CLUES: The Beginning

"Ah, I have located it. I placed the key in my extra pant pocket when one of the town council members gave it to me. We're just going to have to enter one person short. If Sarg can't get in later, then we'll just have to proceed without him", Pete responds.
"Let me now open the door to this mansion", he adds.

Pete slowly places a tarnished brass key in the lock of one of the large oak entry doors. The heavy door makes a loud creaking sound as he pushes it open to the dim-lit mansion. The smell of damp dusty air blows from the room to reveal a large octagon-shaped entry chamber connected to a larger room.
Pete switches on a tall lamp atop a coat rack that illuminates the large room. Within this large chamber are two smaller doors along one of the walls and a large staircase leading to the upper floor. Also in the room are two sets of Viking Armor.
You enter the chamber when suddenly; the entry door slams closed behind you. Pete grabs the handle only to discover that the door will not open, almost as if it has been locked from the outside. Deep bellowing laughter sounds from the walls as some of you fumble with the door handles. Brickster states, “appears that we are locked within the Crowley Mansion”. :()

Welecome to Crowley Mansion.
I wonder if he's of any relation to the more famous (or infamous) Crowley of California fame.
In any event, this ought to be interesting.
Examining the armor more closely, how does it look ? As viking armors spanned many centuries, are we looking at a variant of the roman lorica segmenta, something closer to brigadine, or further into the scale or ring mail varities ? Or, if its more modern, more of a cured leather recreation, perhaps with bits of bone or brass worked into the strcuture to strengthen it. ? Are the two suits similiar ?

Even though building inspectors of the LCCD were too terrified to have examined this building, I suspect that this place is unsafe. We should get going on this mystery. This rusty old place could come down any moment now.
As for me, I think we should explore the 1st floor with a partner and report any findings back to Brickster. Each group set out to explore divided sections of the 1st floor of the mansion. Now only if we had a map...

However, I think we must keep moving. If we stay in one place, ominous things might happen. Darkness is lurking...ready to strike any moment. Should we examine our surroundings? Or should we report upstairs?
Akkh already asked about the Viking armor. What is your response to this, Brickster?

Akkhraziel examines the armor more closely. One set has a helmet with horns, the other without. Each also carry an axe; one in the left hand and the other in the right.
Brickster adds, "we have an expert in Viking armor among us. Could you tell us something about this armor Bloody Jay"?

Could this be a clue?

It is possible, but wouldn't they have been locked in the mansion to... maybe they're still here...
Bum Bum Bum... (again :-D )
