Without asking why, he starts off after Bongo, running as fast as he can, loading his rifle with a new e-clip. A grim look crosses his face, then he sets the rifle to the highest setting and moves on.

    While the others talk, Bongo's astral form begins the search for Griz.
    Heading towards the north end of the town, Bongo sees a gate up a head.  Two
    guards, both ogres, heavily armored with large energy rifles at their side
    sit around talking in their horrible language.

    Bongo is reaching the limits of his time when he sees a figure standing some
    miles off in the middle of a copse of trees.  It appears to be Griz, though
    the lizard man's back is turned.  He is dressed in grey armor, standing over
    what looks like a small iron pot.  In it, however, there are strange
    flashings.  Bongo catches sight of one of the jewels that the party took
    from Old Chicago and traded to Griz.

    Suddenly Griz turns towards Bongo.  Where the lizard man's face should be,
    is a horrible series of red scars and two eyes burning bright white.  The
    ruin of a mouth, looking as if it was burnt, begins shouting, but Bongo's
    time is up, and before he can discern what Griz, or whatever this is, is
    saying, he is rushing back towards his body.
  Bongo sits straight up in such a sudden manner that it might spook someone not familiar with someone coming out of an astral projection and immediately jumps to his feet.

  "C'mon people -- I've got a bead on Griz, but something's about to hit the fan.  He looked uglier than Rod on a bad hair day, and he was doing something with an iron pot and some of the jewels we used for trade."

  He starts running for the gates at top speed.
