The rotten bridge came up sooner than I hoped it would. The Master Thief is quite the goofball. Too much time spent at the dining hall in college, not enough time studying.
I chose the mildest conversational path and appeared to be in major awe of him. Guppy, he believed me. Back to Shrouded Hills to see if there is an alternate way out.
