Pada with his enhanced Perception starts to examine the garden for the second time, this time more thoroughly, there can’t only be flowers growing around here.
Perception roll 19 (+2 bonus for 21). Pada looks around the garden with gusto for anything out of ordinary or suspicious. The rain however makes this task quite the chore! But nothing get's past his keen eye! Scouring the entire garden (aside from all the flowers, shrubbery, and decor), Pada notices some interesting details:
- 2 of the bushes hide chests. Upon inspecting them closer, they don’t look to be trapped. Opening them up, he finds a 10 gold and 5 small crystals (worth 25 gold a piece). Looks like the staff were stealing and hiding some items in the garden!
- The stable is locked! There is a large padlock on it. Looks like a key could open it up. Or perhaps something big and heavy could break the lock. There doesn’t seem to any other ways into the Stable though from the looks of it.
- The guard house seems to be locked in the front as well. Looks like a key will also be required to open this one. However, it seems locked from the inside and it doesn’t look like this door will be easy to break down… From your observation there doesn’t seem to be any other entrances.
- You can see a large muddy pathway in front of the stable. It looks like the routes that the horses must have took around the castle grounds! The pathway leads off the Castle Grounds to a bridge that leads towards the forest. However, the bridge is broken. Looks like someone… blew it up? Man… this castle was surely well protected from anyone trying to invade… or escape.
