    Sunday was more a 'filler' to advance the story than an 'event'. I'm sure folks will add to or correct my summary, but basically -

    Fynn met us at the Guard Tower, explained he had taken the 'Orders' found at the Cove orc fort and Mericles' Diary to the Librarian, Floyd, at Castle British to see if they were written by the same person.

    Floyd's report, and copies of those two books, are in the library upstairs in the castle - essentially, although similar in many ways, the writing in the two is not the same. Floyd suggests perhaps a shared teacher explains the similarities, so Fynn wondered if there we knew of Mericles 'schooling', or could find other examples of writing to either find a match or prove someone was not the author of 'Orders' (there were suggestions it may be Hannah, but some of us doubt that - a sample of her writing would be useful, but so far we don't seem to have one).

    Fynn had to go make a report to Avery, so tasked us with finding more information, and delivering anything we found to the Guard Tower. Between us it was remembered that the Royal Alchemist Carracas was supposedly a schoolmate of Mericles, and there is a 'school report' on Mericles in the Lycaeum which names his old headmaster (apparently dead, but since Mericles was a necromancer, that may not be a problem!) and has a note scrawled at the end which looks to be Mericles work.

    That's pretty much all I remember, anyone else feel free to fill in any gaps or correct errors!

    And I'm not sure we have got all the information we can out of 'Big Bob' in Yew (this thread ), anyone know what progress was made with key words or phrases and replies from him?

    And Carracas wrote a analysis of a substance of interest at an earlier stage, which, I believe, is still in the necro"tower" in the northern corner of Umbra.

    It was during the seed pod event that we first meet Carraccas the Alchemist. The orcs were putting a lummincent liquid on the seed pods, so we got samples and Nathan gave them to the Casca to have the royal alchemist Carraccas analys it. The report we were given had been tampored with and so we took a second sample to him ourselves. We found him in Umbra where casca had hide him for his so called own protection. When we meet him we also quized him if he knew Mericles and he informed us they were in the same class at school. It was after that we discovered Mericles school report written by his head master at the Lyceum. We returned to see Carraccas later that week but he had vanished, although his report on the orc liquid was there. Thus we now have samples of Mericles head masters handwriting (school report in the lyceum) and someone in his class the royal alchemist carraccas, report left in Umbra (NE umbra place next to tailors, upstairs).
