"I'm used to hiding a few things while moving through Shadowed lands, but I know that most of us aren't," Amethyst agreed ruefully.  "And... we could potentially pair Dunkin with Fedwyn as a couple of bodyguards, alongside 'my' human ones.  A little recolouring of the skin, and the like, and we could perhaps claim to have two dworgs with us.  Not that I have any experience in smuggling fey through.  I'm rather more accustomed to the 'so evidently inoffensive she can't be a threat' style of getting through check points and past patrols.  And I've never tried getting into a real city."

She cocked her head, then frowned thoughtfully.  "An option could be to present Siobhan as our actual courier, and me as her... factotum, as it were.  But that could potentially create as many problems as it solved.  In any case, the more we can avoid providing explanations, the better.  I can quite possibly bluff my way past most people without needing to provide clear details: there are quite enough factions within the clergy and associated organisations that dropping a few suitable hints might persuade the average guard not to pry further.  But sooner or later, we're going to be examined in detail, I fear.

Wendle continued to cross his arms frowning.

"I don't like it. It goes against everything I've ever been taught as a smuggler. Although..." he sighed. "You might actually just be able to pull it off. The lass Fedwyn has more in common with Orcs than Dwarves and she's been getting bigger to boot. Alright fine then. Dunkin, you've got some good points to make. You and Ivy'll get all of the loose gear we don't want to be anywhere near a city proper and if Fedwyn can't make it work, then we'll have to rethink our strategy.

We can talk more about his on our way."


With that, the Gnome and his companions began making their way westward.

Amethyst offered Wendle a worriedly grateful look, before turning away to round up her companions - with her now having a direct need to talk to every single person in the group, at least briefly, to try to discuss and sort out quite what they might best be suited to (individually and collectively) when it comes time to bluff their way past the Shadow's forces of oppression.

That did at least give her particular reason to spend time directly checking up on those closest to her heart, with Fedwyn and Siobhan top of that list.

Dunkin spent as much time away from the party as was possible during their trek.  Mostly he would scout ahead, lay traps and hunt with Eirik, or fall back well behind the group to cover their trail when possible.  Mostly, he wanted to be well away should they run into anyone, at least until Amethyst had figured out a disguise for him.

A Black Blood dwarf had worked well enough in the Kaladruns, but he doubted many were seen in these parts, and he would probably be killed long before he could even start laying out the ruse.  And passing as a dworg was just as unlikely given his coloring and build, but he would let Amethyst try.

So he kept his distance, to keep the others safe.
