Keeping an eye on the hut from his treetop lookout, Mehesh begins to quietly tell his friends about his plan.

"Once I am in place on the roof, Winch, you try to convince them to give up the maps or we will be forced to use more extreme measures, This can all be avoided if they see there is no way to avoid giving them to us.

"Maul, Winch and the goblins block each exit and windows of the hut so no one can escape. I will drop a smoke bomb down the chimney the stopper it with some old rags, then join you on the ground."

"We don't let anyone out until we have the maps.. if they want to breath, they give us the maps. Attack anyone trying to escape until the maps are in our possession. Siege tactics can force their hand, and it better be passing us those damned maps. Then we can deal with that dragon if we want."

"Seriously Winch, without telling them what we are planning make them see that we are not to be toyed with. We will have the maps, one way or the other.. and hopefully it doesn't have to come to the second part of the plan."

Winch listens to the rogue's plan respectively and then ponders for a moment, staring off into space as if recallng an old memory. A wry smile slowly comes to the halfling's face; " I got an idea, what if we were to offer that heirloom that missus we rescued from the red brands told us about? There is also the fact that the 'Black Spider' is looking for those maps too. I bet I can convince 'em to take the 'shiny' for the maps and save 'em from the wrath of the 'Black Spider'". Winch jolts his thumb to the SE part of town; "Didn't she say it was in this part of town, in an Herbal shop"?

"You are a kind and generous person Winch. That heirloom may be worth a fortune. Why would you want to give it to these fools. I say smoke em out, and keep both the heirloom and maps for ourselves... Maul? Thoughts?"

"Lord Maul would never barter with the killers of Cragmaws."
Jaegmaz tightens his grip on his weapon while looking to the
Barbarian for approval.

"Maul will surely smash through the door and crush all of their
soft little skulls!" Zotnix adds. "His stone hammer is the only
bargaining tool he requires!"

Winch pleads with the party; " The heirloom might be worth a fortune but the maps to the mines will yield much treasure than any of us could dream. Tell'em Gundred"! Winch gestures toward the tower with the dragon; "If that dragon wakes up, we are gonna have a dangerous foe on our hands. I know we've fought our fair share of beasts but a dragon...! Winch takes a deep breath and grips his sword tightly; "If ye lads are set on this plan...then I got no other choice but to help ye".

Mehesh springs into action, saying "Escapees to the north, keep watch, I got them."

He leaps from the tree and does an acrobatic tumble roll strait into a run at full speed, pulling his bow from his shoulder and knocking an arrow to the string.

Initiative!

Back at the holdout, Mehesh shoves the man towards the front door.

It opens slowly and Favric steps out with his hands up in a peaceful gesture.

"And what of Brother Aldrien?" Favric asks of the cultist.

The prisoner drops his head in sorrow and shame.

"Hmmm, I see." He says thoughtfully. "You will obviously stop at nothing to
retreive your maps. But how do I know you will leave us be once you take
possession of them?"

"I have given you no reason not to trust us. My companions and I have been true to our word. We will leave once we have what we seek. I promise."

Favric looks into Meheshes eyes, searching for some sign that he means what he says.
After a brief moment the man calls out to someone inside the building;

"Bring the maps."

From inside the building a cloaked figure hands a leather map case to Favric.

"Release Brother Cassel to us. You may have your maps. Then you must
leave this town and never return. Do you agree to these terms?"

Maul stares at the human with discontent.
He lets out a slow growl frustrated with the chatter from the bickering human .

His grip on his hammer tightens.

Putting a consoling hand on Mauls gigantic shoulder, Mehesh says.

"No. You have no bargaining position. You live by our mercy alone. Now hand over the maps and we will leave peacefully. That is the bargain. We will not return to this shitepile unless we have reason to. Deal? Or die where you stand?"

Favric throws the map case to Mehesh, "Are you appeased?"

The thief pops the lid off of the leather tube and slides the
dirtied parchment from its case before handing it to Gundren
for verification.

A look of concern turns to one of jubilation as Gundren
confirms that these are indeed his maps.

"This is it!" he cries with joy. "Let us rejoin my brothers at
the mine. I'm sure they are worried sick due to my absense."

"Our business is concluded. We leave you in peace." Says Mehesh with a smile and bow to the cult leader.

Favric pulls brother Cassel inside and closes the door behind him without saying a word.
