Location: Haven on the Horizon, Caught in a Vise, A Decisive Blow
Haven on the Horizon
???: And these are the refugees you spoke of? So many Clawkin...
???: And you led them to us?
???: And as I've told you. Lady Mritha has yet to return from–
Srazhenie: L-Lady Mritha–
Srazhenie: At once, my lady!
Caught in a Vise
Srazhenie: Hmph. Lady Mritha and Odgne have shown themselves worthy of our respect...
Srazhenie: ...but your Vind have done nothing but bring us a rabble of clawkin.
Srazhenie: And in doing so brought the enemy closer to our walls!
Srazhenie: I... As guests of Lady Mritha, I will refrain from... being disrespectful.
Srazhenie: I will take my leave. Lady Mritha, the guests are in your care.
Srazhenie: That is the reality of the situation, then.
Srazhenie: Then we are caught in a vise. And it seems our wings are forced.
Srazhenie: Hmph. It seems as though we have no choice. The Rose would threaten us with dragons, while you would take responsibility for your actions. The choice is clear.
Srazhenie: We of the Haven will accept your support.
Srazhenie: However, with such paltry numbers, I have little confidence in our success in fighting this battle on two fronts.
Srazhenie: No, even with your aid, this may still be hopeless...
Srazhenie: <Character>. This young dragon is your... friend?
Srazhenie: The need for dragons to control and rule runs deep within them.
Srazhenie: That we have now seen another instance of dragon and person as friends is...
Srazhenie: Haha. Hahaha! I am ever amazed by the wonders that Lore brings.
Srazhenie: It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, <Dragon>.
Srazhenie: With such allies at our side, I think we might actually stand a chance! A small one, but let us prepare.
A Decisive Blow
???: Excuse me.
Srazhenie: I apologize if I'm interrupting.
Srazhenie: Thanks to you, Lady Mritha, the Vind, and yes, even the clawkin, Haven still stands.
Srazhenie: The dragons have scattered, and The Rose retreated.
Srazhenie: I come to offer my thanks.
Srazhenie: Regardless of your reasoning, it is by your blessings that we are still here today.
Srazhenie: It is... A tempting offer. But we dravir are a proud and independent people to a fault.
Srazhenie: Many, no, most of us, will be content with finding a new Haven, a new place to live.
Srazhenie: The dangers of a rebellion are far too well known to us.
Srazhenie: That said, we leave it to the individual dravir. I will let your invitation be known.
Srazhenie: Those that wish to join the Vind against The Rose shall be free to decide for themselves.
Srazhenie: Perhaps with time our peoples will be able to come together in peace. But not while the threat of The Rose and the dragons looms over us.
