Day following the battle with mermen (4/5)

When Arawn requests learning Dwarf Elder from Raddok, he replies, "I will be glad to help, but my knowledge of the tongue is a bit unpracticed as I haven't used it for a few years. I only spent several months among them, and my knowledge is limited pretty much to mining discussions we had, and the sharing of a few old tales. I have been refreshing my memory since I met Dorhak and Barbasa, which is good. I have not tried to teach it before, but you are welcome to whatever knowledge I have, since I believe you are respectful of the dwarven race. It would be good to have others to practice the language with. " [OOC: Raddok's current knowledge is EL20.]

  Dwarf Elder -

  [The day following the battle with the mermen Arawn will
 approach Raddok]

  "I realize we'll likely be encountering other
 dwarves soon, assuming we make it to where they're
 imprisoned. I figure that the more of us that are able speak
 with them the better. No pressure but would you be willing
 to allow me to learn the dwarven tongue
  from you?"   OOC: If the answer is, yes, then Arawn
 will cast Tongues to learn the language

 As Raddok
 saw the last of the mermen disappear, he came to a stop,
 startled at what Ix seemed to have done. It made him uneasy.
 But he tried to counter his doubts by giving credit where it
 was due, and after hesitating for a few moments,
  turned toward the blind (shaman, was she?)  and called to
 Ix, saying "Thanks." He nodded toward her although
 he didn't know if she'd be aware of it or not.

 He moved around the lockers to find that the seamen nearly
 had the fire out - it was the sails that had been on fire,
 and he could see them all laying out on the deck, still
 smouldering a little, and nearly soaking wet. "Quick
 thinking!" he called out to the
  seamen still sweeping water from a tipped barrel across the
 heavy canvases. He looked to see how he could help, but
 suddenly he became aware of his shield's weight upon his
 injured side, and carefully lowered it to the deck with both
 hands, biting his lip
  as he tried to keep a groan from escaping. He decided that
 he wasn't needed here, especially when Z'leyra
 called him over after seeing his bloodied side to have him
 get in line to be healed.

 Once Raddok's been healed, he will receive his watch
 assignment from Dorhak. He's pleased that both he and
 Ix, the new members to this band of adventurers, would be on
 watch with their Captain. This would provide Captain Dorhak,
 a chance to get to know his
  new team members better, so the two new members could work
 more effectively with the entire group; they would all also
 learn about each other's skills a bit more. Ix was a
 mystery to him, as they had spoken little more than to
 exchange hellos so far (the wolf
  being a discouraging factor, Raddok admitted to himself),
 and Dorhak, being the Captain, had been busy all over the
 ship, while Raddok, himself, had been busy learning
 seamanship under Z'leyra or whichever seaman she had
 assigned him to for that particular

 After being treated for his wound, Raddok helped, as allowed
 by Z'leyra, with ship's repairs, but was glad to
 rest and relax that evening over his supper. He reflected
 that these adventurers had skills he had never seen, and he
 felt a bit safer among them,
  and a challenge to try to live up to what they might need
 from him.

 A song began to rise above the sounds of the sea, and Raddok
 found himself caught up in the dwarves' song, catching
 enough of the words to hear the hope and dreams within the
 melancholy melody.

 It was a good evening overall, and he hoped he would sleep
 fairly well, once his watch was over. Being on first watch,
 he would be able to sleep the rest of the night
 uninterrupted - unless something else happened. He carefully
 finished cleaning his mace and
  shield, and lay his leather [OOC: or the quilted -
 whichever is cooler to wear - please inform me - thanks. If
 he has residual soreness from his healed wound, the quilted
 might be more comfortable to wear…] armor beside him,
 ready to don for his watch duty.
