BNN: Mysteries of the Clayns

All right, readers, here is the latest scoop! Seems that those gypsies, or at least some of them, are up to no good indeed. Rilla Takhista, a gypsy herself, has helped the good people of Britannia to find four parts of a book that gives us the inside information on these so-called “clayns”.
We have finally found out what all this “hoopla” is about. Seems that Rilla, who lives in the gypsy camp near Minoc, has been searching for information about what happened to her father! A mystery, dear reader, indeed!
If you get yourself a copy of this book from Rilla or from the librarian at Spiritwood, you will find that there are four “runes” that seem to make these gypsies speak truth. There is a lot more in this book, as well, that seems pretty odd. You will just have to read it for yourself! Drop by on Monday or Friday if you discover anything, because it seems she reads people’s tarot cards on those days. She read mine, and I tell you, it was scary how close she was to the truth!
Well, here are the facts. One, her father’s name was Sarn and he was not a gypsy. Two, he disappeared some years back. Three, some woman whose nickname was Icewynd had something to do with it. Four, the rather nasty Maia Redhaeri, also a gypsy, has information about all this if you can get it out of her. That is all we know so far.
What to do? Well, you can tell these gypsies by the signs in the book. They dress in certain colors, and they seem to be wandering in towns and in the countryside among us. Look sharp! If you find one, and you get anything out of them, bring the information to Rilla at her tent. Be wary, though, for not all of them are going to be willing to give that information up. Bring what you find to Rilla in her tent, and she has said that she will reward you.
Well, those are all the facts we have now in this strange mystery. The rest is up to you, dear reader. Bon chance, and good luck!
