Dice doesn't respond to Mihai. She can only wait for the party to decide what bleak fate they have in reserve for her and her companions. She then looks at Konrad with an expression of confusion on her face. She doesn't seem to understand what he is talking about, and the red mage thinks she might be genuine.

Steve flips the Barb over and shackles his arms behind his back. He'll do the same to Mace with his manacles. He'll also pat both men down looking for extra weapons or anything interesting.

Once he is done, he'll join Mihai and the others in the room.

"I've secured the big angry guy and the guy with the mace. They could both use some medical attention." He looks over at the yellow mage and the unconscious man but doesn't say anything to them.

"Good work. Are these the same as from the warehouse?"

"No, they were different. Maybe they work together?" He shrugs.

Steve found a few items of interest.

Deep and Mace:

Mihai turns to DICE - "What were your orders?"

Konrad tilts toward Mihai, whispering. "She has no idea what we're talking about."

Mihai glances at Konrad, nods slightly, and waits for DICE's answer.

Dice needs a few moments to gather herself. She's a woman in her thirties with short blonde hair and a scar on her cheek. It's clear that she has seen her share of fights. She licks her lips, tightens her hold on her companion and answers with a nervous tone, "...To- to guard the base until the Grand Commander's return. He ordered us not to speak to you. Just to feed you and ignore your lies until you he could bring you to Zest's Gate to be judged. For your crimes."

"What?" Steve's mouth drops open in shock.

Mihai sighs - "Makes sense. He's short on manpower as it is. Why waste people who know anything on guard duty?" - he looks back at DICE - "Our only crime was being stupid enough to get backstabbed, but the less you know about it, the better. Was Reeves alone when he gave you the order?"

Dice is conflicted by what she is hearing. There's no reason for her to believe them, except that they haven't killed her and her companions when they could.

Amber arrives with Sunny in the room and takes a look around. There's a small table at the center with many dices on it, some coppers and silvers and a bottle of wine. The chairs have fallen over, surely because of the battle. There's another large table in the room with a map of the Archipelago, drawn to scale. It's as long as the table, 15 feet long.

Also a desk, farther into the room. This is the office of someone important, but the shelves against the walls are empty, and there's no decoration. A few lanterns illuminate the supposed office, and it's just enough to see the safe in the corner, hiding in the shadows.

Dice relaxes a little at the sight of the teenager.

"...No. There was a woman with him. A redhead. She didn't say anything though. The Grand Commander ordered us to bring you here and guard you until his return. Then they left on a ship."

Mihai's face loses strength at the mention of Fedler, and a a whirl of emotions hint through it before he regains control - "Did he say when?"

"Not- not exactly." She's worried Mihai won't like the answer. "At least a few weeks."

"Did they have a fairy with them at all? About this tall with a shock of blue hair? Her name is Breeze." Steve's worry for his friend is very obvious in his voice and manner.

Konrad leaves the other two to interrogate the woman and takes a look at the map on the table for anything marked out.

Dice turns to Steve. "No. They didn't."

She gulps.

Konrad approaches the large table and discovers an important layer of dust on the map. It's similar to a few other maps he has seen in the past, but this one shows a lot more details; topography, water currents, cities and even hamlets. At first glance, nothing on the map is market out. He would need time and more light to study it.

Konrad:

Konrad rolls up the map and pockets it, then comes back to the yellow mage, looking at her intensely.

Konrad:
 

"Piracy," she answers.

Amber scoffs. "As if. They're still Coins mercenaries." She pauses, having realized something. "Were Coins mercenaries, I guess."

Dice's eyes widen. She stares at the party members.

"You're also with the Coins?" she inquires, a little more relaxed.

"Depends on how you look at it. Our final job was..." - he stops himself, as he realizes how long has passed - "...yesterday. Only, when we finished offloading our cargo, Reeves' man paid us by having us ambushed, stunned, bound and incarcerated. The girl you saw him with is..." - he stops short, but is unable to keep from staring between her and her companion in her arms, letting his face betray some anguish before reigning it in - "...she's under a spell. And now we have to figure out where he took her."

"I... I'm sorry, but I don't know where they've gone." Dice lowers her head and looks at her companion. Disquieted, she looks at the party members and offers a plea. "Can I make sure my companions are okay?"

"Do you have medical training? They really could use someone to help patch them up. Do you have any medical supplies?" Steve looks over at the others to see if they approve.
