OOC: Okay, so I'm assuming that only Louissia is going with Ted, and
that Alex, Oz and Vesper are going to go free.
Once everything has been decided, Mrrlyn (somewhat disturbingly)
reappears before being called for. When he learns that Louissa will be
going with Ted, he instructs the two of them to surrender all weapons
and other important belongings to their compatriots. The knights
reappear and flank Louissa and Ted, and lead them further into the
Enchanter's sanctum. The rest of the company are shown out of the
pyramid and back on to the street.
They find Father Montessoro outside talking with the female guard, the
Wolfen priest keeping one eye on the little girl who is giggling while a
small pebble flies in circles around her head.
The priest sees his companions and sighs. "Alas, so Mrrlyn did take your
friend, Ted, and one other too, I see. The one named Louissa, as I
recall. Well let us hope they're imprisonment is a short one. This
knight was just telling me that the King will see you around midnight,
and so she has suggested that she take you where you need to go and then
return you to the Palace when the King is ready."
He beckons to the female knight. "This is Lady Amathea, a Knight of New
Camelot. Lady Amathea, these are the people who rescued our soldiers
from the clutches of the hated Splugorth minions. I must contact my
superiors, but perhaps we shall meet later."
With that the priest bows and walks quickly towards a small stone
building in the distance, with stained glass windows and a cross atop it.
The knight bows herself. "As the priest said, the King will see you in a
few hours. Can I show you the quarters that have been prepared for you,
or perhaps you would like something to eat? We have time for both."
OOC: I'll do Ted's posts privately for now until he meets up with the
rest of you again.
