Delith: the gang, all here?

As you watch Shorty take a few steps towards Orkex and start to wonder if half-ogre brains taste any good to an ilithid, you hear some noise behind you like rock heavily hitting more rock.  You turn around and see Dualis and a stone golem.

Dualis:"Hello all, welcome to my home.  Please be careful I just had the floor washed."  he smiles.  "How is it going?  Have you gotten what you need yet to go get the Orb?"  he pauses and pulls out a battle axe.  "Oh, Warwick, I believe this is yours and yes it was your ancestors axe Troll Carver that was reforged to be Giant Cleaver in honor of what was done in the dragon wars.  There is a new book in the library if you want to read about the axe."  he then motions to the stone golem.  "This here is Rocky, he can help if you need some heavy lifting.  Now is there anything else you need to get ready?"  he sees the Chest.  "Ah, I see you have met chest.  Nice little thing, can be a bit temperamental though."

Shorty shakes his head and says.  "Not posed toos be Talking in head.  Only Shorty do."  Shorty then sighs and looks longingly at the wiggly things and imagines how much fun it would be to tie them in different knots.  He then turns and say "Hullo Dullis.  What kinds trouble you makin dis time?"

Dualis:"Ha ha, it seems you have found a sense of humor Shorty.  Well I see you met the gang.  Orkex here is trying to get Joe's mind right so he can help you all out on this little jaunt.
   Aztar, I'm surprised you haven't gone to your lab."

Warwick bows to Dualis and then takes the axe.  "Thank ye.  That does explain some of the inconsistencies.  When we go back to the library, I will read about it."

Morteft bows to Dualis. "Well met, Dualis. I hope all is well with you. We are nearly prepared, I think."

Dualis"Warwick, Morteft, I trust you are finding your visit satisfactory.  Now, what do you have to do before we go over some final prep?  I'll need to 'speak' with Orkex about Joe."  he pauses  "If he is fit, would you like him along with you?  I wouldn't want you to think I'm pushing him off on you."

"I'm thinking we'll need all the help we can get.  Ye and yer people have been generous beyond belief, but the task is still going to very difficult."

Morteft says, "I think we are ready. Can Warwick borrow the book to read as time allows? It would be nice to get going."

Dualis considers the question. "I suppose that would be a problem.  There would be no automatic updates however.  I suspect once you get there you won't have too much time for that; but you never know."

Dualis:"It may or may not be difficult your encounters prior to the vault may be quick.  The vault is the tough part, and unfortunately very little is known about the guardian.  Joe should be able to help, more with the golems I suspect.  The Chest should also provide a very good storage center and perhaps more.  It will be good for it to 'stretch its legs' to coin a phrase."

Morteft says, "The chest will prove extremely useful just for the carrying capacity alone. That should help ease our minds and give us a lot of resources. I would still like to pick up some more healing ointments and what not just as a backup."

"Glad to help." says Dualis "By the way, I also believe my special amulets will work inside the vault.  I won't be able to come to your aid.  But I could be called on for information or perhaps research something you find."

Morteft nods. "That is very good to know. Can we transmit images of what we see with them? If so, that will help even more so."

Aztar shrugged, "Just trying to formulate a plan.  The idea of the rust monster potion for the golems isn't going to work if they're all Mithril and Adamantine, so still trying to figure out the best use of the time dilation to make something useful."

"Trying to figure out if there is a device that will help us override the teleport/dimensional locks so we can use our stuff.  Or, at worst, a permanent version of dimensional lock so that their traps can't teleport us away from each other."

"Really hoping some divination magics will help us choose the right path through the maze so that we only have to fight through the minimal number of guardians to get to the vault."

In reply to Aztar (msg # 17):

Dualis ponders Aztars dilemmas for the moment.  "I suppose we could come up with a detection device that will warn you before you enter a teleportation zone."
