he can see. Leaf sees a crap-ton of stuff. Hnng begins to wander away from the group, but Yish catches up quickly and commands him to get back. Hnng is bitter and begins to sulk around a nearby rock (although his attempt to climb up on it was unsuccessful).
Marda discovers a boar first and decides to attempt to calm it. However, she can’t get close enough to cast her spell; so she stands next to a nearby rock, hoping that the boar didn’t notice her. As she gets near the rock, she notices a second boar next to the first one she spotted. Unfortunately, the boar charges her and yells out for help; her desire to save the boar has gone down significantly. Leaf slides down the tree like Tarzan and begins rushing towards Marda’s screaming. Marda pulls out her trident, no sympathy left for the creature, and strikes her attacker. Clarion jumps up on the fallen tree only to find two boars. She runs swiftly away, warning Leaf of the danger. Leaf uses this new knowledge to attack one of the boars. Leaf misses his target and is staggered from the momentum of the axe. Clarion slaps the boar with her magic-enhanced metal-transforming scarf (now the size for a normal human). Hnng punches the boar in the anus; it squeals at Clarion as it dies (Hnng thinks that his punching dagger is sexually satisfied). Leaf falls unconscious as the boar lands a blow on him; Lilith lands the killing blow on both the remaining boars (after Yish dealt serious damage with his sickle).
Marda, now desiring to make use of the fallen boars, begins butchering them. The party then tell the farmers about killing the boars, and the farmers invite them for dinner. The party get mutton stew with potatoes. Lilith’s butter knife keeps on getting knocked off the table throughout dinner. The party then returns to the city at midnight.
The following morning, the party tell Nen that they completed the boar job.
