Darik washes up and shaves before dinner. Leif Boyden gets Laser to recon the city for escape routes or odd goings on in exchange for bacon and beer. Leif stuffs bacon in his pocket during dinner and puts his full beer mug upside down in the other pocket. Darik pulls him out of dinner. Kalna keeps drinking with the captain at dinner.
Laser reports city is blobby but mostly centered around big church. No major thoroughfares. Activity throughout city. Obviously major underground structures. Leif rejoins party as they exit dinner and retire for nightcap and pipes.

Kinsen talks about ‘Ol Boys’ faction of church with their own candidate. They are most likely to start craps and are most traditional faction. There might be catacombs under old church aWe head to their last known hangout out, an small old church in the east city. Darik hears noises inside and sees two figures grappling in the center.
