INTRO INTERLUDE: Building Anxiety
Gwindel will take Knud aside and explain his doubts about this new group:

"Signs of badness," he said, his vocabularly not allowing him to find a better word.  "Thes'men are at th'breaking point, and I'll bet it's tha'black eyed bastard what's brought em to't.  Remember th'tension at th'keep when w'left?  I dinnae think is a good idea to bring Torygan back there.  And I dinnae trust these men, except maybe th'knight.  They've all been around Torygan for t'long."

Re: PART??: private discussion

Knud listened to the dwarf carefully and it took him a while to respond: "I agree with what you are saying - mercanaries do look on edge, although their journey was no doubt a long and arduous one. As much as I'm concerned with what effect Torygan's presence might have on the soldiers in the keep I think there's little we can do about that."
The ranger sighed. "The keep is just beyond the horizon. I think mercenaries will be most happy to entrust their prisoner to our care; with a safe place to rest and isolated from the sorcerer they will hopefully compose themselves. And first thing in the morning we could be on our way again; once we cross the mountains and get to the Border Rangers' station I'm sure there'll be enough resources to ensure sound and swift journey to Toran."

Knud was looking west as if he was trying to lessen the distance by his will. He was clearly aware of the many things that could go wrong. With another sigh he said: "I'll be on guard for any signs of trouble."

"Keep an eye on Skyl.  He hasn't shown an'further signs o'treachery, but maybe th'will change when Torygan is'n our 'sesson.

Re: PART??: private discussion

Knud disliked thinking of the corporal as a traitor...but he saw, or at least he reasoned himself into believing, the logic behind Gwindel's words. The previous attack remained still unexplained and the presence of Torygan was surely going to make things only worse.

The ranger nodded.

Gwindel clapped Knud on the back.  "We'll get through this, lad and we'll bring th'bastard to justice.  But let's st'close, aye?"

Re: PART??: private discussion

Though his smile was rather forced, Knud genuinely felt reassured. "Aye," the ranger said, "I'm glad you happened to be here when....in these times."

Gwindel nodded solemly.  "Th'feeling is mutual, lad.  Now let's cheer up and get th'party moving."

Re: PART??: private discussion

OOC: Nice exchange, btw!

[Private to Knud Anleifr: You seem to have a good handle on the plot. Can't wait to see some pressure put on your character later given all this! Seems like he'll have some tough decisions down the line...]

[Private to Gwindel Sverger: Very sneaky :)]

Re: PART??: private discussion
Thanks, it's fun to be plotting behind the scenes.
Now back to save Torygan! Well, 'save' is a relative term... ;)


[Private to GM: Yeah - I'm worried what Gwindel & GM will want to drag Knud into. Hehe.]

Re: PART??: private discussion
I just worry about what Skyl or Valeena might be plotting behind our backs.  Between the two of us (three of us), I don't trust either of them.  Skyl has that apple pie face and something was off about Valeena's reaction to getting shot....

.... but Gwindel himself didn't pick up on that.


[Private to edgtheowson: Yeah, it had been a couple days since I got nasty with my tactics.]

Re: PART??: private discussion

OOC: Well teehee, I know who is trustworthy and not. Well, within reason. Players as funny creatures, and have the capacity to pleasantly surprise a GM daily :D

[Private to Knud Anleifr: Awww, what did I ever do? I'm just the humble storyteller, trust me Zipp is quite capable of dragging the story whichever way you guys will let him. :p]

[Private to Gwindel Sverger: It will be interesting to see how this all plays out for you!]
