Ingram blinked slowly, putting one hand on the greathelm at his side, and swallowed. “A sighting?”
“Yes, sir, uh,” the boy said, seeming nervous, “the missive says there was a, uh, scalar ship. Dragonborn crew.”
Ingram narrowed his eyes.

“Yes, sir. By a…dragon, sir.”
Ingram pursed his lips, not saying anything for a moment.
“There’s no mention of damage to Hearthglen, sir, but…”
Ingram raised an eyebrow.
“It mentions a few people that match the description of Rell’s Heroes. One commanding storms, another wielding what appeared to be tridents.”

“Prepare my steed.”
