    "They wents back through that door," says Red, pointing out the door that Manachan and Ignatius entered by. A Grey Maiden stands in front of it. "Thinks they may be comings out again." He scratches the side of his ratty snout. "Korvosa, she's an old city," he says. "Built on top of Shoanti ruins, and they says there are Thassilonians ruins under them. When they builds a new bit, it's over the top of the old, and on top of that, and on top of that. And the old stuffs gets forgotten."

    Manachan

    The mask makes it hard to read the physicians, but from speech and body language they are definitely hiding something. They don't seem that concerned with the sick, either. Any ministrations that you saw whilst in there were perfunctory at most.

    Ignatius, in Celestial
    "They're hiding something, and they don't seem worried at all about the plague victims. I say we get on our way out, whistle up Edmond and the others when they open the door, and demand to know what they're hiding. If they refuse or if they attack, I'd be fine with making our case in a more . . . physical way."
    "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

    " Yes, that might be for the best. They did seem to give the impression that there would be more of them in the morning. And, as well, if they are up to something nefarious, I am not sure I want to be stuck on the outside trying to break in at that time. "


    With that said, Ignatius secures his shield in place, and makes sure he has everything he left behind. He motions to Manachan to get the door, and prepares himself to run interference at least until Edmund is in, standing in front of the door leading further into the main area of the warehouse.
    -Kaodi

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    Manachan collects his bata, securing them to their strap across his back, then opens the door as though to usher Ignatius through. At the last moment, as his new friend turns to guard, the sorcerer whistles loudly and calls, "EDMUND! You're needed inside! Bring the others as well!"

    Mhairi

    "Are you sure" Mhairi blurted, before darting over to the edge to see if the two were visible outside the building.

    "I don't see them. Maybe I should go in and see."

    At that moment, she hears Manachan calling and heaves a huge sigh of relief before slithering down the wall quicker than is really safe - everything about old Korvosa forgotten in an instant.

    "Glad to see you guys are alright. I lost sight of you at the end and worried! What's going on in there? It looks more like an orphanage than anything/"

    The ifrit oracle turns himself towards the door and readies himself to invoke a spell of sanctuary as soon as soon as one of those inside tries to open the door.

    I hope my best impression of a wall is enough to hold them back while we regroup...

    Edmond rushes at first call, grateful for his harsh training and Irori's will that helped him maintain his focus through waiting.

    "What's up? Going in?"

    @Axel, wasn't the idea for you to stay up and sneak shoot few maidens from above?

    OOC: That is still the plan. Mhairi just got a little carried away and excited.
