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.
"Hey man, what gives? why you trying to harsh my mellow? I was getting into the groove, man, that was not cool."

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."

Balir takes a knee so he can look Fishbie in the eye.  "On another day, I will gladly share a brew and dance with you.  Unfortunately, we have a job to do, so my friends and I must work.  It seems you have somewhere to be as well.  I think we must take our leave from you for now.  After we are gone, I am sure the frost elf would gladly dance with you."  Balir stifles a smirk as he stands back up, and prepares to move on down the road.  "Well met Hussdor, and friends."

Balir nods in response to Fishbie's comment.  He had no problem relaxing for an time with a woodgrue, under the assumption his gold and belongings were safe.  That would of course be the trick...

"I think you should play a little nicer too. Using magic to force people to do things is extremely rude, not mallow. Inviting people to dance is nice, but forcing them, not so much. Good day folks."

Kirpich begins to lead folk down the road.

Balir will nod at Hussdor as a gesture of respect, and then follow Kirpich as well.

Syvanus heads out and gets ahead of the group and wagon to act as a scout.

With the fey folk behind you, the road stretches uneventfully ahead until nightfall, with little to see except for farmers tilling the soil and a few sheep.

Balir will assist with setting up camp and volunteer to take the middle watch again.  As he (probably) has the best night vision, and is something of the low man on the totem pole, it seems reasonable.

OOC By the way, I take it from mentions that Kirpich has a friendly earth elemental that has been accompanying us?

The elemental is a small one, about a yard tall, and looking like a stack of rocks in humanoid shape.

Occ: something like the one in Heavy Metal 2, as opposed to the one in GalaxyQuest

"My Elemental 'Chunky' goes where I go. He is a good friend of mine." Kirpich says, as he assists in setting up the campsite, moving earth as required, before creating some food out of the local vegetation.

Kirpich will volunteer for last, and suggest we keep a watch routine as last time, but with perhaps 5 shorter watches...

Syvanus > Balir > Dionysus > Snorri > Kirpich

Sound right to all as standard practice?

Balir is fine with this.
