    From Mr. Chatwin:

    "I did not know the deceased. According to the register, his name is Guy Denton, and he checked in at 5 PM last night, right around Supper."
    "Duma would know more. He's the Night Clerk, so he was on duty last night. I left around 6 last night to spend time with my family. He was on duty from 5 last night to 5 this morning. I can have him sent for."
    "We don't...really... have... interior security patrols. Some of our light sleeping guests dislike the sound of footsteps in the hallway every few minutes. We have a few on duty in case of emergency, and each room is equipped to summon help, but overall, The guests are free to roam as they please."

    From Mr. Guy Denton's satchel:

    In the front pouch are a set of business contracts. Apparently, before his passing, Mr. Guy Denton owned a wholesale general goods business supplying general stores with supplies at a discount. According to some old papers, the contract with his shipping partner had expired.

    Matthew Sumner apparently had a shipping company and had placed a bid for a new contract. The contract between Denton and the new shipping partner is unsigned. (Denton and Sumner met in the lobby at 8:00; the meeting ended in shouting. Sumner was in room 317.)

    In a main section was a report from a detective agency out of Makail that had done a thorough investigation of Sumner's business, indicating that they had uncovered some red flags about the business. Included are interview notes from former employees that Sumner had a pretty bad temper, and could turn abusive. Said temper had lost several other contracts in the past. If he did not secure the contract from Denton, his business would be in deep financial trouble.

    Guy Denton and Matthew Sumner were observed arguing loudly in the common room at approximately 8 PM over a deal that went badly.

    Guy Denton was last seen in the common room at approximately 11 PM at which point he retired to his room.

    - The guests in rooms surrounding his complained of noise at around 4 AM.
    - Guy Denton was apparently killed by magic
    - Matthew Sumner is a self professed practicioner (sorcerer) of the magical arts and was observed in the interview room acting nervously while being questioned.
    - A search of Sumner's room revealed little but the bed did not appear to have been slept in. A rope ladder underneath the window sill could have provided access to Denton's room but it does not appear to have been used recently.
    - Denton's room did not show signs of forced entry.
    - The name of a guest that checked in at the same time as Mr. Denton is Rollo Complyn in room 407.
    - Hotel Security does not roam the halls in the evening.

    Yet to be questioned: Security from the night shift, Complyn

    - If this was premeditated then an assassin might have check in days before or may not have been a guest in the hotel at all.
    - Is the common room open to non guests?
    - Is there anything to prevent non guests from going upstairs to the guest rooms?

    Prime suspect: Sumner
    - Means: Sumner is a sorcerer
    - Motive: Crime of passion; deal went bad and Sumner killed Denton out of anger
    - Killing Denton doesn't get Sumner the deal that he needs
    - Now that Denton is dead what happens to the deal? Can someone else with the company sign off on it?
    - Opportunity: Inconclusive. Sumner could have used magic to gain access to the room but any number of people could have done the same.
