A swift search of the bookshelves produces several rare volumes, a bestiary, a gazetteer of the Scaum Valley, and another of Kaiin. In a desk drawer there is a handful of coins and some small pieces of jewellery. These you pocket and, opening the window, you slip out into the street. From here the road runs north to Cuirnif where you are sure your fortune awaits you.
