Marc retrieves a length of rope and follows Yrisz's example.
"I will stay to look after these two. I want to check the second story of the bookshop; I don't think the thugs made it into that building. There were five people here a few moments ago: an elderly man, two other men, a woman, and. . ." he flushes a little, "another woman. Most or all of them are the scribes for this place, I think."
In the large storage room under the light of Noxias's spell, Rogur sees that it is unchanged from his last visit. The two boats look like they each have room for one occupant, or two in close quarters. Everything in this room is in good shape, and the mechanism to raise the far wall is well-greased. With Noxias to help, he expects to have the boats in the water within a few minutes.
Outside, Zephyr hauls himself up the stern of the boat. Standing quickly, he shoves back an attempt by the pilot to rush him, and the two of them face off as other boaters in the channel stop and stare.
