>> The surface thoughts of this man are not hard to read. Alex senses his

>> young woman, maybe 25 years old, with three children and, by the looks
>> of it, a third on the way. She also sees an image of a tall man,
>> handsome features with long flowing blond locks of hair and an
>> eyepatch over one eye. She also sees some less palatable things; a
>> plump man in rich fabrics against a wall begging for his life before
>> his head explodes from gunfire, shadowy men creeping over a rise to
>> peer down on a caravan of vehicles.

>> "What is it, Alex?" Justin asks. He turns to Vesper. "I do not think

"I wonder where Oz and Sir Prrcyvel are." Justin asks.

He tries again to radio them. "We are beyond the city now, and are
going to search northward."

"Okay," he says. "Let's see if Poby and Deem can get Louissa's scent."

Once the three companions are away from the caravan, Justin commands
his two dogs "Smell and find!"

The two dogs tear off across the field, moving back and forth trying
to catch a scent. As they do, Alex is surveying the field [Track
Humanoids: 43%]. Quicker than the dogs can find the scent, Alex sites
the trail through the tall grass of the field. It leads to a
depression, which may be a ditch or small creek, and beyond that the
large woodland they had first seen when they surfaced out of the
sewers. There are a few other paths through the grass, but this is the
only one that seems to start at where they, and probably Louissa, got
above ground again.

"Should we wait for Oz, or follow the trail now?" Justin asks.
