While initially not interested in meeting with Philippe Leger, Mr. Vane proved more than willing once Philippe made it clear that it was a business meeting. For the correct finder’s fee Vane was more than happy to inform the Belgian that he’d met with Durov at his home more than once and he suspects he’d be there at this time of night instead of his club. However, before Philippe left, Vane made it quite clear that in light of Piotr Novak not only not fulfilling his part of the bargain, but actively interfering he considered their debt increased.
Before heading over to Durov’s estate, Alistair Windsor called Raymond Spencer up to ask for some help related to Durov’s apparent ability to control or alter memory. Raymond proves unwilling to help out, “Naturally, there is a way to neutralize Geomancy, but such powerful secrets are not given out lightly, and certainly not to an outside of unsatisfactory loyalty. I would be more than happy to send someone to deal with this rogue Geomancer, all I need is the address. In fact, your help in this matter would do wonders for your reputation within our ranks.”
When the group arrives at Durov’s house they can see Renate Kraus sitting at a desk in one of the front rooms with Johnny Skinner waiting by the door, seemingly bored. Taking a moment to get their bearings they see at least three guards patrolling the outside and can hear the occasional bark of dogs.
Almost as soon as they arrive at the estate Jiri almost collapses as some of his lost memories wash over him. He remembers visiting Durov at his home often. Many of the details are fuzzy, but it’s clear that he was taking orders from Durov. It appears that he was Working for Durov Since Bayreuth, just didn’t know it.

Alistair needs to decide if he trusts Raymond and is giving him the address.
