A meeting of Mages in the forrest

Oswyn (Grey Coat) , Nerienda (known by most as Old Crone) and Hunwald (Black Staff)  have gathered for a meeting deep in the forest ..
Oswyn:  How goes our plan Nerienda ?
Nerienda: Well it goes. The viking Erikson has the book of Tanwold, and our friend Elfric will decipher the clues to the hiding place of the Whorled Cup and its treasure.
Hunwald: So we let those vikings do all our work for us and take the risks.
Nerienda: Yes they find what we seek and we will take it from them ("cackle")
Hunwald: Let us retire to my cave and have something to eat and drink.

 as they walked to the cave

Oswyn: Nerienda I hear that the Bishop of Wuduceastre is hunting for you
Nerienda: I will deal with him and whoever he sends, do not worry

Where is the Whorled Cup ?

After their victory at Drengham Sven Erikson looked at beginning of the the second chapter in the book of Tanwold, he new some latin but not enough to understand, he got Elfric (a monk they had captured) to translate. The information he was after was there - chapter two dealt with the history of the Whorled Cup.

Elfric told him the rest of the book contained 8 short chapters , 7 describing the locations of the 7 parts of the map showing the route to the location of the Whorled Cup and the last one special instructions on how to proceed at the site of the treasure.

Sven and Elfric settled down to decipher chapter 3, the location of the first part of the map ...
