Nicademus stared dumbstruck as what they all had previously thought to be a mere stone statue turned its head to look at the Skayleigh man currently perched on it's shoulder. Argon's sudden roar had the knight instinctively reaching for his sword, finely trained instincts immediately recognising the sound for the warning cry that it was. Still, Nicademus refrained himself from acting further beyond than gripping the handle of his sword; the stone giant had yet to take any action aside from turning to look at An-Hasst and the knight was keenly aware that, even with a mage on their side, their chances of taking on the giant in a fight and winning were slim at best, especially when they didn't know if there were more of its kin nearby.
The fact that the giant had allowed An-Hasst to jump down without harming the Skayleigh only helped to further convince the knight that it'd be best for him to stay his hand and so Nicademus stayed silent as the half-giant conversed with the stone giant. The mention of a game of Hide and Seek, one in which Calanon seemed to have wandered into unknowingly, worried the Andred man, especially since they had no idea how the other stone giants would react to the presence of the elven ranger. The one with whom they were talking to seemed amiable enough, and the fact that it would allow them to leave in peace was a relief, but who was to say that the other giants would share in their comrade's peaceful disposition?
The knight took a step closer to Alice as An-Hasst continued to talk with the stone giant. "I think," Nicademus began in a hushed whisper so that the giant wouldn't hear. "That it'd be for the best if the rest of us were to leave. I am admittedly not an expert on Stone Giants, but the fact that An-Hasst is partly a giant might play in our favor. At the very least I think he'd be more welcome than the rest of us if he were to venture further inside to look for Calanon....at least I hope so."@POOHEAD189@The Fated Fallen@Fetzen@IcePezz@Gardevoiran@BCTheEntity@Stormflyx
