Rod procedes with describing the 3 pictures in the
camera again, as it has been hectic when he described
them last 

---description of photos---
There are three, one is of a building, looking like a
temple. The 
picture is indistinct, almost as if the picture was
taken through thick 
glass. Large columns can be seen, supporting a roof
that looks to be 
made of solid granite. Around the temple, as far as
can be seen, is a 
wasteland littered with tree trunks, large boulders
and swamp. It's 
to make out due to the deterioration of the memory,
but it seems almost 
as if someone is standing in front of the temple, a
tiny figure, which 
if man-size, means the building is huge.

The next shot, though it must be separated from the
temple picture by 
dozens of others, seems to be taken from the top of a
cliff. Below are 
number of men on horses, one of which has skin nearly
as white as snow. 
The others are an ugly looking bunch, possibly some
sort of mercenaries 
by the lack of uniforms but the large numbers of
weapons on their 
person. The white-skinned man carries only a sword,
and runes can be 
made out on it.

The third shot is the least-well preserved of the
three. It is only a 
few shots away from the one with the white-skinned
man. It seems to be 
of the mouth of a cave. Within there is a bright red
glow. Someone, 
possibly a woman, is standing off to the side, with
what could be a key 
in her hand. The image is too badly scrambled to make
out any more.
---end of description---

Rod then says what about the fellow who was removed
from the dining room during dinner in a most
suspitious manner? we should ask him some questions.
he may know something as his ring bears the same
emblem as the one in the trunk we found. heck he may
even be the original owner of the ring"

ooc: bloody yahoo sighned me out in the middle of my
reply so if this is a duplicate, forgive me, as rod is
but a midget.
