"I guess we found her problem," Kit mutters. "You don't happen to be able to sign, do you, Gordon?"

"Nope," Gordon replies, looking at the woman across from them. "Though I don't quite see how we're supposed to help her."

Turning to the vocal patron who seemed so interested in laughing, Gordon asks, "How long has she been like this?"

"She just appeared one day, no one really knows where she's from." A patron nearby replies, "She can only communicate with written languages, which apparently she knows a lot of. She cannot hear or speak, yet she just watches the performances regularly. I don't think she knows her name, but she seeks a 'Varius' person... which is the only name available, and people sort of just refer to her as that. It's wierd, I know, that sounds like a male's name, but what are you gonna do?"

"It sounds like the rumors we heard on the street were slightly confused then," Gordon comments to Kit. Calling for some paper and charcoal from the inn keeper, Gordon sits down at the table and scrawls the first question that comes to his mind when they arrive.

The woman stares at you blankly as you block part of her view to the bad performance. She takes out a set of desktop writing kit, fully supplied with a writing board, several parchments, two ink pens, and a flask of black ink. The board seems to be made of exceptional lumber and glows slightly in the dimly lit room... indicating its unusual, most likely magical, property. She writes with almost perfect penmenship and turns her board to you. The content of the writing, however, cannot match the script at all.
“ Originally Posted by Woman "Who am I? Where can I find Varius?" ”
The patron who replied to you earlier peaked over, and chuckles, "Yup, let's see, this is probably the 10th... no, 20th time I've seen that. People are saying this Varius must be some kind of Miracle priest for the head, if people like her is searching for him."

Well, if the first obvious question wasn't about to get a proper answer, maybe the second would.

“ Originally Posted by Gordon Who is Varius? ”
At least we've figured out what started the rumors. Too bad they were so confused on the street.

Peeking over Gordon's shoulder, Kit squints at the writing to follow along.

The board clears itself with a simple touch, allowing the woman to write down her reply.

"That doesn't really answer my question," Gordon mutters, frustrated at not making much headway. Insistantly he presents the woman with the same question again.

The woman looks confused, and hands you another reply.

Confused, Gordon replies with the only question he can think of.

The woman shakes her head with an even more puzzled look on her face and replies,
“ Originally Posted by Woman I... don't know. He is the only one I know, I have so many questions for him... why I am here, why was I locked away, why do I have the dream everyday... ”

"This sounds vaguely familiar," Gordon comments when he reads the woman's response, "Kind of parallel's our own situation, doesn't it Kit?"

The woman pauses as though unsure how to answer that. Her response further confirms her doubts.

Completely frustrated by the lack of any answers in the woman's responses, Gordon turns to Kit, "Any ideas?"

Staring at the scribbled messages back and forth, Kit shrugs. "Maybe she is crazy," he suggests, only half-kidding. "Think maybe we should try to bring her to the guy who sent us over here?"

"I don't know... I get the feeling that he was taking advantage of us. It seems clear to me that the rumors we heard on the street about Varius, were confused versions of this woman's story. I'm not sure that he's actually going to be able to help us, even if we figure out a way to help her."

"I know of a spell that could help her," Kit muses, "but I don't know it myself. Maybe if we could find another way to cast it on her?"
