*The staff in the stables are fairly taciturn at first when Vanitri just tries to listen in, but when he actually tries talking to them, they are willing to talk and are surprised to discover a student who shares any common ground with them, as they are used to being ignored. Apparently, five staff members have gone missing. Sican, a janitor, Baalsh, a groundskeeper, Nalki, a gardener, Vaaran, a night watchman, and Brormar, also a janitor. They went missing one by one, and it's making the staff nervous.*
"I mean word of this. Seems most students aren't much for talking to you guys. Shame too, since you do good work and keep the place togeather. Started a few weeks ago eh? Got any details? I'd think it'd be hard to make some of you guys disapear."
"Well, the staff seems to be almost invisible to them, I think. Or at least, they notice we're there but not that we're people. The ones in charge definitely know, but I guess they're not anxious to cause a panic. What it probably is is just some damn foreigners," he spits on the ground, "They've always been jealous of Medibaria, and I bet they're just too cowardly to actually try something with the wizards here but they still want to make a statement so they take it out on the poor staff what can't defend 'emselves well. Those bastards."
"Well, we don't know where from. They just disappeared, like. They were working in all different places too. I thought the students was dead, no? The other guys from the staff are missing, though, so maybe they were just spirited away, eh?"
"Well, the students left notes, but there's no evidence that they actualy left, or what they did to kill themselves, simply vanished with leaving a note. Sounds pretty similar to me. Keep your eyes open and your ears pealed for me, ok?"
"Not realy, I got a few names, and where they disapeared, but nothing other than that. It's apparently been happening since the last disapearance but no one noticed. I do have someone looking out for me down there those, so we'll hear about the next one more promptly."
