A Dark and Stormy Night in Arnsberg
Weather: balmy temperatures and a steady storm, with a high wind.
In answer to Lukas' question, the bar mistress remarks that you can't expect farmers to come out in a night like this. The party is the only regular denizens of the inn at present, all others having left town that morning and no new guests having arrived. Arnsberg is not that large a town, and it is off the main trade routes.
The storm is such that you probably would not wish to be on the road right now. It has not relented in hours, according to the bar mistress, and doesn't look like its going to relent.
However, after having had a meal, and warmed by the fire, and discussed quietly your plans, there is a banging knock on the Inn door (the bar mistress locked it to strengthen the door against the wind).
