After settling quite decently within the cage-like confines of Urban City, he had a feeling that he needed to go out and enjoy the much fresher air that should exist somewhere within this realm. That was when he encountered the job offering. Well, it was not so much as work if he had to be honest. The travel agency told him to come here if he wanted to look for places where he could... 'escape' from the city. His offer was rather good, and he took it without much of a second thought.
And of course he took into account the economic classes of everything and the less than decent meals that he would be forcing himself to eat. Yeah, just like his youth alright...
Anyways, here he stood, upon the foot of the manor. If this was a manor at all. This towering building looked like a castle. And seeing how aged the wood was, how the weeds and ivy had taken over the walls and roofs, and how there were no guards stationed anywhere, what the agency told him was indeed correct. This manor was abandoned.
As to what he was doing here in the first place, well, this place was supposed to be a library now. And all he needed to do was to find a map. Taking a deep breath, he pushed open the creaking doors to the dimly lit... great hall? Great. Shelves of books were tightly packed in this grand room, with an atrium to several more floors above. The gap between each shelf was very thin, that anyone in here would have to be shifting sideways to find anything. And to make matters worse, the labels and signs on each shelf had long since been faded. There was a book on the floor just before him. Even the title had eroded away.
Sly huffed a loud sigh. Suppose he should get started...
