OOC - Ya know, Ditto from Kell. He's too far away to change anything.  Unless the time warp happens to restore Ha'Kell's arm, in which case he'll impale the Vong in the face and attempt to help the human and prevent contact.

I didn't get any inclinatin there were humans/slaves/captives in the room.  Flog the dwarves more!

        GM: I've halted the update for now.  I thought I had a plan
            with Will's teleport but in thinking it over he wouldn't
            have known about the slaughter.  So doing a 1 phase teleport
            isn't realistic.  Arawn has a plan as well.  But there
            is some issues I outlined in his email.  Arawn will have to
            consider the option to cast a spell to save the human or
            prevent the Orb giving a warning.  If the human is saved
            then the Orb could notify all the Vong and stealth is ver.
            If the Orb is destroyed which he could do by hand then
            the human MAY die but he could save possibly hundreds more
            humans who may be captive elsewhere.  By the time the party
            leaves this cave hundreds could be slaughtered.  So is
            one human worth hundreds?  If Z'leya's telepathy was still
            active I could say she warned Will about the humans during
            the fight and he turned and teleported.  But the spell is
            gone so it would take a good phase just to discover it and
            might be too late by then.  So I'll hold things off here
            so folks can re-iterate or replan strategy.  I can still
            do Arawn's emailed plans and it could still work.  The spell
            in mind could affect the human and shaper at once. But
            if the spell fails or the effects fail.

            So think about new options. If not I'll try to work on
            Arawn's plan and invoke them next update on Monday.

            I would say go back 2 phases due to the mistake by the
            Dwarves.  But sadly the detail already done in terms of
            experience and other data would be difficult to back
            track.  Its not impossible it would be highly difficult.
            I'd have to reverse engineer some things.

OOC:  I thought that Will was probably to far away and to involved to be of much help still hes open to suggestions.  It seems to me that rescuing the human and stopping the shaper form using the orb are both priorities.  We have already let one Vong escape and the clock is ticking.  The human could give us the edge in information that may help us get to the next phase of the operation ahead of the curve and still surprise them.  Of course if the shaper alerts the entire complex then all bets are off.  If the vong could at least be delayed and Will be alerted maybe he could still be of help.
