Phaeral nodded, his face very serious.
“Yes, Captain, we will explain in privacy, if you will.”
He motioned for the captain to bring his mount to the side, so they could speak privately in low tones.
“It is a very odd situation, but one that is important for you to understand,” Phaeral said.
He then explained about the parasites, and how they seemed to be controlling their hosts at the behest of the ‘Master’. Phaeral also showed the captain the dead parasites they had collected.
“So it is very important you check people’s necks, especially leaders of the community, and anyone in a strategic position to harm the community in some way, like the people who are responsible for maintaining your well water and such.”
He looked around at his grim-faced companions.
“We intend to look into this further, so if there is a way you could have people checked without causing undue panic or sending the rumors flying, we would appreciate it. Perhaps you could have the town physician check people for a ‘rash’ that is going around – nothing life-threatening, just inconvenient.”
