Sialillion ambles around the room in a circle, slowly, and looks  
around it with dreamy look on her face, as though trying to awaken all  
her senses to the place.   "This chamber seems ancient... most likely  
of Wolfen construction judging by the weapons on the table.  I'd wager  
this has something to do with our mummified Wolfen friend above, but  
for good or ill I am unsure...."  She comes around full circle and  
stops in front of the table of weapons.  She stares at them for a long  
moment, then holds out her hand and mutters a quiet incantation.  
(Sense Magic)  As she examines the weapons, she says to the party with  
her back turned, in an almost disinterested and indifferent tone, "I  
wouldn't lie on that table, either.  Some kind of techno-wizardry, but  
broken.  Not a good idea to trifle with malfunctioning magics."  Then  
as though hearing herself out loud gave her an idea, but said mostly  
to herself, "Hm, maybe that Alister fellow could be of service..."   
Without skipping a beat her hands are waving again and she says in a  
loud clear voice "Kylir! Viknar! Alister Quinn!  Alister, get over  
here, there's something you should take a look at." (Calling)

While waiting for Alister, she picks up the longbow and checks it for  
heft... she's eyeing this one for herself.
