Gandt jumps to his feet at the commotion. When he hears Kit's assessment of what's going on, he raises his tower shield and backs up against the cliff face. "C'mon! You wanna pick a fight, I'm right here!" he shouts at the unknown threat.
Also, did Grove heal Gandt?
(He offered to, but at the time Gandt turned him down, the offer could have been made again at the time of camping....)
"What the heck...?" Kit lets the question hang in the air for a second before pickpocketing the first item he can find in Skald's pockets, mainly just for the hell of it and to relieve some stress (he'll give what he finds back), then he will see if he can step back into the darkness to determine its source.

Gandt quickly does a headcount to make sure everyone is accounted for.
Assuming no one is missing, his face flushes red as he realizes he's been tricked. He suddenly turns on Kit. " 'Oh, a wizard is attacking us'! You think you're funny, do you?" he says, thinking that Kit had something to do with it. There's no humor in his voice.
((Regarding the night watches, Gandt will take watch with Avner. I'll explain why if and when that comes around.))
Kit takes a small carving from Skald's pocket. He doesn't really have time to examine it before Gandt speaks.
(The globe is still there. About 5 minutes have passed since it first showed up.)
James sheathes his daggers.
"Very funny," he says with a glare towards Kit.
"Idiot," Amelia mutters as she sheathes her sword, while Lirith seems somewhat amused.
Avner curses the tiefling, and demands an apology.
Skald rounds on Kit, and Kit barely has time to conceal the carving (+20XP). Skald doesn't speak, he just simply stares at Kit, with his otherworldly eyes. It's all Kit can do to keep from looking away.
********************************** Lia hears something, like maybe the sound of someone laughing quietly. It seems to be coming from somewhere above the party. (+50XP, damn those elf ears.)
Lia tries to shush everyone, but discreetly. She says there's no need to get all riled up, just yet. She Listens for more of the voice, not looking in the direction now. She doesn't want to tip off she heard anything.

Kit glares back at Amelia. "Right. While we're at it, why don't you order the Wyvern to come here and pick us up. Oh, you can't, because you have no control over it right now. Funny how that works."
Kit will investigate the source of the darkness, then he will excuse himself from the camp for "biological processes". During this time, he will use his Darkvision to investigate Skald's carving in peace. Assuming the carving isn't something radical like a miniaturized version of a death warrant for the party, Kit will hand it back to Skald with an excuse along the lines of "you dropped this".

"Yeah, that's right, run away," Gandt growls at Kit's back, thinking he went a bit too far with that statement.
Then he rounds on Lia. "You're actually defending him?!" he demands, misinterpreting her attempt to calm the group down. Then, without waiting for a response, he turns his back and says to no one in particular, "...Just wake me when it's my turn to stand guard." He picks a new spot against the cliff wall and stews, trying unsuccessfully to get comfortable again.

Lia looks in the direction now, trying to see what she heard. She doesn't think she's hearing things but with so many people, it's hard to be sure. She says to Kit as he's leaving, "Yes, if you made this, make it disappear."
She then addresses the party in general, "If not, then we have a problem. I swear I heard someone laughing... but from above us."

Lia gives James a look, something explaining she wouldn't mistake wind for laughter. "Until this sphere of Darkness goes away, I suggest we all stay on alert. If Kit didn't make it, then we're not alone. Maybe we should search around."
(Just that since there seems to be someone harassing them it might be a good idea to have extra people on watch. He's not saying he doesn't trust anyone. Well, he's no quite sure about this "Kit" fellow anyway ;D)
