"Wait, thought it was my role to play the fool? Perhaps it only used to be. I for one never believed you to be dumb, Poljen. Your instincts in battle are too good. You'll have to try harder. Perhaps your new best friend Perry can teach you more on acting! Ha!"
"... But yes, thank you both. I do need support in leading. In fact, as Lia said, everyone probably needs jobs to spread the burden in one way or another or I will surely make more mistakes along the way. With that, Lia is going to take charge of vetting newcomers with her truth spell and keeping an eye on them. I've encouraged her to rely on the rest of us for help, of course, including the two of us and one such as Nikolaos. Poppo and Lawrance have really taken to the navigation of the castle and magical defenses. Taz seems quite interested in martial defense of the castle with the ballistas. Perhaps he and Cratol can train any new recruits for such purposes. Nikolaos seems well suited for information gathering, especially in towns we visit. I'd ideally like everyone to choose their job themselves, something they are enthusiastic about and thus good at. Perhaps we should ask Zarra and eventually Perry about what type of jobs they would like."
"Most importantly, since we are all here and it has been mentioned, I'd like to talk about some of our recent concerns during our missions. Poljen you had concerns that I believe I share, and asked Lora to tell me about some and Lia to inquire with me upon her return as well. Despite that I have not actually heard your thoughts on the matter. I assume they are about less than tactically sound methods being used, and whether the healing abilities of the group are being put to the best use." Velon turns to Lia and elaborates a bit on the last point. "Before we fought the white dragon I tried to convince the group to do all they can to help Poljen keep the dragon occupied, and in turn we heal Poljen as much as possible as he seems to be able to take twice the punishment of any other man or woman I have met. Some agreed, some did not, but in the end the battle was a real mess. A dragon is unpredictable, to be sure, but Poljen received very little in the way of divine aid because others were in danger and near death so often, some of which I feel could have been avoided."
"What do you say, Poljen? Am I on the right track?"
