Looks like the best bet is to just head right in and get off at the wall of stones.

Well even if they're going to ignore me, I'm not going to be ignoring them.

A servile under-priest bows... "High Lord Immortal Kunnifax, we are advising the emperor about the ongoing situation... is this location a problem?"

I try to look over the room without looking like I'm looking over the room. They'd have better chairs than folding chairs if this was more permanent; how recently has this space been in use? Yesterday? A week ago?

Less than an hour: people are still bringing equipment in and setting things up...

How long did it take us to get this far? It feels like they are far in advance in preparation for reacting to an attack that started at about the same time we entered the tunnel. Does it seem like they got an early alert or someone jumped the gun? Did we hear an alarm on arrival?


(( TGLS - Why are you demanding the attention of the previously distracted priests? Next time, you're the one on the dolly. ))

Spoiler:  


Vassarious takes a look at Halycone's behavior and becoming suspicious, attempts a "Tradecraft as Empathy" check to make sure they feel like they are really on the same side here and if Haly, is hiding anything.

tradecraft

1 + 3 + 2 = 6 ... success

Oops, I didn't think about that. I thought it might be related to the point spent earlier.

Its been about three minutes. You did not hear an alarm. Its possible someone jumped the gun, or that they got an alert ahead of schedule... you're not sure at this point. Its unlikely they got this much set up in three minutes... but they could have easily gotten it done in seven minutes with good staff.

V doesn't think Halcyone is a double agent: If she was she would have continued past the preists into the emperor's chamber or into a nest of immortals.
