Elymas blinks for a time, surprised at having been named as a candidate, but he shakes his head. "I am honored Brathark, but I think I proved last night that I am not fit to be a leader. I tried to get everyone to stay together, then to act to regroup, but none listened. I do not have the force of personality to get others to follow."

"I would however, be most willing to act as second to either Brathark or Tellias, whom I feel to be the best choices among us."

Manos watches and listens to Keitha talk as the group travels. He admires how the young woman knows what to say and what not to reveal.

He nods to himself in approval and allows her to do the talking. She has a nicer voice afterall. If asked a question he will respond; but he knows, at this moment, that it is better to stay quiet.

The light bearer says...

Photokles raises an eyebrow to the accusation of being an Athenian spy, "I am no Athenian. In fact, when my people left the league, my father was murdered by their sympathizers in cold blood as he fought in the rebellion that freed Rhodes from Athens' overreaching grip!" The priest realizes he let himself get a little defensive and composes himself. "I am no spy, either." Photokles leans forward a bit, "You know, for someone who appeaers to be in some manner of authority here, you seem to be lacking in information as well as tact."

The priest leans back again, relaxing his body a bit. "Were Thebans not also summoned to Sparta for the council of the kings? Has Word not yet reached your walls that Olympos has awakened and chosen heroes to act on their behalf as they had in times past? How is it that you believe I have come into my powers?
No, Theban, I have not journeyed to your burning city, allowed myself to be escorted unarmed within and then have myself subjected to your insulting accusations so that I may somehow retreat back to Athens. No, I and the others who are god-chosen, were on our way to Delphi when we saw the pillars of smoke reaching into the sky over the horizon and also ran afoul those monstrous creatures at a small farm just a few hours from your walls. They were already engaged with some soldiers as well as making off with some women and children." Photokles pauses letting his words sink in before continuing, "We were unfortunately not quick enough to rescue the hostages as they had some sort of magic that allows them to simply pass from our realm. That's not to say we didn't kill many of them before they did so. Afterward, when the rest of my companions thought it more important to make camp there then possibly coming to the aid of YOUR city, Theban, I came on my own, having faith in my abilities to heal and the protection of Helios!"

Photokles then sighs, "But, if it is your desire to keep up this unnecessary interrogation instead of allowing me to help you and your citizens, or at least provide more information on these beasts that perhaps myself and the others I travel with missed so we may shape our inquiries of the oracle better, so be it. Let Thebes be written out of the history of this epic, as they refused to help or receive the aid of the ones called by Olympos!" The priest then smiles, "Or, that history could speak of how the great Thebans were the first to lend their support to the god-chosen! How that history is written depends on you."

Photokles then tears a piece of bread off the main loaf and pours himself a glass of wine, consuming both as he listens to Hippolytos.

When Arcad sees Briadia wake up he curls up in a rather large 500 lbs ball of fur, fat, muscle, flesh, and bones and hides his face under his paw. That is until Niklaus offers him some olives, which he sniffs for a second before offering his long tongue for Niklaus to put the olives on. When they are all gone he sniffs the air, looks dejected, and gives an audible harrumph and then looks back at Briadia again.

Kallikrates looks at both of them for a few minutes after listening to Keitha, "I think there is more to the two of you than first I thought. Your story must be heard. Let us hurry to Thebes in case the evil descends upon us again. There I will personally help you find your friend until the time for our next patrol comes around. Celt is it? I have heard of Celts but have never met one. I have heard your men are fierce warriors, and some say your women too. But I must ask, are all the women as beautiful as you?" He continues making small talk with Keitha, almost totally ignoring Manos, even as you pass through the gates and into Thebes.

One of the other soldiers moves near the cart and asks Manos, "Is it true there were those picked by the gods themselves? They said the gods themselves appeared. The Thracians said as much when they rode through but they are barbarians and prone to wild exaggeration." A dozen sets of ears turn towards Manos for his answer.

Hippolytos sits back and blinks. Then he looks at Photokles and blinks again. Finally he bursts out laughing. "You have gone from a mere priest of Helios to one of the god chosen and the savior of Thebes." The two soldiers guarding the door chuckle at that. "And I, Hippolytos of Thebes, have the honor of being the one to find you. Had you simply told us that earlier I and all my men would have prostrated ourselves at your feet." He laughs for a good time then stops and looks at Photokles hard, "I have heard of the god chosen and of course Thebes sent representatives, Sparta is our close ally. But of course, you know that since the gods obviously speak in your head" he says, but there is no mirth in this statement.

