- Markshire PCs:
A foreign girl emerges from the home of Alec the Tanner and notices a number of messages stuck in the door of the Barracks opposite. She moves quietly to investigate, wondering briefly why the door guard has not collected the notes for his Captain, but this particular guard, she has noted before, lacks good sense and manners. She reads the first note, laboriously, shaking her head, and eventually mutters something about a gnome under her breath.
She reads the second note more quickly, and nods. The guard, thinking the gesture intended for him, nods backs. She smiles briefly at him, touches him on the shoulder, and salutes. Then she turns toward the Bazaar and the Grotto.
