    The Windmill Inn is a traditional small town inn, with "bigs" and "littles" public rooms for the local humans and halflings to self-segregate. It's larger than most, though, jammed with stevedores and drovers in muddy boots trading stories about Thieves Paradise or the Packsaddle Pass.

    The busy innkeeper finds a few rooms for the party and produces as a meal of passable quality and tremendous quantity, as the drovers prefer it. The beds are of the same quality but rather small, the better to fit in more closet-like rooms.

    In the morning, over a similar breakfast, Nessa returns with no follow-up message from the Prince. Not much longer, Lane appears to escort the group to the distillery.

    "Calpurnia Foxglove runs the distillery," he says. "The Foxglove family own the place and when she didn't show an inclination to marry she inherited it, I suppose. Most of the employees are halflings as well, even when they aren't Foxgloves."

    The large brick barn-like building lies to the north end of town; it's easy enough to hitch a ride with one of the wagons headed that way to load up.

    Edward hums and asks, "what's she like? Professionally, I mean," as they walk towards the distillery, some distance away. He'd be able to get a read on her personally when he met her, but learning her stance and habits in regard to business would take significantly longer.

    "Tough but fair, I suppose you'd say," says the man of business, rubbing his chin. "Unconventional to be sure. She don't have much to do with the town or the church -- not that any of the Foxgloves do." He gives Heart Cliff a sidelong glance.

    "They're old-fashioned in their worship. 'Course his Majesty--that is, my Majesty--doesn't give a fig about it, but the new priest comes from the seminary in Halcyon and him and the Foxgloves don't see eye to eye."

    "Pruny's a bit further off the reservation than the usual Foxglove," he allows, "but she's brought up standards and barrels. Wants to expand into Snakebite Ale, I understand. If you say something about her quality she'll be nettled, but could be you can make that work for you."

    I don't really know alcohol at all, Heart confesses. Just never had much. It's likely gonna be the two men doing the investigating of the drinks themselves-I couldn't tell you an ale from a beer if my life depended on it.

    "Sounds like she'd be the headstrong type, but properly directed and focused," Edward says quietly, "that could be... frustrating if we trigger a response too strongly. Thank you, Mister Lane."

    I think we're ready for the distillery now.

    The distillery is a long, low brick building, barn-like, but with copper pipes popping out from odd angles. People are moving around it already in the early morning light, mostly fair-haired halfings, and they scurry to begun loading the wagon as soon as you arrive.

    Lane hurries through the doors and soon returns trailing a halfling woman of middle-age, lines of both laughter and sternness set in her face. She wears homespun trousers and an expensive waistcoat. Her hair is cropped extremely short in a way that makes it stick up and out at angles, and either bleached or faded a frostier version of the blond hair that seems to predominate on the Foxglove halflings. If it's bleached she's vain enough to do her toes too.

    "So ol' Dred tells me you're big city inspectors here to figure out how I'm poisoning people," she says tartly, hands on her hips. "But I say you're personal friends of the Prince sent out to vindicate some wild and baseless accusations against his favorite tipple. Care to settle the bet?"

    Edward raises an eyebrow, "we are here to see if the sickness is from our end, the transport, or improper storage on their end. That is all. And I only met the prince once, yesterday, so we are not what you would call acquaintances, let alone personal friends," he sighs slightly, "Honestly, I do not believe, and hope, the issue is not on your end of the production, but the prince must be seen doing something or political tensions will rise, and with recent events, tensions are already rising. This is merely an attempt to alleviate some of that tension by proving we are not at fault for the issues elsewhere."
