12 PAYMASTER'S OFFICE. The door to this room has been violently smashed in, and is hanging by a hinge. This was the office of the paymaster. There is a heavy desk and a red padded chair. The ubiquitous shelves hold large books. A metal strongbox lies in the center of the room.
The strongbox is broken into and its contents have been stolen. A false back is present, however, and 82 gold crescents are hidden therein.
The desk holds scraps of paper relating to wages made to servants and men-at-arms in employ of the outer ward. The books on the shelves hold similar records.
