"They have papermaking technologies. Much more civilized than we'd first thought! We should heed their request."

>If group agrees, hang back for a while, wait until noon. The dungeon ain't going nowhere. Then, ot the grocery store!

"...prison? I assume they mean the facility.
Sounds like it wasn't our imagination about being watched.
What time is it now. Got a bit before noon I think."

"We've a couple hours then. Damn, I want to see if there are any other good buildings to explore in the city, but to be honest people probably live in those.
Let's head to the grocery store and kill some time I guess. I don't want to go back in the facility til we talk to this person."

Bezel: "Keep a lookout for anything suspicious - I'd rather not we walk right into a trap."

It's a long walk to the grocery store, and you burn through most of your time on the way there. You still see people peaking out from buildings here and there, and even a few walking around the city that quickly shy away when they see you.


The grocery store is a large building, looking more like a warehouse. Through the mostly-broken windows, you can see that all the shelves are empty.

A fair-skinned, middle-aged man dressed in a shirt and jeans is standing in front of the entrance. He has an old straw hat, a backpack, and a rifle slung on his back.

He waves to your group, and you return the gesture.

Once you're within speaking distance, you stop, being sure to keep a respectful distance.

Man: "Afternoon. I'm Marcus."

Bezel: "Bezel. The giant bird is Ingret."

Ingret: "Hello."

The Lindow people introduce themselves as well, keeping it short.

Marcus: "Yeah. Everyone talkin' 'bout a giant bird and green armored people, decided to take a look. Saw you guys pokin' around the ol' prison.

People've been disappearing when they go out alone, especially near the prison. Best to stay away from it."

"We've come from very far to visit this, prison, though. With Ingret around, we don't have much to fear.

Though - You said there've been disappearances like that was a recent thing, and the prison has been abandoned for a decade. What's changed?"

Marcus: "Well, might've been goin' on for a long while, actually. People used to just up an' leave this place, head for the smaller, intact towns. After a while, we realized some people were leavin' all their stuff behind, and didn't announce they were leavin'.

They just, disappear."

"...Hm.
While we were investigating it, we did see, something moving in there. Didn't catch anyone though. Ingret also saw someone or something enter on the roof. Nobody sensed any spirits though. Does that sound familiar to you at all?"

Marcus: "Not really, no. I've got a spirit detector with me, never saw a person without it tellin' me they're there."

He turns slightly, and you see a boxy case strapped to the side of his backpack.

Marcus: "Sounds creepy though. Were you able to make out any details?"

Ingret: "It was close to the same color as the cement, on the building."

"Hrm. I wish Claire was here, she'd probably have some idea of what we're dealing with.

Marcus, is there any sort of government left in town? In fact - How many people still live here, do you reckon?"

Marcus: "Around a thousand people or so. Used to be around fifty thousand I think. The prisoners and shelling killed a good chunk, starvation an' fighting killed more.

Nothin' really like an official government, we just watch out for each other."

"...Damn, fifty thousand. Things must've been rough.

Well, there's still no avoiding it. We're exploring the old prison anyways, it's what we came here to do. Thanks a lot for the information, Marcus. We'll let you know if we find anything interesting."
