The Enclave as a whole will go digging around to try and figure out where this army melted away to, but in the meantime, we need to get in touch with our representatives in the big city, and since we can't spare one of our delegates from the current operation, your arrival is fortuitous. I can give you a letter of recommendation which will put our 'Dhavian agents in a cooperative mood when you meet with them.""A matter of global importance and you look for a lone woman and, by association, us?" Robyn retorts. "Half the people we meet, Dumos, speak in riddles and portent and less in plain speech."
He sighs. "So what is it you would have Ana do, Shelterweight? Find these marauders or travel to Waterdeep to try to settle a matter of global importance?"
"You read far too much into my demeanor, ma'am. I regarded you with no more contempt than I would display toward any civilian."Ana returns to the circle at the end of that. "So first we're irresponsible sots whom you doubt are completely innocent and now you need us to do something important?" Ana says, looking a Shel expectantly, but deep down not expecting an apology.
