The men spun on the spot and looked suprised at Shadow for a moment, it was obvious that they hadn't noticed him get there, probably because they had placed a guard earlier. And then without a word they all raised their handguns and begun to shoot at him. He couldn't be allowed to interrupt their search.

The notebook turns out to be old, with stale and yellow pages written with fading ink. Some pages and passages are barely or completly impossible to read because of water, or something else. The cover is of thin, black leather and has the name "Charles Mainton" written on the inside.
8th of may, 1923. I have found something, something of great value. During the meeting with the archeologist club today we got into the topic of greek mythology. We discussed wether or not any, and in that case which, religious artifacts that might actually have existed, such as the arrow that the seer Abaris of Scythia caught when Hermes fired it, the hammer that Hefaistos wielded in his smithy, if Apollon were actually a king in a golden cart and so on. Of all these things we ruled out everything as unlikely, at least officially. In the bar after the meeting dr.Stevens spoke to me about the arrow mentioned above. Apparently he had found some hints that pointed out that it should still be in existance, which is why he brought it up during the meeting, though he didn't want to say anything to the others. And I thank god for having proven myself a skilled archeologist and good friend to him, since he wouldn't have shown anything to me otherwise, now it's just a matter of tracking it down.
12th of May, 1923. Four days now, four days of research and success. We have uncovered all that we need and now we'll just need to follow the leads to the next clue, and after that it's likely to keep going like a train on a railroad. During our time in the library we found out that the arrow definitley existed, and has shown up in folklore here and there. May it have been a black arrow or just any arrow at all, most great archers or warriors with a bow or crossbow has carried it as an amulet. Removing all the lies took more than a full day, but it was well worth the work. We have uncovered that the arrow should have been destroyed more than once, which isn't unlikely when you consider that it's mostly made out of wood, so the only historically valuable part would be the head. The head itself is supposedly triangular, with the two points at the back slightly longer than the rest of the backside and giving it a typical shape, but the difference is that it's engraved with beautiful patterns in gold while the rest is bronze. *A drawing of a beautifull arrow is beneath the text.*
21st of may, 1923. Me and dr.Stevens have now travelled to Greece in an attempt to find the arrow, today we have visited the library and spoken with a few historians to find out more details about the old folklore, and I must say that no matter how intresting or exciting it was the first two or three times it quickly got dull. But none the less, we found no clue as to the whereabouts, and it was not until later that dr.Stevens came to think about the embarassing fact that the arrow has been passed along several times during the years, and the latest note we could find about it pointed it out as owned to a french knight. To France!
30th of May, 1923. We have finally tracked down the knights ancestors, apparently the story was true. A sign that our guess might have been right. After several days of convincing them to cooperate they agreed to show us the family tomes of the Vascines family, oh the excitment! I feel that we should be on the right track now. So close!
From the date of the 30th the book is more or less readable, but the fractions of words does not tell anymore details, though the smeared ink doesn't go on for more than a few pages, hinting that the book hadn't been written in after that. What this tells is a riddle itself.
