You arrive at the house where Grolik is staying. You soon find out that this is the house of Armivor. You also find out that he has been adventuring in these parts for more than 10 years and has successfully led 3 expeditions into the Expanse.
A local servant answers the door and you are led back to a pretty courtyard. Grolik is there. He is wearing a suit of hide armor that appears to have been crafted for himand is sparring with a man wielding no weapons. They slowly appear to be looking for weaknesses in each other defenses when Grolik attempts a quick attack. The man deftly paries the blow and places a muted jab on him. When they notice you they both stop and Grolik rushes over to greet you.
He places his hand on your shoulder and kneels down so you are face to face...he also appears to have bathed.
Anton! It is good to see you! I was beginning to worrry that you werre avoiding me. The pathfinderrs have been verry kind to me. They have taught me how to wearr what you call Arrmorr. In exchange I have been sparrring with varrious memberrs of theirr grrroup, teaching them to defend themselves against prredatorrs. We have been to the jungle werre I have hunted them and played what they call...warr games. It has been fun and interresting.
They have also been teaching me how speak prrop..perr..ly and I have been learrning about the worrld. What have you been doing?
When you ask him about predators he looks at you surprised, You mean in the city? I have seen some caged but nothing frree. I would think that would cause a lot of...panic with the humans herre. No, why do you ask? he gets a expression of thought on his face.
Does this have something to do with me?
