    As she heads after Ambrosia the carved eyes seems to be following them wherver they go. Riss can never actually see them move, nor no any of her sensors detect movement, yet their positions seem to change whenever she isn't looking at them.
    But the eyes aren't the only thing that seem to shift when they aren't looking as Riss sensors can detect that the walls themselves are moving around in complete silence outside their field of vision. It seems like they're making a path for them as there is always only one place to go.
    Ambrosia doesn't comment on any of this and just follows the path they're given confidently. Never taking a second look at anything, almost as if she's been here before.

    Eventually, they reach a huge set of doors which are already open as they arrive. Behind is a huge bunker-like complex which must be located below the temple. They must have been heading downwards all this time somehow.



    Thariza will get a nod of confirmation from Ambrosia and she can see her head deeper inside the temple accompandied by the drone.

    "We will start you operation once we're finished with this... diplomacy attempt."

    Sure enough, Ambrosia soon arrives with the drone tagging along behind her.
    Thariza (who Morty can describe) should be close to the entrance of the bunker space and next to her is a charr that looks almost identical to her but dressed in a long grey robe. There is also a couple of constructs, largely humanoid in shape, pulling large machinery down into this space from elsewhere. Seems like they're planning to store them here for whatever reason.

    "Here they are." The robed charr remarks. "Now, tell us, what or who is this?" They gesture towards the Riss drone.
    Ambrosia makes a polite nod towards the charr, apparently she needs to introduction. She then looks to the drone. "Do you want to...?"

    "I pray that you're right, Miss. I'd love to have been right this morning." Though he does not feel willing to bet anyone's life on it.
    He takes his leave. What now? Perhaps he should make sure Mari hasn't gone drinking again. Oh, and Jeb had said he could check out the bodies. Bleck. Unsightly work, but he can at least maybe determine if the poor victims were truly murdered by possessed people or by something else.
    He wishes he had some cameras to leave out. But he doesn't think he can leave his weapons out as sentries either. They wouldn't be able to report back in the morning.
    As G'nichi leaves, Lady Eiko moves off towards the back room the child was sent to.

    As he ponders his options here, his weapons do speak up. Specifically, his sword.
    If it were me, we would have dragged the bodies to the grave-site beforehand, to be buried when we had time. You should go to the cemetery.
    Probably. These people could eat them, for all we know.

    Well, it would probably be an issue for an outsider to go about burying bodies in this town. But it's a fair point. It's possible if the 'cursed' people transform as some kind of lycanthropy or they simply choose a victim which are magically struck down. But G'nichi should at least be able to identify wounds from human or elven hands or something magic. Perhaps they might even bear the mark of a spirit like G'nichi did.
    It sure would be convenient if one of them was a Wolf but was immediately killed for breaking the rules.
    G'nichi nods and heads to the graveyard. It's a good thing the town is too small to get lost that easily.

    Onwards, to the cemetery!

    The fog makes it a pain to see anything, but the size of the area and clarity of the walking paths makes it pretty easy to get where he needs to go.
    It would probably be pretty hard to actually find the bodies though, if he couldn't pretty quickly hear the sounds of a shovel striking earth.

    The muting effect of the fog will help dampen his footsteps if G'nichi decides to be quiet in his approach, but it won't matter too much. Either way he'll see Fudo's back as he digs a hole in the ground, long before he notices G'nichi.
    Off to his right, a tarp is wrapped around a big lump.

    G'nichi approaches the man slowly.
    "Hello, Mister Fudo. Grim work to be going at it alone. Do you need any help?" he asks somberly.
    The last thing he wants is to be caught skulking around by one of the people who seem to be close to Jeb's circle. He'd better just play this one straight.

    Thariza gives an awkward wave to Ambrosia and the drone. Great, more creepy machines. Where did Ambrosia pick this one up? But it seems an explanation is forthcoming.

    It might be somewhat difficult for the eyes to 'shift' given the substantial range of vision available to her terminal but they would regardless be somewhat unnerving... Ambrosia might or might not detect that the rather aloof mannerisms of the drone became ever so slightly more frigid when being made the center of attention. It might be too minute to notice but there might be just the slightest more rigidity to their stance and manner. She did follow perhaps just a touch more slowly, trying to take in as much information about her surroundings as possible.

    When arriving and being prompted for an introduction, what followed was an almost robotic: "I am Clarissa Heln-Gelter. This form is a terminal of mine that is here for data acquisition concerning the ongoing anomaly in this region." Friendliness was perhaps a difficult skill for this one. The dead air after it's statement seemed to beg for at least some kind of reply in kind, however.

    Though perhaps not visually apparent, a fair portion of it's attention was directed towards the constructs and especially the machinery they were toting.
