Zelas scratched his head, why wasn't he surprised. It seemed there was no such thing as an honest sen-rabbi. So Tar-sul was in fact a thief, but he had stolen from another thief, and seemingly without intention to do so, Zelas supposed that put him above the others in some respect. More surprisingly, Duxo had been innocent, he probably owed the man an apology, although he did kill that guard in cold blood, so even if he had started out innocent, it all evened out. Zelas sighed, how did his life become so complicated?
"Hold on. Listen, we may be merciful...some of us anyways, but we aren't fools. If we let you go now, what will stop you from laying in ambush once we exit the cave? We'll release you after we have dealt with this Korkarr, so for your sake that left door better be the right one, lest you wish to rely on Korkarr's mercy instead."
To Nim he explained.
"If we bring him to the door, there's a chance he'll die even if the door isn't trapped. That's hardly fair. Not to mention he could just as easily be a detriment."
Then he turned back to the guard.
"Furthermore, after you have answered this one's question, tell us what else, if anything we should expect once in Korkarr's chambers. We know he has one or two panthers. And I noticed you didn't mention them."
At that he raised an eyebrow.
He joined Duxo in crouching down next to the man and stared into his eyes.
"Those who know anything about the Ouzquin know that one; we always speak the truth. And two; you don't wish to anger us." He looked up at the others.
"That sleep spell doesn't last very long does it? They should be awake by now, someone please go and ask them the same questions we asked this one, some confirmation wouldn't hurt. Especially about the door."
