>>> Vesper looked to Alex, "We will get out of this."
>>> Turning back to his patient, "And you will live."
>>> Vesper waits for them to pry the boards free to the other building.
>>> Digging in her gear pack, she pulls out a leaf, "I was given this and told

>>> it around the young d-bee. [SDC: 4, HP: 6]
>> Between Vesper's healing spell and Alex's leaf, Keldon's son is pulled back

device that looks like a large calculator with wires hanging out of
it. He points at the door and after a moment strange symbols appear on
