OOC: I'd like to introduce our new player (after much delay), Troy, who is
manning the Elf, Talas.

OOC: For our new player's benefit, Alex is the red-haired woman talking to
the shopkeeper.

"Lost friends." the shopkeeper nods.  "I've had my share.  It's our lot in
life, I'm afraid."

> [Arden]
> Arden widens his eyes slightly, then grins what could only be called an 'evil'

> Phaeton?" Arden nods. "I think he knows, too.
> [/Arden]

The tattooed man clears his throat.  "Indeed." he says.  "But this is not
the place to speak of it."

> [Arden]
> He looks a little distant and his eyes glaze over for a moment, then he

> [/Arden]

> [Alex]
> Alex looks surprised but does not really go pale. She looks over at
> Phaeton and it is clear in her eyes that she wants to know what started
> Phaeton so much. She runs towards the stange elf and asks, "So tell me
> what is the name of this ruined temple?"
> [/Alex]

Now the entire room focuses on the Elf, Talas.  Even the shopkeeper, despite
trying to look busy counting gemstones, is leaning forward.

Bongo whispers something into his comm.

OOC: For the new player, Bongo is the dog boy.  Your character doesn't know
yet, but just so you don't lose the thread of things too much.

[Meanwhile, outside...]

As the boy guards the strange Elf's horse, Bongo's voice, much quieter,
comes through on Kyle's radio.  "I think you better get in the shop, Kyle."
