It looks like some sort of pendant, though you can’t get a very good look at it. All you notice is that it’s purple. The wizard seems to catch something about it, but you don’t have much time to process his reaction before Badger continues.
“But that wasn’t the only thing. She also gave me a warning, to pass on to you. I don’t know what it means, or how she did it…”
“But it’s clearly important,” Minnie says. “Out with it, then.”
“She said, you have to strike fast, before the air turns to dust and the sea swallows the earth,” he says. “I don’t know what that means.”
“I do,” Minnie replies. “Well, not the second part, but I know what she’s telling me to strike. Not sure how I’m going to do that unless we can get that woman conscious, though, so it doesn’t change things that much.”
“Um,” you say. “It might mean a hurricane’s coming.”
“You’re saying that like it’s more than a guess, but we don’t have time to talk about it, so you’d better explain on the way,” Minnie says. “Thanks for the warning, Badger. You should probably get back to safety.”
But Badger doesn’t respond. His eyes are fixated on the shield.
“Where did you get this?” he asks. “No, I suppose that’s something to explain on the way too. I’ll go with you.”
Well, you aren’t sure where they’re going, but you might as well go there too. It takes a bit, but you manage to explain to each other most of what’s going on. Honestly, though, you’re both clearly missing a lot of information, although the wizard’s eyes are lighting up in a way that suggests things are making more sense to him. Doesn’t seem like he’s inclined to share how, though.
But when you get to explaining the shield, Badger interjects with an odd question.
