**In the southern Grand District sits a pair of massive squared off towers, connected at their base and clad in burnished steel that's been etched with swirling runes. This is the Maison Diapason, the home of the Bards Guild in Epicrin.
The insides are lavishing appointed, with performance spaces on the lowest two floors and various rehearsal rooms filling the towers, all specially designed by a city contractor to have perfect resonance and sound proofing.
Designed to act as a massive tuning fork, the Maisons towers can broadcast sound all across the city, and thus the basement of the building has been lent to the city's emergency management department.
Those seeking the guild leader can usually find him in an office off the main lobby, his bagpipes gather dust in the corner.**
Christov and Yoko walked up to the outside of the building. Christov began took in the area looking for anywhere in between the towers that might be a hiding place for the key. He also kept a nose out for the smell of the riddler.
"Long shot. but we were close by. I have an idea I wanted to pitch to you. Roaring maw... It could mean mouth or just a simple opening. As in the two gates into and out of Epicrin. Between the two gates where dreams are forged by tide and wheel... It could lead to something I just don't know yet. What's your thoughts on this?" Yoko asked
"Tide is the part that confuses me" Yoko said "There is no obvious landmarks with water besides the blooming tower... But thinking deeper in the meaning of tide it represents the water levels rise with the moon each month. Tide and wheel could mean time, or the clock tower... But that doesn't fit much of the rest of that line.... Anyways there is a question I should of asked before that I am just curious about." Yoko said leading out
"Very well." The swordsman began for the door, but stopped short and turned back to the bard, lifting a finger at him. "Do not anger me again, or you'll find me a... an angry pomegranate." It didn't take long for a flush of shameful red to fill Alacritas's face, and he quickly jerked back towards the guildmaster's quarters.
