>>> Jacek's metallic face is inscrutable, his glowing cybernetic eyes
>>> betraying nothing. For a moment he says nothing.
>>> "I owe your friend Ted nothing." he says. "He unleashed this evil on

>>> But I have now sworn myself and my people to New Camelot, and clearly
>>> my King has some trust in you. Sir Osmar has left this to me to
>>> decide, so this is my decision. If the thing can be contained and
>>> controlled, then I will not put off my peoples' rightful revenge until
>>> your quest to save Ted is completed. But the condition of my agreement
>>> is that this bound creature be surrendered to me upon the completion
>>> of the quest, and my people will agree to its fate, as Sir Osmar

>> it does no more injury. Whether it tells the truth or not is beyond
>> our powers."

> Ted agrees reluctantly to Jacek's conditions.

Jacek shakes his head, though his metallic face and glowing red eyes
make guessing his thoughts impossible.

The chief druid smiles woefully. "If this is your course, then we can
offer you some aid in getting there. A group of travelers, including a
number of Technowizards, were trapped here during the battle. They
make their way westward tomorrow, and have a ley line craft that could
take you. I am certain that, if we asked, they would gladly give you
