> "Will this suffice?" he asks. "That way you can make your own way under

(to Alex) "That alone is a good sign. Tin pot dictators don't, as a rule, give their minions that sort of discretionary authority." 

> The knights go for their guns. 

OOC: Justin doesn't.

(to the stranger) "Most of them are not knights, as far as I know, stranger. But not all of the present men are knights, and you grouped us all together in your greeting. Mixing rank levels as you did could be taken as an insult, which is the last thing we need, given existing tensions." He pauses, then continues on a different topic "My family, while not at war with Atlantis, maintains very cold relations. I can't speak for the others intentions, but I do intend to give Lord Splynncryth a very bad day at some future date, as a complaint about the poor manners of those who serve him." 

(to the group) "Lord Coake wore a signet like that."
