    "Well, worth a try" he mutters to himself. Then to the others "Actually, the river doesn't look too hard to swim through."he says, thoughtfully "I suppose I could try it, if I took off this armor again".

    He doesn't seem very happy about it, mostly due to the color of the water. He'd really like a nice bath, back at the Temple. He'd even put up with Ethin taunting him again about his sister, which only happens...oh, once a week, mostly. "The water seems calm enough."

    The big man kneels by the water, dipping his hand in to remove some grime. "Can't say I've swam in years but I ain't afraid of no water. I'll give it a shot."

    Tie the rope around your waist, that way we can pull you back if something happens.

    "Yes, that seems a good idea" Audric says. As Llaars kneels down, however, he begins to loosen some of the straps that keep his armor in place. He wants to be ready to go after him if there are unforeseen difficulties, and this means being able to get his armor off as quickly as possible, if needed.

    Knowing all of their silly worrying was just in his best interest, Llaars nods and ties the rope around his waist. He tosses the other end toward Audric before making a running jump into the river.

    The rope comes loose when Llaars hits the water, and begins to sink. Thankfully, his initial plunge seems to have worked well-his jump must have carried him over four meters, and he is already nearly a third of the way to the boat.

    Audric curses under his breath as the rope comes loose and quickly coils it back. He takes an half step forward, watching Llaars' progress, tense and ready to intervene.

    Llaars makes it to the boat without any incidents, though there was a bit of starting, stopping, and a few seconds of swimming the wrong way involved.

    No threats, cephalopodesque or otherwise, seem to be near.

    Strength is correct.

    One thing becomes instantly clear: unlike swimming to the boat, you cannot just sink into a natural rhythm and swim without stress. Slow though the current is, you are swimming against it, you're fairly sure that there aren't oars in the boat, and it's hard to swim while pushing a boat.

    "Thank Aldaran" the paladin whispers under his breath when he sees Llaars reach the boat, then, as he notices that he is having some difficulties in bringing it back "Antal, now it's the time for that hook of yours. As soon as he is in range we try to hook it to the boat. That way maybe we can make it easier for him to get back."

    "Here, take it" Audric says, passing it to him, still keeping a wary eye on Llaars' efforts "Can you throw it, or do you want me to?"

    Antal returns one of Audric's looks, I'm not sure anyone other than myself should do anything with ropes anymore.

    Audric can't help but smile slightly, despite the seriousness of the situation. "Maybe. And I'm not sure you should be allowed to freely do...anything, really, given your recent antics." He turns serious again. "If you can, throw it as soon as he is near enough. He needs all the help he can get."

    The hook fails to hit, and in fact falls over 30 feet short. Just because you have enough rope apparently doesn't mean that you can hit.
