The Elf's nerves had ceased playing their tricks on his fingers, and with trained precision he picked up the remaining arrows, and slung the quiver back in place.
While the dark skinned beauty led Thorgir in an attempt to repair the rejuvenation chamber and the Azul engorged himself with the blood of the fallen, Ardhalas did as he had always done after battle; he searched the fallen, and reprieved them of their belongings.
"It is time for answers, I think", Ardhalas said, his mihtril gleaming like the silvery scales of the Tharkfish. He found an old tome, covered with leather, with much blood and stranger things on it.
He tried to wipe off the blood on the book by scraping the cover against the wall, but was only partially successful. Then he found a toe-ring partially hidden by mucus, sweat and blood. It had grown into the toe itself, so Ardhalas unceremoniously cut the toe off and cleaned it with a piece of cloth from the Cyclopean robe. Searching further he found that the robe of the Cyclops had been totally ruined, cut into a thousand pieces, then shredded by the mighty rage of Somnak. But he took the belt tassle off, and was able to salvage three of the six arrows he had fired.
"I offer the peace of the bonfire, and invoke the treaty of Suthras", he said in a clear voice, as if it was only natural that they understood what he meant.
Looking at Melior, noticing his hungry stare at the spellbook, he spoke once more.
"We need answers, and i need spells. I shall study the contents of this here tome, then I give it to you, for study and for emergency use".
Ardhalas had already cleaned out a little corner, and he sat gently down, closing his eyes in meditation.
"First I shall identify what manner of items this one eyed monstrosity carried, then I shall read our fates, and, the gods willing, mayhaps divine some answers that will guide us towards our destiny"
OOC: First copy select spells using the helmet of reading languages, then cast detect and identify, then rememorize spells. Later, Bob and PCs willing, Ardhalas shall perform a prophetic reading of the gathered party members. Soooo.... I need answers. What spells are there in the tome, what kind of magic items are there (if any).
