[Little Girl/Thing]
"I know what any prisoner would know about her fellow prisoners." the 
girl answers, still giggling.  "The Grimla'ar enjoys playing with its 
food before it eats it, and this Grimla'ar has been without food or toys 
for a very long time."

She sits down and begins playing with her.

"I have said I would help you.  These others, they do not interest me, 
and do not need me, so I have no desire to intervene on their behalf."
[/Little Girl/Thing]

> At the same time, she is thinking 'Boy am I insane.'

The blade responds without words, but Alex feels a warm, approving 
feeling all over her body.  It's literally all she can do to stop 
herself from leaping at the creature right then and there.

> [Justin]

> Justin will try his strength against that of the tentacle. It's

> [/Justin]

Justin feels the tentacle give slightly, but not enough.  As strong as 
he and the armor are, the tentacle is that much more.  The psi-sword 
cuts into the tentacle, and more of the dark blue liquid pours out of 
new wounds, and he feels the tentacle's hold weaken, but he can now make 
out the bottom approaching, covered in slime and filth.  He and Frost 
will likely strike the bottom before he can really damage the tentacle...

Meanwhile, above, there is chaos, as knights, along with the new 
stranger, the Wolfen priest rush to the edge of the pool.

The priest shouts, "If they cannot free themselves, then we must go 
after them!"
