After two days in the inky blackness the sunlight came as a shock to everyone when it flooded in the windows, blinding everyone for a moment. The passengers ran out of their rooms and down the train towards the dining car, the midnight lunch serving had been called off due to werewolves and everyone was starving! After his second full English breakfast Xamino glanced around the room and pointed out to the people on his table that Arkenbrien was missing, Aquila replied that she'd heard he was in the engine helping drive the train through the tunnel as quickly as possible. Xamino grabbed another plate and jogged down towards the engine to bring Arkenbrien his breakfast and thank him for getting them through the darkness.
Xamino balanced the plate carefully as he climbed around into the engine, trying carefully not to breathe in smoke and steam at the same time. As he reached the driver's cabin he got a lungful of smoke and stumbled in wheezing and coughing. He rubbed the smoke out of his eyes and shouted in horror at what he saw: the entire engine control panel was caked in blood, some of it already baked dry by the heat and some of it still running down the walls and pooling on the floor. Blasts of heat were coming out of the boiler door, which was wedged open by a leg already burnt to a crisp above the knee.

Wolfsbane Note Reads:
This is Wolfsbane Potion.
If you're attacked by the wolves, you'll be protected and one of the wolves will be randomly killed.
The potion expires in 48 hours and only lasts 24 hours once consumed, so timing is critical.
Tomorrow, try to provoke the wolves into attacking you, then drink the potion. Claiming to be someone important should be enough.
I can brew only one potion per day, and only have enough materials for 2 more potions, so don't waste this one.
For what I can only assume are balance reasons, I can't drink my own potions. This is why I had to involve you in my plot. We're both taking chances on each other here, but the potential payoff is enormous.
