Carson faces directly one of the two Privates. "Private, who is your Sergeant, and where might I find 'im? I would like to see about 'aving a guard stationed 'ere at the airship until we leave."

[The Sgt Major still hasn't said anything yet?]

Carson sends Smithers into the hold to find some suitable cordage for tying a prisoner, then has a chair brought from the Director's House and placed in the shade of the airship. He orders the Marine to be seated, and ties his wrists, waist, and ankles to the chair, leaving the two Privates to watch him and call out if he makes any effort to escape.

[Carson has called the patent plate that Dennis was examining to the attention of both McPhee and McBain and neither seemed concerned?]

With Dennis secured, Carson will enter the airship to begin inspections as ordered. He will borrow a light to use for inspections if the light inside is insufficient. He will compare the recently delivered boxes to the invoices discovered by Lance Sgt Charley, asking Charley's assistance if anything seems not to match.

Observation 4 (4d6)[3][3][5][1](12)

He will then check both port and starboard guns, removing their covers and inspecting them carefully for damage. He will have Smithers accompany him and double-check everything.

Observation 4 (4d6)[6][6][6][6](24)

He will then check the ammunition supply for the guns, making sure the amount seems correct and checking several random cases that the ammo is correct and seems new and not deteriorated or corroded. He will have Smithers accompany him and double-check everything.

Observation 4 (4d6)[1][3][4][6](14)

He will check any other supplies associated with the guns. He will have Smithers accompany him and double-check everything.

Observation 4 (4d6)[5][6][1][5](17)

Finally, he will take a look at the patent plate himself, applying his intellect and keen powers of observation to try to figure out the significance himself (has it been tampered with? has the original been replaced with a new one? was Dennis simply copying the info?).

Observation 4 (4d6)[5][2][3][4](14)

Intellect 5 (5d6)[3][5][3][6][3](20)

Does Carson have any idea how much longer the cricket game can be expected to last?

Intellect 5 (5d6)[3][5][5][5][6](24)

[Once this all seems to be taken care of, Carson will be ready to go to town with McBean and Smithers as previously discussed.]
