He sees nothing
2050 PC’s turn up to visit Donnah and the Professor, leaving Alfa on watch as a storm breaks
They talk in the Professors study.
Donnah is worried for her grandfathers safety but he is dismissive and says it will be fine.
The heroes ask why and what he knows about the dig and the scrolls.
Professor Avery decides before he can trust them they need to prove they are trustworthy, so he asks that they share their secret ID’s.
Grenade starts but the Prof interrupts him by telling him his normal name, ‘Doug Macarthur, you are known to me as is your chickened history’. Stretch goes next telling the Prof that he works in the Uni with him and his name is Stuart Bailey, ‘ah yes you are in the science area aren’t you?’
Airgirl can’t revel her name so just puts her hand through the coffee table, the Professor understands and smiles at her.

The Professor tells the story of the dig and his past as the heroes asked.
The dig in Turkey found a 2000 year old tell and amongst the items in it was a golden cask, in it was 5 scrolls and although the casket was kept in Turkey the scrolls where sent here to the UK one to me. However you already know all of this, I am not a linguist so I can not decipher the scroll however I do not think it is a record I suspect that it is a spell or part of a spell and that is my area of expertise.
I had better tell you a bit about me and why I know this scroll is safe.
Years ago I was the 1930’s mysterious occult adventurer Doctor Arcane, I encountered a evil sorceress known as Ch’andarra I beat her time and time again. AT last she hit back at my most vulnerable point, my family. She murdered my son and daughter in law and took my 3 year old granddaughter to an extra dimensional plane. I followed and after a seemingly timeless struggle I regained my granddaughter after surrendering part of myself, which is why I am wheelchair bound. for the last 15 years we have lived quietly here having given up my old life.
2115 the door bell goes Donnah goes to open it with Airgirl keeping an eye on her
Its Andrea Crusoe, Donnah’s friend, turns up wet from the raging storm. She has been joking and has got caught in the massive thunder storm as she was nearby she came here to escape the storm and get dry.
