A message left posted in the Inn reads as follows:
-an update regarding efforts investigating the missing Lady Ilana Darkwood
Through shared efforts of several individuals over the past several days, a cave where the Lady was being kept has been found! Investigation has revealed several pieces of information:
-There are several caves of this sort being used by the kidnappers, scattered about
-They travel between these caves via Gate Runes, with such frequency as to leave palpable Transportation Magic residue
-The kidnappers have means of detecting magic in the vicinity, and will relocate swiftly if they detect anything unfamiliar
From this we can infer that, should one of these individuals be found, they will almost certainly have a set of Gate Runes that lead to their various hideouts, and may be the only way to catch them. I hope we may find out more in the coming days.
