hideout drawn crudely on the back./*
* Heirthyr Fullthorn furrows his brows
Heirthyr Fullthorn:     This thing makes no sense to me...maybe someone downstairs knows.

Clarc:     So where is garreth?
* Juir is outside chanting softly while looking into a book and concentrating on the horse.

Clarc:     A shadowamre?
* Juir shoves book in his cloak.

Clarc:     I know you have an odd sense of humor
Juir:     How was it pinned to the door?
Heirthyr Fullthorn:     With this dagger...
Clarc:     With a dagger wasn't it Heirthyr

    Heirthyr Fullthorn:     Pinned on MY door

    Juir:     May I see the dagger?

    Heirthyr Fullthorn:     Sure.

* Heirthyr Fullthorn hands Juir said dagger
* Juir examines the dagger...
    Juir:     hmmmm

* Juir unrolls lead sheet in front of himself.
Clarc:     What do you ahve that for?
Juir:     I dunno, I hear it has it's uses.
Clarc:     Oh your not planning anything for it yet?

shoudl see if Garretth is within.

Clarc:     Hmmmm
Clarc:     I wonder if he is asleep
* Clarc knocks on the door quite loudly
*/No response/*
Clarc:     Where is that buffoon...
*/Even more no response/*
Juir:     Lamest attempt to break down a door ever
* Heirthyr Fullthorn can't help but give a chuckle
Clarc:     I wasnt trying to break it down
Clarc:     Want to see me try?
Juir:     Want to see garreth dock your pay?
Heirthyr Fullthorn:     And have the General mad at you? Be my guest...
Clarc:     Good point
Clarc:     Thanks for the helpful advice
Juir:     You're welcome.
Clarc:     What happened to yue?
Clarc:     Anyone want to race?
Juir:     He got word of a old archive recently uncovered by a cabal, went to go study.
Juir:     A race... Sounds like fun.

* Clarc rolls: 1d20 +6 => 14 + 6 = 20

Clarc:     We dont ahve time for such trvialities. That note could bode ill for Heirthyr

    Juir:     How about boding ill for the fool who won't answer his door?

* Heirthyr Fullthorn scratches the back of his head
Clarc:     Who didnt answer their door?
