To manipulate a man
is a careful project.
Too light a hand, and
he follows his own whim;
too heavy a hand,
and he will turn on you.
-- Chronicle of the Metal Age
It's time for a face to face chat with my old friend Sheriff Truart.
It was cocktail night at Truart Estate, which meant I needed to wait until all the
guests had cleared out. Truart has beefed up security since becoming Sheriff, so
breaking in may prove to be a little... difficult.
Hopefully some drunken guest left me an open door. By the time I find my way in the
Sheriff will be fast asleep. I watched the last guest leave about an hour ago and the
servants are no doubt cleaning up while the rest of the house turns in for the night.
Now to find my way over that wall.
