We got robbed again last night. Or should I say the house got robbed. A statue of a mammal like creature was taken, and if that wasn’t enough, it happened on our watch. We were in the room when it happened. Hell, we were in that room all night and only discovered the item was missing when Jag checked the inventory this morning.
It’s embarrassing to say the least. Okay, so I left the room on several occasions to take a food and toilet break. Armbranch did, too. But we were never out of the room at the same time. I can’t understand it. We had strategically placed six small motion detection spells around the hall and they didn’t pick up the slightest thing. The tracking spells picked up nothing either. Something appeared from nowhere, took the statue, and disappeared back to that nowhere so terrifyingly stealthily it was only when Breven confirmed the item was missing that I fully accepted what had happened.
But at least something has happened. Over the past few days I was starting to suspect we were hanging around here for nothing. We also know that, if this disappearance follows the same pattern as the other disappearances, there won’t be any action for the next three days. That gives us time to work out a plan. Jag is going to teach us how to use a ‘displacement’ spell. Once the spell is set inside the hall and all the doors are sealed, it will expand until the room is filled with a semi-solid gas. Then, once anything enters the room, its mass will displace a certain amount of gas and give us the first clues as to what might have entered there.
I’m entirely too sure how this works and how the amount of mass is analysed, but it sounds like a great idea. I’ve been telling O’Heir all about our various ‘investigation’ methods. He sounds jealous.
