Vergo watched Amdir as she replied, and felt Torch's grip on him loosen.

"I am going in that direction." Amdir looked thoughtful for a moment before continuing. "Are you looking for a fellow traveler? This road has suddenly become a dangerous place, and even a stranger is probably better than those Orcs."

"I could use someone by my side in these forests, this was the first encounter with orcs since I first left the distant town, but if there were this many here, there are bound to be more," he answered, rubbing Torch's neck.

"We should loot these bodies, but first, I think an introduction would be advisable. My name is Vergo, talented bard with the flute, and I travel with my dear dragon, Torch. Who might you be?"
