>> "My friends," he says, his voice laden with emotion, "we have paid

>> Camelot. Where are they? The time is short, I fear, and if the
>> Faeries find us here, our troubles will multiply greatly."
> Alex smiles in thanks back to the priest. "Thank you," she states.
> After a pause for a few moments, she states, "I am not sure where

> "There was an attack by Splugorth minions and things got pretty
> Transmitting on the groups private frequency using scramble, Alex

"I know only too well the confusion of the battlefield." the priest
says. "Still it is one of our errands..."
> Alex states, "I got confused on who you meant. They took cover

"It is Faerie territory now," Father Montessoro replies. "I will,
however, instruct my brethren here to do what they can."
He begins to follow Lady Frost. "And now to our task at hand. Sir
Edmund, I beg of you to leave now and make your way back to the meeting
place. If all goes well, I shall return with your lost company in a few
hours. If not, then give my regards to the King."
He beckons to Alex. "I recommend you come with us. Waiting for us
above ground may become exceptionally dangerous very soon. The faeries
are wrathful, and will not care much whether you are Splugorth minions
or just passerbyers."
[OOC: Assuming Alex comes...]
Again Alex and Lady Frost enter the tunnel. Father Montessoro, despite
his armor, moves very quietly. He pulls out a flashlight to illuminate
their way down the stairs and through the tunnel. He urges great speed,
clearly wanting to get to the knights as soon as possible.
After several minutes of travel through the tunnel, they suddenly hear
cries of fear at the other end. "Come!" cries the priest, pulling an
energy pistol out in one hand and a cross-shaped vibro-dagger in the other.
A minute later they are into the cavern, looking down on the Dwarf gate
below, and out a pool at its feet several tree thick tentacles grabbing
at knights, a few curved black teeth surfacing out of the water and
nashing with the sound of a hundred steel knives.
