To Alex's keen eyes, it looks as if the most recent disturbance comes
from the eastward path along the river bank.

[Sir Prrcyvel]
"I will take the northward path." Sir Prrcyvel says. "It does look as
if someone went that way not long ago."
[/Sir Prrcyvel]

[Sir Prrcyvel]
"Alright." Sir Prrcyvel replies. "One guard will go with me, and we
will take the north path. Two guards will go with Oz and he will take
the west path. Alex, Justin and Vesper will take the east path."
[/Sir Prrcyvel]

OOC: Splitting up again...
