Arden quickly finds a very decent scope.  The lizard man looks at his trade
items, and says "I'll swap you, say, fifteen hundred credits worth of these
for your exploding arrows and that scope you're eyeing."

The lizard man's eyes widen.  "If you don't mind." he says, and pulls out a
small device which Rod immediately recognizes as some sort of technowizard
device.  He pops the gem inside a small receptacle and clicks a single red
button.  A small screen begins displaying several waving lines.

"Extraordinary." the lizard man mumbles.  "I've never quite seen anything
like it before.  Tell me, where did you get these stones?"

"Something Osiris and I found in the Captain's cabin.  I'll tell you about it
later." he replies.

"I don't know much, sir, save for the town here." the boy says.  "We mainly
do a lot of trade with England and the NGR.  I know that beyond the city,
the land becomes strange and dangerous, and the faerie folk are not as...
well behaved.  The few men who dare go far into the country side have said,
of late, that there have been strange disturbances.  Old Carper, my dad's
uncle, says he was out hunting on the old West Road and say a caravan going
heading towards the other side of the island, lead by a tall, white-faced
man.  Says the man gave him the chills.  And there have been strange people
asking questions of late..."

He stammers and turns away, seeming afraid to say anymore.
