Game Role-Playing Character You Dragons and Dungeons The Engineer says...
Kneading my forehead, I simply sit for a while, trying to calm down. "I suppose this is a bad time to ask if somebody else wants this job?"
"I know Grant, that's why I got so angry at him. I apologize for airing my temper by the way, I had to try to shut him up before he made things even worse, and I had to show that his opinions were not representative of ours."
"Vickie, if the lord has the right mindset, and I have little reason to think he does not, he is not doing us a service, but rather allocating additional resources to a project that needs it. If there is a cost, it lies in terms of him lowering his expectations of us a little. So long as we still go out and get the job done, that's a cost we can live with. The caveat to that is if his estimation of our capabilities drops too low, we may end up relegated to guard duty or even farm work. That is… unlikely to get us to our goal of finding a way home. But I do not think we are in danger of that, not given the work we have already done."
"If things progress well, sooner or later we will likely be capable of handling a challenge like the one with the hobgoblins without additional support. But that is not the case today, and letting him know that was the right thing to do. Even from a callous perspective, he loses out if we fail and fall."
"So, I guess I'll have a chat with Thomas, try to explain things, and ask him to stay the hell away from Lord Douglas for a good while. I would appreciate it if someone checked in with Be, see how she is doing, and if she has recovered anything else of use. What else can we get done today?"
"If we can, I would like to return to the tunnels tomorrow, we're running out of downtime to spend, and dislike the idea of leaving those prisoners in there regardless any longer than we must. That only gives me time to make one scroll however. What shall it be? The fireball seemed effective."
