There we go!  IT is done.  Small majority wants plan 2 and leader has 
decided.  So we move on!
At this point I need to know who gets or gives mind shield spells.If 
here is other spellsor items you wantto use let me know.  I think ZL 
and Arawn can do both MS spells but youtwomaywanttochat quickly on 
whohas better ELs.  Get back to me and we'll move on Monday.  I may 
not start the battle Monday but at least get right before it.

KEll let me know summoning EL I think you can do 3 more again.

That should cover it.  Back to killing more demons in d3 :)

Bah.  Now I'll have to work on updates not just type up something 
quick in 5 min :)

>>Arawn knows that going into a hot zone like the Brain

>>"Brain? What is that?" The girl looks back and forth from
>>Farseeker to Z'leyra in confusion.
>>"See? You think the Vong will be open to prisoners to let

>>order the group in one way. But if plans change and
>>the group goes to explore other caves I can immediately
>>move the group along. Since on this side would go up
