Lil Elpur sent the following report to TMN:
The trip to the first pathfinding book in Pitch Cave 1 was a success today. We had a nice turnout and the folks were very friendly and fun to travel with. We brought the pathfinders to the book, and I counted 15 people entering the library to study it! I know a few had already completed Book One, but 11 or 12 pathfinders with more book training was very nice to see.
A big thank you to everyone who came along; it was excellent teamwork from all and an outstanding performance by the whole group.
Inside the PC1 library and some of the pathfinders that were training.
The recovery after the noids nearly wiped us out as we were trying to get home.
Bakunan sent the following report to TMN:

I want to thank the 13 exiles who made this FMOCR trip successful for me on Soldi, the 4th day of Spring, 559. It began just a little bit before noon. It was certainly more of a challenge with a smaller group than usual. It was done very neatly with very few fallbacks considering the time. With a final critical charge, the field was cleared with enough time afterwards for cookies, cognac, and orgaberry gambling. My thanks for the leadership of Falinea's Blade on this trip, the healers who made it possible, and everyone else who came on short notice.

Renowned local Zo Yor has fallen on some tough financial times and is now renting a room from Babajaga. Yor will be guarding the door, among other tasks, to help pay the rent.
Babajaga says, "The rent is paid through dragging me to various places, new and interesting places to fall"
Paramedic says, "I was afraid of that"
Yor says, "I'll try"
Babajaga says, "And chaining me to safety, of course"
Paramedic says, "Of course"
Yor says, "and departing"
Babajaga says, "And that"
Babajaga says, "But mostly chaining me to safety"
Paramedic says, "Well, it seems like a reasonable arrangement"
Yor says, "Well, that's it, Para"
Yor says, "yes"
Babajaga says, "Oh . . . and we have agreed that he doesn't take anything living inside that he plans to eat"
Babajaga says, "Not anything dead either for that matter"
Paramedic asks, "he'll have to gnaw bones outside?"
Yor ponders, "could be an interesting reality TV show"
Yor says, "yes"
Paramedic says, "Hm"
Yor ponders, "grr"
Babajaga asks, "Where do you put all the fish bones, Para?"
Babajaga asks, "Around and in the bed?"
Paramedic says, "Slyph's back yard"
Babajaga says, "Ah of course"
Babajaga says, "brilliant"
Paramedic says, "She has no idea"
Yor ponders, "Slyph, what a wench"
Babajaga says, "Sadly, she doesn`t live here so.."
Babajaga says, "or we could have borrowed that arrangement as well"
Paramedic says, "I just throw them over her fence. You could try it, Yor"
(Babajaga nods thoughtfully)
Yor says, "good idea"
(Yor grunts happily.)
Paramedic says, "She thinks it's some natural phenomenon, bones falling from the sky"
Town has been invaded by various undine this morning.
