    With those trying to slay them subdued, Aranel stayed her tongue and let cooler heads try to salvage this situation. The stone walls lowered back into the ground, while she let out a sigh of relief.

    The woman walks past you and takes the dart from Gelert, sniffing the end.

    "Veri Root poison. Not enough to kill him. The herbs he ingests will protect him."

    She turns to look at the leader of the group who attacked you.

    "V'Raku, what is the meaning of this attack?"

    "They attack our King! I saw it with my own eyes! Amarey, I told you outsiders could not be trusted."

    Amarey walks up to V'Raku and backhands him.

    "Of course they have not! Use your eyes!" She points to the man Qora brought back. "He is one of Baako's followers."

    V'Raku scowls at the would-be assassin.

    "Now our King requires more of the sacred herb to speed his recover. Run quickly to the secluded gardens and return with some."

    V'Raku turns to run off.

    So V'Raku was not part of any assassination plot, if Amarey trusted him -- assuming she could be trusted.

    She did seem concerned for M'Balla's health and was not going 'slay all outsiders', which was a very positive sign.

    Amethyst puts her hands down. "Who's Baako?" she asks Amarey. She already suspects that if the dart did not contain enough poison to kill M'Balla, then the purpose of the 'assassination' was likely to stage an attempt on M'Balla's life and pin the blame on the Champions. Such a plot would most naturally be the work of hardline elements opposed to international influence or Dakana opening its borders.

    "While I share my comrade's interest," Qoira says, "this is a talk for behind closed doors. There has been enough panic and distrust in these moments alone"

    Amarey nods and directs you to the temple as V'Raku sprints off.

    Liam uses his telekinetic powers to gently lift M'Balla up and carry him along with you into the temple.

    Following the others as they entered the temple Imogen glanced in the direction that V'Raku was running, somehow she doubted it would have gone down well if she had offered to help the guard bring back the herbs.

    Maybe she was just being too suspicious yet it didn't make sense, if whomever wanted the King dead surely they would have used more poison just to be sure.

    Aranel followed the others as they enter the temple. Disrupting a funeral, poisoning a king, just who is this Baako to inspire such acts. And would they be able to deal with him or could he have more tricks to disable her new friends?

    The fact that the poison would not be fatal for M'Balla causes Gelert to slump to the floor in relief. "Oh Thank Goodness."

    There is an unusual weariness around the corgi that has shaken even his normally unshakable good cheer.

    Gelert forms a stretcher under M'Balla to make it easier for Liam to carry the injured man without jostling him.

    Gelert doesn't even get up from his Sploot position to follow Amarey, just lifts himself into the air with his power and floats along, legs dangling.

    Amarey escorts you all into the temple while other guards lead the other dignitaries - including Agent Barrett, away. She takes you deeper inside to one of the outer rooms of the hidden spacecraft.

    "We can speak freely here."

    She lets out a heavy sigh.

    "Baako claims to be an illegitimate son of our former King. With M'Balla's divergence from our more traditional ways, Baako has gained a small amount of support from hardliners, but not enough to be any real threat. Until recently that is. He has begun to twist nature itself, creating these twisted animal men who are fanatically loyal to him. If Baako is behind this, we need to find him now. Can you help us?"

    It didn't seem that long ago since she had last been in the spaceship hidden in the depths of the temple.

    "I think I can speak for all of us here that yes we will help you and M'Balla find Baako."

    Imogen then paused for a moment wondering how she could frame her next question without sounding offensive but in the end decided to speak bluntly

    "I hate to ask this but you said Baako has a following, would some of those followers be members of the Royal Guard? I am only asking this because yes I admit I didn't help things either but some of them seemed too eager to attack us."

    Realising that she wasn't a natural diplomat Imogen hoped she hadn't put her foot in her mouth again.
