You say, 'Hail, Derek Wolfblood'
Derek Wolfblood says, 'Hello, _____. I hope all is well with you, for it is not so with many others. This new land is harsh and dangerous. For those that have come here just for adventure I have little sympathy about the dangers they face and the harm that befalls them. But there are many that have come here to help protect their homeland, and it is their plight that has brought me here. I have had little contact with Gnomes in my travels until now, for they have no love for the cold of my homeland. Now, however, I have learned to respect their devotion to each other and their craftiness, though I'm quite certain that I will never pass closer than necessary to one of their mad devices.'
