And so they do, after a brief detour to pick up Embrium's horse and cart. And about ten minutes out of town...

 

"So, uh. There might have been some reasons I didn't mention for why I picked Redcliffe? I'm kind of an apostate."

"What a coincidence, so is Clare."

"That sounds like I don't have a lot to worry about. I'm surprised she went to the Circle, then...?"

"Oh, Ambrose was trained as a Templar, no one's going to suspect his traveling companions of apostasy."

"I seem to have lucked into the exact right choice of allies. What inspires your...tolerance?"  Her voice goes deadpan. "Aren't you afraid I'm going suddenly turn Maleficar and feed you to a demon while I bathe in the blood of children and cackle in an unnaturally deep voice?"

"Well, to begin with it had independently occurred to me that there are probably more reasons someone might end up an apostate than being a cackling demon-worshipper, and then I met Ambrose and he confirmed my suspicion that the Templars are kind of fucked up and avoiding them is a completely reasonable life choice. He doesn't like them much either; he's much happier as a Warden."

"Yours seem like eminently reasonable hands for the fate of the world to be in. And here I was, worried that I might have to save it behind your back."

"I like to think I'm the sort of person who'd handle the fate of the world with appropriate care! Glad you agree."

"Well, with that out of the way - I have some recently-acquired possibly-relevant books I would like to study now that that's no longer suspicious. I doubt I'll find a convenient 'immediately end a blight' spell but I'd be surprised if there's nothing useful there."

"Sounds good!"
