"What IS all this equipment, anyway?" You ask him.
"It's for research." The kobold says. "Soon we'll have technology designed by me equaling or exceeding that of the Crystal Caverns." He reaches into a panel beneath the floor, and pulls out a metal leg, no more than a skeleton, with square framing around its sides. There are numerous tubes connected across it, especially on the three-toed articulated foot. "We will be attaching this first. Then, I will add artificial muscles to it based on the design of the subject's leg until he can move properly, or mostly properly, again." He slides a syringe across the table, past the prisoner's head. "This is a sedative in case he begins struggling. Don't give him too much, we need him conscious for testing."
You nod to the doctor, and to Turen, leaning over the prisoner to secure him, one hand on the bindings keeping him strapped down. He seems to notice the difference between your right hand's appearance and feeling, and looks over at you, confused. Turen does the same, watching your movements for the first sign to act.
The doctor starts up the weapon in his hand. "Secure the right leg, please."
The prisoner begins struggling, and you press down on one leg, just before quickly chanting the components to the silence spell. The black-robed kobold clearly notices this, and raises his now silent weapon to cut at you. You move backwards, and begin considering how you'll deal with him just as a scaled fist slams into his face. The doctor, surprised, falls down to the ground as Turen's fist flies off to your left, cord trailing out of what appears to be a normal hand. The prisoner screams silently in distress at this. You vault over him, grabbing the robed kobold and pinning his arms down with your legs as you sit on his chest, preventing him from getting to the weapon. He silently calls for his guards as he struggles, to no avail.
