The three warriors seem completely befuddled. "Please wait, we are
attempting to transmit control codes." One of the warriors seems to be
punching grayish patches on his armor, but nothing seems to happen.

"It appears," the warrior says to the company, "that we owe you an
apology. We had assumed you had taken control, but clearly you do not
control this thing

OOC: I'm going to assume that Alex attempts to use the rune dagger's
psionic powers to input the control codes to the orb.

The dagger informs Alex (privately via telepathy) ~I shall attempt
this, but be wary, and be prepared.~

There's a pause for a few seconds, and then the orb speaks again,
"Control is ceded to the rune-trapped entity. Awaiting instructions."

It would appear that the rune dagger now controls the orb. As this
dawns on the remaining warriors they announce, "Our demand now stands
again, deliver us control of the orb."
