Alibastar jolts awake. In a hurry, he emerges from beneath the covers and scurries to the window. He opens the window and pokes his head out to try to see anything. (Or, if the window doesn't open/is locked, he just looks out from inside.) (Perception roll 17+5=22)

My bed being under the window (if not, Sam moves me over to it), I look out and up. Perception 2+4=6

[OOC Man, you guys suck at perceiving things]

Torfinn's head is still in a fog from the previous night's drinking. The light stings his eyes as he looks out the window; everything is blurred and spinning. Oh hey... Look! A chicken!

Gwen begins dreaming of her hair in braids and a dress that goes with it. She probably shouldn't be dressed like this for guard duty, though. Wait a second... Is she guarding the latrine?

Nocturne looks out and sees a clear blue sky. Not a cloud in sight. No way it will rain today unless by some force of magic. she looks left and sees Sam scratching his butt and yawning.

Alibastar looks out through the dusk and manages to see a winged blue shape, already miles away, racing across the sky towards Greenest. As he looks towards the road, he sees no travelers, which is odd since most merchants would already be getting a start on their day's travel right now. He hears nothing. Dead silence. Shouldn't there be noise coming from the common room or the sounds of people awaking?

Torfinn realizing he must be drunk still and decides he should go clear his head and suits up to wander down stairs. "eggs today? Yes, eggs with a side of ham if they have it....no chicken, chicken sounds good." He mutters to himself as he groggily walk out of the room.

Alibastar hurries out of his room, running into Torfinn as he's exiting his room. "Did you see that?!" he more exclaims than asks as he darts into the tavern area. Like a bat out of hell, he makes a bee line to the entrance. "There was a dragon!" he yells as he's running outside, hoping to see it. He also takes a moment to observe the surrounding area--namely the empty road he noted from his window.

(Perception 9+5=14)

"What are you doing on about Alibaster?" As torfinn follow him outside to see his new friend looking about, he also try to find whatever put his friend in such a frenzy (perception: roll 8 +1+2 =11)

[OOC Nick I'm going to back you up a bit]

Torfinn and Alibastar exit their rooms at the same time. Entering the hallway they see that every door is wide open, as if everyone left in a hurry. Rooms 22 and 25 are the only doors still closed. The silence is pervasive, only broken by another roar, this one very distant.

[OOC: back it up, back it up, baaack it up.]

"Did you see that?" Alibastar exclaims to Torfinn, "there was a dragon heading towards Greenest!" He notices all the doors, with the exception of only the two, were open, and began down the hall, peering into each room for anyone or anything out of the ordinary.

(Perception again? This one sucks 3+5=8 )

(Occ: got it disregard earlier statement)
"I saw nothing Alibastar, must have been the dawns light playing tricks." After a quick pause "Where has everyone gone?" Hearing a roar in the distance, torfinn turns to face his room. "Damnit Ontharr, if that's what I think it is....." He says to himself out loud.

Every room is the same scene: Beds unmade, wardrobes slightly ajar, and not a person in sight.

"See, Torfinn," he says at the next roar, "a dragon. What else could that be?"
After that remark, it occurs to him he hasn't seen his parents, the Meursaults or Talis. "Where is everyone?" he asks, obviously worried.

"Something is wrong here, what about the two rooms on the end? Could the halfling and the purple one be in those? We should make sure they two have left before checking the rest of the building. Il take 22 if you check 25." Torfinn says as he points with his mace and makes his way down the hall.

As Torfinn and Alibastar try the doors, they find both to be locked. Knocking on the doors yields muffled acknowledgements from inside.

Nocturne is instantly aware of someone (Torfinn, unbeknownst to her) trying the door handle. Sam notices nothing until the knock, at which point he stares, surprised, at the door. He continues to scratch his rear.

Gwenyvere is again startled awake by knocking at her door (Alibastar), this time sure that she actually heard it.

Gwen sits up, grumbling. "Uhg. Grant! We don't have to leave yet, just let me sleep a little longer!" With that she throws herself back at the bed, burying herself in the covers.

Torfinn shouts through the door, "My name is Torfinn, you may have seen me in the bar last night. Something is wrong, everyone is missing, there may have been an evacuation. Please open the door I'm here to aid you to safety. "

"SAM, GROSS! PUT YOUR PANTS ON! We gotta go!"
She grabs her things and unlocks the door.

"What's the matter? Storm magic, huh?" (You see Sam's full ass as he puts his pants on.)

Torfinn, standing shield at the ready, notices sam putting on his pants, disheartened by how over 50 years of military service had prepared him for such a sight, turns his gaze to the purple cripple. "I'm not sure ma'am, sky looks fair but there is a roar in the distance. Alibastar thinks he saw what it's coming from. We are headed downstairs soon as he clears the other room."

"Everyone's gone. I saw a dragon heading toward Greenest, we need to make sure everyones okay," Alibastar said after knocking.
Afterwards, he heads back into his room to gather his things. He equips his leather armor (colored similarly to his clothing) and his weapons, and emerges from his room while throwing his pack on.
"Are we ready to go?"

OOC By "Colored similar to his clothing" do you mean the blue in your avatar?

Gwen jumped out of bed and dressed herself as quickly as possible. She burst from her room, fully awake, and when she didn't see Grant in the hallway, she dashed down the hallway to his room, to find it empty. She went in, closed the door, and threw on the armor and strapped on her weapons before throwing the door open again and calling "Graaant! Where are you?"

[OOC Back that thang up]

Gwen goes up to the second floor to check on Grant and finds another empty room. This one is different, though. There appears to have been a struggle here. The table and chairs are knocked over, feathers ooze from small rips in the large, heart-shaped mattress, and debris is strewn across the floor.

[Roll perception... Sorry.]

Nothing else catches Gwen's eye, and after yelling for Grant up and down the hallway to no avail, she goes back downstairs to rejoin the group.
