“We do not seek to harm your home, we know of the importance of the tree and that you defend it fiercely. Truly there would be nothing better to guard it than the very spirits of the trees. We are sent by the Being in order to better ourselves and to learn our place.”

“We are at your mercy great one, but we do not want war with you.”
