Legacy of the Barrowgrimm

Several months pass after Grimm and Locke return to Dragoneye City.

After setting his business in order, Locke makes plans to spend the next few months in Coogan’s Mill as the guest of Baron Coogan. Two months after returning to Malagan Keep, during which time he’d worked on purification and strengthening his mental defenses, he makes the short trip east. With the Baron and Syrus’s help, Locke pursues several studies. Additionally, he helps train and educate some of the locals. However, once the mark that so imperiled his life fades away, he considers a rendezvous with others in Fivestones.

Returning to the woods, he disappears for a month before re-emerging with a note from Blake that may benefit both he and Locke. After helping Layne lay low for a while, and making his usual rounds about the region, Grimm decides to try and find Rikk and perhaps make contact with Blake at a drop point in Fivestones. He leaves at the height of autumn, with Layne in tow, and books passage to Fivestones. Once there, he avails himself of some physical and combat training, as well as learning what he can about the city. Unfortunately, there is no immediate sign of Rikk or Blake in the second largest city in County Alamen.
