You did an excellent job on retrieving the ledger from our mutual friend. In the future, it may not be the best of ideas to store such things in your bodice though. After examination, I’ve determined that there are a number of arcane enchantments upon the ledger which prevent it from being read. Some of them also seem to involve a self-destruct spell to consume the book if the right “password” isn’t given. Such things tend to behave erratically when exposed to other spells.
There is one mage that I think that we would be able to “recruit” to help us. Lillian Haberdash is someone I know who has the skills and wouldn’t mind a challenge such as this. Sadly, we had a falling out years ago and she may not be up to helping without a bit of “encouragement”.
We also have an opportunity that Ari has presented us with. Lucian has a certain regard for her, with her saving his life, as well as a certain debt to her as she was poisoned in his house during his own party. If we can acquire the resources to set her up with an identity that matches who she was at the party, we might be able to get more information from Lucian in the future.
If your group needs anything, please stop by and inform me of the details.
