For those who remained in the Village, Krusten's time away from you was just a minute.
Krusten takes the lead and presses the shop owner for a time and place of the ceremony. She says,
"Tonight of course in the center of the Village. Be there at sundown with thy robes on."
She then goes back to what she was doing as some of those purchasing goods watch you over as though you were out of your place.
At the next building you are surprised that the door opens before you can knock. A young man dressed in a red robe opens the door and addresses Thorin,
"Ah, ye have come to the right place my brother, will you join us as we prepare ourselves for the glory to be given?"
The others notice that he picks up on Thorin's red robes that he just bought. Inside there seems to be others who are dressed similar to the man who answers the door. You do not see any women inside.
Thorin looks at Krusten with a surprised face and then it turns to annoyance. He looks back at the man and smiles,
"Yes, I am here and need guidance as I have many questions and can't seem to get detailed answers."
The robed man stands back so Thorin can enter. He raises his hand to gesture him forward and in. As Thorin peers in he can see some instruction going on as six other men of varying ages are dressed in red.
