A pale figure in the murky dark finishes lighting a lantern, which doesn't quite give off the amount it should, as if the lantern glass was coated with dust on both sides.

I say, Who resides here? We seek knowledge about this place and the baronyas part of a mission we were assigned.

Balir takes all of this in.  The pale figure was not what he had expected to see.  In response to his comment, Balir asked "And who is the master of this keep?  Who will you inform of our arrival?  And what nature of being is he?"

OOC How is the figure dressed?  Size and build?  Does he (she?) look like a threat to Balir?

The lantern bearer is thin and pale, with deep set eyes. Their padded doublet hangs a little loosely on their spare and bony frame.

"Wait here, I will rouse the Master, the Siegnior du Couver."

A Ghost or worse methinks, but perhaps not opposed to us.

The servant places the lantern on a small table, and exits through a side door.
The room is octogonal and had several doorways. The corners feature pilasters which rise to form an arched vault in the center of the room.

There are a few benches, and the remains of tapestries, Which seem to be coated with enough dust as to obscure details.

This whole situation starts to give Balir some discomfort.  He wasn't really equipped for supernatural foes.  His axe could handle just about anything mundane, but if it couldn't be hit with dwarven steel, he didn't know how he could protect the rest of the group.  Balir had a great deal of confidence in his skill and ability.  He wasn't afraid of anything that could be hit. Unfortunately, this might be something new, that he had not seen before.  Balir hadn't expected what looked like a ghost or apparition.  He wasn't sure how he would do against something incorporeal.  Even though it was just a glimmer of uncertainty, Balir wasn't so sure of himself for just a moment.  Not that anyone would know that through his stoic expression.

The servant did leave footprints.

Someone is approaching from where the servant went...

Silently, a gaunt form in fine but faded velvet approaches through the door the servant exited through, a smallsword at its side. Its eyes are completely black.

Balir examines the man closely, guaging how he moves and how much of a threat he might be.

OOC Axe will be looped at his belt, but Balir is prepared to draw it should he need to.  Shield is on his other arm.  He's watching the interaction closely to see how it goes.

The slender nobleman's dark, empty eyes scan the party.

Not invaders at all, we were more concerned about animals or beings out to hurt us.

We are unaware of any plague around here, and there was certainly none from where we came ... not in several hundred years since the last plague. That one was virulent though.

The last plague was about 40 years ago. Isolated areas tended to survive, depending on the proximity of rats and infected people. Much was abandoned then, like this tower was believed to be.
