We go back to the manor to get some sleep. Well, THAT plan's not going to happen...
Cleaning people show up at 6. That’s way too early to be knocking on someone’s door. Fuck that, I let them in and go back to bed.
Neighbor butler shows up at 7 and invites Solomon over for tea. Looks like some kind of butler dude, says he works for the neighbor lady. She wants to talk to Solomon. Fine. I tell the guy he’ll be there and go back to bed.
Then, at 8:30., Tsuto, Lyrie and Oric show up with a few guards. I wake up to a huge noise of them busting through the front door. I get up, grab my staff, and bound downstairs. After a round or two of dealing with Tsuto and his bunch, the cleaning crew that got here earlier turn into more of those faceless stalker things. Ugh. We deal with them and Tsudo and Lryie help us to fight them off, and then they take off, leaving Oric and the guards to die.
We stabilize Oric and one of the Stalkers. When Oric wakes he question him about why they came back. Since he and Lyrie weren’t breaking any laws they were just reprimanded. He says the plan was to come rough us up, retrieve the chest they buried, and leave town. He thinks they might be headed to Riddleport.
We find a parchment on one of the stalkers. It is a crude map, with Katjitsu manor circled, and a drawing of Tsudo. Maybe they were here for him instead of us. Cezar comes back (he went to follow Tsudo), saying that Tsudo and Lryie found a bundle of goods, and left town. He also saw the magistrate, trying to hide in a disguise, looking pissed off. He followed him back to the saw mill, so clearly the magistrate was linked to there as well. Joy.
Cezar and I leave to find a non-drop-site guard location to have them come and arrest Orka and the guards and collect the bodies. Solomon goes to the neighbor’s house for “tea”, and is gone for several hours. We report the attack, and we end up being grilled with questions over the next few days. Solomon manages to use his connections with the neighbor to arrange house arrest.
