    The older gentleman makes his way out of his store/home (the one you are watching), now in different robes, carrying a bag over one shoulder, he waves a hand at the door as he moves away, and a faint shimmer comes from the frame.
    Assuming you follow him: a corner from his abode, there sits a house with flower beds in front of the windows, he pauses to observe the flowers before making his way to knock on the door.
    A rather pretty, if in her middling years, woman answers, nods to something he says and leads him inside, closing the door behind them.

    Kirnan does indeed follow, beginning to wonder if this is a waste of time. After the door closes, he looks for a window.
    "Can you do science to it?"
    "I can do science to anything."

    There are indeed windows. The woman leads him through the house with him occassionally stopping to make a gesture or comment on something as theu progress. Normally continuing a few short moments are (after) you have regain a c(v)antage from which to act out your voyerism.

    This eventually leads you to looking in through a small girl's bedroom window, she lies on her bed looking very still but otherwise healthy, until the man mumbles something over her small frame, causing her to bolt upright, take a very deep breath and then begin screaming, or you assume she is screaming as you cannot hear anything.

    The woman moves and begins trying to comfort the girl while holding her, as the older man argues while trying to pour a potion down the girl's throat.

    The old man finally pulls out a scroll casts a spell from it on the girl, and gets her calm enough to drink the potion. After which she lies back down. The old man and mother(?) then leave the room, quietly closing the door behind them. A short time later the man leaves the residence and returns to his own building, opening the door with a wave of his hand. The door remains open as dust and other tiny debris are vacated through the door due to a slight breeze.
    The door remains open, the windows curtains and shutters are thrown (opened), and a small statue is set just outside of the entrance.

    "Good day." the old man corrects as he continues walking around behind his counter. He sits on a very plush chair behind it, and relaxes backwards into it. "So, now that the time is reasonable, can I be of assistance?"

    The old mans eyebrows rise in amusement. "Oh. Then I suppose you already know what was delivered..."
    He shrugs, stands and.moves over to a shelf, lifting a glass flask. "People have been disappearing, as you have no doubt already heard."
    He moves back behind the counter reaches beneath and retrieves two small glasses. He fills them with the slightly luminous amber liquid from the flask, pushing one towards you, and downing the other.
    "That is hardly the only happening of note however, I am afraid." He puckers his lips staring into the glass as though it holds answers to some puzzle.
    Setting it down he looks back up from his wool-gathering. "There is a strange malady, inflicting some people, why those particular people, or if there is any pattern at all is... Troubling."
    He pours another glass and this time takes small sips. "It is a magical malady. And as the clergy are having little luck in identifying a solution, I have taken it upon myself in the hopes of sparing more victims... The little girl earlier is an example. Unfortunately, all I have managed thus far is to stave off the worst. There is another..." He waves a hand in search of a word, "partial success, but it quickly reverted and became worse."

    It smells of honey, and fire(?).
    "Where to start..." He grimaces. "He was found unconscious outside of the village a little way. He had wounds like he had been fighting with a bear."
    He taps a finger, "Turns out he had finished emptying a nest of Iron Goblins further out in the woods, and well, he had fallen from his wounds while returning."
    He downs the liquid again and sets the small glass aside. "The man woke up that night screaming. A bestial sound. He calmed him with a spell, and began to examine him while I sent a smith's son to fetch the Cleric. By the time the Cleric arrived the man's wounds had healed. Narry a scar, and looking healthier than he ought...
    When next he woke up he was oddly lucid, but said he heard growling, there was no growling.
    The priest was payed to remove any curses or diseases, and even restore him in case it should be caused by some less visible damage. The man stayed with me for a few weeks, refaining his weight, seemed chearful. He would on occassion go off on his own for a few hours to a day... The next I saw him he had strangely colored eyes and more hair than was appropriate, so I put a necklace on him in case it would prove to be some form of lychanthropy. He immediately reverted but the changes kept on attempting to force their way past the enchantments." He grimaces, "The man had us, I and the build a cage, since such creatures tend to be extremely dangerous. We built it where the goblins had been. When next I went there the gate was broken, and the man was gone. We fixed the gate, and left."
    "I have seen him occassionally, he comes by with someone with the illness before the change takes him. Or he stops by to trade his game for necessities. He hasn't finished becoming the beast yet though, because he hasn't killed his best friend...
    I use enchantments on the doors and windows you see.
    The change forced it's way out of him. Breaking the necklace along with the spells on it. It is worse in him than in others, so I assume that holding it back made iy worse."

    The old man raises a sarcastic brow. "To what point, to make them worry more than they already do at the howling of the beast attempting to reach me, withheld from it's completion by my death? To incite panic, to remove what little reasoning the average individual already has? They would as likely doom themselves in some idiotic agtempt to appease the creature as they would seek death attempting to overcome it with numbers, orperhaps even murder the man who is innocent of any transgressions." He glares weakly, "Would you tell them? Are you willing to deal with the consequences of such an action? Perhaps you would become guilty of two murders by proxy. I will continue my search. As I am getting closer to a solution. I need more moonblossom though. And silver powder... and mithril, and monkshood."

    "Indeed." The man nods, ignoring the sarcasm. "For I can force it to retake human form, and kill it while it is thusly weakened."
    The man shifts in his seat, "Onto other business then. I would like for you to acquire a flower for me. It grows along the vranches of taller oaks and willows. And it gives off a soft glow like moonlight in the dark. It has a white stem, with petals that are silvery on the top, and white on the bottom. The leaves are blue."

    "Potions, much like the one I made for the girl earlier. I am attempting to revise it to such an extent as to entirely remove her condition. It is abating slowly with the current version, but it always returns to it's previous strength, so for now I am keeping it at bay. Originally I was only able to slow the advance, it is already enough for those I manage to 'medicate' early enough." He pauses, "I can pay you of course.

    You head to the Inn?
    A room is 3 coppers a night. 5 coppers per meal, if you want a meal. 1 silver if you want a bath.
    The Inn is an obviously older building, being one of the few around with stone walls on the first floor. It is three stories in height, with a long hall like room serving as the common area/dining room.
    A long fire pit covers the center of the hall, with several bronze hoods above it, which in turn carry warm air beneath the floors in the rooms above, preventing the place from getting cold at night or in the winter... It is never particularly warm around here... Likely due to the heavy foliage, and common waterways.

    Kirnan gladly pays for a room then falls into a chair in the common room, glad for a chance to close his eyes in peace. After getting something to eat he heads to his room for some real sleep.

    You wake at night. The soft glow of moonlight entering through the window.
    The angle tells you you have a few hours before sunrise. (Based on your survival skill, I am ignoring the need for a roll, as you cannot fail.)
    The sounds of night surround you, a soft susserance. A baying howl can be heard in the distant background.

    Kirnan rolls out of bed and splashes some water on his face, cleans up, then gets dressed. His stay in this town was rapidly becoming more interesting than he'd expected.
