    Anima wrestles with the front door and at last it gives, creaking inward on smooth hinges.

    A small hallway is revealed. The hallway is dominated by a stairwell leading upward. There is a whiff of stale air. Two open doorways lead further into the house: one at the far side of the hallway (to the kitchen) and one on the right (leading into the lounge / living room). From their vantage point on the threshold, Anima and Kaze can see into the kitchen, where a grocery bag sits unattended on the table.

    @Mark what you have described is more Strength + Athletics. Its no problem as the dice pools are the same. So consider it done

    Teamwork to access the back window is totally doable. I'm envisioning clambering on top of the ugly extension to reach the first storey window. West Xadun CannibalCat

    So a Strength + Athletics roll will be needed - Target Number is 6. That is, a total of six successes from the Team roll. 5 successes to get people on top of the extension. And 1 success to get in through the window - it is a little harder than first thought...

    The Shaman sees the bag, looks to Kaze and stands aside to allow the much more physically fit man the opportunity to enter first.

    Kaze cautiously steps forward, crossing the threshold of the house and looking around. He tries to see to the back door where presumably the others are gaining entry. He doesn't rush to the kitchen table with the bag on it.

    Gym... day? Isn't that every day?

    Phoenyx shakes her head and braces for the leg up from Star and Morgan, clambering onto the extension roof. The Wiry Arrow gets up pretty easily - though not necessarily the strongest, she was in good shape. Then she lays flat to help pull the others up and through the open window.

    He didn't object as Morgan helped, and they readily boosted the Arrow up and then followed with the help of Phoenyx pulling.

    "Teamwork makes the dream work." Welp. That sounds awfully Thearch-y. "Now, let's see," he mused, slipping in the window and un-slinging his backpack. "Flashlights? Glo-sticks? Oh, hey, there's where she left her brass knuckles. Here," he offered, holding out headband flashlights.

    Kaze steps into the house. Everything is in order: a mix of sparse austerity and cute little knick knacks; the furniture is largely decades old. Possibly a furnished rental or the home of an older person. The Apostate moves a little way into the hall - and yes, he can make out a closed back door. The kitchen appears to have become part of the extension in an obvious case of poor / lazy planning.

    No one accosts him as he ventures into the building.

    There a dull series of thuds from upstairs...

    Out the back, three mages scramble onto the roof of the extension; and from there they penetrate the house through the open window.

    The curtain filling the window is mangey and stiffened ever-so-slightly with a patina of grime. That last note is filed away somewhere in Star's brain - but right now he has other priorities, shimmying through the window and unpacking his backpack.

    Anima carefully follows Kaze in, curiously, carefully peeking around.

    He makes his way to the bag in the kitchen and takes a look.

    He resist the immediate urge to pumping the local spirits for information and does a little mundane investigating first.
