You look up. There he is. You stick out your arm and wait for Beetle, your eagle, to land, then you detach a small scroll from his leg. It reads:
Two long-ships, perhaps 80 Viking warriors, approach from the south on the Hudson River. Send word to Tryonsbury.
What do they intend? They will pass right in front of the keep. There must be 1000 guards there. We would crush them. Still, you must bring the news to your lord. But wait— who sent this? You don’t recognize the seal.

Another winner from Jason. We had a great time! Lots of trees and gardens and historic sites here. A very cool story line and puzzles. turn your phone upside down to read the question more easily. this part of Manhattan is hilly and my my couch potato legs got a workout. plenty of shade and benches and the views do not disappoint!
