    "Or he could look like any other guard by now. We should organize people in groups that know each other and search for any hidden bodies. If we find either someone nobody recognizes or both body and live guard we have our shapechanger."

    The priest nods to the guard.
    "Blessings of Dol'Arrah upon you."

    "In answer to your earlier questions, these people approaching and I were witness to the assault and murder, or attempted murder, of one of the guards. I say that because I do not know if the healers that we sent for were able to prevent the Keeper's cold hand from taking his life. I do know that he appeared to be poisoned when I left him. We chased after the assassin and at the top of the lift, this gentleman here... Chael indicates Malahan and myself noticed that he altered his appearance to look identical to the guard who was originally assaulted. Whether he is a Changeling or just has powerful magic to accomplish this, I do not know. I was able to follow faster than the rest of these people, but I lost sight of him just as he got near to the gate here."

    As Dusk approaches, Chael warns him back and Dusk lays down thirty feet away.

    *That's close enough Dusk. Yes, I know you want to sniff this man, but you cannot do that yet. Just lie down there and behave.*

    "Wait. Who was attacked? One of the city guard or one of my men?"

    If you need a reminder

    Chael's perceptive eyes note the soldier is wearing a badge. Weakly, the soldier takes it off and pushes it into her hand.

    "I know not the ways of your city and do not know one type of guard from the next. The man was dressed like you, blue cloak and chain mail. He pulled a badge off his cloak and gave it to me as he lay dying." Chael says as she pulls the badge out, looks at both sides of it for a moment, and then hands it to the guard. "Here is the badge. I did not have time to examine it. The assassin stabbed the guard with a dagger and before falling unconscious, the guard said that we had to stop an assassination that would throw us all into a war. That is all I know. I suspect that one or more of your guests is in grave danger since the assassin made himself look exactly the same as your fallen guard and then headed directly here."

    The veteran looks at the badge, then does a double take and grabs it from Chael.

    "This is Riork's badge! Riork got stabbed!?"

    He yells at the guardhouse, "Simmons, get this gate open now!"

    He turns back to the heroes. "I just sent Riork in with Malphen and squad three! He's special escort to the Karnathi ambassador and has been involved with the whole planning of security. All of you, come with me!"

    The gate barely opens as the veteran takes off for the main entrance.

    "Well, I did say that you should seal the gates and not let anyone past them, even guards. And I did say that the assassin wanted you to send guards in to check on your guests. I don't know why nobody ever listens to what I say. It must be the whiskers." Chael sighs.

    *Dusk. Come.*

    "He is doing his job... after all, you could have been a shapeshifter yourself." replies Malehan to Chael, trying to not be overheard by the captain, to make sure he doesn't get false idea on the group. "Not, let's not waste time."

    Czern catches up the rest, just as the Karrnathi ambassador is mentioned. He spares a look to the bard then pushes his way forward. The Wolf must be protected.

    Alexia's eyes widen in panic as she rushes to follow the guardsman.

    Discretion being the better part of valor, the stony fighter has remained silent while the diplomatic types did their thing. She gives Olaf a solid tap in the ribs as the gates are thrown open for the party. Rohna subtly eyes the guards as they pass with disdain, she hated the city watch.
    Remember that every facet of our lives tries to become all consuming if we don't watch it. We need creative outlets like gaming to keep the trudge of daily life from grinding our souls into dust...
