    Carrie smiles nervously at Quinn, looking at the area they're to observe.

    [Abandoned Temple]

    Inside, there are signs of recent occupation; there's fresh food in the kitchen, the storerooms have been disturbed, probably by whoever added the fresh crates, and the mismatched furniture is clear of dust.

    [Starbane District]

    The Starbane district appears to be set aside for newcomers, though there is a sizable population of merchants.

    If they follow Karyana's directions, they'll arrive at a fairly nice inn with the name of "Starview".

    "'Starview Inn'. Sounds nice enough," Dani chirps cheerfully, looking at Ashley. "How's about we go in and check it out? Case the joint!"

    [Abandoned Temple]

    Quinn, noticing Carrie's nervousness, gives her what she hopes is an encouaging smile.
    "I won't bite. I'm Quinn - Quinn Druid," she says, introducing herself properly as she frowns, noticing the fresh food, and going to check just how fresh - and what sort of food.

    Kevin completes the square and the spell. Now he should be able to use tremorsense to detect if anyone is approaching the temple.
    Matthew scans the sky for awhile, then looks at Karyana and Zwei.

    Nothing stops them from entering.

    It's a fairly large room, with the same layout as Trog's.

    The inhabitants are made up primarily of merchants, mercenaries, and people that appear to be pilgrims, though if either of them can tell, there are also several people that are most likely pickpockets.

    She should be able to identify most of it, though some of the items are specific to this dimension, and thus are probably unfamiliar to her.

    Those things she can identify, if she can't do that with the ones that are regional, are several loaves of bread, various kinds of fruit (some she can identify, some she likely can't), pork, beef, goat, and eggs the size of her head, in a cold-room (accompanied by some sort of scaled flesh).

    No-one is approaching or leaving the temple, at this point, as Ashley and Dani have already arrived in the Starbane district.

    Karyana looks back at him.

    After setting up his magical sensor, Kevin stands guard at the entrance to the courtyard, making sure to watch the sky.

    Matt waits a minute to see what Karyana and Zwei intend on doing, then heads to the temple to check all of the rooms for people.

    Dani nods, although the tiny redhead's broad smile and outfit will probably wind up attracting attention anyway...

    But, for now, she listens! To everyone!

    "I don't think it's a trap, but big eggs, scaly skin...that adds up to 'dragon' to me. Or maybe 'wyvern', but my money's on dragon," Quinn says with a frown, looking around for more Clues.

    No blue pawprints. Though if they look in the boxes they find high-quality fabric, spices, and other things that are suitable targets for smuggling.

    The rooms are currently empty of people, at least those that aren't Carrie and Quinn.

    Kevin might feel around a dozen people, along with a few carts (and whatever is hauling them) approaching.

    [Starview Inn]

    If she has good hearing, Ashley might eventually catch the name in a conversation between a couple of the mercenaries; they seem to be talking about one of them getting a new identity.

    Dani may overhear something about using him to fence some sort of stolen goods.

    There are a few pounds of saffron, an entire crate of ginger (which, growing in marshy areas, is much more valuable in a desert), and several dimension specific ones.

    The local spices include circlet root (as you can probably tell, it grows in a circle, and most are around head-size. It has no scent at this point, and is covered by a thick outer layer), sheets of some sort of dried sap (They smell of amber and sage), and what appear to be glands harvested from a large animal.

    After determining that nobody is in the building, Matt steps out next to Karyana and Zwei. Then Kevin approaches them. Company. Either a wagon caravan or a platoon of soldiers. Can't tell.
    "There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
    No one has stepped twice into the same river.
    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"
