The young lady blushes and smiles. "We don't have much of one, but
there is the Bleak Prospect, a nice little tavern down by the docks."

The Prince bows. "A half an hour, then." He looks as Carlos leaves.
"I see that some of you are already heading to bed." With that, he
rises, beckons to one of the other guests, a strong-jawed,
wide-shouldered woman. She follows him with quick but confident strides
as he leaves the hall.
OOC: I'm assuming everyone is going to their rooms. Haven't heard from
Lady Frost's player, so I'll assume she is too.
Carlos is the first back to the common room, where he finds the fire has
been rekindled. There seems to be no danger, though Carlos does catch a
glimpse of guards patrolling the shore of the river. A sudden tiredness
overcomes Carlos, and suddenly he has an uncontrollable urge to sit
down, and within moments he is asleep...
When the rest of the company comes in, they find Carlos sprawled on one
of the chairs, snoring. Suddenly, Carlos awakes with a start, his eyes
looking as if they had been gazing somewhere else.
