Miklos was disappointed at not finding anything in the master bedroom and he pondered the problem. A mage who could light his entire dwelling in magical glow globes was entirely capable of hiding his gear magically.
“Gentlemen, and ladies. Before we depart from the upper halls of the tower I shall perform a magical detection incantation. This hopefully will reveal any illusionary walls or magically hidden devices. I cannot believe that Dentiata had no spellbook or kept no notes. He may have altered their appearence somehow.”
Miklos opened his book and mouthed the commands formulating his Detection Spell.
While Miklos prepared his spell, Maruc replied to the Elfmaid. “It seems Ashira does not wish to go back Saeth so you are saved a long journey, but anyway our search for the Sons of Night may well take us there. If Ashira choses to stay with us her knowledge of the Barony would prove invaluable. But why, I wonder did Dentiata move here? There must be a good reason, you don’t just come along and build towers ‘in sight’ of Specularum and expect not to be noticed.”
He voiced a thought to Ashira. “Ashira do you know why he moved with such speed?”
“With Dentiata, everything was done with urgency. He was not a patient man.”
Feldard sighed at the mage’s announcement but Miklos had a point. So the dwarf waited by the stairway up as patiently as one of his temperment can, tapping his booted foot as the minutes passed.
His spell cast, Miklos scanned all the rooms and hallway of the second floor. The only magical residue he detected came from the glowglobes placed throughout. The group was now ready to either take the stairs to the third floor, or go down to the dungeon.
