Nathros maintains a stoic demeanour, and concentrates on the task at hand. He retrieves his gear as the approaches the dock, and upon arrival quickly disembarks, thanking the boatmen, and waiting for his companions to assemble before deciding on a course of action.
It is a joyful thing indeed to hold intimate converse with a man after one’s own heart, chatting without reserve about things of interest or the fleeting topics of the world; but such, alas, are few and far between.
