Damasus wound his ways through the corridors of Coeris. A summons from Juturnus caused this detour on his way to Héviz. Totally unavoidable due to his past problems.
Banished to the most dangerous research oppidum in all of Translyvania. Perhaps I'll hear what is happening now.
He made it to the next checkpoint and once again was checked. The guards knew when he left the last one and where he said he was going to they had a rough idea for how long it took to walk the corridors to get here. At least Juturnus' office was just around the corner.
He entered into a small antechamber with several seats near a fire. The door to the inner office was close and he knew better than to just enter. Juturnus' shield grog, Yavor, stood by the door and nodded to him but did not move. Damasus began to speak but Yavor held up a hand and turned his head as if listening. After about 10 seconds, he opened the door and bowed slightly as Damasus entered.
Juturnus rose from behind his desk and came out to greet Damasus. He was still a striking figure. Tall and black. Found in Levant as a child and trained as a spy. He cleaned up messes for the House. Juturnus gestured to a seat and then resumed his seat behind his desk.
I am happy that you accepted the position at Héviz. What do you know about the oppidum and about the aedile, Laterala?
