He has been on the road for more than a week now, alone. He’d slipped out in the dark of night with his most trusted steed, his sword, and just enough food and money to get by. All else was left behind, and gladly. With his head hung low and buried in the hood of his cloak, he managed to go unrecognized long enough to get into the mountains. His steps will be harder to trace on this stony, frozen path, so long as the wind and snow continue to cover them.

No doubt by now everyone has been alerted to his flight, but he took care of that too, strategically planting clues intended to misdirect. By the time they figure out they’re going in circles he should be well away, and anything left of his trail gone cold. If he’s careful, and wise, he just might make it to the other side.
Who is this man, and where is he going? The rest of this story is up to you...
