Junis says, "Couple of em"

Femereff says, "his bones are there"

Arimantis chuckles.

Sarnth begins chuckling at Junis.

Mikaylyn just tried to kick the canvas!

(Rills picks through the smouldering ruins of the tent.)

Earedsil says, "They all over that nasty island..ya can burn that down"

You say, "Can't say I blame the poor wretch."

Kippe says, "He committed murder"

Kadesha says, "Dwarf murderers"

Kadesha frowns.

Arimantis gazes up into the heavens.

(Femereff points out the bones)

You ask, "Lord Thurfel, may I ask why these artifacts have such great value?"

Shonison says, "I'd say he hopped the boat to Teras if he was seen here"

Kippe rubs Kadesha gently.

Femereff glances at Thurfel.

You squint at Thurfel.

Kadesha says, "I used ta tink hobbits were ok folk"

Sarnth says, "go on...get outta here"

Femereff says, "no need to search farther"

Faerinn says, "Lotsa dwarves in Teras."

Sarnth nods to Thurfel.

Sarnth points west.

Kadesha says, "least I don get a stiff neck lookin at em"

You ask, "But ye will not say, I suppose?"

Arimantis says, "I was havin a nice ol time learnin bout history or some such"

Sarnth says, "gate is that way"

Arimantis mutters under his breath.

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Deevian says, "Rills, wha a feeble attempt at avoiding punishment"

Deevian snickers.

Junis snickers.

Arimantis begins chuckling at Deevian.

Thurfel says, "Without the artifact that was stolen..."

Sinzarie asks, "where is the guard anyway?"

Junis says, "Bah your lil helper dropped it"

Thurfel says, "it will make my efforts a bit more difficult"

Thurfel says, "not impossible"

Deevian asks, "Yeh kint dig up yer nine dead buddies?"

Mikaylyn says, "Sleeping probably"

You listen carefully to Thurfel. ... Typical.

Thurfel says, "but difficult"

You say, "Ah..."

Sarnth says, "well....yer a fin one to talk...done nearly burned up the town"

Sinzarie says, "these two should be hung from da tree in town square"

Thurfel says, "I fear the halfwits heart is in the wrong place"

Sarnth glances at Thurfel.

Kippe asks, "What exactly is yer effort?"

Rills says, "it wouldn't take me long to seize the pin off the dead Arimantis"

Kadesha squints at Rills.

You say, "Perhaps he merely dislikes the idea of so much death, Lord Thurfel."

Earedsil says, "Halfling pinatas are now forbidden...for about 10 years now"

Earedsil nods to Sinzarie.

You ask, "Can that not be understood?"

Thurfel says, "Do not think for a moment that our assault on the tomb is over."

Deevian says, "Yeh dunt know Arimantis has the pin"

Thurfel says, "Far from over"

Mikaylyn says, "Nay more killing please"

Thurfel asks, "Arimantis has the pin?"

Thurfel asks, "is this true?"

Deevian says, "In fact, yeh jest wan' outta trouble"

Dreslar says, "what pin"

Rills exclaims, "yes sir!"

Sarnth says, "aye well.....bring help when ya come back"

Junis rolls his eyes.

Thurfel asks, "Rills?"

Sarnth nods to Thurfel.

Junis says, "Fool"

Arimantis asks, "What makes ya think I have it?"

Sarnth points west.

Analsha says in elven, "That halfling is too serious."

Arimantis peers quizzically at Rills.

Deevian exclaims, "Rills is only hopin' ta avoid moat duty, Thurfel!"

Sarnth says, "off with ya"

Thurfel asks, "Why do I find this out from peasants and not from you?"

Thurfel asks, "Where is this Arimantis?"

Rills exclaims, "they speak truthfully!"

You ask, "Perhaps because it is not so?"

Arianiss points at Arimantis.

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Arianiss says, "He is."

Kadesha moves to stand in front of Arimantis.

Rills says, "they must have a great love for you"

Sinzarie moves to stand in front of Arimantis.

