Yeah he knows that now and he was a bit caught up in the breaking of the eggs. That is why he did not say anything more about it once they were outside and in the meeting.

Out of Character: . Cratol is acting like he is due to his thinking that Lia poisoned Mari against him in favor for her son who showed a interest in her instead of letting her have her own choice. Plus the fact that Faevalor is so pushy he would not leave her alone long enough to see if any others were taken by her. Some of this he will tell Poljen privately.

Okay, most people have said their piece. Geoffroy, Fay, your response?

Does Nyzahr have anything to add? She must be aware that the group is threatening to break up, and has already expressed that such is undesirable to her.

Yes, I think it's time Nyzahr gets out of her unnerving and quaint reserve for once. See post in Main Thread !

Ash, to save me some invaluable time, can you link or repeat the conversation with Asbara?

Kyrroeth, just to make sure, though I think you already know, Poljen likes and admires Lia. He listens to her about many things, even when he disagrees with her about tactics. If Lia had not dropped at the end of the battle, Poljen would have grinned at her and Velon and said, "There you are. What took you?" in a way obviously poking fun at himself being unable to do his thing, and having them save him. He also would have made another of his overdone flirtatious remarks about why she revived him, obviously being not just mad at him, but mad ABOUT him, with his goofy grin and waggling eyebrows. Though I have also been waiting for the right moment for him to make some comments that might accidentally irk her about her weakness for a handsome face.

Note, anyone with anything resembling training on politics or the affairs of the world in general can make a History check to realize something of importance about this exchange.

Transcript of the conversation:

The mirror before Nyzahr flickers to life, showing grey clouds swirling instead of the usual reflection.

After about a minute, the image resolves into that of a short and corpulent human male in ornate crimson silk robes with a high black neck.

His head is bald, and even the eyebrow hairs plucked out, probably to showcase the intricate tattoos on his forehead and scalp.

He regards 'Cyanwrath' for a few moments before saying, "Well? What is it? My payment to you is being gathered as agreed upon, is there a problem with the shipment?"

Nyzahr recognizes the somewhat nasally voice as that of the man she had overheard arguing with Cyanwrath before.

Nyzahr suppresses an interior giggle. This is revealing to be highly entertaining.This sphere of existence has a lot of things - and beings - to toy with indeed…

From what Fay read to them in the dragonborn commander's journal, she assumes the small fat creature in the ridiculous robes is the slave merchant, the one Cyanwrath called Azbara.

But she needs to be sure…

Calling on her thaumaturgic powers, she says one single thing with the gravelly voice of the dragonborn she impersonates:

"... My Lord, Wyrmspeaker Galvan… "

The man in the mirror says, "Who? Don't toy with me now, we had a deal."

Nyzahr proceeds with her theatrics under the guise of Cyanwrath:

"... Listen, you insolent fool ! I am a war commander and a warrior, I do not 'play', I execute orders and remove threats for my Lord and Master, Wyrmspeaker Galvan. Now pay attention: The Great Wyrmspeaker has taken notice of your work in our service and not only is the human merchandise on its way, but Galvan has made you the supreme honor of summoning you to appear in his presence: he wishes you to participate in our holy mission in a, shall we say, more direct manner.
Needless to say, the boon for such a deed would magnify your gains a-hundred-fold… and refusal to do so would greatly anger the Great Wyrmspeaker. Greatly, indeed."

At this, Cyanwrath-Nyzahr gives the little fat man a cold, long and meaningful reptilian look.

Azbara starts laughing, "You lot certainly have grown bold as of late. If I thought you had any hope of success in your 'holy mission', I'd have killed you myself. And I am certainly not about to tie my fate to yours."

Nyzahr is somewhat taken aback by Azbara's brazen threat and haughty attitude: she starts to realize she has perhaps underestimated the little fat slaver's powers. In any case, she intends to persevere in her bluffing until he either reveals his plans, exposes himself directly (As unlikely as that may be), or at least let enough information slip so that they can discover where the slave caravan is bound to…

She's now forced to improvise:

" You would do well not to underestimate the ancient powers of Galvan and our 7-Headed Mistress, Slaver ! Be warned that she will know who favoured her rise and who mocked her faithful devotees when she arrives from the depths… an event which is now both unstoppable and imminent. But enough babbling: will you accept The Wyrmspeaker's invitation ? Or do you wish to compromise our dealings ? You know we have always complied with our part of the bargain, even if our goals differ somewhat… And there is also the matter of the caravan. We must speak of this further."

"Seven headed?"

Azbara narrows his eyes at you suspiciously, and then laughs again, "You're not him are you? I presume this means his end came even earlier than expected?"

"No matter, I have yet to pay for the current shipment, so fortunately for you, this is but a minor inconvenience. Whoever you are, I presume that the slaves are still there, would you be interested in making a new deal for them? I can pay handsomely."

Nyzahr smiles to herself: the game had just gotten more interesting, all of a sudden.

All the lone hours she spent playing dragonchess against herself are finally about to pay off, she thinks as she opens Cyanwrath's jaw into a cruel smile:

" Azbara, you are a sly one indeed, and a man of business also, one who knows how to recognize opportunities when they arise. As I am. We have the merchandise you need, indeed. And we will deliver, if the price is right. You surely had a surefire method to do this before, there is no reason why that should change, at least for the time being. Name your conditions and your price and we shall decide if they are acceptable".

