Sgt/Aquarius: I regret to inform you that Phaedrus do not in fact work in the library... he does spend an inordinate amount of time there though. It is plausible that he has a specific area though (if he has to rent it, I can reflect a small amount on my character sheet). I work in the market - primarily when I need coin - where there are many more people wandering about who may decide to have someone record something - contract, receipts, notices from guards, or letters to run.
a'Lan: how much is a standard fare for drink? and how much would a study space cost - that seems like a good investment that Phaedrus would have made, though I didn't think of it during creation.
