Oz nods at Jacek. "The dwarves may know a little something about
bionics. We'll get you patched up."

"As a counter proposal, I just lost a good proportion of my unit and
find myself in need of both transportation and soldiers." Oz puts out
a hand to offer to shake with the ship spokeswoman. "Osmar Wolz,
Knight Commander of His Majesty's armed forces of New Camelot. Would
you be interested in entering the king's service?"

Oz trusts Ithdalkal to deal with the stranger, letting her do the
talking while he deals with the ship's crew.
