I wish to see otherrr things...experrrience otherrr things. I was once as you say...like the otherrrs of my kind. The island...it made me differrrent. I wish you no harrrm.
Kalir shares with you one other piece of advice, The city is a little on edge at the moment. People that are seen as obvious foreigners or adventurers are being targeted in the city. So far there have just been some incidents, nothing serious. Lay low until we have a chance to speak more tomorrow...and thank you for bringing back our people, and our history. he shakes the journal.
Both Pezcock and Grolik seem a little in awe of the surrounding city. Pezcock probably more from the fact he hasn't seen people in years and is also a little unhinged.
This area is a more of an industrial area of the docks so there are not as many people walking around but there are enough to easily sense the discomfort you see in people's eyes when they view the RMD and fear falls upon them.
You want to scarrr me to fool these humans?
Drop off the RMD and then find an Inn?

A smile crosses the beasts face, You have given something back to me alrrready forrr ourrr barrrgain. I will not forrget it. He nods to the party members that appear to have decided to take a "leap" of faith. I will brrring you back this thing you wish. The rrrest we can discuss at your stone trrreeehouse.
He comes back with the reflector, its fairly large and his flight is very ungainly but he makes it back. He drops it before you and flies off again after mumbling something about seeing you later.
You get back to the lighthouse late that day. You spot Grolik flying over you periodically and he lands just after you arrive.
That night something unusual happens...Mihai groans, mumbles, and starts crying out...he is still asleep when you see it manifest!
I am not surrre...I am no one's pet or theirrr prrrey! The female used her magic on me, I would not help herrr. I had planned to kill herrr for touching the stones that made me. It did show me the thunder though...I would like to find out how to stop that magic.
@ Aedalis, You arrre with these Prrathfindgerrrsss as well? The little one says they arrre like a family, but not as close. Do you think they would accept me? He says they know many things and see many things...I want that.
"If we are unable to arrange something, then were does that leave us?"
Seems like there are some words being said away from the meeting but you are still talking to him, please be sure to specify if you are saying this in front of him or to him.
You mean if the boat won't take me? If you tell me you will trrry, I believe you will succeed.
He turns his back to you once more, one of his claws clenches and unclenches...Keeping this metal shield frrrom you will gain me nothing otherrr than making us enemies...
I don't fearr yourr kind...though I do rrrespect you. meaning the group here.
I can move with speed and stealth that not many crreaturrres can match. he says with some pride. Maybe I can join the people that the otherrr little one talked about...the Prrrathfinegerrrs? he says with quite a bit of trouble. He says therrre arrre many in that people that arrre differrrent?
Only because I can't fly that farrr. I can go frrrom one end of the island to the otherrr and back but that is about as farrr as my wings will take me.
Most humans I have met arrre grrreedy forrr some of the shiny rrrocks or metals I will give you. Give them a small sharre of what I have, frrrom what Gelik has told me therre arrre many strrrange crreaturrres across the water, if you tell them I mean them no harrrm maybe they will they be okay...
Grolik thinks for a moment, Yesss, I have the thing you want. I have been thinking forrr a long time these past few days.
The creature for the first time seems...vulnerable...
Before you can reply it blurts out, I have otherrr things they have given me as well. Golden metals and colored rocks the Cannibals seemed to think important...and glowing things, I think what you called things of magic.
What would go wrrrong? he looks at Nim confused. He is about to speak again when Mihai addresses him.
I offerrr my help and you insult me...again. So be it, find yourrr own way to the cave of the witch women, therrre may come a time when you wish you didn't shun me.
Bluff 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (18) + 1 = 19
You gather at the bottom of the rope bridges and start to discuss the path over to the door...just then The Red Mountain Devil flies in and lands about 10' from you.
Do you want my help? I can fly each of you overrr therrre fairrrly easily. Except forrr you Nim, but I can still get you therrre. You said I should prrrove my intentions...
Sense motive DC 19:
It seems the offer is genuine, but he is not happy about either bring your ferry boy or helping you in general, it's too hard to tell.
Grolik scowls and growls at your comments maybe not understanding all of the words but at least the intent,
With that he turns and flies off into the night....
You wake up the morning and spend the day working on a rough container. You have some tools and and build as hot of a fire as you can. Without the proper facilities it is slow going and takes you most of the day to fashion the rough and quite ugly gold bowl.
This gives you a chance to sribe a scroll or something like that as well if you wish.
That evening Grolik pays you a visit...he lands just outside of camp and stops at whomever is watching for a quick chat then walks in, I see you have defeated the singing bird women. Quite a feat. You go after the magic women next?
Witch did herrr filthy magic on me and made me do things I wouldn't do...help herrr with snake.
@ Tragershen, I can tell you wherrre it is and take your little frrriend therrre so he can brrring you therrre.
@ Anton, Antorrrn isn't it? You seem to have the best instincts, they should make you theirrr leaderrr. Want me take you therrre?
Back @ Tragershen,, The Fire Mountain is mine. Leave it and you can go to the rrrest of the island as you wish.

I dealt with you as I did because I needed to make surrre you would comply, yourrr kind rrresponds to little else I have found. I got what I wanted and so I have given you the inforrrmation you seek, we both got what we wanted.
Now you should go kill the otherrr witch. She summoned the awakening magic and the ocean went away and she went into great the stone mouth. She came out again and gatherrred some things beforrre she went back in and the ocean came back and covered up the mouth...

No peeking!!!! :]
You believe that the information he has told you so far has been truthful.
He thinks on it for a moment, Therrre is the singing birrrd female. She also eats ones like you, she is at the rrruin. No otherrrs have come to the island that I know of since you have come herrre. She has two of the man-eaterrrs as pets.
He seems to be thinking on his own response...
Agreed, just meaning you would have had to grapple or attack Anton to stop him but now a mute point, thanks! Moving on.
Anton strikes the Dryad and plunges the hammer into her heart...there is a moment of silence before the huge tree shudders. It suddenly occurs to you that you never checked to determine if the tree is actually dead?
My name is Grrrolik, not Devil!
In it's more assertive tone, You arrre rrrright we did not meet underrr good....seems to struggle for the words times. You can lowerrr yourrr weapons, I have no desirrre to fight with you. Things arrre now good between us, you will see. You have completed ourrr barrrrgain.

He looks at Aedalis as he whispers but says little, I just don't trrrust her to live any longerrr. Fine...then kill herrr now if you will not let me she shouldn't live a moment longerrr, who knows what she can do if you let herrr live.
He then stares at Corbrius, When have I lied to you????
I learned something new today...Chilltouch is one creature per level. Nice spell for a Magus!
Harrrr, Harrrr, Harrrr... it laughs with a tooghy grin at Nim's rebuttal,
I could take herrr if I wish! it says quite matter of factly,
We are still in rounds at the moment, I am assuming we just passed into Round 7 as this discussion progresses...lets let the others chime in before we get too far with their discussion.
Yes sorry, I reviewed the level changes from the group yesterday and am okay with them, go ahead and update your character to 3. You are 3rd when this occurs.
The Devil snarls at you, maybe you hit a sore spot...it responds with anger in it's voice as it lifts off, Go to your doom then, I will find another way to kill the witch after you become her next meal!
The creature appears to be about 6-7 feet tall, it is usually not completely up-right. Maybe as strong or stonger than you with large claws and fangs.
