Talas turns to the party and says. "Now what do we do
my friends? The Lizard man that we seek is here in
this land. But now we stand before a portal whose
destination is as I am to understand it is determined
by 'She Who has no Name'. And is that not the one who
as set us on this quest?" "Do we go or do we
stay?"...Talas opens his comms to the folks outside
and says "My good friends I believe we need your
presents in the basement of the tower. It appears that
She of has no name wishes us to step through a
portal." "Lord Phanton I for one could really use our
wisdom on this decision."
