The night is still, save for the singing of the crickets and the occasional clank of armour as you make your way around to the back of the compound.
There are still no signs of activity evident from the house as you approach the rear. The plant life is even wilder back here, with overgrown grass and weeds supplementing the cover provided by the vines on the fence and the untended topiaries. The back of the house does not meet the fence, as you thought, as there is at least a twenty foot gap between the house and it's perimeter. Your trip around the compound is not in vain, however; several of the gates' upright posts have been torn out of the ground, leaving a gap that can be exploited. Entry will leave anyone exposed for a few moments until they can reach the cover of the untended shrubberies.
