- "We will not try to escape, could you escort us to the temple of Organa and we will explain, once our man has been stabilized?" Grim asks. "We are clearly in no condition to prevent you and your men from arresting us."

The Stinettian Centurion slows and holds his men a few feet away.
He looks at you, your wounds, your dying comrade, the fact that you've CLEARLY been in a massive battle very recently.
"Uh," he says. "What do we have here? What... uh... Tell me your situation."

“Not that feel like doing anything other than resting right now,” Lenneral says quietly as he raises his head from his chest where he sits, “But now that they are exposed, we may need to exploit the situation while we can.”
“So best we start to sort through all our papers and other findings to see what we have and where it may lead us,” he suggests. “And who this wizard may be. He’ll be a danger to us for sure.”
“We also have to consider that our identities are now known. And plan with this in mind.”
