>> The King then turns to the others. "The palace and the city will be

>> Lady Louissa."
>> With that the King and his guards turn and leave the dungeon.

>> [Sir Prrcyvel]
>> "Well Osmar, old chap, it looks like no banquet tonight!" he laughs,

>> [/Sir Prrcyvel]

As the company and Sir Prrcyvel make their way up to the main level,
an alarm suddenly blares in the distance.

[Sir Prrcyvel]
"That's an armory alarm!" Sir Prrcyvel shouts. "Someone is trying to
break into one of the armories."

He doesn't even wait for the company [OOC: I assume you all follow
him] but breaks out into a run.
[/Sir Prrcyvel]

Moments later the alarm quite suddenly stops. A voice is heard over a
loud speaker. "False alarm! Repeat... false alarm."

[Sir Prrcyvel]
"This place is falling to pieces, I tell you!" the knight laughs. He
then shows them to a door. "This is where Lady Louissa was waiting,
and where Ted should have been sent after his interview."
[/Sir Prrcyvel]

The door reveals a room with a luxurious looking sofa, chairs, a table
with fruit, some of it half-eaten, on it. There is a curtain at the
back of the room. The sofa looks a little ruffled, as if someone had
just been laying on it not long before.

Out in the hallway, Oz and Vesper notice something odd, a door about
30 feet down the hall that looks like it has a dent in it, and a trail
of something; paint, liquid, something, leading to a door on the other
side of the hallway.

[Sir Prrcyvel]
"When you're done here, perhaps we can check the CCTV system." Sir
Prrcyvel offers.
[/Sir Prrcyvel]
