Daggin seems a bit thunderstruck at what occurs, though for exactly what reason remains unclear. He does not seem afraid, nor confused, merely unsure exactly how to respond. He listens to Sheridan's questions with a puzzled look himself, then to Stephan's with a bit more interest. But as two others speak up and then finish, he steps forward and takes his turn.
"Daggin Plantard here, honored Glendower, and admittedly of a magical tradition older than the Hermetic Order, tho' one now integrated into it. My respect also to the Lady to whom you are bound. To speak with one who has passed through to the other side in such a manner is a rare privilege indeed, and one which I may be closer to duplicating with my own Arts. I have no small gift in the laboratory, and look forward to plumbing the benefits of your research - I thank you, for myself and all in the Order."
As he speaks, he takes the two tomes that had solidified from the water, and hands them directly to Diedre, but keeping his attention upon the watery visitor.
"My first question is a for a clarification of your warning of dangers- what are the three greatest that you could name, within this lab, these grounds, or beyond, be those enchantments, individuals known or no, or other?"
He waits for the answer to that, and then thanks the spirit, pausing a moment in contemplation before asking his next.
"My second question then addresses your mention of the documentation of the items within this lab- I have glanced at some of your notes upstairs, and the shorthand will take a bit of reading to undo- could you point us to an index or logic to the reams of notes or your own shorthand, that would make them easier to pursue- or give a clue to cracking that code? It is only as a timesaver to the inevitable, and to avoid some few of those dangers that you warn of."
"And my last question would be more a request, for I ken that you are allowed to answer the questions, but may decline at your option, yet I will risk my third on your good will - would you tell me your name, or point me to a connection strong enough to contact you again? Or if not myself, then one of us whom you more trust. I would think that you accept that one of us will discover such sooner or later- it would save us time to so do, and for my part I would swear on my Oath I will neither abuse it, nor allow it to be known beyond these walls."
He waits, hopefully and expectantly, for the answers to the above.
