Gathering Information

Eolar went back to the temple grounds and sent for his students. They are sitting now in a small room near the church together with Elogyn, expecting a lecture.
"I called you in because I need your help. Elogyn and me are quite known around the town, but you haven't been seen together with us yet and can move unnoticed. We need information!"
The students look confused for a second as they expected a lecture and are caught off guard. Olric is the first to find his balance again: "Of course we'll help. What do we have to do?"
"We need information about the daughter of the baron. You have to be subtle and careful, we can't afford them to notice that we try to gather information and that something is happening. Go to pubs, public places or the various temples and casually try to get information from people who are allowed in the palace - guards, priests, healers, servants and so on. We have to get the following:

- a description or sketch of the location of the daughter's room within the palace and options on how to get there
- information about the room itself, how many windows, doors and where they lead
- are there guards?
- daily schedule of the daughter and the guards
- who would be able to keep her under a spell (name, position, level)
- other information that would be useful about the daughter

Whatever you can find out can be useful. But again, be careful and more importantly remember you are clerics of St.Cuthbert! We have to keep a low profile and need this information, but we don't betray our ideals. We meet every morning after the morning prayer to share what we found. Any questions?"
The six look at each other, beaming with pride that they are given such a task. "We won't disappoint you!"
"Off you go then!". As the students leave the room, Eolar looks at Elogyn: "Then let's see what we can find out from our library and the clerks there. I'm sure we can find a layout of the palace in our records."

I am sure Bodush is more than happy to give a few pointers in the fine art of deception. You could hire him as a visiting lecturer...
