Bal Themm chuckles a little when Deseri wears the hat. "Don't worry", she answers to Aleris' concern. "I didn't accept any donations from those in greater need. Those who chose to donate are well enough off, and were grateful for your assistance in securing the gate. Many in Wati are worried what this night will bring, and they're happy to reward those who put themselves in harm's way to protect them. So worry not -- consider it as salary for a job well done, if a donation seems too awkward."
“We are honored by your offerings,” Harmose says, reaching out to hold people’s hands. “Thank you. Would any like to work with us? There is so much that needs to be done. Organizing food and lodgings for those displaced. Taking care of the wounded. There is more than one way to fight monsters.”
"And that would really help the folks out here in the Grand Mausoleum, too," Aleris adds. "The more people that can help, the quicker they can tend to the injured and the sick instead of trying to worry about where to fit everyone and how to feed them!"
