    Default Elja's Room

    On the fourth knock, the door swings open on its hinges. The room is empty.

    There's nothing there but a desk, a bed, a few books on sword fighting, and about as much decoration as the inside of a cardboard box. But you get the strangest feeling that Elja is...hiding something (Perception DC 25).

    It becomes clear that it is more likely that a tumbleweed will roll through Elja's room than that Elja will appear.

    (no point in rolling, as my modifier is just +4)

    Sarvine looks around the room as she walks in. It was a new experience to be able to see the room of the more martial of the White Stars. Whereas her room was full of books and ingredients, Elja's was bare except for the essentials. Was it like that for all paladins or was theirs just particularly zealous in that respect?
    With a shrug she steps into the room and idly scans the place.

    (Detect Magic, cause why not?)

    Sarvine's Detect Magic picks up a slight ding from something under the bed.

    The witch stops and stares at the bed. With a quick glance back at the door she tosses the underwear on the bed and dives underneath to pull out whatever the object was. Hopefully it was something tasty, like a magic lock on a journal or a memento of something.

    Tucked behind and between the bedsprings, Sarvine does indeed discover a thin, unmarked, leather-bound book with a rudimentary magic lock (DC 12).

    A bead of sweat rolls down Sarvine's face as she stares at what could be Elja's most personal secrets- his innermost thoughts. On one hand, it would be rude to invade a White Star's privacy. On the other, she didn't have a way to replace the spell. But unless Elja himself could cast the locking spell (Which she doubts) that means he has another way of casting it, which meant she would just have to pray she didn't get caught.
    "Screw it, time to live a little..." The witch mutters as she dispels the lock with a wave of her fingers. After a second's thought she gets up and shuts the door behind her, and drags the underwear alongside her under the bed as she opens it and begins to read rapidly. At the first sign of the door opening she's ready to go invisible and get out.

    The curious little book reveals pages of notes and statistics on the members of the White Star. Sarvine easily finds the pages dedicated to herself. Therein has been noted her demonstrated strengths, weaknesses, personal tastes, somewhat snippy commentary on her physical traits, as well as Elja's theories on how best to neutralize her in the unlikely event that she become a traitor to the White Star.

    Sarvine puts a hand to her chest with a mock gasp.
    "The audacity! I AM more physically mature than an albino 12 year old, thank you very much!" Muttering to herself she keeps reading, paying particular attention to the weaknesses section. She wants to know what she can improve on...and what to rub in Elja's sanctimonious face.

    Under weaknesses, Elja has written but a single word: Bufo.
