A Sojourn in Sairundan [Judge: Manzanita]

"Very well. In the desert, everything we need to live is scarce. We respect the deaths of these men by helping Shadya yn Hayder give them a proper Sairundani burial and then by using their equipment ourselves so that their memory can live on, and we can accomplish something as if they were there helping us."

Shadya nods, "We should offer them to the sands, so they may return to them. May their remains drift far in the wind."

Shadya examines the scimitar, noting the balance and craftsmanship, she smiles, "A fine smith made this, a weapon of a true warrior." She sheaths it and dons the sheath. "Some of this seems beyond simple craftsmanship. Conould, can you tell if anything here is enchanted?"

Shadya loads the remaining waterskins and rations on the pack camel.

OOC: I think I'm the only one who uses a scimitar, so I don't feel to bad claiming that. :)

Kurgahz uses his increased size while it lasts to more rapidly dig graves for the bodies they found. Sweating from the exertion, he takes a small swig of water after he's done. "I'll take a share of those rations if they're still good. Unless you just wanna put 'em in the group fund or somethun'. As for the rest of the stuff, I ain't got any attraction to anything specific. Just a cut of whatever cash it's worth when we sell it."
 
(OOC: Lasair will wait for the Detect Magic before getting worried about division, though obviously Shadya should get the MW scimitar)

OOC: My thoughts as well :)
 
*Suddenly, Lasair shivers, her eyes widen, and she mouths the word 'Zaeryl'. Within moments, she has regained her composure, and she does not seem to wish to talk about it.*

Shadya prepares camp for the night, as it seems a good time and place to rest as any.

OOC: It was close to evening, right?

"Some shade sounds good to me." Kurgahz voices. "This is pretty neat being this big, Conuld. Next time you do this to me though, please make sure my club is already in hand though. Had a heck of a time weilding it this small. But it helped alot in climbing out of that pit, so it was still better than no help. Thanks." the half orc offers Conuld while digging out some food to eat while they're stopped.

Conuld climbs down into the pit. "It was impressive to see, too. If I had been closer or had had longer to think, I would have dropped my staff down to you. Perhaps you should keep a backup weapon on your person for just such occasions."

Conuld pokes through the pile of looted items. "Rings and bracelets may be more than they seem. I like this camel. Now, what might these potions be?" He holds them up to the light, unstoppers them and takes a quick sniff, but doesn't draw any conclusion.

OOC: and the natural 1s continue!

As Kurgahz covers the bodies with a layer of sand, the winds begin to pick up. In the distance, a great dark cloud can be seen, looming on the horizon. Shadya recognizes it as an approaching sandstorm. Kurgahz realizes that the bodies will blow away, so he simply guides his camel into the pit to find shelter from the coming storm. The others do the same.

After about a half hour, the sound is deafening, and the temperature drops slightly. Then the sky turns to dust. The light in the pit is significantly decreased, but you can still see. The camels are upset, they cower in the southern, deeper region.

You get comfortable, because you may be here for a few hours.

About half an hour into the storm, the relative calm inside the pit is interrupted. Suddenly, a dark form falls the five feet down into the hallway like region in the center of the pit. The form turns out to be a humanoid, and it stands quickly, sees you all, and shouts in surprise. It has a deep gruff voice, not unlike an orc's, but it's face is shrouded in the low-light.

[sblock=Kurgahz' Darkvision sees... ]Kurgahz can see that the humanoid is a half-orc, clothed in dark desert robes. A sheathed falchion is at its side, and a metal shield is on its back.[/sblock]

It looks like it's about to go for it's weapon...

Combat Begins at 12:42:06 PM
Initiative:

Conuld <--
Lasair
Mysterious Humanoid
Shadya
Cludge
Kurgahz


OOC: Actual combat might not be necessary, but combat time is appropriate for the situation. Your positions are suppositions on my part. If you have an issue with your position, tell me, and we can change it. For simplicity's sake, assume the camels are spread out among the southern part of the pit and count as friendly squares. I suppose they can be used for soft cover... If you choose to do that, tell me, and we can figure something out.

Conuld stays where he is, half concealed behind a bulge in the pit wall, and casts Mage Armor, his last remaining spell.

Shady addresses the stranger in "You are lucky to find shelter from the storm. What business have you in such weather?."

Her hand brushes against her dagger, but she does not draw it yet.

OOC: She will if it grows hostile before he turn.

OOC: Still waiting for Lasair.

On a somewhat related note, I have a messed up schedule this week, so I may post infrequently and inconsistently.
 
(OOC: I was waiting for Phoenix to post. Lasair considers it prudent to let the half-orc talk to the Orc-sounding guy. No one can see it, but Lasair winces when Shadya starts talking first--Orcs + Sairundani == war, or so we were told :()
