    Ishmael approaches quickly becoming one with the shadow and checks the door and keyhole if there is a lock. He also presses his ear firmly against the door for any clues as if the people he is pursuing as just past the door and still at work.

    The near deaf skulk presses his ear against the door trying to listen for anything at all, mostly though he tries to look through the keylock...

    On the other side of the keyhole, you see a brown crate.

    You don't hear anything.

    Upon the door opening, you hear the boss and his assistant drop a crate and shout, "Dammit, someone's in here! That door was locked!" The assistant approaches the door.

    "I don't see anyone."

    Ishmael uses the hat to take the form of one of the little girls he saw earlier in the building. He also tries to recall the name of any of the teachers or any of their handlers that took them outside so he can use it.

    He then goes further inside now that he has a backup in case he gets seen somehow. He especially tries to be in covered areas so that his skills can be useful but also so that if he is seen as a little girl he has a plausible reason about why they missed him.

    wisdom check to recall names and such


    You assume the form of one of the older teen girls under their care, the limits of your hat not allowing you to vary TOO far from your base form. Fortunately, there are a few older girls in their care.

    IIRC, disguise self requires you to stay within 10% of your base height.+


    As you slink past the entrance, both of them cast spells and begin staring at slightly different angles.

    "Someone's using magic here, I can see that." the assistant says.

    "Yes, of course Jorch. The question is, who and why."

    It was just a minute ago but okay

    (1d20)[14] wisdom check.



    Ishmael realises they might have just cast any spell that would foil invisibility but he trusts in his non-magical talents even more so.

    As such he continues to move around to confound the senses of whoever is trying to screen for magic. Even better he takes out a couple of his healing potions, the least powerful ones and hides them behind crates to make the presence of magic more profound in a particular location and then moves away.

    He partially ignores the two searching men trying to figure out if this is the last place they got to and if the crates are the ones that they moved or if it continues further.

    Indeed, they detect the potions and the subordinate heads there. The leader doesn't let up his vigil.

    you recall the names of three of the caretakers, middle-aged women who seem very brisk and businesslike, but not cruel.

    I'll let you fill in the details for their names and such. If I come up with them, I'll never remember them.


    You can sneak past them if you wish, but there is no cover in the other half of the room beyond the leader.

    Ishmael looks at the lack of cover and smiles...

    If only it wasnt for his amazing new... ability he would have had a serious problem. Despite the lack of cover he simply approaches nearby shadows, even those cast by flickering torches or lanterns the men must be carrying or must be around the room.

    congrats. That's the exact reason the Jacks were so paranoid.


    You skirt past and use the shadows to hide. The back half of the room is empty, and the walls are bare and smooth.

    About this time, the leader says, "The illusion is gone. The aura isn't here. Damn. He's either already gone or in the room. Shut the door, stay here, and make sure nothing remains. I'll go back to my office and check on our agent. If he's there, we'll know he knows nothing."

    Ishmael faces one of those hard decisions once again...

    Stay here, take out the guard and find out right now whats in those boxes that they were so desperate to hide that even the whole place is protected from scrying... or head back upstairs and pretend everything is fine.

    The second option seems best but on the other hand even then its not as if they wont suspect him... most likely they would think he is working with an accomplice or something similar given that the coordinator of this place has his mind set that 'the merchant' is a fake.

    In the end he decides to play it cautiously hoping it wont come back to bite him in the... behind.

    Using his supreme stealth he approaches the leader and walks just behind him and trying to stay outside his field of vision in case he is still detecting magic. As such he should be able to follow him outside before the door is shut.

    Then once they are within sight of his office Ishmael will use the ability of the shadow cloak, (the jump) twice if necessary to enter the room first and assume his previous appearance, and pretend to be looking out a window.

    And another knowledge check about this Jedidiah... though I think I even recall myself him being the guy who owns a store at the Plaza? I thought he and Pirner were not on good terms!

    Ishmael mentions the Pirner group and does indeed expect the man will need confirmation, as such he tries to recall what he has heard about Jed and his relationship with the other members of the Consortium and especially Pirner.

    no, the two competing merchants are Ezekiel Jedder and Jacob Pirner. Jedidiah is neither of them.

    in fact, you can't recall any specific Jedidiahs that are supposed to be part of that consortium.

    This time Ishmael pays attention making the occasional comment regarding the size of the room, the amount of light coming in and how sturdy or new that place is.

    "How old is the building?" he asks as he knocks on the wall of one of the corner rooms.

    He also takes a generic look of each room in case something important or strange is present.

    Ishmael makes various sounds of concern and murmurs to himself from time to time as they go about their business.

    "Interesting" he says only once and motions they should go on.

    "How high is the building? Is there view in the surrounding area and what kind of well... neighbours do you have?" he asks.
