Bongo takes off his own hat and places it over his chest as a somber look of
his own spreads across his muzzle. "Bon voyage, old man. Here's hoping you
can finally find peace on the other side."
As the rather exuberant orc comes up and addresses the group, Bongo looks at
him quizzically as he replaces his hat. Noticing his rather leery reaction
to Rod, he leans over and mutters, "I think you spooked him, buddy..."
He shrugs his shoulders. "Well, if the skipper says it's a special day then
let's hope the beer's just as good as it is 20 years from now," he quips with a
slight grin. "I could do with a hot shower and a chance to dry out my
gear... and try to replace the armor that just got sizzled..." he grimaces at the
thought of the gaping hole in his backplate -- and even though he hasn't
checked, he figures his duster is probably in need of replacement too.
