Hist seems to consider for a moment, then....

We don't know for sure he's planing to attack us. He could be working towards something himself.He could be lurking in the wilderness, trying to ambush more explorers.

Or he could be ready to strike at any moment.

He winks, though it's slightly out of place. He returns to seriousness..

We just don't know. So we'll have to guess

I can't see him attacking the town. I don't think he's powerful enough to take everyone here. At least not alone.

Miss Anura, do you have any spells readied that could move us from the other's position, to the town, or the inverse? That steed spell could work Reid, do you, aside from the fly?
