    Money?

    Things were going badly.

    Now Antonio was gone the cell needed money and they were in disarray.

    A plan was hatched and five of the cell made their way unhappily from the hideout and went in search of gold...

    A Runner Has News!

    A runner appears at each city and tells the guard to beware as a gang of men made an attack on the minter in Yew last night and made off with a substantial amount of gold.

    That's What I Want...

    Steve the Pirate sat drowning his sorrows in the tavern.

    The pirate gang had split up and gone their seperate ways and Steve needed a drink [or three].

    The strange conversation just now didn't help and he shook his head as the man left.

    The incessant sound of sword on shield was also becoming irritating.

    But it was better than the incessant sqwaking of that damn parrot.

    Now who around here looked rich...

    From the bloody dagger outside the Abbey the trail appears to lead to Yew Healers and the only NPC in there is William the Fence. He is saying notalot, like nothing at all.

    No idea, I haven't found anything to decode, just the code books, which say.

    Book Of Codes
    by Barish

    Please note this code book replaces the previous one which may be compromised.

    Its buggy or not used for text decode. There is no letters "b", "v", "q", "j", "z", "d", "g", "h", "k" .... at all.

    Dunno if this is old or new, but as I've been pootling about after turkey maps, I've been finding odd blue boxes out in the middle of nowhere - just south of my Yew house and on the other side of the mountains west of Despise - and each contains an item with two letters on it. Can't pick em up, get a cursor that does nothing if you double click em, one is a lantern, one is a scroll.

    Those are from the drow event story arc, the ones around the sanctuary. There should be one with a scroll inside titled Li, but written in lowercase, so li.

    And for the code, it is quite obvious that the first letters are the days of the week. I dont know if it is something to be decoded or something that will help us to decode another book.

    Gotcha. Antonio said something about codes. They are passwords to enter.

    I missed an event and havent seen a report here, so I dont know what he said. We should have lock Antonio up or even better, get rid of him while we had the chance. That guy is full of problems.

    I saw this posted on the EM site:

    So I checked the Counsellors' Hall and found 'A Hurried Note' by Nathan Hawke which says

    Selcius has the following to say from the keywords used.

    Hello - Hello there traveller are you interested in the stars?

    yes - Ahh that is good I have been observing the movements of three moons recently.

    moons - A green moon, a red moon and a white moon all moving into alignment.

    alignment - Yes currently it looks as if the white moon is covering the green moon slightly.

    green - What do they represent? Could they be factions or armies? What could be the significance?

    red - The red moon seems to be moving more slowly towards the other two but it looks much larger.

    white - This looks to me like some sort of allegory for happenings here or some sign.

    allegory - Yes to the less scientific it appears as if the white moon has started to devour the green moon.

    devour - Or in other words there looks to be some conflict taking place. Where I cannot tell.

    I went to the orc fort near yew, found several savage guardians there and a book:


    Note:Aron told me the book is from an old event, so dont take it seriously.

    "He loved to Drink with the Pirates", allways seemed odd, tried to use ale on the grave without any success. Then it hit me: Drink with the pirates = The Pirate's Plunder!

    Book from The Pirate's Plunder:

    I hope I havent found a book from an old event again..

    Gave him some gold and he asks the name of the person you are looking for.
    Antonio leaves him silent and I dont know any other names in curent scenario.
    Anyone got any ideas?.

    I do wonder if the squaking parrot he refers to might give a name but where is it?

    edit - fed him a couple amethysts and he offers that the one who was talking to him was The Barish
