"Thank you most gracious king, for your kind hospitality, and generous gift," Tazskan says.
"I'm keen to try out the fine Elvish wine of the high Forrest," He adds answering Lia.
He marvels at the large circular platform, and what it can do. He goes back up to the castle, to assist in bringing down, the princes body, the children and green dragon egg If required.
In addition he has a body wash, gives a command to his magical glamoured leather, and instantly, becomes dressed up like a Dragonborn aristocrat or noble.
Velon thinks for a moment. "Your Highness, what if Zarra came in disguise, only you and you alone knowing that she is a Drow? Unlike all of the other times she has had to hide herself, however, you could acknowledge her with a few private words, so that she knows a King thinks her worthy, even if all are not ready. I hope she would see this as a good thing, but I cannot be sure, as I have had a much easier road in this regard. I hope I do not ask too much of you with this, Your Highness. In the least, perhaps we will all have the chance in this life to share the story of the good Drow who helped fight this war, when the time is right."
Velon is also very impressed and appreciative of the King's other gift, the platform that will make their trips to and from the castle much easier!
Out of Character: . I guess we can stop ignoring the logistical issues there, now! ;).
Penelope goes with the others on a test run of the new platform to show it to Lawrance and the rest of the crew at the castle, "Isn't this thing great? Now we don't have to ferry people with Lia's broom or do weird feather fall shenanigans! I don't even have to fly!"
"Also guys, we are delivering the grandegg to the King and he is going to hopefully raise it with ancient Elven monk techniques to cultivate patience and wisdom so it hopefully won't grow up and murder us all. More importantly, after we are done delivering the corpse, the egg, and the children, we are invited to a celebratory feast for the defeat of Chuth! There's going to be fine wine and good food and I'll probably play music! Zarra, we got permission for you to come too. The King is cool with it but we should probably disguise you with some makeup to make you look lighter just so we don't spook the racist elves. Lia, I need your help with this. Bring your disguise kit and we will all go to my room to get Zarra ready."

Once hearing of all the events that took place in the King's hall, and boiling down Perry's perky idioms and expostulations into the actual events, Lawrance nods in satisfaction. "It's good that he will take this child as his own. Silas was unsure about adding it's raising to their already heavy burdens with the blue dragon hybrids they are dealing with. A single offspring - with the help of the dragons of Good - will be well within a King's resources. Silas has offered their experienced advice to this purpose. I'm curious to see how this turns out in a few years."
"I've already prepared the Prince's body for transport and we can gather up the children on this excellent platform we've been gifted, right away. We should also bring the bodies of those unfortunates who died at her clutches, for proper ceremony."
With that, Lawrance gets the ghost-horse drawn wagon onto the platform, has a second wagon loaded and with the covered, few, small bodies of the unlucky ones and sends the staff out to gather the Elven children from the mess hall and where ever else they've been. Retrieving the egg himself, he wraps it in well heated cloth, tenderly cradling it on the trip downwards and into the Tree.
Upon presenting the egg to the King (Or whomever takes it), he says "Sire, I am Lawrance Smithson, wizard. With my companion's help, we rescued this innocent from the belly of the mother, Oghma's blessing that it survived to be presented to you, it's grandsire. I offer as well to your mages the methods of contacting ones who will help you in any way they can to aid you and yours in the raising of it. I wish you the best of success in guiding your grandchild in the paths of good and right. May he or she be a blessing on your house, your Kingdom and the world. I do ask that I may sometimes be permitted to inquire as to your progress, as I have a curiosity of this little one's destiny."
At the party, Lawrance finally is able to relax, relieved of the burden on his conscience that the egg presented. Sampling as many unique dishes as possible, he moderates his imbibing of the strong spirits to fully enjoy the evening.
Out of Character: - I've been waiting SO long to post something *smile*.
