Roke puffed on his pipe. "44 miles south southeast from Dragon's Eye, close to the border of the Glassy Woods." He said in response to Naclia's question, without a moment's hesitation to think. "Roess will be avoiding the main roads, and more importantly, avoiding going too near the Glassy Woods. He's been caught poaching there on several occasions and the locals are less than friendly when dealing with repeat offenders. It's more than likely that he'll avoid most well-trodden back roads as well, sticking to animal trails and a few bush trails he knows. He'll be taking a route I couldn't comprehend, let alone explain. If he knows I've talked with you, then he'll change his route, and I'm pretty sure that there are multiple agents of Roess and Mur-Cavendral here in Dragonscale as it is."

Naclia absorbed this information. Thank Falis, she thought. It was exactly what they needed. Considering the possibilities of finding Roess, it would probably be better if they found Mur-Cavendrel first. Word may have made it to him about them, so they would have to travel in secret. "Thank you," she said to Roke, though her eyes drifted down to floor as she contemplated how they should continue.

Eliamn gradually regained her composure and turned her mind around questions she could ask. Naclia already nailed a good one, but Eli's lack of knowledge over geography made her ranger companion much more apt to questions in regard to directions.

There were other things Eliamn had been wondering about that she needed to confirm.

"Has anyone from the Mur-Cavendrel family ever been interested in purchasing books of the arcane persuasion?" She asked Roke. "Especially books which would be difficult to purchase openly thanks to questionable content, subjects such as necromancy?"

Roke nodded, puffing on his pipe. "However, who, has always evaded my spies eyes and ears. Roess, and other smugglers of his type, often get subcontracted through various people to filter unwanted attention away from noble families. There were a few books purchased a hundred or so years ago, or earlier, but nobles usually buy things of some strange antiquity for odd reasons. As recently as the fall of Marmo there have been a few more...disturbing...purchases that passed that way." Roke answered.

"Then perhaps not a noble, but a retainer?" Eliamn suggested. "Roess was protected from scrying. I have yet to find out whom might have magically shielded him so."

Roke scratched his bearded chin while listening to Eliamn's question. "It's a long shot, but one of the children of the Mur-Cavendrel family did do a little dabbling in sorcery. I'm well versed in a lot of backwater dealings, and this town, but the Mur-Cavendrels tend to be just out of my scope of intelligence." Roke admitted. "If it is one of the younger of that clan, then I have very little information on them. They aren't a very prominent family, you see, and thus, tend to fly just under the general range of interest." Roke stopped his movement for a moment and suddenly grinned largely. "I just remembered, there's a mage guild stashed in the forests between here and there. They took a town over after it was deserted and made it into a sort of conclave. If anyone had information on your mystery mage, it would be them."

The blonde shamaness furrowed her brow as she puzzled over the latest tidbit of information. "That might be worth looking into. Can you describe to Naclia how to reach that place?"

"Why describe. Wilhelm's old maps have the place on them. I'll point it out." Roke said, puffing on his pipe. Wil brought out his old map and unfurled it carefully. Roke bent down and pointed at a neatly crossed out township some eighty miles northwest of Dragon Scale. "That's the place." Wil took an immediate mental note of it on his map. He had been there once before, but it was a long time ago.

Eli nodded; that certainly worked. "I am also wondering what is in this for Roess; he is tempting the ire of a dragon - after all - and it takes a certain kind of person to dare do that. There is also the issue of how they managed to distract Mycen out of her lair in the first place. Any insight in that?" Any edge on knowing what motivated Roess and how organized he had been to pull all of that off might help them figure out how to best deal with him once they met face to face.

"All I could do is give my best guess." Roke stated. "The very idea seems inconceivable at best. I'm afraid that I don't know how he did it." The older man sighed and puffed upon his pipe. "However, why he did it. Well that's more obvious than a smile on a thief's face: money. Wealth and power are great motivators for someone like Roess. How much do you guess a dragon egg be worth? Three, four, five hundred Raiden? Maybe into three to four thousand Raidens? How much land would one get for such a service? What titles would be bestowed upon a man who committed such a deed? And then there's the chance of infamy. 'The man who stole an egg from under the dragon's nose'. That in and of itself would make him a legend." Roke scratched his chin. "That's my hypothesis."

The blonde elfmaid considered the older man's words. In the end, it seemed she had managed to cover all the questions that she felt had needed asking - she had more, but she did not expect Roke to answer with more than conjecture... and if she needed conjecture on Roess's scheme, she figured she could get a good deal of that out from asking Wil anyways.

"The night is dark and my respect for the elderly protests against keeping you up at this unsightly hour more than necessary," Eliamn joined her hands in front of her and dipped in a respectful curtsy. "Before you leave, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your assistance. I am most grateful you chose to address us; our need was great."

"You're welcome. Now, I'd just like the remainder of the money you owe me, and I'll be on my way." Roke stated.

Wil shrugged. "I don't have anymore on me, I'm tapped. Your cronies bled me."

"How much more do you require?" Eliamn asked, not making much sense of the situation. She figured Wil had already paid the required amount, seeing the dwarf had checked and then just gone on his way.

"Just a single Raiden." Roke admitted. "Then I'll be out of your way."

Eliamn allowed herself a smile and bent to fish out the Raiden she had hidden in her legwrap earlier. "There you go," she stepped forward and offered the coin. "I bid you a good night."
