Discussion with Old Lizard continues.
Bael and Amber make it clear that they wish to make amends for the battle in the cave earlier. They learn more of the Sarhaugin. The lizard men have been driven from their lair on an isle to the south west in the kingdom of Irendi. It’s a few days sail away and Bael questions if the Sarhaugin would attack the realms of man as well. Old Lizard nods, saying they revel in death and destruction. The lizardmen have been attempting to forge alliances with other undersea races. However, it seems that the emissaries from one race were the little blue goblin geezers – he doesn’t think an alliance will be forged there! Dolphin boy speaks with Old Lizard in a language no one else understands, but it seems he is willing to return to his tribe and garner support for the campaign.
Old Lizard mentions that the high priest, who hates humans anyway, is more angry than usual as his sacred snake and one of his acolytes have been slain. In a more immediate effort to forge friendship Bael and Amber suggest that the acolyte might not be dead and they might be able to return him. Old Lizard thinks this might help a bit. They also suggest that they might be able to supply some weapons, seeing as Snake Eyes bugged out on his deal. Lastly, Old Lizard mentions that a giant crocodile living nearby, normally worshipped by the lizardmen, seems to have gone mad and attacked a lizardman patrol. They cannot kill a sacred beast themselves, but the party could and should do it.
Before leaving for Sulescu, Old Lizard says that one party member must remain as security. Bael volunteers and the rest return to see Sir Marcus.
Sir Marcus is interested to hear the tale, and is pleased with the negotiations of Bael and Amber. He is happy to release the acolyte and the weapons stash that was impounded. They were poor quality blades anyway. He has heard of the Sarhaugin and is not happy to think of them establishing so close to Karameikos. He also agrees that trade links could and should be forged with the lizard men to help cement peace.Read More
