As the guard had announced, Amberline arrives only two minutes later...she looks stressed, even a bit pale with shadows underneath her eyes, yet she manages a weak grin as she recognises you
What a fine company to pay me a visit! Mr. Tosscobble, Alcheringa, Mr. Elliott and two new faces. Feel welcome in the Duskwardens' home, a tiny isle of order in a sea of swirling chaos.
Amberline grins an arches an eyebrow
An egg hunt? Mr. Tosscobble, I didn't expect less...I guess it must be a dragon's egg then...or an aboleth's egg? she smiles genuinely but as no one of you continues to jest, she slowly shakes her head Don't say you're really looking for a dragon's egg?!?!?!?! in her state of mixed surprise and shock, she doesn't even pay attention to Kenta.
"No, no, Amberline, my dear. We are not going after dragon eggs today. To be honest, we are in search of eggs of a naga. We are hoping to cause some trouble for the vile reptiles and boost my cousin's reputation in the cooking world. Do you know where we might be able to find such a nest? My friend Kenta is also wondering if there is any profit to be made with such an expedition? We thought that perhaps you could help us out."
Amberline's smile fades at the mentioning of the cunning reptiles
There are rumours about a secret nest somewhere under the city...I guess you are referring to that place...well, the rumours also tell of hideous traps, mighty guardians, powerful magic and...ah well, I guess you got the picture? Still interested? Thought so... ok, not very surprisingly, we don't know where that place is, but I do have an idea where to look. There's a large chamber lying centrally underneath the city, from there various tunnels spread into the more distant regions of the labyrinth that lies under Kaer Maga, I would bet a small fortune that one of these tunnels leads to the nest...one of the unexplored tunnels.
"This sounds like the place. However, if we are going to go and deal with traps and monsters and such, I'm just wondering if there is anything else we can do for you while we are down there. I mean, hunting for eggs certainly sounds like fun, but if we are already down there, I think it would be nice if we accomplished some non cooking goals as well. Are there any lost Duskwardens in that area or enslaved creatures that need rescuing, or at least some shiny gold for Kenta and all of us to share? I mean, if we are hunting eggs, wouldn't it be better to kill two or three birds with one stone?"
