"It's slippery.  We lost some, maybe pits under the water.  Didn't realize it until after we were in the warrens and stopped for a head count."

Then she answers to the trolls, "Ole ettevaatlik oma jalgade suhtes. Olge ettevaatlik vee all olevate süvendite ja olendite suhtes."

Jendrich nods, making sure to check his steps before putting down his full weight.

The merchant fumbles about in his cart, before passing a number of rods to pne of the orcs, who screws them together. assembling a ten foot pole.
" Thank you for that information!"

Slowly, with the orc sweeping the flooring with the pole. You advance.

"Good Idea. Do we have rope? We should partner up, and each partner wear a loop around his waist, for the others to pull him out, more readily."

Re: Trading with Trolls 2
"As much as a rope would help to pull someone out, it won't help if something else is pulling down." Jendrich search trough the supplies for a roll of string. "What we need is a warning, so we know someone is in trouble, and can mount a rescue before it's too late. For that, we just need a thin string between every pair. The string will be strong enough that we'll feel the tug if someone falls, but not so strong that we can't break it for a fight."

Re: Trading with Trolls 2
Ülo indicates for the trolls to follow their scouts footsteps or stay in the draft of the wagon.

"No need for roping, just stay on the scouted path or trail the wagon.  But if you feel the need, I recommend roping to the wagon, if it is an underwater beast, it's not likely to be strong enough to drag that away... and if it does, well..."

Ülo moves over next to Rushagorn, to translate if necessary, and reaches up and touches it at a high point in the front.  She mutters something and a moonlight emanates from the spot she touched.

"In case every single torch bearer falls down at once for some reason..."




OOC:  13:19, Today: Ulo rolled 12 using 3d6.  Casting Continual Light (Moonlight) 16 on wagon.  Cost 1 FP, does not count as a spell on.

Current Footprint: 0
Spells On:  Hide (no Footprint), No Smell (No Footprint)

In reply to Ulo (msg # 299):

The orc with the pole prods the puddle ahead in a broad sweep before advsncing. From what you can see, the water stretches accross 4 yards, and continues for at least teenty yards. As the orc advances. You can see it is deeper than it looks for he is quickly in up to his knees.

Jendrich sticks close to the wagon, keeping watch over the rear guards as they cross. If anyone is likely to vanish without notice, it's the one in the rear.

In reply to Jendrich (msg # 301):

The merchant pauses to reorganize the parcels on the wagon, so as to maintain dryness as much as possible.

The orc ahead raises an arm as the end of the pole dips.

Jendrich frowns, and with a final glance behind, moves closer to the front, sword at the ready.

The pole swings back , and the orc jumps to the side and releases it. It drops straight down into the water!

Ülo turns and begins climbing out of the water up onto the cart, even if that means holding onto the side.

"Get back!" Jendrich moves to stand in front of the cart, watching for movement in the water, ready to strike if anything tries to grab him.
