Mommut and Pellaelin follow Fury up the stairs, although Pellaelin was not as quiet. Fury stopped at the top and turned around putting a finger to her mouth with pursed lips and then gestured them to follow. No one seemed to pay attention to them as they went over to where Laele crouches down peering over the small wall. They looked on and listened on what the exalt was preaching. They both join her with Fury and are all peering over the barrier.
Mommut focused in on the boy dark skinned boy wearing animal skins... Damon... The cage was hanging over the center of near the man speaking.
Everyone began to notice something about the child filled cages, a slow drips of blood from each of them, once they hit the ground they begin to glow a bright red as they land in a groove on the ground shaped in a strange Arcane mark. After they notice that they realize that the pattern in which the cages had been put strategically over head shaped like the Arcane mark. The group notes that the chains are all leading to a portion of the room against the wall where two cultists monitor the chains and the wheel levers keeping them suspended above.
The exalt, presumably Baron, is dressing in a robe made completely of orichalcum. In one hand he held a orichalcum staff and in the other he held a clear orb. Baron continues his sermon, "The cursed Dragon blooded have brought creation into ruin. Everyday the Fae pushes their borders in more since they do nothing to stop them. Everyday they tax all the cities of creation to fund their wars to keep control of us. And the Scarlet Empress has gone missing and now they are just a headless Dragon. Now is the time to strike against them and take Creation back. Now is the time, with the Children of Unconquered Sun returning to bring us into the next Golden Age."
"All Hail the Unconquered Sun!" The crowd of cultists cheer.
The Exalt continues gesturing to the cages above, "These chosen ones will serve the Unconquered Sun by helping us summon a powerful force that will help us put an end to the Dragon Blood and cleanse the Blessed Isle. The time is nigh my friends. And all of you will be rewarded for your devotion to myself and the Unconquered Sun." The cultists cheer loudly.
