>>> [Sir Prrcyvel]
>>> "Lord Mrrlyn checked him out." Sir Prrcyvel replies. "There might be
>>> other ways, but there's not time at the moment."
>>> The knight turns to Ted. "But Osmar is quite right. I don't
>>> particularly trust you, or rather the whole situation. Mrrlyn is...
>>> powerful... but not all seeing. But I think we need your help here. If
>>> you wish to gain my trust, and the trust of the King, you will come
>>> with us into the sewers. There we shall find Lady Louissa, and who her
>>> companion is. But if there is something you wish to tell us now,
>>> please do so."
>>> [/Sir Prrcyvel]
>> "I'll need my weapons and armor."
> [Sir Prrcyvel]
> Sir Prrcyvel shakes his head. "We shall give you the armor you arrived

> [/Sir Prrcyvel]
> The guard salutes and runs back into the palace.
> A minute or so later one of the other guards returns with a large,
> rotund man in a thick apron and welders helmet still perched atop his
> head. The fat man is holding a very ancient-looking box. He takes it
> up to Vesper and opens it. Inside, on a bed of aged and discolored
> felt, is a plane spear point of a very black metal.
> "This, sir," the man says, "may be the only black iron in the whole
> kingdom. 'Twas found, oh, a hundred and fifty years ago by some brave
> adventurer in the ruins of London. 'Neath the Tower itself, 'tis said.
> But what good it will do you I do not know, for 'tis no sharper than
> ordinary iron, though 'tis said that certain supernatural entities
> react more strongly to it than other iron."
> "I thank you my good Sir, and it is true some creatures have truly
> strange weaknesses. If it is not destroyed in this battle I shall
> bring it back to you."
The man bows. "I hope it's of some value to you, m'lord."
> A minute or so after that the guard returns carrying a large sack. He
> dumps it on the ground, revealing Ted's weapons; his Triax rifle and
> some other belongings. No armor though.
> "That devil's armor and sword," the guard says, "Mrrlyin is analyzing that."
> Looking at Ted's weapons he will take them to Ted if he isnt here to
> gather them himself.
> That done he heads down with the box holding the spear head searching
> for his companions.
> OOC: What will Ted and Oz do...?
