"By the gods, snake man!" the white haired dwarf shouts. "Now's not the time for questions. You've got a damned army about to land on your head, and some mad faeries itching to get to you first. The Lady says she knows you folks, you helped her out, and she's returning the favor. We call her Hafrizelam, which in your ugly tongue might be called the Nameless Lady. But I'm not getting into another fight with those miserable faeries, so make up your minds fast."
The old man's son points and shouts in a very guttural language something that sounds like "Z'krak!" The company, looking behind them and seeing the large hover fortress landing and dozens of heavily armed Kittani leaping out, get's the drift of the younger fellow's exclamation.
A number of the soldiers that Frost had helped rescue are running, staggering or crawling towards them now, their wounded on their backs or being dragged by them. "Save us to, Master Dwarf!" one of them cries. The poor soldiers don't look like they have a hope in hell on their own.
"I don't know about that..." the older dwarf, Snoru mutters.
"Well you better learn it real fast then. If you let us in, you're letting ALL of us in. I don't care if you kick them back out on their butts after this mess is past, but you're not leaving them out here to die. Period."
Still glaring at the little man (who she refuses to call a dwarf) she motions to Koba."I could use a hand speeding up those soldiers a bit, soon as Smurfy here makes up his mind."
