It wasn't long before idle chatter regarding wine, women, and fighting, turned into jokes about the dwarf's conduct during the ride on the phase train.

"You were as scared as I were, " Seanessy claimed.

"Worried, for certain, but scared? I am a mountain elf, and we are brave in the face of danger."
