"It is inside the pedestal the statue of Chegarra stands upon."
"The catch to open it is hidden in the scroll work covering the outside."

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
Not wanting to interrupt Huruyan's conversation, Kumahl waits until the discussion breaks for a few minutes then leans over to Huruyan, "Any chance that device was active and was what was keeping the water out in the first place?"

With a smirk Junior Priest Panjang says to Kumahl, "From your look, I'd guess you don't know the devices of the ancients like I do."

Looking sharply at Panjang, "Get beyond your own self interests. Share your knowledge now or remain silent."

"Huruyan, let me explain. I believe the device provided a protective field around the shrine. Part of what may have been kept out was the flood waters."

"It is an eye that causes a crowd to follow the user loyally and obey his commands for a time."
"It can be dangerous in the wrong hands."

"You could easily have found that out from your Thumis temple here in the city."

"Since I have studied many of the devices of the ancients, I am familiar with all the common ones and many that are less common," he added proudly.

"Hunter Junior Priest Khivasha, since you are not a diver, will you be using the Helm of Walking Among Fish?"

"We came to your clan when we got word of the device."

"Are you the one that uses it?"

"Panjang," Kumahl says to get the man's attention, "I am a man of action and have not had the time to pour over ancient tombs and musty writings. As I said before, my first duty is to the clan and not my own self interests, of which I have none."


"Brother Khivasha, what details have you heard about the Helm of Walking Among Fishes? I would like to make sure we are talking about the same Helm."

"I only know that it is a wondrous devise that allows members of your clan to stay under water almost indefinitely."

"It sounded like just the right thing to use to investigate the cause of our situation."

"Actually Brother Huruyan, I believe that information states that we have this Helm amongst the clan. However, we did not use this on our last commission, Brother Khivasha, so actual familiarity with the device is limited."

"If Hunter Huruyan can find the source of the flooding and deal with any intruders by himself, then that is fine with us."
"We just need the shrine to be restored as soon as possible."

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
"I would be happy to use the Helm and accompany you Hunter Huruyan, if I only had skill as a diver."
"Unfortunately, I have spent most of my time pouring over ancient tombs and musty writings as Craftsman Kumahl calls it."

"I can share the knowledge of the ancients that I have, as needed for the success of this commission, if I am with you."

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
While the discussion continues, much to the apparent distaste of His Holiness Temple Priest Rodlan'ga, wine begins to flow into the cups of the clan members.

His Holiness accepts a cup and sips at it politely.

The dancers become more frenzied and explicit in their movements to music being played.

It is getting hard to communicate without huddling close together.

Already inebriated clan members are rubbing themselves against you trying to get you to dance, or other things, with them.

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
"So Craftsman Kumahl, do you have a list of the equipment you will need or who will be required to accompany you?"

"From what I gather, space is limited so only essentials should be included."

"You can always send a messenger back for forgotten things but that will cause unavoidable delays."
"I don't expect that Hunter Huruyan can stay underwater as long as that would take."

"I think I know what I need to take," and with that Huruyan goes of into the crowd and starts to dance.

"Brother Grujung, do we have access to the Helm mentioned? If so, I believe that is what we would need. Otherwise we are taking rope, our tools, and our weapons. Our safety is being granted by our employer."

Kumahl will wait for Grujung's answer before moving off the boats completely towards the docks and the shore. It appears that something has got Kumahl concerned and distracted, to where he cannot or will not join in the festivities.

"It is one of our clan's most valuable pieces of equipment for earning the clan glory ... and income."
"If you have the skill to use it, then it is at your disposal."

"It would be good to be able to put it to use more often."

"While we all enjoy these parties, they are indebting and some of the owed favors are hard to pay back."

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
Kumahl stops in mid stride after hearing Clan Accountant Grujung's comment. Returning to a spot near the Accountant, "Brother, with the Helm, we can certainly complete this mission. Huruyan and I will be the only ones needed on this mission, unless you foresee something I might be missing?"

While Kumahl waits on Grujung's response, he continues his sketches on the weighted vest. His figures show attachable ballast bags that are layered down the front and back in two columns. These bag can be removed individually, or in solid rows if necessary.

Next, Kumahl works on a ballast bag sketches that allow the bag to empty its contents as opposed to be being attached and then re-attached. The idea being that there would be two rows, one removable over top the second, which can have the weights changed when necessary. Kumahl stops in his sketching and posses another to Grujung, "Do we have any Chlen-hide available? Maybe a couple of large front piece sections or one large solid back section?"

Re: A2 S1: Faithful Service
"Chlen-hide in large sections?"
"They can be gotten if needed but, that is not something we have just laying around."

"Is this something you will need for your commission?" Grujung asks distractedly as he drifts slowly in the direction of where the wine is being served.

In response to Clan Accountant Grujung, "Not entirely necessary. Just looking at providing some extra protection for Brother Huruyan. I can attend to that matter after this next commission. Will you be able to secure some for me after this commission is complete? "

"Anything that is needed for clan business can be requisitioned."
"If it is truly needed, we will figure out a way to compensate the supplier."

"If you just want it for personal use, you will have to acquire it on your own."
Grujung gives a Kumahl a piercing look.
