Building a better mousetrap.
Macross considered the situation carefully. No one builds a mousetrap with an escape. The entrance to the real tomb had to be on the opening side of the one way doors, NOT on the trap side. That left a lot less area to cover.

Winked Out.
Macross stood still in a morose state of mind. Orlen had marched straight to the brazier and put his hand in, and then winked out of his presence. Hmmm. “Not good,” he thought. While it had the potential for an epic rescue, the campaign against the Mega-Bitch had taken a pronounced turn away from the Standing Stone’s return. Things never seem to go to plan.

Macross crushed the fear and sense of loss along with any other stray emotions he was feeling. What are we missing?

Cool, clear water!
Macross tugged gently at the bleeding wound with a set of copper tweezers and slowly slid the thorny chip free from his arm. The copper tool was a useful bit of equipment in a packet of thieves’ picks and tools. Softer than most things but tough enough for the job.

He rinsed out the blood with some their precious water and tried to remember the desert lore that the guild instructor had mentioned in training. It was looking more and more like the horses were going to be a source of water and protein. Oh well. Sometimes they decide things for you.

Genie in the lamp...
Macross cringed as the genie raced out the door. It was kind of rude, actually, after having been freed from a thousand years of imprisonment he hadn’t even said, “Thank you,” but had just raced off bragging about destruction and revenge. No good was going to come of it. Macross could see it now, a formal invitation from the King of Evil Genies arriving for him at the New Cathedral of Saint Cuthbert in Verbobonc to celebrate his coronation. He’d probably get RSVP’d next to the bitch Queen herself.

He’d just blame it on Baldomero. No one would even raise an eyebrow.

Old Thieves’ Tale
“Sometimes you need to be more careful and creative to survive,” said Talon. Macross looked at the old Guildsman curiously. “Take these magic users for example. Somehow when one casts a spell it ripples out through the ether and allows another a chance to react instinctively and interfere.”

“Could we do that?”

“No. Reading a scroll is one thing. Counter spelling is a Mages’ thing. Of course, when they are busy with it, you should be busy, too. When they are distracted, finish them off. Nothing works to your advantage like killing enemy mages. Except for keeping friendly ones alive. But that’s a story for another day.”

Remain positive and upbeat.
Macross' thoughts drifted to a social function he had attended in Verbobonc an eternity ago. The new guru that was all the rage in town was some sort of positive thinker charlatan. "If you remain positive and upbeat you will only draw positive and upbeat people to you." Well clearly there was a flaw in the thinking. If I only think of sex and perverted girls at the Women's Divinities College next to the Cathedral of Verbobonc, did that mean I would attract precisely those sort of girls to me? I think not. By Oliddamara and Cuthbert's Cudgel we left 6000 gold pieces behind in the frozen North where we aren't likely to back again. Of course, if I just think of more money, then it will come my way.

Macross disciplined his mind and his thoughts. This adventure was about to heat up and he needed all his attention on the task at hand. Exploring lost ruins was ALWAYS dangerous and tedious. What made it worthwhile was the magic and gold you sometimes found. This time, he'd have an epic chance to make some history.

Somehow, the thoughts of treasure made him positive and upbeat!

Where is the gold?
Macross looked in the wagons as they packed into the pavillion. The sudden realization that the pile of gold they had fought for was not in the cart hit him like a lightning bolt.

Macross asked Holy Mole where the gold had been packed. "I dunno. I thought I was dead there for a minute." He asked Orlen the same question. "I don't know. I thought Baldomero loaded those sacks." When he asked Baldomero, he responded, "Gold is unimportant. Why do you ask?"

"Sometimes the spider eats the snake," thought Macross as he choked back the tears of frustration.
