The rooftops of Sparalong are a nice backdrop for the constant burglar bands inflitrating houses or just spying on people. It also expands the horizon for the gang wars, exacerbated by the hungry urchins and their pugnacious leaders and sponsors. The territories shift borders by the day, depending on clashes and mutinies and false alliances between the lonely thieves. Aside from the turf wars, the rooftops make a great place for stargazing or target practice, depending on the night. Fewer murders and muggings actually occur up here, because of the solitudinous altitude and the sort of clientele it attracts. Of course, some rooftops are de facto off-limits. These may be thoroughly and cunningly trapped, guarded by "soldiers" or other veteran toughs, or simply warded by the grim tales of what happened to the last people who trespassed there.

As the diversion near the south gate draws away several of the urchin gangs, the rooftops look moderately peaceful tonight. All is well. Of course, there may be figures lurking in the shadows... Best not dally too long.

Gerome keeps Minerva focused with a gentle hand on her neck, letting her fly how she felt. She knew the route better than Gerome did, she would be more reliable in directing them to their destination.

Kelsier is still completely at ease.

Below. Is that the glint of arrowheads peeking out of "safety" windows? They don't seem to be trained on Minerva, so she might not have been seen yet...

Best to let these folks to their own devices and not give cause to provoke them. Gerome points them out to Minerva, who does her best to adjust accordingly and stay out of their line of sight.

Kelsier notes them and shakes his head.

Suddenly the wind picks up. Natural? Or the work of an interfering mage?

Another signal comes from below. Caution.

Gerome nudges Minerva, and she does her to best to only glide, to avoid noise. The wind picking up helps with this, at least.

A hooded figure on one of the roofs hurls a fireball into the air to illuminate the wyvern, or otherwise distract. The figure then vanishes, satisfied.

Minerva stays clear of the fireball, and Gerome starts searching for an alternate route. This one wouldn't work for long, had anyone seen them.

A few arrows loose, but land in a vague smattering some rooftops away. The wind shortly dies down.

Gerome keeps Minerva to the original route, satisfied that the danger is minimal, but keeps an eye out for anything else.

Nothing else shows up. The escape goes smoothly thereafter.
