The contruct stands with its tray, and makes an attempt to smile, revealing a a pair of ivory plates with abstract scrimshaw graviture instead of teeth.

Haveron pauses when he sees the ivory 'teeth' in the animation.  Looking behind him, he asks "Have any of you seen anything like that before?  Look at the intricacy of his teeth.  Amelia?"

Amelia looks at the creature's mouth more closely, and even takes a couple steps forward (followed closely by Omar).  After a moment, she responds by saying "I'm almost sure that I saw something or heard about something just like this somewhere.  Give me a minute, I can't quite place it yet.  It wasn't anything political that I can remember, it was something else. "

As she thinks hard about the image, and tries to recall the reference, she comments absently "With the proper fabric and stitching, the ivory would make a fantastic set of buttons on a blouse."

Shroud had finished his cup the moment he took it. Thinking to himself how much the cup is worth while examining it.

The cup by itself may not be worth a great deal.
Shroud feels refreshed!

The struggle to reach the tower had left Gorgath exhausted and he quickly drank down his offered drink.  Seeing Gareth neglect his own drink, Gorgath mumbled, "You gonna drink?" While pointing at the human's glass.

"Nah, you have it. It messes with Fire magic."

He looks also at the ivory teeth to see if the have any magical meaning.

"It occurs to me that the water would be good kept if flasks if he has any extra. Just in case fire gets out of control...he seems to be trying to make his creations look good."

Haveron subtly shakes his head, but does not say anything.  He was fond of Amelia, even protective of her.  He even considered the possibility of them being an item down the road some years, when he was ready to settle down.  Of course, there was much to do before then, so it wasn't a thought he could entertain for some years.  He still had to build up a company and reclaim his family lands.  Still, when he had a place to call home, Amelia's eye for quality would be very welcome.  She knew a lot about politics and heraldry, and the things associated with bureaucracy.  Unfortunately, that kind of knowledge was not very useful in the tower of a potentially evil mage.

Ayiee a gazebo thing.

The use of decorated ivory instead of actual teeth was just a quirky aesthetic choice by the enchanter... perhaps a sign that there may be oddments of value scattered about.

"So who wants to keep exploring? We are stealing stuff right? As nice as the water is, probably don't want to just sit around forever."

Berry mostly wants to see what is in the rest of the tower.

"Naturally. But since the owner is probably not a fan of our idea, we should check out what else is going on. Particularly what else could be bad for our health..."

"Hope it not lich. I don't like lich. Lich problem."

Gorgath frowns as he speaks then drinks down Gareth's water and his frown partially fades.

Haveron considers the situation carefully.  There were different angles to consider, but after some careful consideration he offers "We should check the quarters where the servant came from.  While we did come here to seek riches, we also did not anticipate anyone being home.  If the master does happen to be home, I'd rather know how many of his servants he has working.  Maybe he has a functional kitchen, which would tell us if anyone eats here."

After a few seconds of pause, Haveron asks "Gorgoth, shall we?", before readying his sword, and proceeding towards the door where the servant came from.

The Adept did not step forward and did not take a glass, he is still standing by the door with his sword up and ready as he watches things and observes the room.

"Why don't you finish the rest, Gorgath? Or your friend may. Say, I wonder where the water came from? Perhaps you can finish it, and then ask for some more. Then we can follow him to see where it came from. Essential water can be valuable...a source more so."
