Cid checks the door to the office … and it’s a lovely office, being searched by a frog. “Leave!”
Tomo hears the frog’s voice. Emotions are stirred. Ayase! Betrayer of their lord!
Joy that they will face Ayase at last.
Cid: The sigil is on top of the desk. Call for guard! “Alarum! The lady [the cat lady] has fainted! Intruder!”
- From the other side of the walls, commotion.

Cid motions everyone to hide or run.
- Alvin – hiding into a wardrobe.
- Cid tells Tomo to jump out a window.
- Tomo helps cause chaos by fleeing out the door.
- Slayer - races over toward the guest rooms.

Head to the village. Allie is there, and our contact.
Miriel is very happy that we got the stuff – the sigil and letter of marquis. Will force the governor to do things in person, and will help break his control over the town.
But … time to leave town. Quickly.
