Sesto frowns hearing Udit's comment. We recovered the first idol at the Troglodytes and I don't think they would have another idol. No, the reason, and Sesto points again at the map, is that there is a way in to these Vaults from there.
Zander listens intently, and is amazed at all these men and women have accomplished against truly overwhelming odds. He feels a bit of pride at now being one of their number now and no longer having to hide the truth from people.
Not knowing all the abilities of the others he offers, "I can offer a sharp sword to any group needing an extra blade."
For some reason, Zelena offers unsolicited advice: "The Troglodytes are not your friends. They are rude, stupid, and worship the Dracolich as a God. I don't know what deal you made with them before, but if they even suspect that you are not servants of Dretchroyaster, you will have to fight them along with the Cult. They think that the Cult do not worship the Dracolich, but instead mean to manipulate it. I assume that you made them believe that you worship the Dracolich but if they have spoken to the Cult since then (and they probably have), you can expect that they know you fooled them. He is a fool, but Chief Urbone does not like to be made one."
"For me?" Zander says stunned. "Thank you," he adds taking the javelins. "I don't have anything to give you in return, but coin."
He reaches into his pocket and pulls out three gold lions. The squarish coins tinkle as he counts them out. "Here, you see the hole in the center. You thread a string through there to keep the together."
He offers the coins in exchange for the javelins.
Not like I could offer them to the Dracolich to save my life lol
The Lizardfolk, who Zander finds out from Drako is the female known as Shosha, looks at the coins, puzzled as to their use, but she decides that they are pretty and adds them to the crocodile teeth she has on her necklace, as if they are beads. Then she bobs her head toward Zander and hisses. Drako says, "She thanks you."
"They don't need to open the Vault. The stone-faces work from inside it. Dretchroyaster can send his Simulacri through the wards without deactivating them. I've seen it." says Zalena, again offering unsolicited advice. It seems that she feels safer in the likelihood that you succeed.
"I uh, repeat my proposal. We go together through the audience chamber and the alchemy lab. One group precess on into the vaults. The other heads north, to the trophies room and pushes on into the vault here"
(OOC: see post 262 for map).
"This way, uh, we aren't too far, and we avoid having to deal with the trogodytes. If they decide to attack us in force in the audience chambe well then... we are all together at that point!"
"It's simple and effective plan".
[MENTION=6865745]gargoyleking[/MENTION] don't you have 2 characters? Who's speaking?
Mord looks at Udit. "Doing that will merely allow our enemies to surround us and put pressure from all sides. I think you know how that turned out. A concentrated push in that direction may be a good strategy in the short term, but a secondary assault from their flanks will disrupt their ability to focus on one small area."
