>Heriv says, "He was left here to gather information on the people here and such"

'Which wars?You ask, "Which wars?"

Xantana says, "we have a fairly good idea what it may be...but we do not wish to tell anyone because of the sensitivity of this matter".

You bow to Kalika.

Kalika asks, "Yes?"

Heriv says, "i did odd jobs for him"

Kalika nods to you.

Heriv says, "It seems my love for coin has been my undoing."

Heriv sighs.

Kalika rolls her eyes.

Kalika says, "Typical."

Kalika asks, "What do you want me to do about it?"

Heriv says, "I have come to tell you what I know and to seek protection from Takliek."

Kalika gazes at Heriv.

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

Kalika asks, "Tell me what you know...?"

Heriv says, "I have overstepped myself now it seems."

Ralttom says, "He is a powerful ranger, Heriv"

Heriv says, "I...."

Kalika squints at Heriv.

Heriv says, "Overheard him and a few of his contacts talking one night..."

Heriv says, "They did not know I was around..."

Heriv says, "he has brought a forbidden skill to this land..."

Heriv says, "Very deadly"

Kalika narrows her eyes.

Heriv says, "The 5 know of it, you included."

Heriv says, "It is called sniping."

Kalika glares at Heriv.

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

Ralttom blinks.

Heriv says, "He has shown it to sevreal of his contacts."

Heriv says, "They now spread the word"

Heriv nods.

Kalika says, "We will not speak of that here."

Heriv says, "But great Mistress."

Kalika says, "No, get out."

Heriv says, "He is terribluy mad."

Kalika says, "You have brought this upon yourself, "humble" trader."

Heriv exclaims, "I ask protection from you!"

Heriv bows to Kalika and begins groveling! With a quivering voice, Heriv begs Kalika to show mercy and kindness for his inexcusable actions!

Kalika folds her arms across her chest.

Ralttom says, "Kalika"

Kalika gazes at Ralttom.

You say, "Kalika"

Heriv exclaims, "Kind lady, please reconsider!"

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

Kalika glances at Heriv.

You say, "I do think we as rangers should hear em out"

Kalika says, "He speaks of things he should not know."

Heriv sighs.

You ask, "why should we not know of things?"

Heriv says, "i but overheard it madam."

You say, "ingnorance is never wise"

Kalika says, "I am bound to protect the rest of you, and to harbor this trader would not be in the best interests of the guild."

Heriv frets.

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

Heriv says, "Mistress, i humble request you reconsider. Takliek will kill me for sure."

You say, "tis true Heriv"

You say, "greed is a terrible thing"

Kalika says, "Indeed, greed is a terrible thing."

Heriv sighs.

Kalika says, "And such is the result of his choices."

Kalika says, "It sounds to me more like he is just scared."

You say, "very true"

You say, "rangers are a powerful guild"

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

You say, "and should be... respected"

Kalika nods to you.

Heriv says, "Mistress Kalika, Iknow that this is a strange request and I do not blame you for shunning me after what I have done."

Kalika says, "Not some nursemaid to someone who has already sold out."

Heriv says, "It took nerve for me to come to you like this. I have no choice in the matter now. My life is foreit"

Kalika asks, "Why not turn to your own guild?"

Heriv says, "becasue great one. This concerns the rangers and the shadow guild."

Kalika glances at Heriv.

Heriv says, "I cannot seek the thieves of this town."

Kalika asks, "Is there any other guilds you wish to involve in this?"

>You ask, "theives?"

Heriv says, "Some work for him."

Kalika folds her arms across her chest.

Heriv says, "The only two guilds this skill involves now are the rangers and the thieves, Mistress."

Kalika glances at Heriv.

Heriv says, "Takliek has vowed to destry all who have heard of this knowledge I have just told you."

Heriv says, "I fear he is not far behind me."

Kalika says, "So that would mean you have brought that upon the rest of us here."

Heriv says, "yes madam, I fear I have done that."

Dregonard asks, "i came late for this knowledge what knowledge be it that may cost us our lives?"

Kalika glances at Dregonard.

Kalika says, "It might be best you do not know."

Heriv says, "I know that the five have outlawed the knowledge of sniping in this land."

Heriv says, "I am sorry for tell ing others of it."

Kalika exclaims, "And yet you bring it here!"

You ask, "Kalika might I ask why sniping has been banned from your teaching to us?"

Kalika says, "I cannot tell you some things, Falkonis, for your own good."

You say, "understood M'lady"

Heriv says, "Please madam, shelter me this once, I have learned my lesson"

Kalika says, "Heriv, I believe I have said what I needed to say. Begone now."

A tear runs down Heriv's face.

With a flick of his wrist, Heriv bows towards Kalika, his eyes never leaving her, a captivating smile on his face as he regards her with poise and unrivaled dignity.

Kalika says, "You brought this upon yourself. Remember that."

Heriv says, "As you wish madam, I am truly sorry."

Heriv just went out.

Kalika nods to you.

Kalika says, "You must do as you must."

Kalika says, "As must I."

alika says, "I have to ponder this. I must speak to the other 4."

Kalika nods to you all.

Guildmaster Kalika just went out.
