With the Worgs taken care of, you rest easy for the rest of the night. The rain continues for the next 2 days without cease. As you approach the major road that splits off to Charone, you see a couple of carts off to the side of the road.

Sammuel gestured the group to come closer. Why would carts just stop in the road? A broken wheel right at a junction seems a little to convient, keep your eyes open. He studied the carts for a few seconds more, Why don't Oskat, Marsaili and I head to them directly, the rest of you cross to the other side of the road and go around them and investigate from the other end, that way if it is an ambush we won't all be caught in the middle of it.

There are a total of 4 carts.The carts design suggest that whoever rides in them is either wealthy or belongs to one of the Government Offices of Northern Solace.

As you get closer to the carts, you notice that there are no horses attached to them. There are also no noticeable people around the carts. There appear to be arrows sticking out from the third and fourth cart.

Holding back from the carts, Tromble tucks his arm in tight to his still tender stomach. "You d-don't see any large wolf things do y-you??" His voice squeeks in a whisper.

Catching the other groups ttention Sammuel pointed to the arrows and gestured for everyone to fan out slightly to search. "be careful, company might still be here."

OOC: Not sure exactly where Oskar is...I'm assuming that since I went with Sammuel, that Oskar is in the vicinity of the wagons. If he isn't assume he continued forward when he saw the arrows.

"Spensive coaches all pincushioned sans equines, is bad news, but bad news for whom," says Oskar continuing ahead on foot with Mr. Tadakichi. He's looking for signs of survivors and giving those more capable the job of spotting treachery and foul play.

My apologies for the lack of validation. It has been a busy, hectic week. Hopefully I will have something for you the day after Christmas. I doubt I will have time Christmas day to validate.

As you approach the coaches, there is no sign of life. An inspection of it's contents does not tell you very much. There are no bodies near the coaches nor are there any in them.

*There are a couple of PM's I am going to send out to increase the interaction here*

Walking out of the second wagon, Telan walks over to Marsaili and hands her a letter with an unbroken seal of the Democracy of Northern Solace.

Sammuel observed, "interesting and these arrows look like they came from Cromwell. Not that I would jump too hastily to conclusions - its a common trick to steal the enemies arrows or make yours look the same."

OOC: Is either the Democracy of Northern Solace or Cromwell part of common knowledge? If so, what is to know?

Tromble continues to rummage through the wagon. "So what do you think happened here? Odd for all of this stuff to just be left behind... almost as if the people just vanished." Tromble gasps "You don't think they were taken by spirits do you?! Maybe these are haunted lands! Do you all smell something dusty? Do ghosts smell like dust? Maybe we should get out of here?" Tromble quickly leaves the wagon mounts his pony.

Your search of the carts did not bring about much information as to what happened to them. There is a mysterious letter from the Democracy of Northern Solace addressed to the Prime Minister of Southern Solace. Although the letter would seem to be important, it strikes most of you as strange that such a letter would be left behind when not even the people were.

OOC: I would like to let you guys get some roleplay interaction here before making the next validation. So here is what I would like to see. Make a decision as to what you would like to do regarding the letter. You guys should have some opinion on it. Once a decision has been made and agreed upon, I will either continue this thread or fast forward to Charone (depending on the decision)

"I've not had much use for countries and federations and drawn boundaries of that sort, so I don't know much about North or South Solace. Marsaili, you seem like the sort to keep an ear out for the comings and goings of these sorts of things. Is there anything going on with the Solaces or the Democracy that makes you think thrice about what's really going on here," says Oskar. "My gut, senses that the letter was most definitely left to be found and not meant to get to where it's addressed."

Oskar sits on the ground and leans against a rock to massage his back. Mr. T continues to sniff around the area. "Feh. Let's open it."

"Telan, did you find this letter in plain sight or was it hidden? I only ask because if it was in plain sight and left as everything else, then either the person who left it and the person who made that person leave, did not care about the letter - or they left the letter to be found as Oskar has stated. If the letter was meant to be found then it was most certainly meant to be opened. Also if it was meant to be found and opened then it is probably trapped. Now of course if the letter was hidden, then it was most likely not meant to be found and is most certainly trapped!" Tromble flinches back from the letter. "Just keep it away from me..... is anyone trained to deal with this sort of thing?"

Hannah appears to be mulling it over to herself during this interaction and then says, "None of us is a representative of Solace, so we have no right to open this letter, but I do believe we have a certain moral obligation to make sure the letter gets to its rightful destination."

"To answer your question Oskar, North and South Solace have been at peace for years. About the only country that is 'hostile' towards anybody is Cromwell, ant that is through rumor only. It is said that they are building up an army in secret."
