Raddick stands around with Fido, adorned in his new studded leather barding and saddlebag, waits for the rest of his companions to show they are ready to depart. Fido doesn't look happy at the new chaffing he is to endure and a moan-like chuff and groan falls on his master's deaf ears. "Hey, Xan. I have a way with animals, except when they decide to not listen in favor of protecting fair maidens, that is. Let me talk to your Sister there."
Before leaving Callenburg, Raddick spends some time getting to know the mule and laying down the law on her responsibilities. Until they reach danger, she should be mindful of her instructions to follow the monk's lead without any stubbornness."Okay, then. I think I should bring up the front line of the main group, alongside the cleric. I can instruct Fido to guard you, Mantis, or you Slyph. Depends on you two."
"If the bugman is going to range ahead a bit as a scout, Fido can help with his nose. If not, then I will have him protect the whisper gnome for safety's sake. "
He pats the dog on the head affectionately as Fido looks up at his master while Raddick mentioned the dog's name.
With Xan at P-15, Sarah at P13/Q14 (off the map BTW.
) I figure Raddick would be at P17 to allow space in between if necessary.
Take 10 on Handle Animal (+5) instruct Sister Sarah
