Cut scene to the castle gatehouse, where Milton and Alexander are conversing with the guard...

Milton and Alexander, you may try to convince the guard to let you pass, go back to your hospital bed and wait until morning, or do something else?

What do you do?

Near the door of the meeting hall, Tarmo and Thorhall see a notice board. The town has a crier for proclaiming important messages, but the message board here is another means of posting notices from townsfolk who are needing help with a special type of job or needing particular resources.

OOC--a question for all of our PCs....looking at your character stats and classes, I would say that Milton is likely to be able to read. I don't know about Alexander...
Tarmo is the son of a upper class landholder and may have had some education, but Thorhall probably didn't spend much time on the school books...

I will let you decide if you think your character is able to read and write, you make the call...but please let me know.

Tarmo reads the notices to Thorhall.

"I could not abide being here in Town for too long, and I don't think you can, either, my wild friend. I suggest we pay a visit to Mrs. Goodwell," Tarmo says.

Milton says to the town guard, We have urgent business within, my good man. Is the Captain of the Guard available? We need to speak to the wizard with urgent business, and need the Captain to accompany us so he can take necessary action!

The guard considers this request for a moment, then orders another guardsman from within the gate house to summon the Captain of the Watch.

"Wait here...he's not going to like it, but well...you're the Heroes of Harkbone...so I guess it must be important."

About five minutes later, a soldier walks through the entryway, he is putting on his sword belt as he strides towards you.

"Milton, Sir Alexander...what brings you out at such a late hour?"

Milton says to the Captain of the Guard, We need to speak to the wizard with urgent business, and need you to accompany us so in case you need to take action! I suspect treachery!

The Captain does not hesitate, motioning to two guards he says, "Go awaken Sir Miles, see to his safety, I will accompany Sir Alexander and Milton to the tall tower. Make haste!"

To Milton he replies, "I will not take this lightly, I trust that you consider this a matter of the most serious nature?"

As the captain walks to the tower with Milton, Alexander, and three guardsmen, he listens to Milton's account.

A short walk into the inner courtyard, they make their way to a tall tower, the upper most rooms are broken and crumbling. A heavy iron door sits in the lower entrance and a small oil lantern hangs from a hook near the door.
