"I'll take point. Amber, stick with Steve. Anything happens, you need to stay at range."

"Don't worry Amber, I'll teach you the old mage martial art called the Way of the Meat Shield. First lesson, always let the guys with swords and armor go first."

Amber slightly grins at Steve's advice.

"That's a good idea," she admits. "We're just missing the swords and armors."

The corridor outside the door turns right, leading to a set of stairs that go up. Florolf, understanding that everyone is getting ready to move, stays with the squishy part of the group.

Mihai proceeds up the stairs, calling the group over once he confirms the coast is clear. He relies on Amber's directions to move towards the armory.

Amber whispers to everyone that the weapons she found were in the room right in front of the stairs.

Mihai carefully makes his way up, until he finds himself in a hallway illuminated by torches hanging on the walls. Just by looking around, he gets the impression that this place was dug into the earth. Every surface, the walls, the floor and the ceiling, were flattened.

There are two wooden doors in front of him. Another door at the end of the hallway on the right. To the left, the hallway turns into an intersection. If he was to go in this direction and continue past the intersection, Mihai would be walking into darkness; there are no torches past this point.

He can hear the muffled sound of people laughing somewhere on his left.

Steve grins, "Meat Shields have a way of losing those things. That's why it's much better to be back here with the mages. We are good to go most of the time."

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The black mage waits in the dungeon near the bottom of the stairs for Mihai to return with the first batch of gear. He's feeling anxious about the whole thing but is trying to keep it buttoned up as best he can.

Konrad leans against the wall at the bottom of the stairs and broods over the situation. "I feel naked. I need to get my things back. They're going to regret ever taking them."

Mihai moves over to the doors. It's next to impossible that there's any trap after Amber already opened them, but he checks them regardless. Then opens and peeks inside.

An angry Steve says, "They are going to regret a lot things when this is over."

Amber stares at her companions for a moment, and then asks, "Mihai said they put... orbs in your heads. Fedler too. What... what does that do? Really?"
____________

Mihai opens the one of the two doors that lead into the supposed armory. The room is almost completely plunged into darkness, but he can tell by the other torches across the room that it is very large. He can also perceive the shadows of many weapon stands; swords, lances, crossbows, and even armors. But what catches his attention is the table on his right, and he can very easily recognize the hilt of Waterglass. It's not the only thing on the table, but without more light, he can't tell.

"Orbs record the memories of those who use them and what is a person but a collection of memories? Now what if you could put that orb into someone else's head? Who will that person then be? Will they be the person they always were or will they be the person in the orb?

The answer is they'll be the person in the orb. We tested what would happen if you put someone else's orb into anther person's head back in the Highwind. Let's just say I have some old memories now that I'll never forget and were never my own. That's the danger we all in right now.

Mihai checks the torch for anything unusual, then takes it from the wall and goes over to the table with his gear on it.

Amber is dismayed by the explanation Steve gives her. She needs a moment to take this in.

"So, Fedler is... someone else is in her head right now?"
_____________

Mihai finds all of his gear on the table and under it, including his companions'. However, he also finds a large bag of fine cloth, but at a glance, there appears to be nothing in it.

Konrad nods. "I think a friend is keeping that from happening, at least for us. SHe probably wasn't strong enough to help Fedler too. It's impossible to say how much time we have."

He puts a hand to his forehead to try and reach in, feel for an orb that shouldn't be there, to take it out.

Amber falls silent, trying to come to terms with what she just learned.

Konrad attempts to take out the foreign orb, but nothing happens.

Still paranoid, Mihai carefully checks the bag of cloth for whatever might be inside.

"Not all is hopeless. The person Anne, who is in Fedler's body, said that she is still fighting her. We are going to find her and Breeze, rescue them, and get these orbs pulled before we turn. So don't give up. We haven't."

Amber looks up at Steve, and after some consideration, she curls her lips into a small smile and nods.

"Let's fuck some shit up then."
____________

Mihai opens the bag, and what he sees inside is the starry sky of the night, stretching in all directions. He can't even perceive the lining of the bag.

Konrad chuckles at this. "And you're going to help, is that it?"

"Fuck yeah." He fist bumps Amber and Konrad if he's interested.

Amber fist bumps Steve too. She then turns to Konrad and with a very determined expression on her face, she responds with, "Hell yeah."

Konrad mirrors this strange action that the kids are doing these days. "Well, besides infiltrating a guarded fort, what else are you capable of?"

Mihai leaves the bag for the time being and straps on his armor and weapons, then takes Steve's gear back to him, goes back and takes Konrad's gear back. Then he spends a little time searching for a pair of longswords.

Amber grins. "I'll show you. But only if I need to, or Mihai is going to make a fuss about it."

That's exactly when Mihai sneaks up on the rest of the party, fully armed and with his own clothes on his back. He gives Steve his gear back, goes back to the armory, and comes back a few minutes later with Konrad's equipment. Amber looks away from her companions as they change into their clothes. Florolf doesn't. He just sits besides a pair of woven shackles and stares intensely at Konrad as he puts his clothes on.

Everyone is now fully geared up. Ten minutes have passed since Mihai has first left the dungeon.

When presented with the longswords, Amber turns to Mihai and tells him, "That's... a little too big for me."

Mihai unstraps the Knife and gives it to her - "For you, i got this. Just in case you need it. The swords are..." - he hesitates - "...in case you need to show off."
