"ambush?!?" the young dragon shouted as it leaped out of the sack and fell onto the floor

"No. It won't." Arcantos said simply and with confidence, through inwardly, he was extremely annoyed. You don't say things like that in front of a prisoner! You don't give them ideas that work against you. He flinched when the little dragon lept out of the back with a shout, but that was all. There was currently more important matters happening. "We managed to defeat the band that came here without having to actually fight. This other group might be better, but against our strength in arms, they will fall. With knowledge of our coming or not."

Ch'aska jumped a bit at the interruption, but tried to keep focus. If they didn't come to a decision soon, the time limit for her spell would run out,and the only options would be killing him or letting him go."I don't see how you can be so sure we will win. We'll be outnumbered, and we haven't actually fought them yet, so we don't know how well we will fare against them. If they know we are coming, then that is another advantage they will have, and an advantage we lose.

Erudis, realizing no one noticed him, looks around at the scene, attempting to ascertain what's going on.

Spoiler:
Do I need to roll perception on that? If so I shall.

Roll 1d20 + 9 for perception check.

Arcantos growled angrily. This... lama just didn't know when to keep her mouth shut. Just because it was actually true, didn't mean it had to be said, let alone directly in front of a captive that they where most likely going to let go! the dragon quickly snapped at her, vicious saying. "Will you shut up? Actually think about what you saying, where you saying it before speaking why don't you?!"

Ch'aska jumped a bit again." I don't know that I wasn't saying anything that wasn't obvious. I am not a warrior, and even I know that."

"You'll be surprised what is not obvious to people." Arcantos said, before turning away from her and turning to the grpyhon. "Now then, I don't know that much on your kind, your thoughts and feelings on honour. But, considering that you sacrifice others to them, I doubt you would cross your gods... swear on them that you won't tell your group about us, and we'll let you go."

Erudis curiously moves close to and examines the lama after realizing the priest is nowhere to be seen.

Ch'aska sighed and nodded. Arcantos's proposal was reasonable,she guessed. She knew she wouldn't go back on a promise to Mother Moon, and Mother Moon wouldn't destroy the would if people stopped worshiping her.

While waiting for the guard's answer, she remembered that someone had spoken. She turned and saw the young dragon had awoken. "Why, hello there.

" My name's Ch'aska, and this is Arcantos and Piasa. I'm afraid I don't know who Oltan is." She turned towards the captive. "Unless that's him."

Erudis looks at the gryphon, unsure, attempting to clarify, "Oltan is a priest."

"Oh," Ch'aska said, uncertain of how the dragon felt about the priest, but it wasn't like he wasn't going to find out. "I think he's dead. Who are you?"

As he waited for the captive to respond, Arcantos turned his attention to the skull he was still holding. He was very curious to know what magic was worked onto it, and decided it would also be a good idea to test his new rings out as well. Taking his time and focusing on the task, the bipedal dragon blocked out the exchange between Lamma and young dragon as he traced a gylph of identification in the air.

Arcana:
11+10+5 (Magic glyph) = 26

The griffon nodded furiously
"Alright.  I swear on the great dual god Omecoatl that I will not say anything about you to my group- or to any other living soul. " the griffon added for clarity.

The glyph hung in the air for a while- and then the skull began to glow- light seeping from all of the glyphs carved into its interior.  But it doesn't seem to reveal its magical secrets.  It almost looks like the skull's grinning mockingly- then again, skulls always look like that right?

The griffon shudders at the spectacle.

"Please, let me go now, I've done everything you've asked and more.  Gods, I actually do wish I could just forget all of this..."

((by all means, carry on with in-character conversation, if it happens to be convenient to do so!))

Arcantos frowned at how the skull had reacted to his attempt at scanning it, then shook his head in irritation. Turning back to the prisoner, he swiftly cut him lose. They had no reason to hold him anymore, so he could go. They had more important matters, like figuring how this dragon skull, and planning how to chase down the gryphons.

The griffon dashes off, and takes off, not looking back. He soon disappears, going in the same general direction as the earlier fleeing griffons (towards Coatlcalli)

Erudis refuses to answer and lowers his head, though the coatltec's horrors reflect in his eyes.

Ch'aska rushes over to him. " Oh, it's okay. You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to. Is there anything we can do for you? Any where we can take you"?

"As far away from those Coatltec monsters we can go." He sighs and fiddles with a simple silver ring on his finger.

Erudis recoils in mild shock before thinking, "Perhaps I could help, Coatltec prisoners are something I've dealt with."

Roll:
History check on how Coatltec handle their prisoners and their caravan routes:

Erudis History Check:
The Coatltec will take the captives by as direct a route as possible to Coatlcalli. They will be on foot - easier to carry captives that way, although if there is a small ratio of captives to warriors (1:1 or less) they will fly when it makes the journey easier. Such groups can be hard to find right after taking captives- but soon enough they find their way to some sort of path- either an ancient dragon road or a trail through the jungle that has been made by the tromping of the griffons and their captives over years.

The prisoners will either be carried by individual warriors, strung up and carried between two, or tied in a line along a wooden pole when seriously outnumbering their captors.
