Terra nods. "I agree. We plan this out as much as possible, then execute the plan with care, expecting the worst and preparing for it."
Looking closer at the other monsters in the pyramid, Snowfall would recognize them as Brodkil Demons. They are a race of evil giants that average nine feet tall and are MDC beings, and they are quite cruel and sadistic. They are also notoriously lazy, and rarely do anything that they don't have to, and almost never learn magic. Instead, they focus on more physical combat skills. There is between fifteen and twenty of these fiends lazing about the pyramid.Snowfall went into a list of the creatures he saw inside the pyramids, referring to his video whenever possible (I believe Sherwood implied there were more than only vampires and the Maggots in there with the Vampire Intelligence). "Perhaps we should ask Jorge and his tribe about each of these creatures? What do you want to do about the traps and the ropes attached to the hundreds of vampire corpses?"
Quiet brooding, eyeing the footage - trying to spot his tainting mark amongst the corruption by enough forces to fill an entire pyramid... most of these threats, he seems to disregard, not worth much worry while he is in there as well. The lone vampire - he takes a second look there, then simply shakes his head. "Not him. He is demonic in nature, not a vamp. Would be dead already, otherwise. Can't see him, here. Might be further down, with the other abominations then. Or he wants us to think so, that could be possible, too."Snowfall displayed his Altantean Crystal Eye and used its projection ability to display his entire tour of the magical pyramid. "If we use the Walking Fortress to attack the pyramid, aren't we doing Jorge's Tribe a disservice? Pyramids are holy ground to his folk and Atlanteans and, unlike the average shrine, temple, or church, you can't just put a magical pyramid back together again and expect it to remain magical." He sneezed and excused himself. "Besides, here we are with just about all of the information I could get and it's a lot! I mean, just look at these rooms, these treasures, the hundreds of vampire corpses strung together by rope (which I'd love to burn or sever!). The evil holed up in there has its act together!"
"Miss Terra, I've learned that just a single one of those hell-born Maggots has a good chance of defeating all three of your boys - and those things travel in packs!"
The spirit-messenger took his time pointing out detail after detail. "And here we have what seems to me to be the master vampire's very own hidden room and suite, accessible only by these teeny holes in the wall!" Snowfall turned to the Crazy fellow.
"Sir? Is this the guy you're after?"
"Maybe I could. Worse pacts were made - most ended in betrayal. How well would they do? They are quick, and sneaky, I'll give them that. But a direct confrontation, against these things? I can take them on, no problem, but they? Maybe yes, maybe no. Their blood on our hands. Sure, maybe cat bloot - still blood. Worst case, ours, too. We have a dragon, right? And that shiny armor, too. If he is down there, maybe that's enough. Perhaps the cats can watch from afar, in case he tries to escape. Or in case they retaliate against the town."Terra does some thinking. "We have to make some decisions. As much as I want to think that we can do this fight on a wing and a prayer, I have a feeling that those fifteen or so Brodkil demons are going to be a real problem unless we can find a way to get Jorge and his shapeshifters to work with us and bring the fight to them. If we can get them to pull away the daytime defenses, the rest of us should be able to take down the Maggots and the Vampire Intelligence."
She looks over at their newfound ally and says, "I understand that you don't like the were-jaguars, but if we can get them to do this, we won't be working along side them at all. Can you handle that to be able to get to our main targets? If not, we are going to have to find some other allies out there to assist in this fight."
The little fairy giggles as Snowfall showers her with complements, then leans over to see the image that you are showing her. With a rapid shake of her tiny head, she says, "Yes! That's them! Ugly things, and they like those nasty vampires!" She shudders. "We can aid you with our magic if you want. I like the idea of doing something to help!" Arabella flaps her tiny wings and hovers there, looking very fierce and determined.Snowfall took the initiative by going to a spot in the Atlantean Crystal Eye's footage that displayed Brodkil. This, he showed with an apology in his best Elfish, to the faeries. "Hey there! Sorry to show such nice, young, and beautiful ladies something horrible but do those approaching giants look like this?" He held out his furry paw and showed them the video-like projection.
