If any of them make hostile
moves, Kiet will throw EL2 Abandons on
them. Ring fire if an emergency, then tulwar.
From Pyan: [Re: Actions]
Nods silently and follows behind
him, looking ahead to see where
From Raddok: [Re: Actions]
Raddok, prepared to stay near
Dorhak as ordered, & preparing in ...
(His personal preference, & own
personal immediate action, is to have the party
(the obvious members), gather behind Dorhak, so
the dwarf is clearly visible to the outside
dwarves, but have party members turned partially
toward the cave residents, to protect themselves
& show less possible risk to the dwarves outside.
But also be prepared for a 2-sided fight, if
necessary. What these dwarves want, & what the
cave residents have supposedly done, none of the adventurers' party know yet.)
[My new Win10 is working great,
but having Office download problems (outdated &
need an alternative to save my stories, etc) so
still directly responding by email. Have
excellent IT friend & relative both available to
help, though - by email & Discord chat lol]
From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
Z'leyra, holding her staff casts
Clairvoyance on herself at max EL.
From Dorhak: [Re: Actions[
The Captain reaches out to
Raddok and says "Translate for the others."
From Dorhak: [Re: Actions]
Dorhak realizes that the people

Fremea hears strange sounds of
yelling outside, it seems familiar,
From Arawn: [Re: Actions]
Arawn will quietly translate the
conversation to the party if Raddok/Kiet are
busy/too far away as he speaks both Dwarf Elder and Lemasan.
Arawn watched as Raddok joined
Dorhak near the entrance and Kiet
If a fight seems like it's about
to happen he'll cast Battle Mind at max EL (boost
with supernatural tongue) and include anyone who
doesn't explicitly say they wish to be left out
of the spell. He'll start with those closest but
will not include Z'leyra as he should recognize
her Clairvoyance spell and doesn't want to risk
the two spells interacting poorly.
GM: Ack. I'll try to remember spell. :)
From Raddok: [Re: Actions]
As Dorhak's order, Raddok
immediately starts a translation of what he heard
to his companions, from the unknown party outside
the cave. He knows he will be heard, but - what
the hey ? - everyone who could be awakened was
probably awake by now. He's just relieved he can
pass this conversation along. He remains alert for action.

[Time: ?:?? am Unknown]
Kiet hears his language spoken and
makes a quick decision. He reaches over to
Pyandalgor and taps him on the shoulder. "Come
with me!" He says quietly. He moves toward the
source of the Lemasan language he heard.
When he gets close enough to start
talking to them, he calls out (a loud whisper in
Lemasan) "Quiet, you fools! They'll hear you! Quiet!"
Pyan nods silently and follows behind
Kiet, looking ahead to see where Kiet is leading
him still unsure of what he has planned.
Raddok, prepared to stay near Dorhak
as ordered, & preparing in his mind which of the
sleepers might be the best target, is shocked by
the sudden call from outside - Dwarves!? Here?!
This is a conundrum. Do they now have one enemy or two?
Hopefully, the human party are
thieves or trespassers & the dwarves have a
legitimate agenda, but in any case, the party was
not connected with either those in front of or behind them, outside.
Preparing his mace & shield, since
the horses seem to be quiet enough, Raddok looks
to Dorhak for a clue on what to do.
The Captain reaches out to Raddok and
says, "Translate for the others."
Dorhak realizes that the people in
the cave, whether or not they are the people we
were following, probably are plenty awake and aware now. Just great. Is
nothing simple anymore? He quickly chides
himself, however, on not leaving watch at the mouth of the cave. Stupid.
He walks out toward the cave
entrance, purposely letting them see him, but
keeping his shield ready and mace in hand. He
yells out, in Dwarf Elder "Cease
your silly bellyaching! We were just trying to
find someplace dry. Besides, by Goibnu's mug how
the hell are we supposed to know its you land? I thought
it was Kotothi land, by the gods, with the
evidence we saw. You allow snake headed gorillas on your land? Are ye daft?"
Dorhak finally gets a good look at
the person he thinks used the dwarf's own
language. "My name is Captain Dorhak. And just who might you be?" A short
pause (pun intended) then he says "and what the
hells are you? By Dvallin's plaited hair! Your
face is naked! Have you no sense of decency or modesty?"
