“Last time I remember it is the predator that eats the prey, not the other way around. As far the prison…”

Quoted from Player
“…wh… what? what do you mean”

Elric interjects.

Brother Darme, to Elena
I think what Zikn here is telling us is that he is unwilling to help us.

I suggest that the moment this barrier releases us, we return whence we came and try one of our alternatives. The druids are “neutral” and they’ll only help a cause that they find to be “worthy.” Now, if they were truly interested in doing some good in the world, I doubt they’d ask so many questions.

Thank you very much for your answers, Zikn, it was kind of you enough to answer them. Perhaps you’d let us know when we can leave, since you seem to have a greater understanding of this magical barrier than we do.

Quoted from Player
“And in this very clearing I very fondly recall being mauled within centimeters of my life by a worg for no reason….”

Elric tries to keep his companions calm.

Brother Darme, to Luemus
Now, really. I don’t think there’s any reason to be rude. Whether Zikn is willing to help our companions is entirely up to him and his own sense of duty, morality, or whim. It’s perfectly alright to be angry, but I wouldn’t go so far as to insult a perfect stranger.

I once helped a druid back at a small town called the “Village of the Praying Monkey.” There were some orcs destroying the local flora and fauna, and I helped put a stop to them. That, I would see as an act of good, but I would never count on a druid to do anything to help a town or city. Many view themselves as “above” their urban kin. I may not like the city myself, but I would never turn away someone who asked my help.

Unfortunately, not all druids would share my viewpoint. Many feel free to pick and choose who is “worthy” of their aid. They have their own agendas and refuse to see “civilization” as anything but an abomination that destroys nature.

Brother Darme, to the druid
I say this without meaning any offense to you, Zikn. I’m sure you have your own reasons for refusing to help us.
