Fenric frowns. "Are we to retreat below, or work to set some terms. Without guild pins, they will not hear us, and I don't know if we should all pay the iron price for them like Rafik did."

Hrunting fingers his spiked mace, but nods in agreement.
"Angrid asked that I help work on the treaty with these surface folk, to improve trade, and not just with that shifty orc. He might be the first, biut with him alone I cannot see our people getting a fair price at all times. If my brother in law to be here can get a house that has a cellar close to the shaftway, then we can get somewhere. I cannot see Svetlana going through this place every time she wants to visit. It is too brightly lit for my tastes."

Re: Consulting a sage
Ulo just nods but keeps silent until she feels they have walked far enough away from the sage's office as to not be easily overheard.

In Trollish:
"Hrunting, you and Fenric are Angrid's.  You should do as she thinks is best.  To that end, if she wanted you here to help keep her alliance, then you should take a badge.  But do so in a way that will not jeopardize the alliance.  I suspect Rafik's method would be inappropriate for this.  As for myself and Rafik, we are not Angrid's."  She turns and addresses Rafik, "You are Unburnt.  Your tribe is dead.  Only you and I remain.  I give you leave to make your own choices.  Join Angrid's tribe, stay here and seek your vengeance, or stay with me.  I must return to Angrid, to report what I have learned, and to speak with those elders of our tribe that have taken her hospitality and seek to join hers.  Do they still need revenge?  Do they need something else?  I... I do not know.  But i must see to their needs before I leave them to tend to my own"

"Let me take the badge and escort you back. I think you are eldest amongst your tribe, excepting for üks käsi, that old smith who burnt his arm away. Hrunting has business with Stark, buying cloth and looking for a house that keeps out the sun. Have you ever seen it? I hear it is bright."

"Yes, before going back to the warrens, I think I will go see this 'sun' for myself."

Ulo will begin looking for an exit or portal to the outside.

A scruffy thickset human in a plaid skirt and floppy hat, a knobbery by his side gives you the eye as you head for the door.

Re: Consulting a sage
Ignoring him (he's obviously speaking to Rafik), Ulo peeks outside to see what this 'sun' is all about.

She recoils in pain. "Owww!  It is like this all the time?"

"Ehhhh.  How does anyone put up with it?  Though... it stays light like this half the day?  Might make crop growing easier."

Squinting she turns to head back in, "Meh, I've had enough of it."

She looks at Aemon with a measure of annoyance, "Not today.  Maybe not ever."

And moves to head back down.

"I have spoken to the recruiter DuClair paid. She, and the guild, did not know of us and thought we were all the hiiglased, eaters of men. She told me the guild just matches mercenaries with those who pay. I still plot her death, but it does not seem this place even knew anything of us. They get me work to kill men for pay, and I hear others get paid to fight surnud kõndimine."

"It's best we confine revenge to the blue-hair witch for now.  I will see if Angrid needs more of me.  If not I will come back.  Maybe to join this 'guild'.  Maybe not."

Ulo begins to make her way back down to the gate below.

A couple of humans are approaching. One seems to have inferior equipment and seems to be the others thrall. The well dressed one looks at you curiously.  Rafik frowns at him

I get that. I was hoping she could engage in a little surface action. In the mean time, while Rafik has been talking up murder, You are being approached by Broderick Liebert and Carruthers. If you want to deal with them, then post in Also at the Dismal Tower. If you think Ulo needs the comfort of the dark, then return to Angrid.

The more he got out and about the more odd things he'd encounter, moving a little closer to the group of Trolls he held up a hand in sign of Parley. Greetings Great Ones, You appear to be in need of assistance. He prompted
