    Rashid then joined up with the group and distributed bottles of water among them equally.
    "Oh? For free?" Talix half joked. Rashid is a merchant after all.
    "Well then, if you're certain, thanks." he put the bottle of water in his bag to save it for later.
    The knight then waited to see what Eliizer had to say.

    When Krebbic received his bottle, he raised it over his head, and turned it to let the water fall on him in a quick cascade.

    Rumbling a bit as he started to speak, he said to Rashid in a gravelly accent, "'Denk-you."

    "You're welcome. I can't be having my escorts die of thirst on me now can I?" Rashid said as he joked.

    Quintin went off-balance slightly when Antara bumped into him, and he looked back with slight agitation. The back of his neck itched because his hackles had risen, but he attributed it to having a slight magic-aura sense that Antara could set off easily just by having his abilities. Quintin turned to Mei and raised a brow at her vehement reaction.
    "'Ey... Mei tis a'rite an' all. Antara ain't caused any harm. Ya gotta work on how ya perceive humans. I mean, I know his magic gotcha on edge, but ya gotta remember me mum's human too. And she c'n use a magic o' sorts..." He said seeming kind of nervous bringing that last bit up all the sudden. He scratched the back of his head bashfully.

    When Mei's tail brushed up against him his own tail wrapped toward her and he got a rush of physical excitement. But for some reason it came with its own rush of nausea. He grimaced and stopped touching Mei as he pressed on his stomach.
    "Oy, need to eat soon I think.." He said sourly.
    __________________________________________

    If Eliizer noticed what Antara did or said involving Quintin he did not seem to react to it. The gecko did nod thankfully to Rashid when the rat joined them and passed out the bottles of water. He'd seen water packaged in such a way, but it was rare. He pocketed his water. The horned gecko then nodded to everyone in turn to acknowledge their presence.
    "Thank you. Now... we've yet to travel as a cohesive group. We will need to take the entrance of the ruins very slowly since it has a plethora of traps laid out. Each have their own triggers and timing, but each have also been mapped out by would-be treasure hunters. So with knowledge, it is not quite so deadly. It is later in the ruins where we will have more trouble."

    His eyes took on a sharp look as he spanned his view across the strange assortment of people.
    "But at this point on you need to look at me as a leader. I don't care what your opinion of me is. You take my orders when I give them or you put your own life at risk. I don't like having your lives in my hands and if you fight me instead of reacting your chances of surviving our exploration of the ruins are next to none."

    He rolled his shoulders back and moved his neck back and forth trying not to get too tense.
    "The traps of these ruins are rigged and armed mechanically and magically. They are all constructed in a way that they reset themselves and cannot be disarmed permanently. Some of them... if you can read the ancient texts, give information on how they can be turned off temporarily. That is why Rashid is so important if he is able to decipher this particular ancient language then it will make our exploration much safer and will lower the chances of us making fatal moves."

    He paused a moment to make sure everyone was paying attention and absorbing the information. He looked to Krebbic and gave a quick explanation in the off-dialect of Chota just to make sure.
    "I will take lead but you will be next behind. You are in more danger than the others. Truly so should I climb up on walls and you must wait. Evil beasts will strike at you first. Do not move unless I speak it so else you might fall to traps." He also said to Krebbic after explaining the nature of the traps.

    Eliizer then looked to Talix.
    "I will take point, then Krebbic, and then I want you next. You said you can support with magic, focus it on keeping Krebbic safe and fight shoulder-to-shoulder with Krebbic should you be able. We can't let a possible ambush of monsters push past and overrun. So you are a very important line of defense."

    With that he turned to Mei, "I want you right behind as our core guard. Strike with magic, keep your aim sharp. If you feel you can't strike a blow without the those in front being in danger of also being struck then hold off until you have no doubt. And use the reach of your scythes to your advantage. If you ever feel close to losing control then retreat from the fight until you have stability again. We don't need allies putting us at more risk."
    He stated this last bit very neutrally so as not to sound harsh.

    Then he looked to Rashid, "Always be ready with your sword, walk behind Mei but not too close. Use your weapon more for defense and don't stick your neck out at any time. Retreat back further when needed. Be ready to move forward when I ask you to translate. Make sure Krebbic always stays in front of you though."

    And now he looked to Quintin, "You watch Rashid's back. Move with him whatever position he takes. Always behind him unless there is no one else in front to guard him. Don't let Mei's condition ever distract you. Others in front will protect her."

    Quintin shrugged, "I c'n guard rat-face. Easy peasy. But... what if Mei loses control? I 'elped her calm down before."

    Eliizer shook his head, "No. She needs to control her powers on her own. She can't expect you to always come to her aid. Rashid's more important to our survival... and I trust Mei has the strength to manage her internal struggle."

    Finally Eliizer looked to Antara.
    "Being a mage of sorts it might not seem best to put you as the tail, but you can drop wards, correct? I want you to always keep an eye out behind us and your sense of magic can help us know if a trap is resetting or activating behind us... that's much more important than you sticking to the middle. However if you don't feel safe, ask Quintin to take rear guard. Move up, with Rashid in tow and group with Mei and then Talix. Only do this when we are forced to group closer. I hope you don't spook too easily."

    With that he looked at all of them once more.
    "Any other questions or preparations before we eat? We need to eat lightly. Enough for energy but don't get full. I have places in mind we can break if we need more to eat."
    He suddenly had a piece of tough jerky in his hand and chewed on it as he waited.

