"I'm going to see if the clerk knows anything, or has seen any suspicious characters about lately.' Leroy looked for the person in charge.

As you peer down the alley by the side of the building, you see a woman directing another to hand some washing. She is a little better dressed.

She sighs.
"Suspicious characters? We are in a neighborhood full of suspicious characters. Orcs, Shevnians, all of these young toughs who frequent the Wastrel. And your guild, just minutes away... This place had been a monastery before my time, and I couldn't tell who was worse. There have been some ner'do'wells writing rude words with charcoal on my fresh whitewash, some of them came stomping about with torches yelling things. I complained to LeFleur, and he said they were fine people, at least it wasn't the gobfolk running ampk like the other week."

"The Wastrel, huh? Sounds like we might find out more about our troublemakers, there."
Leroy said, as he watched the group crossing the street.

The group consists of two heavily armored knights, an archer holding hands with another woman, and a muscular dwarf with a mandolin.

Rosewood follows the others doing his best to say out the way.
Listening and hopefully learning how big people deal with big people.

Anita is not so easily distracted.

"I see. What were they writing in charcoal? And what did they look like, those that defaced your walls writing on your whitewash?"

The dwarf, who has a black eye, slings his axe, and tries to tune his mandolin. The two women call to him to hurry up.

"They were rough trade. Aralaise men, all a bit scruffy. Wrote 'mongrels' and 'No Halfbreeds' My tenant Gordab would have thumped them, but he was off minstrelling about. Quite a few of my tenants are musicians."

"Do you think they might have been the ones responsible for the fire in that building?" She points out the building that was burnt that they had looked at previously. "Is it possible the charcoal came from there?"

"I'm going to head across the street and check out this tavern for clues, but first, I'll question these folks."
Leroy approaches the group heading away from the tavern, crossing the street.
"Hail, Sirs and company! Might you help us in a task, of finding a group of ne'er-do-wells, that we might mete out justice? We're looking for the people responsible for the fire, at the boaring house."

Wiley leans against a wall and watches the area for trouble while he flips the large coin he carries as his good luck charm, trying to look as if he is not associated with the rest of the group.

Finding himself of little use at the moment Rosewood fly's up and find himself a nice little perch to look over the area and keep eye out for trouble.

"You are the nosy one, ain't ya? I room all sorts, pieceworkers, day laborers, minstrels, what have you. All sorts, mostly a little off, but their coin is good. Got some cusswords writ, some mudblood this, bloodstain that, halfbreed illegitimate what have you. Gone through a lot of whitewash. Some left, some are still here. That archer gal and her wife stay here too, but they got their own troubles with rude folk."

"Investigation kind of require the nosy type. Sorry if it makes you uncomfortable. Do you mind if we speak to some of the tenants that were here at the time this fire started? Perhaps you can indicate which ones?"

"Don't fret, good Dame. We're not here to cause a fuss, but to help. Forsooth! It does not appear as if the gendarmes are interested in keeping the peace, so we were called upon."

Down the street behind you, you hear heavy footsteps and whistling.
The woman cocks her ears and points with her chin as she continues folding laundry.
"That would be Gordab. He wasn't here when the fire started. Renolan was, and a few serving folk."
