Possum whistles tunelessly as they trudge towards the temple.

OOC: So, 800 GP for the wand, correct? 1st level wand of CLW? Did I miss a post that confirmed that was what I was paying? I just want to have a definite "yes" to link to.

(OOC: Possum paid 800gp for the wand, and 50gp for the Make Whole.)

"Scrate? He's just a businessman, is all," Vaxson replies furtively. "Halina will be able to tell you more," he adds as he looks around.

Karl gets a nice selection of vegetables for his gold, and the party heads back to the temple. Halina is busy cleaning in the front as they arrive. "Oh, Mother bless Vaxson, he came through quite wonderfully! Please, I do hope you'll be able to join for dinner. Don't worry, we'll have plenty with this, and you have been such a help."

Clearly, though, as Halina takes the herring and vegetables to the kitchen, the children's excitement has been overwhelming. Tagrin runs around, casting spells at everyone and everything. Garrold is outside, wielding a stick against a tree. Rhiana comes up to Possum. "Hi! How do you get everyone together to hunt for treasure like normal people?" Morlan hangs around, replying, "I got the map right here, we can hunt for treasure right now."

Lily tries to shield herself from the kids and casts mage hand targeting a ball or some other small object. She then floats the object by the kids and tries to play a game of keep away.

ooc: I'm half tempted to give the Halinite a night off and cast sleep on the kids. Boy, wouldn't day care be easier? :p

Gutting herring, Halina looks askance at Oskar. "Scrate? Well..." She stabs her next herring with more force than necessary, and pulls him into the kitchen, away from the children. "He runs a business in magical components. However, his real specialty is magical components for dark magic."

"He supplies necromancers with corpses, assassins with poisons, and apparently has a stock of blood of exotic beasts. He'll know which glyph will turn someone inside out, which methods are best to contact various gods, all sorts of things."

Halina sighs and shakes her head. "If there's any lesson of ours that got through to him, he's an honest businessman."

She plops the herring into the pot.

Garrold stares as the ball floats in the air. "Wow! Die, foul fiend!" he exclaims as he rushes after the ball with his stick. Tagrin just watches Lily in awe. "How do you do that? Can I learn or is it dragons only?"

Possum, not much bigger than the children, gets distracted with them, and smiles another huge grin. The freckles on her nose and her cheeks seem to dance as she smiles and laughs.

"You want to go on an adventure? Because, you know... I've heard many tales about a troll..." her voice sinks low. "And you know what I've heard about this troll? She lives.... right in this temple!"

Possum looks around nervously, and then whispers to the children confidingly. "The troll has half of our treasure map - and we need the treasure, because if we don't get it, the city shall perish! Will you... Will you help us in finding the troll?"

Possum then smiles. "You will? Follow me.... but be real quiet." Whispering, she starts skulking around the temple, jumping at shadows and occasionally calling out "What was THAT!?" and stabbing at shadows.
 

Vindala decides to leave the talking to Oskar and watches her companions, especially Lily, fearing she will misread the kids play (kobolds, can’t be too careful).

"Scrate's men surrounded us at the pier, after the map I suppose. At least two of them were evil, confirmed by Azwan. I ask you, as holy person, is Scrate evil as well, or is he just . . . lenient with his employment policies?"

The children all gather around Possum, as she leads them off on a merry adventure.

The tall, dark-haired, stick-wielding boy, Garrold, comes up to Dianna. "Come on! Let's get that troll! By the way, can you show me how that chain works?"

Tagrin continues to pepper Lily with questions about magic.

Rhianna grabs Karl's hand. "C'mon, you've fought trolls before, come help us! Pleeeaase?"

Halina lets out a sigh of relief as Possum takes the lead in babysitting. She turns back to Oskar. "Your companions are wonderfully helpful. Thank you. Regarding Scrate, I've never seen his aura, but you don't need to see it to know where evil lies."

"I'll need to discuss Scrate with my partners, but I'm hesitant to deal with him. We're expected at his shop, we'll have to decide soon.

Are you ready to translate the map for us?

Seeing the children grab Karl, Possum grins slyly. "great! We'll trick the troll! If we can get Karl close to the troll, Karl can slay him quickly!"

She gathers the children around. "Now... how can we make Karl look like a troll? He's certainly tall enough. And he has a deep voice, like this" Possum puffs out her chest and makes a "grumpy face".

"Does anyone have any ideas?" Possum asks, winking at Karl.

Dianna smiles. "I'll help you fight the troll, but I don't know about the chain. I wouldn't want anyone getting hurt by mistake."

The afternoon moves surprisingly well, with the children entertained with adventures throughout the temple and stories. Halina is very grateful, as it makes her job much easier for the day. She prepares a hearty meal of herring and vegetables, and everyone eats well. Although the children want to stay up and listen to more adventurer stories, they grow sleepy on their full bellies. As the sun sets, the children turn in, and Halina cleans up.

Halina lights a lantern and gathers everyone around a dinner table. She takes the map, and prays. She looks over the map and starts to read.

"The words... they are all over the place, written in every direction. Let's see...

'Take the path south through the howling canyon, wailing for Scilivanthrok.
It waits below Severus, hidden from everyone. A treasure greater than gold.
I have hidden you, sweet friend, with your belongings. Play well in the afterlife.
Your time is past and future, may your rest bring you strength again.
Fallon is at the peak, Orussus is under the waves.
Scilivanthrok is forgotten, lost to time, and he shall find time again and crush it.
Come, free Scilivanthrok from his prison! His eyestalk awaits!
O walk with Sister Phyrah, and fly to the lands of air!
O rest with Sister Ulura, and let the moon guide your journey!
O toil with Sister Ayratha, and pour the flame on the rocks!
O fight with Sister Shurassa, and let the waters rise!
O speak with Sister Russna, and chant the thousand names!
O break with Sister Sela, and topple Severus' Plateau of Stone!
For there is one of seven with eyes of eight, torn from her sisters' fold.
She has heard your prayers, and will hear them again with newborn ears.
Scilivanthrok, great prophet, you are a beacon for us all! Let your eyes upon eyes lead us to her!
Awake, Scilivanthrok! Awake, Ahrianna! Past and future arrive!'"


Halina, stunned, looks up from what she has just read.

"Ohh... dear."
