Quoted from Player
(Dreaming.) “I’m sorry,” she said, trying to apologize to the rest of the ‘guests.’ She hoped the scream hadn’t waked Krak or Ike.

Elric, already having difficulty sleeping, is startled by the sound of Elena’s screams. He climbs to his feet slowly and steadies himself. Fatigue clings to him and his muscles ache, but he knows he’ll sleep better when he’s helped to assuage the pain of others…

He makes his way over to Elena’s side.

Brother Darme, to Elena
(Calmly.) It’s alright … it was only a bad dream. If you like, I have a spell that will quiet the fear. (Elric pauses.) Oh, you aren’t one of the villagers, are you?

Quoted from Player
“No, thank you, I’m fine.” She looked at her sword beside her. “I don’t think a spell will fix it.”

Elena smiled a little. “No, I’m not one of the villagers. I was with the rescue team who brought the kids back from the kobolds’ lair.”

Elric smiles and speaks with a soft, calm tone of voice.

Brother Darme, to Elena
I might point out that I only said I could quiet the fear, not put a stop to it. (Elric winks.) I think you’d be surprised. Either way, you’ve certainly proven that you’re capable of handling yourself, so I’ll let it be.

I’m sorry I hadn’t arrived in the village before you set out to rescue the children. I’d have been happy to lend my skills to your efforts.

Quoted from Player
Elena sighed and looked at the cleric. “What was your name again?” she asked and [extended] her hand to the man. “Mine is Elena. Elena Endari.”

Elric stands and gives her a curt bow.

Brother Darme, to Elena
Brother Elric Darme, you may call me Darme. I’m a wandering priest. I travel from village to village, setting right wrongs and really just trying to do the best I can to make the world a better place. (Elric smiles.) That’s all there is to it, really.

Anyway, I imagine I’ll stay here in this village as long as I’m needed before moving on to the next. I like to help, but I don’t want to cause anyone to become dependent on me. I like to think of myself as just a small extension of the greater will of Good.
