The guard glares sternly at Cludge. "I can hear you. The laws are quite clear on the matter. No one of orcish descent is allowed into the holy chambers. I apologize if our laws do not please you, dwarf. They are in place for a reason, and you would do well to follow them while you are in our lands."

Shadya holds her hand up to Cludge as if asking him to remain quiet.
Shadya tries to feel out the guard's motives. (1d20+3=23)
"Your distaste for a man who has protected me with his own life on this journey is apparent, but I think you overstep your bounds. It is for my father to deny entry into his own chambers. The war has been over for years, and this man enters here as a friend."
OOC: Shadya attempts diplomacy (1d20+4=13)

"Perhaps this... man is an exception to his cruel race, but I cannot make exceptions." He has a lot of trouble calling Kurgahz a man. "Perhaps it would be best if just you entered, Shadya yn..." he trails off, because the red curtain has just parted to reveal a tall, tanned, gray haired man. He has Shadya's eyes. "Thank you, Muhaimin. I wish to walk among the breeze anyway."
He turns to look at Shadya and stares at her for a moment, a sort of sad smile coming across his face. "Ah, Shadya, you look so... old... Come, I need a walk." He embraces her and leaves his arm around her shoulder as you navigate the maze of chambers again. Muhaimin follows you at a distance. As you walk, Shadya's father talks, "It is a long journey from Orussus, and I worried that you would not even receive my letter. But
PhyrahHalor carried it to you, and that is good." To Shadya's companions he says, "I am Hayder, thank you for bringing my daughter safely to me. Please, introduce me to your companions."

Kurgahz squints as the little man first insults him. Knowing that he'd have to deal with this some here in this ciity, he tries hard to stay silent and hold his tongue. To his surprise, while he stays silent Gludge speaks in his defense. The half-orc grins a little as the dwarf is heard by the guard responded to. Before anything else can happen though, Shadya's father appears and begins leading them back towards the outside. As he turns to follow, he throws an evil grin over his shoulder at the guard who follows behind.

As Cludge turns to follow Shadya, he fixes Muhaimin with an icy stare. Oh, aye, I'll foller yer laws aright, please me er not, he says. But if yer thinkin' about ever becomin' a c'reer diplymat, I'd say yer gonna be mighty disappointed. Til we meet again, then.

Shadya smiles and does a polite bow of respect to her father before she giggles and embraces him tightly. "It has been too long father, but I have seen and learned much on my journey. These brave souls made the journey with me, and without them, I fear the winds would have blown against me."
"This is Lasair. She is from the desert of fire, and has a way with peaceful words."
"This is Kurgahz, a brave warrior who has proven his worth and loyalty repeatedly."
"Cludge is also a fine warrior, who is not afraid to speak his mind."
"Conuld is a talented mage, and knowledgeable on many subjects, which has proved to be very helpful on the journey."
"And I hope you still remember who I am." Shadya says with a mischievous giggle.

"Mm, fine friends you have made. Lasair of the Fire Lands? Which part, may I ask? The Lands of Fire are vast.
"Kurgahz, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for protecting my daughter. I apologize in advance for the behavior of my tribe, things are... well, I-" He looks at Shadya's grinning face and smiles.
"And Cludge," he says, not continuing his last sentence, "I have known many a brave dwarf, you are certainly most welcome in our city. Tell me, how do you like the architecture?"
"Conuld, a wizard! We haven't had a Harukan wizard in...
PhyrahHalor, how long? The centers of arcane learning are closer to the center of the world, it would seem. Are you talented at illusions? A trader comes to Helatia every year or so, to collect rare spell components. The children love him and his illusions. He says he is from a city surrounded on all sides by great cliffs of falling water. Such a place is the center of the world!"
"Shadya, love, how could I forget you?" Hayder pulls Shadya in closer for a tight embrace. "You cannot understand the worry of a father, but with Sabil's daughter still missing... It concerns me, to see him so distressed. But please, you all must be exhausted from you journey. Let me take you to my house, I will provide rooms for you." He looks to Shadya for confirmation.
OOC: Also everybody, please respond to Hayder's questions. Imagine that the conversation takes place as you walk through the city, and that each conversation thread is self-contained. If you catch my meaning.

"It's not a problem. It's what I was hired ta do. As fer the behavior of your tribe...it ain't no different from the rest of the world. My skin is thick and I'm used ta the mean stares and frightened glances. If I could wipe away all the hate and bigotry from the world I would, but it ain't gonna happen so eventually blood flows until a temporary balance is found again." Kurgahz answers Hayder.Originally Posted by Rae ArdGaoth
"From what we heard in the desert, it sounds like it's tipped pretty hard away from the balance and against my kind lately..."

Shadya nods in confirmation, "I look forward to a nice room to shield us from the sun and wind, and a soft bed to sleep in."Originally Posted by Rae ArdGaoth
"Sabil's daughter is still gone? Perhaps I should have asked of her in the wetlands, but I thought not of it. How is Rais doing? I'm sure Rafiq and Amin have grown quite big in my absense. It might not be safe to tease them anymore... not that I would do such a thing Father."
