Jareth breathes a mental sigh of relief as Vance finally talks. Though it's amazing he managed to keep his mouth shut that long.
As the tent is opened and the group steps inside, Jareth looks at the dead Reygurian dispassionately. He looks at the others and shrugs, then turns back to the man in robes, eyes smoldering. "So you would charge us with treasonous acts based on one man's corpse and the fact that one of our group shares a geographic ancestry with him? That is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard, with all due respect, sir," the fiery-haired and fiery-eyed young man adds, though his tone is anything but respectful. Continuing, "And to do so just after we emerge victorious from a battle in which we assisted the human forces is insulting. Especially so to me, who has more reason than anyone here to hate the Treylor," Jareth finishes with a snarl and spits on the ground.
His gaze turns to Vance and Brend. "Milord Valorn, and Master Brend, I would ask a question of you two. Brend, you are a cleric of some power, I take it. I see the man's body is mostly undamaged... Would you be able to question this corpse tomorrow? I refer to the dead-speaking spell, but I'm not a priest. And there are a few truth-verifying spells you could use on us each tomorrow." Jareth turns back to Dellex. "Those should provide proof that your accusations are a waste of everyone's time," he says, crossing his arms over his chest, scowl resettling on his features.

"I would keep that tongue in check Jareth Kyras," Dellex says his voice spitting venom. "It is been speculated that the invasion by the Treylor is do in no small part to the actions of your family. Your father inparticular, and if it is found out he was a conspiritor, well..." he pauses. "The saying is the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."
"Mage ye sent this boy 'ere, so ye know why he come." Martomum interjects. "Dis dead Raygrr says nutin' abouts us, and who did come to Harkon."
"No you are right," Dellex says almost reluctantly. "But until proof that you did not meet with the Treylor in the woods prior to your visit to Harkon. Until witness can be brought forth that you actually fought against the Treylor. And until proof you are not spies sent here to stop my mission." He stops, obviously about to loose his self control. Visibly taking a hold of himself he continues.
"In short until your claims can be verified you are all still under arrest. Lord Valorn, take everyone who arrived here from the woods into custody, and lock them in your dungeon till we have proof of there claims."
Martomum smiles broadly and chuckling says, "Dat's just it mage. I did nay come 'ere wit dim."

Trinham draws mental targets on Dellex's back as he follows him to the clearing. However, he does his best to keep his expression totally neutral.
Finally the group arrived in the tent with the dead Reygurian. Still keeping quite, Trinham surreptitiously looks round the tent trying to spot anything out of the ordinary.
As Dellex orders their arrest, Trinham decides not to resist. He may not be a very good strategist but even he know they wouldn't stand a chance unless Vance and his party helped them, which he didn't believe they would. However, Trinham does recognise that Dellex is on the verge of "loosing it" and he racks his brains for a safe way of pushing him over the edge. Eventually, Trinham realises that as far as Dellex is concerned, he is a nobody. Collateral damage, nothing else. Therefore, anything he does would not annoy Dellex but may just get him killed.

"Master Martomum speaks true Councilor," Vance speaks up. "He did not arrive with the oth..."
"Then just arrests theses men," he says looking over the group. "And lady," he adds with a look to lore. "Take there weapons and bind them, gag the two spell-casters."
The white tabard soilders are quick to jump at the wizard's words. The group is disarmed and bound. Lora and Jareth are gagged also much to Vance's dismay and head shaking. Martomum cautions them to go along as anything else might be misinterputed.
"Councilor, I am soory but we can not put them in the dungeon at Harkon it is currently without doors. Might I suggest seperating them and holding them at the few places able to hold a person."
"Such as?" Dellex asks with heavy sarcasim.
"The barracks for one, the wayhouse, and the library are all suitable if guards are placed at their entrances. And they all still have doors I believe."
Martomum watching the proceedings folds his arms across his chest as the group is disarmed. "Ye go to fair mage. An'a unce Bear hear o'dis ye been in it 'ip deep."
"You Martomum," Dellex says with a smile starting to form on his lips as an ideal comes to him. "You will be in charge of their defense dwarf. And if they are found out to be guilty, then you too will share their fate."
After the guards are done they start to escort the players back to Harkon. Strange that although the battle is won, as the group marches back to the manor they don't feel like celebrating.
