Both Korvarl and Percula let out sighs of relief - one more reserved than the other while doing so - and as the pixie moved off to one side to watch the goings-on and keep Caiden company, the dwarf took Huo’s book without question.
If this tome held the knowledge they needed to defeat such a monster as the demon below them, there simply wasn’t time to waste. Silvershield flipped page after page, admittedly a little incautious with the old book as he scanned line after line for previous learning. A smile actually worked its way through his beard as he did, however; indeed, this book seemed to be the answer to all of their problems.
Granted, Korvarl had never been a terrifically strong advocate of the gods, but if there was any time they’d listen to him, it was now. A plan rapidly formed in his mind as he tried to memorize the pattern that made up the summoning circle required for both parts of it. Finally, he closed the book with cautious but hearty enthusiasm.
“I dunnae where y’got this from, ol’ man, bu’ it’s got what we need.” The dwarf grinned, turning to the group. “Th’ tricks in summonin’ circles; we c’n summon celestials, an’ they c’n do the fightin’ for us ‘gainst tha’ monster. Grant’d, if that doesn’t kill it, it might jus’ distract it enough t’make a circle ‘round the big demon and send it righ’ back t’the ‘ells it came from.”
“So, did anybody pick up chalk?”
Perkula, meanwhile, watched the group read and discuss their options, glancing between them and Caiden. “...Sooo, I guess we’re gonna end up fighting big snakey down there, huh?” She mused, glancing at his expression.
“Whiiich means we’re gonna have to go ‘all out’, right?” The pixie suggested with a gentle nudge of her elbow into his arm. She would have gone for his ribs, but there was a little too much bicep in the way. “I swoop in and save the day and you… do your thing?” Saffron prodded him jokingly, giving Caid an encouraging smile.
