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.”
