It has been a day of social business. We went
to speak to the elf, Reefugo. He runs a small colony of artists
at the northern edge
of town. He invited us to dinner. This of course concerned
me because he had perhaps poisoned Bastia.
Goru had another one of his visions, this of five
hands crushing a black flower
that represented Bastia. Rawena became quite agitated at this,
thinking since she had found only four causes of death, that she had
Then, Petara Dra, the pudding maker, told Pireseri
about seeing the Doctor Tesan in disguise with Bastia as
Bastia was leaving. Hosei returned to speak to the doctor -- he
has a good way with these simple people, and clearly has something in

Rawena re-examined the body, and found that Bastia
had been poisoned twice with manbane. So we now know that Bastia
was killed in several
ways. Reefugo poisoned him in the meal; Dr. Tesan poisoned him
with delayed effect with medicine; he was darted, probably by Tausika;
he had a blow to the head; and he was stabbed with a weapon style
dagger (not an ornamental one).
