Talas takes off his backpack and reaches in to pull
out a neatly raped leather bundle. Talas then unties
the bundle to reveale a beutifuly and richly
embrodered set of silk robes that he sets out on the
bed. Talas then undresses and heads for the bath.

After the bath Talas finds himself looking at a second
set of robes that his hosts have been kind enough to
set out for him. Not wishing to offend his hosts Talas
rapes up his fine silk robes and dresses in the robes
that have been felf for him.

When Talas returns to the common room and sees both
Alex and Amanda he pauses a moment and then says "Lady
Alex, Lady Amanda the two of you are visions of utter
beauty". He then turns to Amanda and says "Lady Amanda
I know you ask me not to refer to you simply as
Amanda. But... I think this situation dictates
otherwise. Would you not agree?"
