You say (in common), 'You what?'.

> l Gwyrdain
Before you is a seasoned adventurer of medium build, hunched over a
scroll. His hair is a reddish brown some graying over the ears. After a
moment, sensing your glance, he rises to a full height of a little over
six feet, and turns to face you. Now that you have a clear view, you
recognize the signs of a lifetime of struggle in his unhandsome, weathered
face. His wearied, grey eyes particularly inform you that if this man
ever new love or joy -- those days are now long forgotten. The remaining
features of this face give him the distinct look of one from the Far West.
For what possible purpose could he have traveled so far? Before you can
follow this line of thinking, he speaks.

Gwyrdain says (in common), 'Have you heard tell of the only true God? His name is Lord Nash...'.

Gwyrdain is in perfect health.

Gwyrdain cants 'I am inquiring after one especially skilled in concealment and prose'.

Gwyrdain says (in common), 'caution, child.'.

Gwyrdain says (in common), 'Words are the counters of wise men.'.
Gwyrdain says (in common), 'and the money of fools'.
