The rest of the cultists look down after all of you show what your able and willing to do, but that one dwarf still has a fire in his eye as his brother starts to talk to him "Ahren you need to calm down you can't just fight out of this." The brother says as the other one calms down a bit and quiets down, the elf looks up "What do you want to know." She says as she looks up a bit, you can tell she is very young even for an elf as she looks very scared "I don't wanna get hurt, we just do what were told to by the higher ups in our home and follow after our family." She says as she starts shaking as the human leans over to her to comfort her. You start to realize that this group is very young as you start to look past the scars and marks from battle
While the interrogation takes place, Zogar reflects on the event that nearly sent him to Mythrien Sarath well before his time.
That Sacred Flame seemed to have rather more 'spice' on it than the ones he knows how to cast. Wondering if perhaps the cleric was getting some kind of enhancement, he decides to search through the cultists confiscated gear.
After the interrogation he will suggest a thorough search of the prisoners as well.
Zogar looks over his group a bit and realizes there aren't any "good cops". He pulls out his symbol of Mythrien Sarath, changes his eyes to a soothing, soft blue/gray color and turns back to the group. He takes the elven girl by the arm and walks her away from the others.
Once he's far enough away that the others can't hear what she tells him, he shows her his holy symbol with the three intertwined rings.
"You recognize this, don't you? We're not so different, you and I. The Protector can help you. He and I can keep those animals from hurting you, but we need your help. I have to be able to give them something. Why did you attack? Who are these 'higher ups' you're talking about? Where do you come from and how did you get here?"
(ooc: Oh dear. Advantage due to elven god? Due to, uhh, really amazing eyes? :) OH! Advantage due to the 'bad cop' work! Rolling in case that's valid)
"I- I don't, we just get told what to do. They like to attack the groups of soldiers to try and get supplies, we don't know who they are we just don't get food when we don't listen to them, they tell us that if we do good then well get our homes back. We don't really know what they mean but they tell us its really good and if that doesn't work then they aren't very nice, they just have someone do some sort of ritual by the doors and it opens to different places." She says as she gets a little reassured by you but is still terrified of everything going on and you can tell Alfrost watches you as you leave a bit suspiciously but doesn't interfere and Ahren starts to get a little riled up as you take her away but is calmed down by the rest of them What else would you guys like to do
"The Protector is with us, child, breathe deeply and relax. Who are 'they'? Where do you come from and how are you to get back? How did they take your homes? I can only help you if you give me something we can use."
"The priests just open it up and we go through, i don't know how they do it though. They are just the ones in charge. I don't know where we are from, its really dark though, and theres lots of old buildings that are really scary. They talk about how they're going to take their homes back or something, we don't really know what they mean." She says as she starts to eat some of the food and breaks off a few pieces "Can my friends have some, we don't get fed too often." She says with a hopeful look
Zogar steps over to Alfrost for a moment. "Can you get them some food and see if you can get anything out of these others? I'm going to keep talking to the girl. We need to know how they were going to get back."
He takes some more food and some wine to the elf girl. "This is for you. Your friends are being fed. What should I call you?" (After a reply): "I need you to tell me how you were going to get back. Is there a signal? Did you have to meet at a certain time or a certain location? It's important. We can help you, but we need to know."
Alfrost sends someone to get food for the prisoners. "I am Alseana, the calm dwarf is Franlow, you know Ahren and the human is Seleania. The people in charge like the drow open them up, he's Ishmir. He hurts us a lot. (Anyone with proficiency in history make a history roll.) They just open it up around where they came in and then we can go back, thats really all i know im so sorry, please don't hurt me and my friends we don't get told a lot of things." she says as she starts to shake a little bit
Zogar talks in an aside to his group and the sergeant. "I think they've been left here to fend for themselves. Ishmir vanished mid-fight and it sounds like he was their ride home...wherever that is. Sounds like there's some pretty bad stuff happening there, and it seems to be bleeding into this place. Any ideas on how we could swim upstream to the source of this issue?"
Or’Vill speaks up. “These guys don’t know anything else and they have been indoctrinated to a cause that isn’t theirs. They deserve a second chance after some rehabilitation. Let’s leave them there and then continue our trek towards Arinsede. There we can find more evidence of the true criminals behind this cult movement.”
