Off on the right side of the room there is a flat area with all sorts of strange magical symbols scrawled on the floor. Right in the middle of the drawings there is a small brazier which is not lit, but is giving off a thin wisp of silvery smoke. p.
The only creatures in the room are a pair of large, floppy eared bunnies.

As you come in the room Ybor himself comes down the ladder. He is short even for a gnome, and rather plump. His wrinkled skin leaves him looking like a big white raisin, with a mop of silvery hair on top. He bounces to the floor and hurries over to you. p.
