Re: Adventure in Eberron: The Paradox Wars
Gahz's gaze bounces from Rabina to Vaajek as they jump from goblin to abyssal and back again. He understands not a word, and by this point is wishing he had spent a little more time learning.
Even Sinan had thrown up his hands in disgust at that point, so he thought he might as well give it a try.
He finally returns to human once again, and asks in Common, "Is this really the time for this?" Whatever 'this' is, exactly, he thought inwardly. He might not speak the language, but he can see that both are baring their claws at one another for some reason. He steps between them, his bulk proving to be an adequate wall. He really hopes the hellspawn and the psychic madwoman don't just decide to blast through him and continue their squabble.
"If we're going to get into a brawl, can we do it from the comfort of our new weird egg thing? With my luck, you'd bring the roof down on our heads." Gahz didn't really like enclosed spaces.
The glowing blue mote of his Holy Star is whirling around him, faster and faster, responding to stress. "Can't take you guys anywhere, can I?" he mumbles rhetorically.
People seemed to like this better, but only marginally so - the way one might prefer to be stabbed than shot. Optimally, one isn't stabbed or shot. Optimally, one eats some cake! But there are times when cake is not available, and instead we are destroyed. This is the deep poetry of the universe.
