When the party found the body they discovered the following:
- The course of death was a blow to the head from a stub weapon i.e. a club or a
mace (not a rapier or knife)
- The footprints did not indicate a battle which means that victim might have known
- In the adventure the victim was earlier badly wounded in his right hand. His sword
could therefore have been placed afterwards.
Closer study of the footprints reveals a distinct mark on the killers left
sole. A capitol M - maybe an initial for the murderers name?
The party discovered that the suspect had some very compromising boots
in his locker.
HOWEVER: Closer study of the boots reveals that the M is not mirrored in the snow,
indicating that the most obious suspect is being framed. Who the real killer is
up to the GM.