"And you expect me to believe you chose to leave your god assigned course to go to Delphi to come here to Thebes? And that you left your fellow god chosen in the dead of the night to brave the lands recently overrun by those creatures to do it? And then you further expect me to believe that your fellow god chosen allowed you to leave? Do you take me for an old fool in his dotage?"

At that point the door opens and two soldiers escort in a man who looks to be in his thirties. The soldiers are not the same as the soldiers that escorted Photokles in. These soldiers have finer armor and more of it, their shields are also larger, and all of their kit is better maintained. The man is finely dressed but under his fine robes you note there is armor. And no usual armor, but armor with designs of gold peek out. "I am Pelopidas, the council sent me to see what goes on here." He looks around, "Hippolytos, tell me what is so important that you take me out of council on a night such as this." Hippolytos tells him all that he knows and that he suspects you are a spy for Athens, or worse, an agent of the evil that befell Thebes yesterday."

Pelopidas looks at Photokles, "Well, disprove what one of my finest officers just accused you of."

"I witnessed it myself," Manos replies, "I never thought I'd lay eyes on a God, but their Hephaestus was before me."

His eyes widen in remembrance. He raises his arms a bit, symbolizing the magnitude of the event. "I only witnessed Hephaestus, the other Gods were out of my view, but you could sense the presence of each of them. Like a wave of their aura, their very being, hitting you again and again as each arrived."

He breathes heavy for a moment, overwhelmed by reliving the experience. After a few breaths he continues. "It was unlike anything I've felt and will likely never feel again."

The Short End says...

After finishing his bread and honey and making sure that anyone who wants some gets a portion, Tellias answers Brathark's statement "As much as I agree with you in getting to Delphi, it is early this day, and given we were to bed when it was still light yesterday, I think we have to go to Thebes to recover the other half of our group. Painful as this statement is to me, I gave the matter much thought whilst on guard duty, probably why I missed Arcad climbing the tree"!

He smiles at the bear again and then continues "We were each chosen by the gods for a purpose. Each person has their own purpose, but that lies within our combined goal of putting an end to what ails our lands at present. I fear we are doomed for failure if we are not as one when the time comes for us to be tested further. We should still make it to Delphi before the day is too long and hopefully have the other three in tow. Besides, with the recent events & attacks they may need our help, as I can't imagine Thebes being too trusting of strangers in the night, turning up at their door. Lets take a vote and the majority will decide our course of action. I cast my vote for Thebes and the reuniting of our party!"

He moves to Brathark as the others mull over his words "I am as angry about this situation as any here, probably more so, but I cannot let my feelings overtake what is the best thing for our quest. Yes we need to get to Delphi to see the oracle, but as a whole and not as a disjointed band of stragglers left over from our lofty selection by the gods. For only five of us to show when eight are expected will not sow confidence in the people, who's hopes now lay squarely at our feet. We must reunite and show our strength in numbers, and give renewed hope to the peoples of Delphi, of Hellas and of the whole world! Let us be the messengers of gods, as we were chosen, and be like the glorious host riding into Delphi, to rid this land of the evil that befalls it." He puts his hand on Brathark's shoulder and with his other hand offers him a traditional Spartan friendship bond.

Brathark takes his hand and grasps it firmly. "Yes we were chosen by the gods and yes we have a bit of time to go to Thebes to reunite us with those others chosen. I do wonder on the reception from the people of Thebes and that is why I would rather avoid going there. If they were waylaid then what are the chances of us not getting the same treatment or worse? The only advantage we have over them is that we will be arriving during the day light hours. But that is a city that was attacked by a unknown force and then that force departed suddenly. Will we be seen as a small questing force to see just how badly they were hurt before a renewed attack? Or will be just let in with no questions asked. Avoiding the city can be more beneficial to us as we will not have to worry about all of this. I do not think that those who went in the night understood the fact that you do not go in the night to a city that was just attacked. Even the next day can be questionable. But if the rest want to go and seek the three I will use what influence I have to get us in safely."

"I have several contacts in Thebes and was well liked there during my days in the arena. I would hope that some of that affection is still there and although we are coming in the shadow of an attack, perhaps we can bring a gift?" Tellias walks over to one of the dead creatures and with a swift swipe of his xiphos beheads the thing.

He returns with the head "Perhaps this will show our Theban allies that we have spilled blood facing the same foe and that we Spartans are to be trusted as closely as we war during the wars!" He winks at Brathark and chuckles softly before placing the head in a sack on his mule. "So what shall be friends? Delphi as a quintet or to Thebes in hopes of reuniting and venturing forth as the octet we set out as?" He opens his arms in a gesture of openness.
