Dear diary - Most exciting day in decades!

Where I would start? I have to first mention that I haven't been this excited for decades! Finally the day has come to take first glance inside the basement. Start wasn't very promising as I was too much in rush, excited and I managed to fall when going down deep steps in to the darkness. I hurt my knee, but luckily Anyad, Qinaide and Flavya with torch was there almost instantly to help me up and give me some help. I have to say that Anyad has turned much nicer lately... I almost like her. Oh, by Mitra did I really said that? Anyway. Beastie, and Gathord joined shortly as well. Qinaide and Anyad decided to stay outside. We rest started to move deeper in the basement and lighting torches on our way. The air in basement was horrible, just like in outhouse after Gathord visit. Most surprising was to find out that someone clearly lived in there basement, perhaps he/she was after that what I was looking for? In first floor seems there wasn't much interesting, but I definitely take better look all that with time and perhaps I find some clues. We also found steps down to lower levels, but there was mysterious faint mist which Beastie found very appealing and so she stepped in there. That made her feel slightly weak and so we decided this point to leave from basement. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that Beekeeper wife came at this point down and she behaved very oddly, I suspect that honey mead has been tasty lately...
