You tell a tale of valour and confidence betrayed. You show where you slew the demon summoned by the cook, you show the two bags of loot the cook was obviously preparing for his getaway.

The watchmen search the house from one end to another. A city magistrate is summoned and he, irritated at dealing with you when he should be sitting down with friends for an early evening drink, is determined to deal with the matter hastily. Finally he fines you the contents of the two sacks you had filled for your burglary and exiles you from the city, having the watchmen put you on the next boat that calls at the pier.
