Magnus just looks back and shrugs. It's a bad situation, but either we try to turn back the clock, try to force this battleground into what Ambrath spent time and money creating, or we accept the ire of one man, and at least not be despised by the other. At this point, trying and failing would sign us over as enemies by one, and incompetents by the other. Not exactly words I want describing me. Besides, if we hear Blacktree out, and don't like it, we can salvage this situation with information for Ambrath... Maybe. At least it would be a damn sight better than returning emptyhanded.
