"Ha, hostile towards The Temple, that's not the half of it really," Yrisz says as the brief shadow of grief flutters across her fine features. "When last we left things, it looked rather like the Matchless Gang had ended the Temple's presences here in Bailston Mound though, every last monk except Lywthast which is why we are so fierce to have her recovered."
Realizing that she has now entirely slacked in her punting, Yrisz tries to make up by punting all the quicker.
"I don't know if we know much more then what I've already said, Miss," Yrisz says her quirky smile returning between punt inflicted grunts. "We know that the Gang is making war with the Temple, and that they pulled in Avandrist for added muscle. Also we've heard rumor that the Matchless Gang become a pest only after the Edict of Evocation, which suggests they were always related to the Avandrists, but the Edict exposed the connection. Probably the Avandrists were in charge out of the two as all The Gang members we've met thus far wreak of enforcers and commoner rabble, not much initiative or grace among them, though I was somewhat fond of our sadistically plucky pair we killed in the tower."
"My thought is the Edict smashed the head of the snake exposing how long the its body had really grown as it riled about in pain. Unfortunately it sounds rather like the snake's head wasn't destroyed like everybody thought so we are in rather a bit of trouble here, as the snake's fangs are bearing, and the body, the Matchless Gang, isn't dying a slow death it should…These are all guesses mind you…but they fit what we are seeing somewhat…"
Again, Yrisz realizes her pace is waining and again ever to quickly tries to make amends.
"Am…I was going to the Temple of Lighting's Spear before my teacher, Ms. Bieiris, deposited me here as she thought it safer, pah, though perhaps it is though as I hear that the Matchless Gang was causing pains there too. Gah, and the next boat hand who rows for me is in for a quite a tip," she says brushing the sweat out of her eyes.
"So, am, what kind of alchemical supplies have gone missing?" Yrisz asks. "That could be quite telling as well."