    "No questions here," said the knight and he looked to Krebbic, "seems as though we're battle partners. I'll cover you with what spells I have once we initiate, and I'll follow you up with some offense once I'm done casting."
    He thought for a moment, before saying to the large reptilian, "I support. You fight. I will be with you. I will help with what I can."
    Talix smiled and pat Krebbic on the shoulder then walked toward the outer circle of the group.
    "Let's see if I still have it..." he said quietly as he closed his eyes and began to slowly and rhythmically wave his left hand in front of him from left to right. An amber colored light trailed from his finger tips as he did so, and it wasn't long afterwards that his whole body gave off a faint amber glow. After a few seconds he began a chant: "Forge a new path for us to follow, O spirits of the land." He spoke slowly and clearly. While he didn't actually sound much different than before, his voice was noticeably and incredibly smooth. After another couple of seconds, the ground rumbled in front of him and some earth began to rise up before him. It rose about three feet, cylindrical in shape though not perfectly at all, about five feet in diameter and flattened at the top.
    Talix stopped casting and opened his eyes, "...Ah. Good," said the knight, somewhat pleased with himself. He sat on the newly created mound of earth, took out his trail rations and ate for a bit.

    After hearing this explanation, he lowered his head with respect to his boss. "I will do what I must," said Krebbic.

    With that exchange, Krebbic looked into Talix's "eyes", still with that strange glow that the crocodile wasn't used to, and assured him with a grunt, that the two will work together to do their part in the group.

    As Quintin mentioned his mother, Mei's eyebrows raised slightly. I'm still not used to them, but if his blood is mixed with human's they must not be all that bad... She kept the surprise at the mention of magic to herself, as it seemed he wasn't comfortable letting it slip. "There are still bad eggs mixed amongst any race..." Mei whispered so only Quintin could hear. Joking or not, accident or not, Mei couldn't tell Antara's true intentions. She only had a bad feeling that he had used some sort of magic. When Quintin grimaced in pain, she shot him a worried look, then glared at Antara.

    _____________

    At the mention of the mission, Mei's face went solemn. She nodded as Eliizer spoke to her, the last bit about friendly fire rubbed her fur the wrong way but she suppressed it. Losing her temper wouldn't help now. "I understand." She replied curtly.

    When the conversation switched to Quintin wanting to keep her under control, she blushed deeply and her ears went flat. "I- I'll be fine..." she said, staring at the ground, too embarrassed to look at anyone else. When the break to eat was called she looked back at the berries, suddenly uninterested. She shoved the negative thoughts to the back of her mind and forced a smile.

    She walked towards Antara and greeted him with a curtsey, trying to be as polite as possible. "From here on out we will be working together. I am sorry for the way I acted earlier, I was only worried for Quintin." She glanced back at the others, making sure they were out of earshot. "I'm acting purely on an instinct with this, but I don't want anybody's lives to be in danger. I felt something when you bumped into Quintin. I felt magic of some sort. I'm not trying to accuse you of anything, but if you did lay some sort of spell on him, I'm pleading that you remove it before we leave. He is a kind, gentle soul I don't want to see any harm come to him that could have been prevented. I couldnt bear it." She let the words hang in the air a moment, hoping that her hunch was correct.

    (OOC: i felt this wouldnt be a longshot, since i am magic sensitive and a user as well)

    Antara nodded to Elizer after recieving the instructions. "I have no qualms about taking rear guard. I can leave plenty of nasty surprises behind us to discourage pursuit by monsters and being able to keep an eye on everyone should allow me to keep a good view of the battlefield."

    Antara responded to Mei's accusation by asking her to walk with him. (Im going to assume Mei agrees if not just ignore this next bit)

    Antara leads Mei to the outskirts of the clearing well out of earshot of the others before speaking. "I believe that quintin is going to get us all killed, he may have you twisted about his finger but he has done nothing but make enemies and provoke people so far as I can tell. Consider my little gift a bit of insurance, something to help him keep his mind on the job. I promise you it will not cause him any harm and it will fade away on its own in the next day or two. I'm probably even saving Quintins life. If he snapped at Krebbic like he does at the others there wouldn't be enough left to bury in a matchbox."

    Mei nodded and followed Antara as he walked. She listened to what he had to say, but was visibly agitated at "he may have you twisted about his finger". The fur on her back and tail bristled, her ears went back and her lips curled in a snarl. Clenched teeth were slightly visible. She managed to keep it together and hear him out before saying anything. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, calming herself. As she did, she let her thoughts slip back to Quintin's conversations with the other party members. He has been rather abrupt and rude with everyone, and hasn't tried to make friends with anybody but myself...

    "It isn't going to change my personal opinion about him, but I guess that may be true..." She let her body relax once more. "Just return him to normal once this is over, please." She finished with a sigh. She perked up quickly afterwards, which seemed to be a talent she possessed. "Lets head back to the group now, I'm sure they are ready to leave soon!" She said with a smile, her spirits suddenly lifted. She began humming her favorite song happly as they walked back.

    Antara listened to Mei's reply calmly. He half expected her to attack him at one point and prepared to throw up as many wards as necessary but was pleasantly surprised if not a little off-put when Mei suddenly started smiling and literally skipped away humming.

    Sighing Antara walked over to rejoin the group, ready to get this adventure underway
