    "This is true. We need you. But ask yourself, do we need your... Legs? Your hands? Think about it. All we really need... is your knowledge." Maledict cranes his neck to meet the librarian's gaze straight on, baring his sharp fangs. They are smoky white. Tiny vapors of steam rise off them. And most of all, they are large. And let's not forget the tongue...

    The librarian bursts into laugh, saying "That was the single, most pathetic attempt to intimidate me I have ever faced."

    Ensifer

    Peering intently at the librarian, Ensifer raises his harmonic whisper again. "A simpler question perhaps, one that's less likely to get legs broke: who is the disembodied voice that seems to be calling the shots here?"

    He is waiting the librarian to see if he glances in any direction, assuming we can't pinpoint the voice ourselves. Rolling sense motive, as this is trying to interpret body language; if you need a spot instead, subtract 4.

    The librarian stares at the ground, scratches his head and answers in a weak voice. "I think that was the map. Sivian made it self-aware, and with some psionic powers."

    As swiftly as a snake lunging, Maledict's head whips forward, catching the librarian by the foot, raising him to dangle him in the air. His voice is slightly muffled by the foot in his mouth. "I think now would be a good time for you to tell me a one good reason to spare you. It appears then that the map is very much active already - we do not need you for that. Neither do we need you for finding the castle. And the stash, no matter well hidden, will be found, even if we have to dig it up from the ruins of the castle. So tell me, petty human. What. Do. You. Have. To. Offer. Us." He punctuates his last sentence with the tightening of his fangs on his foot on each period.

    So, it's a grapple attempt.

    And another intimidate check.

    I pray that I get no more natural ones.

    The librarian looks a bit panicked right now. (being pinned down by an abyssal drake does NOT give a good circumstance bonus to fear resistance)
    He then gather up the nerve to say "Because my death will cause you nothing but trouble. yet alive I can help you, and I WANT you to get the root."

    "So, you've got some fire in you." Maledict spits him out of his gaping maw. "You are mine now, mortal. If you serve me well, I might let you live." He gloats over him, beating the air once with his mighty wings, his tongue tasting the man's fear. He is satisfied.

    In other words, don't make us angry, you won't like us when we're angry.
    She considers that for a moment, then shrugs.
    Of course, I could care less whether most people like me or not, so I don't suppose that matters much...

    The figure ignores the librarian's comment, letting Shrike's rebuttal stand. To Shrike, he states, "Your hand and a half signifies you as someone who thinks swords are important enough to focus on, train toward, rather than just a tool a warrior uses then discards. That you keep it at hand suggests that you've mastered the difficult length, showing your skill."

    You didn't mention your sword in your description in this thread, so I hope you don't mind.

    The redhead seems quite flattered by the comment. Thank you. I do like to consider myself quite good with it. It was my father's sword, it was the least I could do for his memory to use it and master it.
    She shrugs.
    Of course, I've had it enhanced some over the years since I...got it, but it's still the family blade.

    "I shall entrust the sword to your custody. If he doesn't preform to your standards, feel free to grant him to another warrior then." He lays the scabbarded sword down on a table near Shrike and begins walking away (if no one stops him).

    I didn't mean to stop the torture, just thought I'd use a lull in the action. :P

    Huh, I wasn't aware of that, Bush, I was merely going off remembering seeing a bastard sword on your sheet earlier, and running with it. I guess a broken watch is right twice a day.

    Needless to say, Ensifer is still masking the truth, but I won't bother rolling for every dishonesty unless boomwolf tells me to.

    She looks the sword over carefully...that'd probably best be Knowledge (Arcana), but since she doesn't have that call it an Int check. (1d20+5)[14]

    As far as I'm concerned the intial rolls work for the whole 'encounter'. She's suspicious, but he seems to be being truthful...so far...

    The sword seems to be an adamantine longsword. The hilt's grip black leather with an onyx on the pommel. Assuming you remove it from the scabbard,

    The sword changes minor details in your hand, shrinking down to the size of a short sword and up to a hand and a half, then various elemental energies form along the blade briefly, as a demonstration. It returns to 'normal' longsword length and unenergized afterwards.
