Merin, who was about to suggest to Indigo that she should befriend the Jaguar, takes note of Vadin’s discovery, giving it top priority.
“I will scout ahead and check it out,” Merin says.
Tor nods in agreement, as he watches Merin quickly (but quietly) move laterally from the party in the direction that Vadin indicated.
Sheldon and Indigo dismount. Indigo takes both horses and moves toward Merin's and Vadin's, collecting both and bringing them aside with the three colts that are being used to carry supplies. Once this is done, she and Sheldon take up a position facing downhill to the left of the center of the party. Indigo draws her sword in preparation of possible danger.Vadin says to Merin, "I will go with you as well."
Vadin goes with Merin to scout out the area where he senses the encampment.