Fremea hears strange sounds of
yelling outside, it seems familiar, yet does not
place it. She thinks that it would be best if she
makes sure the others will not wake up and
continues on her way to put another one to sleep.
She will use her wings slightly to
move with her levitation to the next one, quickly paralyzing the next one.
Arawn watched as Raddok joined Dorhak
near the entrance and Kiet took Pyan in the
opposite direction. Pressing up against the wall
or moved to hide amidst the horses, whichever
afforded the most cover and as his training
dictated, he considered the possibility of
battle. Hoping that diplomacy or stealth would
prevent this he still decided it would be best to prepare for the worst.
"I'll join us in a Battle Mind if a
fight seems inevitable," he whispered to those still present.
Kiet and Pyan round the corner to see a dark set of forms
One seems motionless as the rest start to
stir. Pyan feels a breeze past him and wonders if that is Fremea?
Fremea levitating pulled her bag to
her chest and grabbed the flask of paralytic
poison. With one hand holding flash and other
her dagger she dips the dagger in flask. Then
levitates over to the stirring forms.
One sits up on his elbows and looks around, what is going on?
Then suddenly before Fremea gets to
him the man is knocked to the ground
unmoving. Fremea wonders if Unali is here but
the darkness is deep and no time to investigate.
Another does the same now sitting up
on his butt looks around and hears the outside
folks. They caught us! He moves to wake
another but Fremea swipes her dagger against his
arm deep enough to cause a gash and the man falls back unable to move.
Outside the spokesperson waves his
torch, it is late do we have to do this
? Fine. We'll do the routine! I am Gnorf
Knarlfinger and you are in the territory of
Besam! You know this already and are
trespassers. You know the routine surrender,
leave your weapons. We'll take you into
custody. Go to our nearby village. Then in
morning start the usual deportation process! To
make things simple for you humans we'll kick your
butts out of our lands. Surrender now and it'll
be peaceful as usual. Deny us and we'll take you
by force that means lethal force which is
granted to us! Listen you are surrounded by
overwhelming forces and in a cave we know only
has one exit. It is late and I have rum getting warm! Let's get this done!
Dorhak stares at the unbearded
man-dwarf? Did he say Besam? As in Besamar long
cousins of the dwarves? He has never seen one.
From outside a figure speaks to the
leader in a language not known but Dorhak turns
to check and no one knows it could it be the Besam native language?
The leader steps forward 5 paces and
squints at the entrance. Captain you are a
dwarf? You are helping these Harn ...pond scum?
Then a figure to Dorhak's left and
Gnorf's right approaches. Another dwarf with no
beard. He whispers to Gnorf waving to where the
party came from. Gnorf does hand signals to the hidden dwarves.
This has become serious! We found a
dead human nearby! Now we will need to
investigate this and my rum will get too warm
tonight! Surrender now and we'll not smoke you out.
Arawn hears this and knows these
people from his studies. Not everything but in a
generic sense. Is this the Eastern Lands? That
would mean they have indeed ended up thousands of
miles away. That would explain the
darkness. But then Arawn sees it. The book! By
the first guard paralyzed. Just behind the
lantern. Could they have tried to read it? It
is just collecting dust now. He bends down and
dusts it off. It seems in good shape.
By now all the Lemasans are paralyzed
or knocked out. Kiet, Pyan and Fremea return to
main cave. Course that means they can't alibi their story.
Everyone looks at Dorhak for orders now.
Dorhak hears rustling outside but it is hard to tell numbers.
GM: Actions? Comments?
GM: A good spot to end for now. Was
going to do larger update but stuff got in
way. Tuesday is last tue/thur of doc visits so
after 6 months will have a bit more free
time. (doc visits for mom) So I can try to do
update Wednesday and maybe Saturday if we push
it. Then Xmas is week after. Then maybe
28t? So can try 2-3 more updates before end of
year. Then after that it'll be 5 day work weeks
:< for 8 months so that'll give a chance for 2
updates a week again. We can hope.
:) People.txt updated to note Gnorf's name.
Well that was the plan
above. This is a PS. I had update DONE saturday
then staff quit on me early So could not
distrubite. Can't fire them. Can't beat
them. What can you do! Sorry for delay. So new
schedule? I can try to do a update