"Good, good, it seems you're not among those too squeamish for such trade. The means are simple enough, you should already have it in your possession. There is a scroll penned by me held by my previous business partners. Activate it, send the merchandise through, and your payment will be transferred at the same time, along with another scroll if you wish to make another such transaction at a later date. I presume since you were able to activate this device that a scroll will not be an issue? I do suggest precision in following its instructions, it is rather complex magic."

"As to the price, Cyanwrath and Mondath promised me 72 able bodied workers, farmers mostly, with the occaisonal tradesman. I would be willing to pay 35 gold per head for those still fit for service."

"My understanding is they were keeping the females for their own purposes, if they are now on offer, any attractive enough to serve as courtesans are worth considerably more, Though their lack of training in such services is a notable detriment. I can offer 300 each, but will require a visual inspection in front of the mirror for those. Those not fit for such service can be lumped in with the laborers."

Nyzahr-Cyanwrath bows her head low so as to suggest that she is complying with the man's conditions, all the while her mind racing as she is trying to find the best alternative to take the upper hand in this unsettling conversation…

Nyzahr is reasonably sure Azbara is suspicious of her willingness to make a deal, and fully intends to take precautions against trickery on her part. However, he also seems sincere in his willingness to make a deal here, and is most likely not trying to lure her into a trap.

Doesn't mean the deal is fair however, Nyzahr is fairly certain the price offered is way lower than what he was paying Cyanwrath.

Nyzahr, still as Cyanwrath, nods gruffly:

"The advantage is indeed on your side, Master Azbara !
I can guarantee the deal shall be profitable to both our parties. But as for the scroll you mention, it is unfortunately not in our possession any longer: its previous owner's untimely 'departure' has created somewhat of an unstable situation here and some of his artifacts seem to be missing.
A true shame, this… but I am quite certain that we can come to another way to show our good faith: maybe an exchange of envoys? Or a meeting on neutral ground ?
I myself would be willing to be "Invited" as a guarantor that no mischief shall occur but only if you, in turn, send one of your representants over with another one of said-magic scrolls. We could thus endeavor to establish a link of trust and proceed with our trade, say, on the morrow ?
But obviously if you feel too… squeamish - to use your own terms - for such a plan we can also take our trade elsewhere: it would require more effort on our part, of course, but also certainly bring a bigger profit. Your choice. Choose quick, now, as I have further matters to attend to."

Azbara considers for a moment, "I would suggest searching again, they would not likely have left it out in the open. I do not have an easy means of getting another scroll, with or without a person holding it, to you in the timeframe suggested."

"If the scroll is truly lost, I never bothered pinpointing exactly where that facility is, but you are in the Cloud Peaks yes? There is a neutral medium I trust in Baldur's Gate. I can get a scroll to him to make an exchange there. Of course, that would require holding onto the merchandise for a longer period, but I doubt you could find another buyer in that time regardless. That part of the world loathes slavers. Think you can manage?"

Meanwhile, blissfully unaware of her companions' predicament, Nyzahr is still absorbed in her dealings with Azbara, but it seems they are seeing a way to settle the situation:

" It is a fair suggestion", she replies to the chubby, yet somewhat menacing character on the other side of the mirror, " I shall make contact again shortly, with or without that famous scroll… Be it as it may, rest assured something will be coming your way no matter what. We still have unfinished business."

Without another word, she shuts down the mirror's signal and takes a moment to consider what just happened: this is a surprising turn of events to say the least, one that will surely generate more fun and games in the near future, she thinks. As for the potential for mayhem, she is sure there shall be a share of that as well: the thrice-accursed Beshaba shall be her witness, 'something' is definitely coming this slaver's way !
The White Chanter barely supresses a feral smirk at the thought ...

The Quiet Shadow says...

I have quite a bit I want Geoffroy to say, so bear with me as I get that in before continuing on. Again, with my goal of him being something of a mediator and perhaps voice of calm though there will be some disapproval. A middle ground as he considers the situation and thinks on what should be done.

Given what has been said though, especially by a few, him saying that there may be discussion of new leadership may not be needed as I felt there was much that was said well. Helps how it appears apologizes have gone around, but let me see what comes as I type.

Well now that is a interesting twist to things. Just so every one knows. Cratol is not going to leave he is sticking around. Yes he has some issues but he is working on that. He is still upset with the Mari thing but he will figure it all out.

The Quiet Shadow says...

I actually decided in large part to go forward with the idea because of the Dungeon Master asking if I might have Geoffroy be the battle leader. It was something I was considering, but was not sure if it should be something I move forward with until asked if I would.

Hopefully there will be those who actually feel Geoffroy would make a better leader, and agree to such a change. Especially that of Poljen, as he does not wish to fight his friend for the position as battle leader. Yet even of the others, as the goal is to return in having party unity and comradery.
------

Also, a small detail to add for Cratol, there is another of which the monk's attention could be drawn. The sister of a friend and comrade.
