With a grunt, Safwan listens at the rightmost set of double doors. See roll in log. Do I notice any features or engraving on this door? If there is a picture of a Lovecraftian horror eating a hapless adventurer, I will stay back from it.

"This one's listening is more keen than Safwan thought." I share with the others what I heard at the door.

Gareth will go in and investigate how long since it was occupied. Waiting to allow someone to check the door for traps on the way, if someone does...

sorry thought it was pulled open.  no sou d, no traps. if Amelia darts in, she  would need search rather than scrounging to toss the room. scrounging is more like "over the CV ourse of an hour, you manage to locate and obtain somehow an item you were lacking... you can do this faster in a hoarder's house.. or a messy alleyway

Gareth joins her, looking around specifically for any scrolls or books.

"Oh, perfume...for guys? Is it magical?"

Gareth keeps searching/scrounging for scrolls...

Amelia titters at Garth's queries but continues looking for killer clothes: anything she can accessorize.

Noting the titters, Gareth asks defensively

"What? I have not seen too many wearing dresses, so I could not imagine why they would wear perfume, unless it was magical. Otherwise it could attract predators!"

"No, no, it's fine. But some might suit you, you know?" Alecia replies without looking back.

 She glances at the mage and smiles to disarm her comments.. But it's nice to see the non-grumpy side of the fellow.
"No, ladies, you silly fellow. Unless you have, uh, other preferences."

He blushes a little.

"Ladies! Oh, it has been a very long time since I was with a lady. Or any female, if I am honest...but they are definitely my preference. But I was raised 400 years ago, give or take a decade. I doubt there would be any ladies around interested in such an old fashioned individual."

"Whatever gave you that idea, Gareth? It's far more important how you are than what you are!" says Amelia, still looking for something she might wear.

He seems to have finished looking for scrolls...

"Well, if you're still interested in that sort of thing, you could always try a little Cologne. Just a little. But don't be curmudgeonly and certaily don't mention age, expecially yours," replies Amelia, choosing her words with the care she would in putting together an outfit. She fondly fingers her cameo necklace, remembering some favourite outfits for 'ladies who party'. She sighs. "And, Gareth? if by 'picked' you mean having a party, well, if invited, I'd join you. If I can get a nice outfit and if you promise not to be curmudgeonly."

She turns to the other, uncomfortably aware how silent that are. "How about you, Berry, when was the last time you went to a party?"

"Curmudgeonly? I think not. I have friends others pretend are not there, and THEY are curmudgeonly, but I did not think I was...though I am not party animal."

"Well, my dear, I didn't say that you were, just saying it's a good thing not not to be so. Just trying to help, you know?" clarifies Amelia, flashing Gareth an encouraging smile. "I guess four hunded years takes a lot of adjustment. I'll try and help, if you want me to."

She takes a few moments to walk across to the unusally ancient fellow, "Not saying it'll be easy for either of us, but I promise to try my best and you do the same? Deal?" She offers him a hand in a man-like manner to seal it, although her grip definitely isn't man-like.

Gareth is not the most muscular individual himself, and is startled by the approach, not quite sure how to respond. Hesitantly, he accepts the hand with an evident element of disbelief.

"Uh, it is usually undead who make such offers to me. Even before I was captured, most of my friends remained long after they died horribly. Perhaps I can introduce you to some of them, though now I only hear them. I have not seen them since I was captured."
