Yeah, alright. +1 to the blood-decoy-and-run thing. Try to make 'em good and realistic in color too, make sure whatever hiding place we choose still lets us see our decoys, and try to use the stonework for our hiding-spot somehow.

Modification: Just make one, and hide it somewhere super obvious, like just under the table.

If we make lots he may catch onto our intentions. One is just a clever ruse while we actually hide.

+1 to blood decoys. Way better than my dumb idea.

Create a bunch of kobold shaped blood decoys and get the fuck out of there. Hide in the first convenient spot you find after 40 seconds. Watch to see what Matthias does to the decoys. Confirm that he isn't just going to strike you down when he finds you.
Modification: Just make one, and hide it somewhere super obvious, like just under the table.

"3, 2, 1. Ready or not, here I come!" He uncovers his eyes and looks around. "I have found one..."



"Grawr?"



Once you are satisfied that he is not going to smite you, you release the decoy.

If Matthias doesn't find us in, oh, five minutes or so, !!dodgeroll!! to a simpler hiding spot. This is meant to build his confidence, after all!

Speaking of hide and seek, who is that third (!) player in the blood metal helmet? It looks like another of Matthias' kind, which is a bit unexpected.

Also, I can't help but think of his original greeting:
"There comes a point in every journey when the path is not clear."
"One must ask oneself what one seeks."
I know what he says he seeks the whole killing everyone and drowning the world in blood thing but I suspect all the procrastination and game playing reveals a different desire?

The Mathias-looking guy in the background is Grawr/Craig's blood golem John, I'm pretty sure.

Anyone get the feeling that Matthias is just bored and possibly slightly crazy? Maybe he's just been stuck here with nobody to interact with except the occasional dead hemomancer, and he doesn't know of any way to pass the time besides killing them.

Hm, addendum to my previous suggestion: if that helmet-thing behind Matthias moves to attack him, shout a warning and point.

EDIT: Oh wait. That's our blood golem. Well if it against all odds is not our blood golem, then keep an eye on it.

You know what, I had a second look and I think you're right. I don't know why I didn't recognize him before.

How much power do we really have over a blood golem like this?
Try to see through John's eyes. Use him as a spy on Matthias's movements (because he's looking for Grawr, not John, right?) and if Matthias gets uncomfortably close have John make a noise to distract him.

+1 to this--

--not to this. Now we've determined Matthias isn't gonna just smite us once he finds us, I figure we can just let ourselves be found after a little while. There's no need for further shenanigans.
