A3 S1: To Gather Again
While Infantryman Ghuru and Nego were availing themselves of Kumahl's hospitality, Huruyan returned from the Temple of Chegarra with another infantryman.

Clan Accountant Grujung accepted the Proof of Services Rendered statuette from Kumahl for the completed contract.
He also mentioned that Huntsman Chodo of the Silver Kangal had left a message that Chodo urgently needed to talk to them.

"Kumahl, we really need to speak with someone about better clothing, what we are wearing doesn't reflect well on the clan when we meet with others.Accountant Grujung, would you be so kind  and tell us who we should speak with about clothing?"

"A messenger to Huntsman Chodo. Yes, yes that can be arranged."

"Begging your pardon but, I was meaning to speak to you about your appearance."
"It isn't appropriate for someone of your stature to look like they just washed ashore from a shipwreck."
"While that may have been true not long ago, it is no longer."
"From your recent successes it is clear that you are not just some random flotsam."

"I'm sure Major-Domo Runmaru can make arrangements for you to be more suitably clothed."
"I will discuss this with him right away."

Kumahl rejoins Huruyan, as he is speaking with Accountant Grujung. Over his back is slung the broken doorway rods wrapped securely in burlap and tied with a sling.

"Huruyan, are we to wait on Huntsman Chodo? If so, then we should send the Infantrymen back to the Temple, don't you think?"

"Absolutely, they have done their job." Turning to all of the infantrymen that had helped them and guided them Huruyan thanked them and released them to return to the temple.

In reply to Huruyan (msg # 7):

"Kumahl, you shouldn't be carrying things like that," pointing to the load on Kumahl's back. "It lowers your status and that of the clan. There are plenty of porters and the like for that. I know that we had to do things like that for ourselves back home, but here you must let others do their jobs, leaving us to do ours."

Pointing to his clothing and attire, Kumahl speaks very matter-of-factly "Who could tell what our station should be given the way we are dressed. Physical labor is good for the mind and the body. If that creates concern for you, then I will head back to the Temple of Thumis by myself. Until there is a real change in our status, I see no need to over burden anyone else."

In reply to Kumahl (msg # 9):

"Far from overburdening others, by allowing them to do their work we justify their jobs. As for our appearance and status, I am working on that! However there is no need to get upset and leave, if nothing else Chodo will soon be here to talk to us."

"Seems the only thing being validated here is slavery, poverty, and squalor. A man can not dream or become what he dreams of being, because his station will not allow it. Being a victim of circumstance is not a privilege."

"I am surprised that things continue to function in this city. The impoverished, destitute, distraught, and discarded, easily outnumber the opposition 10 to 1. Maybe I need a change of vocation."

"It is a heavy weight to bear the death of a friend, I could have lost you to the Chaskeri. More importantly, the deaths of those I didn't know. I mean the porters, did their jobs well, but seriously they risked their lives and for what, to set on the steps of a shrine and watch another man die? Our actions aren't enabling or empowering them, they are entitled. How can we continue to improve society, if that is the mentality we encourage?"

The Infantrymen stood around until Clan Accountant Grujung honored them for their service with a small tip.
Clan Accountant Grujung cast a disparaging look towards Huruyan and Kumahl while doing so.

In a small crowd of clan women, Clan Clothier Ninue (Third Wife of Major-Domo Runmaru) arrived with fabric samples and measuring tape.
Soon Huruyan and Kumahl were surrounded and their measurements recorded.
Many soft fabrics with basic patterns of primary colors were displayed.
Most of the fabrics contained shades of green in at least one part of the patterns.

Their old loin clothes of a rough durable fabric in a single faded color looked even more like rags in comparison.

As several women displayed the available cloth samples, "What would you gentlemen prefer?"

Glancing at your dirty feet and fingernails, Clothier Ninue said, "While your clothes are being made, we need to get you cleaned up."

"Do you have any accessories that you prefer?"

In reply to Clan Clothier Ninue (msg # 13):

"I will leave those things to the expert, you. Though come to think of it, I will need some kind of small pouch for tip change."

"As to color, a simple solid emerald green. The actual design I will draw and describe for you. You are more than talented, you are definitely gifted." as he says this he looks around to the better attired clansmen. "Your work speaks to your gifts."

Taking a piece of parchment from his pack and a charcoal pencil, Kumahl sketches britches and a vest. The britches have reinforced knees and pockets stitched to the front of the thighs and the outer sides of the thighs. The vest is likewise stitched with pockets on the front in two columns with two pockets each.

On the vests top left pocket is the symbol of the Emerald Fisher and on the top right pocket is the symbol of Thumis. "If you need me to purchase the gold and black thread to stitch the emblems, I can pay for it now."

"Thank you for noticing my humble work. I try to do my best for the clan."

"Distinguished Craftsman Kumahl, the clan has no problem supplying the needed materials for your unusual outfit."
"Its very uniqueness will further empathize your importance in the clan, as your successes have brought favorable attention to the clan."

"While Huruyan is getting a manicure and pedicure, we will review your special measurements and ensure that the shade of green chosen meets your requirements."

Huruyan was led to another platform, The Hall of Preparing for Audience, where he was surrounded by a multitude of servants.
They stripped him, washed him, applied scented oil, trimmed his hair then cleaned his toe and finger nails.

As the cleansing and prepping was finishing, some of the people that had accompanied Clan Clothier Ninue entered.

They were carrying a knee length tartan kilt of a light and dark green plaid fabric with thin red and white lines.
This they wrapped around him and over it, strapped around his waist, was placed a nice but plain flat chlen hide pouch.

Good quality emblems of clan and faith were sewn on the left side of the kilt with the pouch hanging on the right.

When Kumahl entered The Hall of Preparing for Audience, a distinguished gentleman in a multi-shade green kilt was already there, surrounded by servants of the clan.

When the man turned around, Kumahl was surprised to see that it was his brother, Huruyan.

Kumahl emitted a low whistle, "You clean up well brother."

"I will have to remember Clan Clothier Ninue, next time when I need some sewing and stitching done."
