Warden Kesten pulls aside Nicholas, Ildrim, Shin and Scarlet.
“Your Grace and my Lords, I have an incident that has come up that I thought you should be made aware of. We’ve been having reports of a number of minor arsons. Now normally, my guardsmen would find the arsonist and deal with him. This is not a normal case, the more my men look into it, the more Beppo’s name keeps coming up. Seems he was seen near most of the arson locations. Plus all the arsons appear to be magical in nature. Luckily, all the fires have been small and contained.”
“I was wondering, if one of you could talk to him. Personally, Beppo scares the hell out of me. Nothing that small should be that powerful, it’s not natural!”
“Your Grace, if you wouldn’t mind, you and I could speak to Beppo in the morning”, Ildrim responds, “If you would prepare the spell Discern Lies then we should be able to at least eliminate him as a suspect. Although from what I understand, Grigori managed to pull off a ruse that implicated Talreth in dishonesty. Someone else in the kingdom implicated Armando. I think it is safe to assume that Beppo would be able to hide his appearance if he so desired. In addition, if he wanted to cause damage, the fires would be much larger. Unless these are actually just accidents while he plays with Benny.”
“Or fart jokes,” says Nicholas.
