    [ O-kay...]

    After a good bit of grumbling and being passed off to three different footmen, one of them finally draws the short straw and leads you to the tower.

    An hour later, the exhausted footman lets you in the spinning wheel chamber. It is a big round room with three windows and ten spinning wheels. One of the wheels still has a skein on it. A niddy noddy is lying beside the wheel, next to the chair the spinner must have been sitting in. On a second chair a distaff is propped as if the person loading it had just stepped away.

    Looking out the windows you are very glad you don't suffer from vertigo. Nothing human and very few things that aren't human and can't fly could survive the fall from any of them. Careful scanning reveals no greasy smears where they should be if the princess and her governess had inexplicably taken up tower diving. The castle's more conventional defensive towers are well positioned - something would have had a difficult time flying in unseen. Flying out with a screaming hostage, not gonna happen.

    Actions?

    Siri gives the nice man a 5 sp tip and casts Detect Magic before scanning the room.

    [ooooh! I should touch it!

    Can I get any more information about the spindle? What do I need to roll?]

    [Don't bother]

    Mentioning the spindle prompts a response from the still panting footman, "Oh... that... It... belonged to... Princess Aurora.... Got cursed... by a stupid... fairy.... You wouldn't believe the mess... we found... when everyone finally.... woke up... a hundred years... later."

    [ I was gonna have the bard make a quip about the narrative significance of the art of spinning and the particular importance of the spindle, but that's hardly necessary now.

    Anyway, I'm assuming that if there were any other auras, either in the tower or just outside the windows, you would have said so.]

    [would've been nice to get there in time to detect a lingering aura]

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