Arimantis says, "I don know why you think I would have it"

Faerinn says, "Well that search didn't take long."

Thurfel asks, "Do you have this pin Arimantis?"

Junis falls to the ground laughing hysterically!

Rills says, "to be swift in informing you of this news"

Sarnth asks, "you are a brite one aren't you?"

Deevian says, "Rills is in fer some big-time moat cleanin' now"

Deevian snickers.

Sarnth glances at Thurfel.

Rills says, "they love nothing better than to tell you themselves"

Arimantis says, "That moat was lookin a lil messy"

Deevian says, "He'll prolly be stuck doin' all the chores"

Arimantis nods to Deevian.

Junis says, "Egads Rills, You've quite ruined my cloak making me roll in these ashes with laughter"

You say, "I don't think anyone has yer pin, Thurfel. I think was accidentally lost and none can find it."

Deevian says, "Pickin' the sparklies outta the stone palm trees too"

Deevian grins at Rills.

Thurfel says, "Rills, surely your better than the monkeys outside the gates."

Thurfel asks, "Tell me why the pin is not in my hands?"

Rills exclaims, "it only verifies the truth, Arimantis has the pin!"

Sarnth says, "I got the pin"

Mikaylyn asks, "What is this pin?"

Eyegore says, "So much fer remodeling...."

Kadesha asks, "or maybe Rills has it and is planning his own thing?"

Sinzarie asks, "because maybe Rills is the one who truly has it?"

You nod to Kadesha.

Sinzarie peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Arimantis asks, "What verifies that I have it?"

Junis says, "Thurfel I warn you, if you move on to burning populated buildings, you'll find your blood spilled in the streets"

You say, "Very well could be, Kadesha."

You raise an eyebrow in Rills's direction.

Junis says, "An thas a promise"

Shonison says, "um...that was populated, hense the charred remains"

Thurfel asks, "Rills, you told me Halfberry had the pin, this is truth aye?"

Rills exclaims, "he conspires with dwarves!"

Deevian asks, "Anyone have an immolation sword ah kin borrow?"

Deevian snickers.

Sarnth says, "shame thurfel......you should be more careful"

Arimantis asks, "You hidin the pin Rills?"

Sarnth sighs.

Arimantis peers quizzically at Rills.

Rills exclaims, "Halfberry was in league with the dwarves and this Arimantis!"

Faerinn says, "Yep there are bones in there."

Shonison nods to Faerinn.

Rills says, "they seek to unlock the secrets of your artifacts"

Kadesha asks, "could be why he never seems to find it eh?"

Shonison points at a pile of blackened canvas.

You say, "Arimantis isn't a dwarf."

You cough.

Roelon stares at Thurfel.

Arimantis chuckles.

Deevian says, "And rolton fly"

Deevian smiles at Rills.

Rills exclaims, "This consipracy of theft should have them all slain!"

Deevian chuckles.

Junis says, "Conspiracy my tucas"

Rills exclaims, "May I be the one to execute them all!"

Mikaylyn gazes up into the heavens.

Sinzarie asks, "how was supposed to be guarding this pin anyway?"

Junis says, "The halfwit dropped it and didnt bother to pick it up"

Khenan says, "I take it as we will never see that re open."

Sinzarie says, "who I mean"

You say, "See, Lord Thurfel, likes to give his own orders."

Sinzarie grumbles.

You cough.

You say, "Has pretensions..."

You nod to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "Iscikella, the balance shall soon tip quite favorably. Your precious balance will be all for naught"

Earedsil says, "Rills has just a lil too much sugar in his system"

Nithili giggles.

Arimantis says, "I think Kadesha is right, mayhaps you got yer own plan for the pin Rills....why don you just give it back an be done with this"

You stare at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "these distractions will hardly do much more than take my time."

You say, "So ye say, my lord."

Kadesha stares at Thurfel.

Deevian asks, "Thurfel, if he gits moat duty... kin we watch?"

Deevian beams!

Thurfel asks, "Arianiss, have ye any news for me?"

Rills asks, "See how he has started spreading lies?"

