Merrick slowly comes out of the darkness and you notice it is a Nothic. One eye with a ball shaped body and claws that look razor sharp with fangs in its mouth. He eagerly takes the food you have given him. He exclaims in your heads a cry for joy!
Cairn approaches the nothic with a days food ration in his hand
These people who live here are terrible. They just take whatever they want and give nothing back. Im sure you already know this first hand from them. If you can help us, then i swear that i will see to you getting what you need to survive. I will see to it that you have at least one meal a day for a month!
22 (if allowed advantage, from giving food, 18)
Cairn hands over the days ration, and a water skin
Ree'lyn observes the whole development of the situation so far, paying attention to the creature's behavior. Mistrust and repulsion in his reddish lilac eyes, it occurs to him whatever information he had learned about such creatures in general, as much as paying attention to this one particular individual.
Ree'lyn the creature just wants to help you guys fight glasstaff.
Cairn the creature now tells you in your head. " Thank you!" " In the door to the left there are 3 bugbears in the room to the left once down the stairs" " They won't let you near Glasstaff on the opposite side of the hall without a proper disguise"
"If we take a short rest, we can try the plan of making them believe we are envoys to join their lines as superior lackeys." - Ree'lyn offers to his friends. - "From what I gather, this creature really wants to help us. Maybe it can convince the bugbear of our disguise as new Redbrand? " - offering the creature the opportunity to prove itself useful and as an ally of convenience, Ree'lyn adds: - "If you add the bugbear to the telepathic link, can we all speak together and you reinforce our statement of being new field leaders? Or even if you can reach for them individually, the point still stands."
"More information, much likely." - taking a deep and slow breath, Ree'lyn glances around, then at his friends and then at the nothic. - "So, besides my previous questions for you to answer, add the next one to the list:" - the Drow narrows his eyes considering the creature's reactions. - "What do you know about the Glasstaff and the Spider?"
