"That is for the King to decide." Mrrlyn replies. "I am but his humble 
servant. But I suspect that he will want to meet with all of you before 
the day is done."

Louissa stands up straight and tries to put aside the horrors and 
sadness. "Lord Mrrlyn, I am Lady Louissa, heir to Fort Peters in the 
Kingdom of Poughkeepsie. My kingdom's ambassador resides in New Camelot, 
and I formally request that he be alerted to the presence of myself and 
my companions."

Mrrlyn's eyes narrow. "As you wish, Lady Louissa." he says finally. 
"Your ambassador will be alerted."

"Yourself." the Enchanter says as he snaps his fingers.

"Take the lizard man and all those who would go with him to the First 
Level holding cells. They are to be fed and given new clothes, but all 
weapons and other equipment must be surrendered to the warden for 
safekeeping pending the king's determination."

The silent knights surround the company. "And now I must be about my 
business." Mrrlyn says, clearly dismissing them.

The knights motion for the company to depart, three flanking Ted.

OOC: Okay, what's everyone doing here? Going with Ted or remaining free?
