Hmmmm. . . That seems foolish. Though I do not fear my own death, it seems an easy way either to go to an ambush or invite infiltration into one of our strongholds

It would be, but you are still in Cheadsolas and this conversation is taking place through multiple 'Sendings'.  Also, we told them it would be from a spot in the forest, not one of the towns

I assume this takes place while you are still in Ajax's company, before you leave the town.

On that first night, the Fey comes back to Ajax (who is alone in Cheadsolas) that the word is being spread.  The is an excitement among some of the Fey.  Most don't believe it, but some are willing to take the chance.

Do you only want to give the Fey one night to spread the word of the escape to the Beastlands, or multiple nights?

Grant will pray for several sending spells per day as needed.  He thinks that they should come up with a series of five or so words that covers major points in Ajax's memory to use as a test when they contact him to make sure he is not being affected by the Fey.  He also thinks they should wait no more than 3 days to Gate the first batch.  He advises Ajax to start to Gate the Fey when 50 or more have been gathered, whether the 3 day time span has passed or not.

By the end of the first night, 25 Fey come to Ajax to be taken away.

They would not be coming back to Balinhost.  You are waiting in Cheadsolas until you deem there are enough Fey to go to the outer planes.  You Gate from there.

Ellic questions the fake mayor the next day in the secure building.  He invites Grant and Haas to attend along with the two clerics from Cheadsolas.  You put up a zone of truth and a detect lies.  Four competent clerics in the room makes this not difficult.  The battery of spells he is subjected to: psionic, clerics, and druidic, as well as old fashioned intimidation make him compliant.

Q: How long have you been impersonating the mayor?

A: Three months.

Q: Why did they not make him forget like the others?

A: Someone needed to guide the new memories and have answers.

Q: What were you before this?

A: An actor in Scalehome.

Q: What are there plans for the towns at the end of a year?

A: To control them.

Q: Who do you order to?

A: The voice.

Q: Is there a cure to the memory loss?

A: I don't know.

Q: How many others are allied to Scalehome in the towns like you?

A: At least a few in each town.

Q: What was your goal when talking to the people?

A: To keep them thinking this is all normal and everything is okay.  That the town has always been this way.  That Scalehome and Dukalia are our allies.  That the gnolls are monstrous.

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: Treasure.

Q: How long before you are missed by your superiors?

A: Three days.

Q: How do they contact you?

A: Sending and other magic if necessary.

Q: What will they do when you don't respond?

A: Come looking for me.

Vor'Ruk punches his fist into his other hand when he hears about this.. Causing little bone slivers to fly around the room from the turkey leg he just pulverized.  " YES! (spewing yet more turkey) This solves our problems, let the enemy come to us!  Where we can meet them at the sharpened point of a heavy lance and trample them under the hoof of the light cavalry charge. " 
  An audible but distant "oorah!" greats your ears as a unit of orcs reply to their commands cries from outside.

Vor'Ruk speaks up " Stubborn as always Ajax, the Fey would only leave for a way all the way home, to the Beastlands.  They don't want to cross lines. "

I don't take your meaning.

Ask about the 2 sakorakai in town that the fey were instructed to ignore.

A: One is loyal to Scalehome.  The spellcaster is being paid to not interfere.

Valizar would like to know what The Devourer is up to and where to find him.  Where does he fit into the grand plans of Scalehome?

Valizar doesn't care much for this answer.  Unless Haas or Grant subdues me, I slap the taste out of this guys mouth.  Subdual damage of course.

Grant is getting exceedingly tired of Valizar's antics.  He does restrain him as he is about to strike the Impostor.  In deference to Haas, he does not take further action against Valizar without Haas' permission.  But, he does not allow Valizar to strike the impostor
