I think I've caught up to everyone now. Set it up for Tohmas to be looking for information along with treasure. I think that updating the maps for Mad Dog would be valuable too. Information can be traded and sold too. Bards and Mages usually write so it might be natural for them to update their maps and chronicle our travels. Every epic tale is told by song from Bards. Tohmas would just do pictographs on his map. Barabarion symbols for things such as mountains, caves, dwellings, ect.
The sneek peck said that Crow and Tohmas couldn't tell how old the ruins were but could they guess about how old they seemed? 100 years, over 100? They would resemble something.
Also we should remember this is an island and resources are not plentiful, so recycleing would be natural. The wreckage would show it was not easy to get stuff by sea and the mountains restrict land travel. So both Tomas and Crow may come to that conclusion. We need to look for trails and other signs. So we can decide which way to go next. Hopefully Hammer will give us some good clues in his post or we can ask questions here.
