I think he's too dangerous to leave alive.

For long, anyways.

I've been mulling over offering him a thousand year stay in a cryo capsule in lieu of execution. That way we can hopefully bargain for more information out of him.

How's the siege looking?

What's the name of the country we landed in? I keep wanting to call it Cimmura but that's it's capital.

You landed in the Kingdom of Elenia. You're currently in the (strongly allied) Kingdom of Lamorkand. There's not much of a border, but you are currently not in lands administered by Primate Raven.

As for how the siege is looking; there's a lot of crossbow bolts going both ways between the two armies. Count Groan's men are organising themselves with supernatural efficiency, and seem to be preparing for something. They're probably going to do something in about ten minutes or so, but for the moment, at least, you've got a few minutes to throw together a rough plan or to ask various characters how long they think the walls would hold if you want a firmer number.

Just be careful to ensure that Martel doesn't get a questionable death scene that doesn't leave a body.

Oh, there will be a body. Finding it though...

Arkady is seriously considering trying to rid the battle of the seeker by exorcising it, but kinda understands that this (if it starts to succeed) will make him the target of an awful lot of incoming attacks...

I don't think exorcism will rid us of the bug but it may rid us of Azash's influence on the battlefield. Go ahead and try.

Can Arkady try and greet an Empathy check on Groan? I need to know if he's an innocent victim or a willing accomplice of the Seeker in all this. I can't just go around murdering random nobles, even as their soldiers become free game.

From the wall? I don't think he's that good.

I dunno, he's pretty good. Get some binoculars trained on him, maybe a long range listening device.

Felix's.

Arkady can try. He'll need a vantage point from which he can see the Count, and a pair of binoculars. (A parabolic microphone or similar will help, if Felix is willing to spend his Universal Gadget on that). He'll have to meet a fairly high target roll in order to find out something about the Count, and there's a decent chance that the thing he finds out isn't the thing he wants to find out; but he certainly has a chance of finding out something about the Count, even at this distance.

I don't think I have my Universal Gadget at the moment.

Is there a tower overlooking the wall, or does the central keep rise above it?

There are a number of towers that rise above the wall. They all have a few of Baron Alstrom's men in them, firing crossbows at the invaders.
