Humanity. Why not gnomity, elfity? It sounds alien, haven't heard it, so it doesn't work, doesn't fit. Heard of humanity. Seen my fair share of it, good and bad. Mostly bad. Yeah. Badmanity. That fits.
Pent can only remember growing up on the road. It was a kindness that he had no memory of his parents' deaths at the hands of the very men who raised him. Whip, Chains, Gruel, Herder, Horsehigh, Goldgrab, Gringlib. He heard them use other names for each other, changing names, for changing cities. It was much easier calling them by what they were to Pent. None of them were anything but pain to Pent. Cept Gringlib, of course. He was the reason Pent still drew breath. Gringlib was the oldest of them all, well, old for a human. Old humans didn't hit as hard either. Pent liked to think it was by choice. Gringlib couldn't look soft around the others, so Pent still got cuffed, but the soft words came later, when end-of-day came. Gringlib saw something in Pent, so kept him. Fed him. Taught him. Called him 'my little investment'.
What words can do. They can open doors, carry weight, cement bonds. Words can make you look the other way. Words can cloud. Words can kill, too.
Gringlib was good at his job. Getting people to pay attention to their stock. Persuade buyers that theirs was the strongest, the most obedient, the quickest to learn. He had rhythms in his speak. He could bring the mood up when cynics speckled the crowd. He could chastise hecklers without insulting them. Pent enjoyed watching him work. Gringlib got his words from Pent, mostly, and that made Pent proud. It was Pent's job to talk with the stock, get to know them, make them less uncomfortable with their lot in life. Words soothed. Especially self-deprecating words. Gnomes couldn't fetch near the prices halflings or humans could. So valuable! So valued, so worthy! So wordy. Words weren't enough, so often. You had to teach them to smile, without them showing grins with teeth missing.
Words can reach to high places. Words of unrest reach the ears of tyrants, and voices are silenced. Words that form pleas for mercy reach the ears of gods, and powers are granted.
Pent saw many people come and go. The one thing that remained constant was the suffering. The road was uncomfortable, the food was unrecognizable, and the Whip was never tired. Pent only hoped that he could be for them what Gringlib was to him. A protector. A healer. Pent played at words, listened to himself saying them, apologized, rephrased the pleas, found the phrases. The prayers that felt right. It was then, when the powers came. He began to hear foreign tongues for the words he could understand. He could whisper soothing words from a distance away, and stop a cry in the night from turning into a scream. He could tend to a broken one after a beating, and stop them from slipping away. Pent grew strong in the ways of his goddess, ever grateful for her gifts.
Gringlib grew more grateful of his investment too. Pent could bring him information about the buyers' intent. Pent kept the stock healthy, hydrated. Pent began to take on Gringlib's job when Grin wasn't feeling well. Bringing understanding. Placing the stock in the hands of better buyers. Speaking words that would discourage abusive buyers from considering. It was what he could do. Especially the gnoll buyers. May the goddess burn them all.
Words become action.
Gringlib wasn't long for the world, and for all he could do within his power, he made sure that Pent found his way free of the caravan. A contract, words written into purpose, guaranteed the opportunity for Pent to use his powers for the might of mercenaries headed to Kelmarane. Pent was not happy to abandon Gringlib, but Gringlib had a way with words...
