" Soltlak! , there is a third group much closer to the road. Be careful! "

Manweh'mato looks at Skasa and sighs : " Let's catch up with him in case there is trouble. I just saw a third group much closer. "

"Ok."
And Skasa follows Manweh'mato

Spurring their mounts forward to catch up with Soltlak, the two halflings catch up with him just as he's pulling up to a stop at the point where Manweh'mato indicated that the groups would cross the road.

After about a dakika, a group of kobolds, of the exact same composition as the one further back, emerges from the grass.

Seeing the party waiting for them, the kobolds are suprised for a moment and the ones on the ground look to the mounted one for guidance. He seems more in control of himself, however, and acts as if this is what he was expecting.

"This is our road!" the one on the monitor lizard exclaims, "You need to pay a toll to pass!"

Skasa looks at his brother with a confused look on his face.

"A toll?" Soltlak looks at the halflings, then back at the kobolds. "I suppose, sera. But could you answer a few questions first?"

"What are they saying brother? Who's got questions?"

-Questions- being the only word Skasa kind of understood...

"Questions?"

Whatever response the lead kobold had been expecting, its apparent that Soltlak's response wasn't it.

"I suppose so... What kind of questions?"

Soltlak smiles, flaunting his teeth before he continues. "We've been looking for a manead who was traveling with a caravan, headed this direction. Have you seen anyone like that recently?" He turns to Manweh and speaks quickly, "He was a manead, right?" then turns back to the kobold.

"Ma-ne-ad?" the kobold replies, obviously unfamiliar with the word, "What is a ma-ne-ad?"

Soltlak looks around, unsure of what to do. "Well," he began, "It's sort of like a human. Did a caravan pass through here recently, within a few days?"

"Hu-man?" the kobold replies, Soltlak's description obviously doing nothing to illuminate the kobold's confusion.

"Enough questions. You pay toll or we'll take it from you."

" Brother, get ready. I have assessed the situation and it doesn't look good. How much of the metal coins do you still have from your pay on the ship? These Kobolds want some of it to let us use the road....can you believe that?"Manweh'mato turns to the Kobold who asked for payment and defiantly with a snicker asks him: " So I was wondering, how much will it cost the three of us to use your magnificent road?"

"Uh... (from memory...) I got about 40-50 golden pieces and maybe a dozen of the shinier ones. Should I be getting ready to fight now?"

" If he is ridiculous in his demands, yes we may have to show them we can fight. Do not kill them if you don't have to and remember the two other groups that are coming."

"2 gold a foot," the kobold replies, returning Manweh'mato's snicker with a sneer.

Doing a quick addition in his head Manweh'mato decides he really doesn't like that pushy Kobold.

Two gold would be too much for all of us you little scrany half dog lizard. Two gold a foot over Father's ashes and then some.....

" And if we refuse? That is more coin than all of us are carrying right now. He are looking for a job."

"You expect me to believe that a group rich enough to afford mounts for everybody isn't rich enough to pay a toll?" the kobold questions.

I don't like the look on everyone's face... I'm not taking any chances here.

Skasa puts his hand on his brother's shoulder while mumbling a few words (Cast Cat's Grace spell on Manweh'mato - 4hrs duration).

"Here you go brother... I have a feeling we're going to need this..."

Soltlak looks at the halflings, annoyed. "We can afford the toll. It's only..." The lizardman looks around, counting the number of feet on his fingers. After some time, he continues, "Ten and eight." He furrows his brow, thinking for a moment, then looks back at the kobold. "That's a bit high. How about 10 gold for all of us?"

"I'm not nearly so thick as you, my scaly friend," the kobold replies, "That's less than half of what I asked for. Now either pay in gold, or we'll take that pony instead."

I hate money and what it turns poeple into. We would never charge anybody for a walk in our forest.....

" There is no way you are getting my pony. Will you accept ten gold or not?"

Manweh'mato once again expects the worst and has a hand on his bow.

"And then some," the kobold replies, grinning at his own joke.

Seeing Manweh'mato's hand go to his bow, one of the kobolds on the ground unslings a horn from his shoulder and holds it so that all he'd have to do to sound it is put it to his lips and blow. The other two, meanwhile grab the hilts of their swords and eye Manweh'mato suspiciously.
