Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis reaches for the bottle to take a drink himself, then hands it back to the troll. "Well, if we aren't enemies, then we are friends.  And my friends call me Aegis.  How did you get here and locked up like this? ..... "

"I am called Wilfgar, and I was fettered by the men of the towns after they cast nets and harpoons upon me, and beat me with hot pokers. Many of them died, their leader,  I ate, but they had ne,and pounded their nails."


Anyone have surgery? That would be the ideal skill for this.

"Oh, I see. Since I do not ride horses, I don't see what they are upset about that for! As long as you stay away from eating people like me..."

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis sits patiently by his new friend and waits for the rest of the group to take action on the troll's leg.  In the meantime, he continues his discussion.  "Nice to meet you Wilfgar.  Where was this?  When was this?  I don't recall hearing about it, but I bet it was quite the event."

OOC  Aegis will hand the bottle back so the troll can have another drink.

The Vejovian takes out her kit and washes the troll's leg with vine before taking a scalpel to it. The work is messy, and the wound threatens to close with her hand inside. It wuickly becomes revealed that the chain ends in a cudd around the bone.

" I am going to have to saw through this to get the cuff off. Can someone keep this wounnd open si I don't get my arm stuck in him?"

The troll tritches slightly at the open wound, but does not flinch, and takes a big swig from Aegis' flask.

Aegis will nod to the troll, then hand over his large knife for the rest of the work.

The troll grimaces as Alice jams Aegis knife next to her saw, so as to keep the troll's natural regeneration from sealing the woound. Seconds later, interrupted only by fresh cutiing of the gealing tissue. And she cuts through the bone, releasing the metal cuff.

Dne reluctantly climbs back down to earth, but still keeps his distance.  Making friends with a troll champion seems pretty bird-brained to him, but he keeps his opinion to himself for once.

Dilandua begins to head over to the troll, "You were a slave and yet you were loyal to their commands.  Was that out of a sense of fear or honour?  Or something else?"

Alice withdraws the knives and the saw.
"Done with the surgery, now for the healing, in Vejovis' Holy Name."

She lays her hands on top of the wound, and the flesh flows smoothly together without even a scar.

The troll flexes his leg, and rubs it, releasing Aegis' wrist. As he leans, the medallion henging out of his throat swings on the short length of chain that protrudes from his flesh

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis rubs his wrist some.  The troll's grasp was firm, but during the most painful moments it was perhaps a little too firm.  He wasn't injured, but it would be sore for a while.  Still, they had come through this better than he expected.  "Keep the rest of the bottle, friend.  We have drunk together, so we are no longer enemies.  I would give you something for your travels now.  In fact, you should consider joining us, if you have interest in making some coin.  We could get you started, where you have nothing now."

Re: Against the Mageguild
17:06, Today: Dne Utrotare rolled 6 using 3d6.  Elementalism roll.

Ooc: Technically this is not a thaumatology roll, as Dne is an elementalist, not a mage.

Dne recognizes that the medallion is likely to have a traceable magic mark on it.

"Good hunting...as long you do not hunt us! We should be on our way?"

Reanna does not have any idea about the medallion, nor does she ask. We have passage, which is what we wanted...

OOC  Edited to muck up the language, as that seems to be his MO.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dne rolls his eyes, tempted to explain that troll champions donít really need weapons, and were capable of finding a large club (or whatever) in the woods.  But he says nothing, as he has no desire to prolong this situation.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dilandua moves back to the horse, "I can spare one day's food to ease your hunt.  Though, it might not sate someone of your size for a full day.  If you want for work, the Adventurer's Guild is always accepting," the warrior points down the road, "in Northport about two days hence, they have some trolls in their ranks.  Mostly working the fighting pits I think.  But if you hunger for the work of a hunter... ask around for the Twilight House.  Tell them Dilandua vouches for you.  I can't say whether there is place in the House for you now, but work for hunters always comes up."

Dilandua offers him three tightly packed iron rations.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis adds a couple rations of his own, and selects one of his throwing axes from his belt, offering it to the troll.
