    Aurea looks at Liz highly disapprovingly, but follows her anyway. She mutters something Greek under her breath. Tsoula.

    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
    No one has stepped twice into the same river.
    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    Will follows the procession as well.

    His blaze couldn't be unloaded, so it's either in his belt, with Liz, or some third outcome, depending on what procedure was for ranged weapons that you can't take the ammunition out of.

    Will probably retains his weapon. Liz only requested that the weapons be unloaded so that they do not misfire.

    The group will be led to the center of the camp, a spacious area filled with lush, green grass, great fires, hunks of strange, unidentifiable, raw meat, and two or three lizard-people busying themselves by stoking the fire and seasoning the meats. Of course, a few carved pieces of meat hang from a line strung from one side of the circular area to the other.

    Liz turns to the group after a moment has passed in silence, giving them a sufficient amount of time to both smell and taste the sweet-scented air.

    "I'm not."

    Where are you getting metal from? Will's covered in chitin, and that's what the spikes and hooks are made of, too.

    "Splendid."

    Liz replies, a disconcertingly large, toothy grin spreading across her muzzle as she attempts to hand Rein and Aurea high-proof (195-proof, to be more specific) alcohol in carved, wooden cups conveniently set on a grand stump of what once was a towering redwood tree nearby.

    "Drink. It will help you sleep soundly the whole night through. The forest can be quite noisy at night. It is surely a plague. We have grown accustomed to it, but this will help you cope, I'll wager."

    Hey! Why didn't Liz offer Will a cup?

    Reinholdt raises an eyebrow. "What makes all the noise anyways?" It is curious.

    He takes a sip, before coughing and sputtering a bit. That's strong stuff.
    Unless it doesn't taste all that strong for some reason.

    Will's body language is quite curious about why she didn't offer him one.

    Unless, of course, there's another cup, since she only has two hands.

    Aurea slowly sips to not appear impolite. Hopefully she isn't coerced into getting drunk. That just couldn't end well.

    Coerced into getting drunk! Why Liz would never even conside that foolish scheme! Aurea is perfectly capable of getting drunk without any application of outside pressures. Liz has faith in Aurea!

    "Many creatures scream when they die. Tons of predator hunt at night."

    That's not reassuring at all.

    And the drink is very strong stuff. Sweet and strong.

    But Liz still hasn't offered Will any...

    Kenneth appears to have learned much in such a short time period! That's great!

    Somewhere in this room, the puppy lies sleeping, paws kicking a tad in the air as she does so.

    "No! Not chocolate!"

    She whispers, evidently experiencing quite a nasty nightmare.

    Reinholdt continues sipping away at his drink after getting past the initial taste. He glances at Will with a funny look. It's rum! Times 2 or 3 or whatever. Like Reinholdt's going to turn down free alcohol.
    He frowns a bit though. Maybe he should. They were on a mission.
    Oh. But they couldn't continue it until morning. So it's ok. Besides, Reinholdt knows his limits! Probably.

    Aurea, still rather quiet, sets her cup down and nods in agreement when Reinholdt speaks up.

    ((Doh! >.<))

    "First off, the drink isn't a symbol of anything. It's alcohol. It should help them sleep through the night. I'm not sure that it would help you any, though, given your different anatomical structure and chemical makeup."

    Liz shrugs. She really has no clue as to whether or not certain fermented fruit will affect Will even slightly.

    "As for that temple down there, I just hope your as good a fighter as you are to look at."

    Liz is clearly once again undressing Reinholdt with her eyes as she utters that last phrase.

    "There's some sort of undead army down there. They're magically sealed inside right now, but if your party is set on getting inside of that shrine..."

    "It's important that we don't allow our minds to rest on such things. Not on a night like this. We have to enjoy life while we still have it."

    Reinholdt makes an effort to try to blatantly ignore the undressing and flirting.

    "Do you know what kind of undead?" Reinholdt gives a shudder. He hated undead. Specifically the thought of being one. Undead weren't too bad as long as he wasn't one of them.

    Liz turns around for barely a moment before rapidly and completely unceremoniously tossing a rough metal flask of alcohol at Will.

    "Experiment away."

    Where'd that flask come from anyway? Oh! It was attached to Liz's leather belt? When did she put that on anyway?

    Without turning around, Liz decides to respond to Reinholdt, her long, whip-like tail swaying back and forth behind her as she does so.

    "What types of undead? Skeletons. Zombies. The usual. I've never been down there myself, so I can only speculate."

    Liz faces Rein once again, having completely missed his shuddering. She glances at Aurea only long enough to say,

    "There's probably treasure or something down there. That's no doubt what you're after."

    before her focus returns to Reinholdt. She sighs dreamily.

    And in this culture she's supposed to be a fine soldier.

    The puppy's ears abruptly perk up. She wears a slightly alarmed look in the center of her eye. She, despite her obvious exhaustion, hauls herself to her paws.

    "Thank you."

    Though, since they communicate through body language, I'm betting that that's useless since she has her back to them.

    He'll unstopper the flask (since she threw it, I assume it was sealed in some fashion, correct?), and take some of it.

    "There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
    No one has stepped twice into the same river.