You ask, "But taking time is important, is it now?"

Arianiss bites his lip.

Thurfel says, "you can feed the moat"

Kadesha glances at Arianiss.

Arianiss stares at the talisman in his hand.

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Arimantis asks, "Are they lies?"

Arimantis peers quizzically at Rills.

Mikaylyn coughs.

Rills says, "He even has the shifty eyes of a weasal."

Arianiss says, "I don't know."

Arimantis chuckles.

Thurfel says, "I am missing an orb of great importance Arianiss"

Arimantis says, "I gots shifty eyes.."

Arimantis grins at Kadesha.

Arianiss nods.

Kadesha begins chuckling at Arimantis.

Deevian says, "And yeh got the belly uh a giant... which is only bad if yer a fourth as short as em"

Deevian grins at Rills.

Rills says, "I bet Arimantis knows where that is too."

Femereff says, "an orb that is best out of your hands"

You say, "If enough time is taken, then time is lost, and perhaps all is lost, Lord Thurfel."

Thurfel says, "I do not know how it was removed from my keep...."

Thurfel says, "only Halfwit and Rills have access"

Arianiss asks, "..and you suspect Halfberry?"

Femereff says, "for the saftey of the rest of us"

Kadesha whispers, "what bloody orb?"

Arimantis says, "Seems you are blamin a lot on me"

Arimantis nods to Thurfel.

Arianiss says, "Then the answer is simple."

You stare at Thurfel.

Arianiss says, "Kill Rills and Halfberry."

Arimantis says, "An if Halfberry be gone...it musta been Rills"

Arianiss glances at Rills.

Shonison grins.

Arimantis nods to Thurfel.

Faerinn smirks.

Rills says, "Hand over Halfberry and we may forget your indescretions Arimantis."

Deevian nods to Arimantis.

Kadesha asks, "mayhap Halfberry an Rills conspired together, tired of followin yer orders Thurfel?"

Thurfel asks, "Rills, can you dispute that thought?

Junis begins chuckling at Rills.

Deevian says, "Rills"

Thurfel says, "it has merit."

Deevian stares at Rills.

Mikaylyn rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Deevian asks, "You been sneakin' round?"

Kadesha whispers, "yah but what orb"

Arimantis peers quizzically at Rills.

You say, "Aye, Kadesha has a thought, Lord Thurfel."

Rills says, "Easily, I am here working hard to retrieve the items and Halfberry."

Tloran glances at Rills.

You say, "Fine cover."

Rills says, "My loyalty is never in question."

Kadesha smirks.

Arianiss stares at the talisman in his hand.

Junis snorts.

(Iscikella glances apprasisingly at Rills.)

Sinzarie says, "Rills you sure to seem pretty defensive about suspicion being cast on you"

Kippe blinks at Rills.

Mikaylyn says, "Unless you already have them safely tucked away"

Deevian grins evilly.

Arimantis says, "A lil hobbit like Halfberry, an you cant find him.....I don quite understand"

Junis asks, "Loyalty, how can a warrior sink themselves to be loyal to such an evil mage?"

Earedsil says, "Everyone's loyalty is in question, except only to themselves"

Arimantis squints at Rills.

You ask, "Did ye search his quarters in the keep, Lord Thurfel?"

Arianiss says, "Once a snake, always a snake.."

Arianiss squints.

Thurfel says, "True enough, your loyalty no, your ability perhaps. You brought me here, and all I have to show for it is the remains of a dwarven tent..."

You squint at Rills.

Thurfel says, "and perhaps the remains of a few dwarves."

Analsha asks in elven, "Why are they helping that halfling when he seems to just want to burn everything down?"

Thurfel cackles!

(Iscikella glances at the sigil suspiciously.)

A wisp of flame red mist coils downward.

Rills grows indistinct. Slowly it dawns on you that he isn't there anymore.

(Iscikella looks uncomfortable.)

Shonison says, "punishment"

Earedsil says, "Quite a leash"

Arimantis rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You nod.

You say, "I'd say."

Kippe says, "I'd rather walk...."
