Solid stone of what kind? Such things may suddenly be called into question as stone meets steel. The steel of Keld's gauntleted fist as he simply attempts to slam it through the stone armor. And possibly grab Cessie. He's quite strong that way.

Whisper, satisfied that Ezra is getting his just punishment, even if it's by water instead of fire, returns to searching for Grass-bringer.
Since most of the fight (except Cessie and Keld) is over, I'll go ahead and reveal what is found in the wagons:
Wagon 1: Purna's wagon, with Grass-bringer.
Wagon 2: Supplies
Wagon 3: Slaves (one human male, one elf girl, that Harnel has seen)
Wagon 4: Slaves ('Up' and the troll woman)
Wagon 5: Slaves (6 slaves)
Wagon 6: Supplies
Slaves (6 slaves)
Empty, slaves rescued and at the forest's edge
Wagon 8: Empty slave wagon (formerly Whisper's)
All of the slaves are gagged and manacled, hands behind back. The keys will be found on Ezra. The woman called Up in wagon 4 is half dead from starvation and dehydration. The two slaves in wagon 3 have suffered a bit of smoke inhalation, but should recover quickly once put in the open air and ungagged. The rest are in good health.
Back at the forest's edge, Richard remains encased in glass, one goblin man is unconscious after losing his arm, one human man is unconscious from near asphyxiation, and the other three rescued slaves are healthy.
Whisper is distraught that Grass-bringer is gone, nearly catatonic with grief.
Since I'm travelling this weekend, please treat the slaves as npcs and Ezra as godmoddable (or dead, if Cessie chooses to drown him) and carry on without me.

It's most likely larger then him and also pretty determined to protect it's summoner, slamming him with a surprising speed as he attempts to get close.
Cessie won't drown the centaur however, the elemental will retreat from his lungs eventually and choose to just keep the centaur in place. I can't imagine him going anywhere any time soon after nearly having drowned though.

With the fight wrapping up, hopefully no one will noticed the glamoured glass-head moving at a slow jog into the forest. He's invisible now, and since Cessie's occupied, Nayir hopes she won't be able to spot him leaving.
((I'm going to do a bit of godmodding to wrap things up. Let me know if I went too far and I'll edit.))

"The nightskinned owner woman took Grass-bringer away,"
Whisper says mournfully. "What if I never see him again?"
She doesn't appear to be talking to anyone in particular.
I'm on a break from posting. Feel free to godmod (within reason) or move on without me.
