Rumours circulate throughout the inns and taverns of Suzail. It is said that the notorious House Hornbow hired a large group of adventurers to explore the ruins of Hilp. They were searching for the belongings of the deceased Rhona Hornbow, twin-sister of the former War Wizard and traitor to the realm, Sheona Hornbow.
The dozen or so adventurers were seen leaving Suzail in good spirits, but when they returned from Hilp, they marched straight for the War Wizard's tower instead of back to the Hornbow estate at the Field Gates. Duncan Hornbow and his guards soon showed up at the tower as well, and some say his furious shouting could be heard out in the street.
Duncan and all the adventurers then left the tower, and it's uncertain what, if anything, the adventurers may have found in Hilp. Rumours claim that they found proof that Rhona was just as bad, if not worse, than her treacherous sister. Others claim she was just an innocent woman with a love for books, who had studied at the Alizarin Academy. "Alizarin student? That's proof enough of her vileness, what did she do exactly?", "aye, Hornbow's got treachery in their blood, they're all rotten", two bystanders said, as Duncan and his guards hurried home.
While the truth remains as clear as Tunland water, one thing is certain: Duncan Hornbow does not want anything to do with such "mudslinging traitors" again.
Later that night, someone threw two dozen rotten eggs at the Hornbow estate.
