    For every one hundred men you send us, Ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine of them are real fighters; We are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior. And he will bring the others back. - Heraclitus of Ephesus, 500 BC

    Janiven

    Janiven disappears from the dining room for a brief minute and returns with an oversized stein brimming with mead. "Happy to have some here for you." She says as she places the container in front of Anundr.

    "Well... let's get going on this dinner, I hope it's acceptable to all." She again disappears, this time into the kitchen and returns with a large tray with seven wooden bowels containing a nice mix of fresh greens. There is oil and vinegar on the table as well as salt and pepper.

    She places a salad bowel in front of each of you (save Liath), including the two empty spots, one of which you assume she will reside. She again leaves and returns with 3 small baskets filled with the same sweet bread you had before and a glass of wine. She places the bread at varies spots on the table and the red wine in front of her spot.

    She now sits and asks, "Suzume, since you've already let the cat out of the bag a bit about what you can contribute, would you mind leading us in a blessing of this food?"

    "Like all my people I am well versed in the use of bladed weapons. The blade is purely utilitarian. I am no entertainer despite what some might think. You have the look of one who has survived a scrape or too as well." He sweeps a hand over the others. "I am beginning to suspect that all this group has known trouble."

    Suzume then stands and nods to Janiven and bows his head hands clasped before him. "Oh divine host, we humbly beseech you to bless this food that it may nourish our bodies and bring us together in fellowship. We ask that you bless our hostess for preparing this food and for her bravery in bringing us together in this place to discuss the problems of our city. We ask that you bless us with equal measures of strength and wisdom that we might be a force for change and agents of good."

    In response to the big mans' appereance Trevor will says ' Lord i thought one of my brothers had been sent to fetch me home" "You can see why I am considred the runt of the litter, my brothers are his size" Smiling Trevor extends his hand "Greetings, I am Trevor and please dont crush the hand" Looking bewteen the misthaced pair it is easy to guess how Trevor's brothers must look, as both share the same hair color and eye color"

    When the blessing is said,. Trevor will just stand quietly by his chari.

    Leif, Tiko dress raises some innate feelings in you. It's probable she was a very attractive young woman. Time has not been incredibly kind to her but still she is by no means unattractive.

    Anundr gives a gruff nod of greeting to both Trevor and Dru, and with the blessing done he grabs up some of the sweet bread and begins to eat. It is obvious that wherever he comes from, proper table etiquette is not something that is regularly observed.

    The gray girl gives the newcomers bold looks from her chair at the table. She stands respectfully, head bowed, as the bird-man recites his prayer, and whispers "Until hope's end," as Suzumi falls silent. Completely unabashed, she takes her seat again and watches as the others start their meal.
