Adelais is the older sister of Heloise (see below) and they are from the city of Fribourg. She never combs her hair or keeps her robe tidy. She tends to be a pessimist and gives away all of her extra money to the poor. She has a ring of spell storing with the following spells: monster summoning I, shield, and wall of stone, however she has already cast the monster summoning I to get the goblins to help her and she will not be able to recharge it. As spell components she keeps a short piece of copper wire for the message spell, vials of talc and powdered silver (2 silver spanners worth) for the detect invisibility spell, and a clear piece of crystal for the read magic spell. She has a labeled potion of longevity (purple and bubbly, smells like salt water) in a metal flask that she is planning on giving as a gift to Grodderok. She carries four daggers. Her traveling spell book is in a satchel. It contains all the above spells in addition to read magic.

This room looks like it was dormant as all of the larger pieces of furniture are covered with heavy white sheets to exclude dust. This includes two couches and a table near the center of the room, a long table near the north wall, and a large wardrobe near the northwest corner. The walls are decorated by banners displaying the Triskelion coat-of-arms and Tiziano Triskelion's personal emblem, a three headed eagle holding a lightning bolt in one claw and a sword in the other. Four large windows are in the south wall. The drapes are closed, keeping it somewhat dark even in the daytime. Also along the south wall is a fireplace and a metal rack for holding firewood (now empty). Twelve brass candelabras and a glass chandelier complete the furnishings.
The table near the couches holds a metal flagon containing 7 walnuts. Hidden among them is a small ruby worth 250 gold crescents.
On the north table are three worthless egg-shaped glass ornaments and a cask of good brandy worth 5 gold crescents.
The wardrobe holds the rotting corpse of a man in black Triskelion livery. He has been dead for a long time, but it may be possible to tell that his throat was slit. He has a single copper piece in his pouch.
