"I don't know about you, but I am parched. This is a brew I made last week, using morels and wild hops. Do you care to partake?"
He unslings a wineskin and extends it to you.

The bat faced woodgrue immediately prances over and extends a small wooden cup, apparently for its own use.

Kirpich will listen for a bit, before asking

Balir responds "Sure, Kirpich.  The important part is what he told me about the way west.  Hussdor said they only saw small hamlets.  He also mentioned wild men who live in the foothills of the mountains. The woods contain fairy creatures, along with hags and witches.

Now, I am going to try this brew to see how it tastes.  I have never had moss dwarf ale before."


Balir will share the ale with Hussdor.

OOC I'm assuming he'll have something in his "personal basics" for drinking.  If not, he may need to borrow a mug.

The ale is hearty and dark, and very frothy, like a sour, smoky stout.

The woodgrue pounds it back, and starts doing a frantic giggling dance.
Leandru rolls her eyes at this display.

Kirpich just watches in amusement, keeping an eye on all the odd characters...not just the dancing ones.

Balir enjoys the ale and makes small talk for as long as the rest of the group seems willing to loiter around.  He'll also share some of his ale, although sparingly - he will explain it has to last him for a long trip, although he won't elaborate even if asked.

Balir falls quiet at the question.  He isn't one of the leaders of their party, he's new and inexperienced when it comes to travel above the ground.  The question was for someone else to answer.  Instead of making his silence obvious, Balir quietly starts packing up his mug and aleskin, as he expects they will move on before long.

"This is a wondrous land, and a curious place to be sure. There are however, portals to faerie, some fixed, some seasonal, scattered about. Leandru has occasional duties at the winter court, and the passage we last took this way leads to a place not near her destination, so we seek other paths to faerie."

"Most of the gates I know are far to the south, near the sea, but one must pass through the cities of men before closing on the hinterlands.
There is one other way I know, in the city of Northport, there is a tavern called Hypathia's Hoofprints, with a faerie ring in the back garden."

The woodgrue has moved from dancing to playing. An irresistible urge is rising with the odd flutelike music, whi h is both haunting and frantic at once.
 Make will rolls to resist breaking into dance!
Any magic resistance counts.

"To invite is acceptable, but to compel dancing is outright rude. If you will finish that, we will be on our way."

He looks around to check prying hands are not too close to his companions.

Balir also frowns at the compulsion to dance. It seems impolite to him. Thankfully, he resists the urge, but in part circumstance helps with that. The tower shield and heavy mail make dancing quite inconvenient. I agree. That music is nice, but the compulsion is most unwelcome. Please, put away the flute.

The hautbois playing bat faced goblin seems caught under the sway of his own music, playing on
 and dancing himself as if compelled.
The satyr seems caught under his sway as well.  The Moss dwarf sways slightly, but you can see by the twitching of his tail that the grimalkin is just irritated, and the frost elf looks done with the entire situation.

Balir shakes his head at the inaction on the part of Fishbie.  The creature was of the Fey, so maybe this was a normal behavior.  He had no idea.  Regardless, it was bothersome, and he had asked politely.  Balir will hang his axe on his belt, and then approach Fishbie to gently knock the instrument away from his mouth.

"I mean no harm, but it seems Fishbie has been captured in his own thrall."

OOC I expect this to go badly, but...  I think this is what he would do.

as Balir pushes the delicate instrument from the woodgrue's lips, the creature frowns.

Balir nods in an understanding fashion.  "No offense intended.  Play music if you wish, but please do not compel us to dance.  We were having a nice conversation, and a nice brew.  I do not wish to dance in mail armor and a tower shield."
