Session starts the evening of the 1st of February.
Lawrence at the Pub
Make an appointment to see the castle at 10am tomorrow.
He studied philosophy at Oxford.
We salute meat pies.
We discuss the local legends of which he is mostly dismissive.
Recommends a walk through the graveyard.
Mentions the party. Eloise turned 21. She is a bookish type.
Lisette follows him and there is very little to show for it.
Visiting the Castle Plumb
Forthright arms himself with a .45 before visiting the castle.
We barge in like angry Americans looking for oil. Giant staircases and halls meet us. The main doors are wedged shut and no longer used any more.
We are led to the parlour were we wait on chintz sofas before a fireplace. Fortified manor house setup. There are 11th and 12th century buildings of sort with a manor house built within. The parlour has lots of paintings of once rich relatives who were B-list celebrities.
After 5 to 10 minutes Lawrence and his father Sir Arthur Vain arrive to greet us.
They take us on the tour and introduce us to their predecessors. They’ve been here since Edward III. Bestowed to a great (to a great length) grandfather. Gives us a long line of the provenance of the castle.
Takes us to the cellar to see the dungeons. The first room is filled with rubbish, then through a wine cellar, and then down to another level.
The lower dungeon is filled with torture equipment and various other accoutrements of medieval justice.
Recent evidence of new manacles and fresh straw in the cell. Scratches in the stone in the cell
Forthright checks Spot Hidden
End up in the library. Forthright distracts our hosts while Dwayne looks for secret passages. No passages found. Most of the books are pretty boring at this point.
Eloise turns up.
