Dani lept back through the air, and landing in a crouch, looked up to see Jora already scrambling to her feet. She raised her sword high, and charged the giant woman again. Jora deftly caught her blow with her shield, directing Dani by her momentum, away from her body and to her left. She followed through with her sword, slicing the air close along her opponent's back, as Dani spun and parried with her blade. Their blades met with a clang, as they spun to reposition themselves for the next blow.
"Sis!", Rajae interrupted them as she came running up. Dani crossed her blade across her shield, signalling a break. The women turned to Rajae as she walked up, the rest of the troupe already approaching from their camp.
"What did you find out?", Dani asked her sister. "There's a number of enemy groups patrolling the perimeter...here, here, and here...", she pointed out as she drew a map into the sand. "There's also some sort of magical locking mechanism that the Mursaat use for a number of things... I haven't been able to figure out precisely what they unlock, but there's a couple... here... and here..."
"Allright, we'll attack them at first light.", Dani decided. "I want to have a look at these locks, they must be related to the gate mechanism somehow. Now, remember to stay close! We'll take the lead. Raj, take your team and stay behind us. Move out!"
