(Well, he's actually neither of them. He's just selfish. He's a little low on gold and joins the warlord because of the payment. Okay, maybe he's a little bit of a mercenary. Not neccessiral evil though.)
Cipactli snorted. "Good. I don't like if beasts are waisting my time for nothing."

(I see.. so does he want the money to build an army and retake the kingdom that he lost? That would be an interesting story... Anyway, I'm babbling ;D) "I'm sure the boss will pay you nicely for getting rid of the Seer. Oncve Salmandastron is ours ,all of us woil be rich beyond our wildest dreams" Dalran said... his eyes glowing with the thought...
(Uh, no. Not really. He just wants the gold so he can afford food and... the company of willing females. He doesn't really care about his kingdom and lost heritage at all, though I planned to let him stumble into a quest in which he will return and try to free his kingdom in the future.)
"Sounds good to me." Cipactli replied and kept on following the pair of weasels. Hopeful it wouldn't be that long now. The two weasel which seemed to be in charge of this little troop looked much alike, despite the fact that the one had clean clothes while the others were rather worn out. Maybe they were siblings or something.
A pair of rats was among them as well, covered in dirty clothes and armed with worn spears. Cipactli carefully minded to keep his distance from them, for they had a very unpleasant smell around them.
Cipactli snorted again. If this was the best Scarback's tiny horde had to offer, then he might as well simply try to steal Scarback's treasures and leave them to deal with the defenders of this Salamandastron.
(What say we keep our posts longer for the future?)

(Sounds fair.) "Doersn't look like much I know, but we are only on the outskirts of the camp" darlin said aloud. We've still got aways to go before we reach the camp. As he lead Chapactli onward the camp slowly exo[panded in size and more and more rats and other vermin could be seen walking to and fro. Soime were dressed nicely, others were not. And the smell from the less well -off was, to put it mildly, horrible. "Only a few of us get baths, its utterly random who gets to take one. and we have to pay for it..." Darlin said, a note of discontent in his voice...
Cipactli blinked a couple of times and carefully took in the new information. "Are you serious?" He asked, disbelievingly. "Oh, in the name of Sobek, no." He shook his head, groaned and looked up towards the skies. "Just how stupid is that warlord of yours?" He asked aloud.
Rummag swallowed nervously, glancing back and forth whethever the other hordebeasts had overheard him. "Hush now, reptile. Scarback is known for his foul temper. You better watch your maw." He hissed through gritted teeth.

Yes, mr. Chapictli, you don't want to get on the bosses bad side" Darlin agreed. "The pondwe use is only big enough for a handful of creatures. and we can't bath in the sea, due to the salt water. We are simply stuck with the pond>' he shook his head. "If you wish to go clean yourself in there you are welcome to. He was nervous, if Chipactl acted up both he and rummag would be executed for it...

"Cute, sir? if you're looking for potential mates, you won't find any good ones here. We are a surly unkempt lot' Darlan replied,. "Besides, you'll be bathing by yourself... If byou want privacy, the boss will give you privacy. any anyone who tries to take a bath while you're bathing will be dealt with."
"I see." Cipactli replied, slight dissapointment in his voice. "Well, no need to further waist any time then, is it? Take me to your warlord." He replied. Maybe it was time to introduce him his new... employer.
Rummag stared at Cipactli's back with mixed emotions. He wasn't sure of the reptile. There was something about him, that told Rummag he would be trouble. But then again, he did not have any choise. Both he and Dalran were now held responsible for this strange lizard, and he prayed to all the gods he worshipped, that he would mean no trouble at all.

"Right away" Dalran said, then he noticed the look on Rummag's face. He could tell that he was having doubts about Chipactli. He was too, but they had to try and keep up appearances they didn't want to incur their master's wrath. _ Scarback sat inside his tent waiting for his 'help". "Those blasted Salamandastron hares! every time i try to march they attack and drive me back. But hopefully this "help' will allow me to achieve my goal" he said quietly as the flaos of his tent rustled in the wind.
Rummag was the first to enter Scarback's tent. He bowed respectfully before his leader. "My lord, we bring you the seer you requested." With those words said, Rummag stepped aside and allowed Cipactli to enter.
The crocodile immediately entered, examined the fox in front of him and nodded. "Warlord Scarback, I presume? I am Lord Cipactli." He introduced himself. He wanted to make the sure the fox understood, that he was not talking to some low living wannabe mage. So this is this warlord Scarback. Cipactli mused. He doesn't look that dangerous at all.

"So you presume to call yourself "Lord", eh? I am the only "Lord' here, Seer. " Sacrback replied giving Cipactli a good looking over. "A crocodile Seer? Where in the name of Hellgates did they find this one? Doesn't matter as long as he can be useful" He thought. He continued aloud. "You'll want pay for being my Seer, I take it? well, you'll have to prove your worth to me before I hand over my hard-earned money to you." Scarback said. pulling out a knife and runinng his claw over the blade.

I Reserve the right to change the contract at my leisure" Scarback replied. " Your job is to help us take Salamadatron. But for now, Rummag and Darlun will show you to your chambers. As per our agreement you get good view of the mountain. And here" he tossed a bag of coins into Chipactli's claws. "consider this as payment for your traveling." There was a number of gold coins in the bag , perhaps as many as thirty. "Now go to your quarters I will call you when i have need of you. For now, settle in."
