the oversize monstrous looking person made of spare parts was approaching from down the corridor, apparently from a slising door you had not noticed.

Two very unnerving factors there...a door we had not noticed and a construct of body parts!

Gareth watch's the new arrival very cautiously.

"You are local here? Tell us about this place..."

Safwan grunts in response and attempts a greeting in makeshift Aralaise. "Hello, <grunt> friend. Safwan has had no visitors for a long while."

He thinks for a moment.

"Given several locals have already tried to kill us, and we found the body. of one of those who built this place, it probably should be mutual. You seem somewhat self-aware...are you undead or constructed?"

"Our quest is to find out about this tower, and evaluate the threat it represents, reducing it if possible. Some also would like to relieve the tower of all valuables, as payment for this work.

So what can you tell us in regards to the occupants of this tower, and the threat they represent? Why was it built?

"Spiders. I see. We have not seen any spiders or rats, but we have seen several constructs and creatures that were much more deadly than the usual versions of such creatures. How can we know you are not planning to get rid of us when the chance presents itself?"

If you choose to follow, Safwan may allow you to peruse the library. If you don't behave with hostility, Safwan may even act as a guide inside the tower for a time...

Gareth is open to having a guide. He is just not sure whether his offer of help is genuine, or whether he can be trusted. There is also concern about group dynamics...
