"No my friend, I can think of no better message at the moment. Perhaps I will get up the courage to speak to him myself...although the chances of an answer I can grasp the true meaning of is remote at best." Nuall chuckles. "Always a pleasure my friend. Until this evening."

After Quin departs, Nuall will turn to Odin. "And just what do you think might be planned for tomorrow?"

"I think it's some kind of sporting event. Orcs, dwarves and Amberites." Odin ponders slowly. "I doubt it will be a proper arena, but perhaps that's a good thing."

"I suppose it's time we head to the ball.Before we go, I am curious... Most of the people I've met here are locked into one form, even if another would be better for what they are doing. Is there a reason for that?"

"Hmmm...well I'm not familiar with dwarves, but in my experience orcs do not fare well against Amberites. Perhaps if the Amberite was unarmed and greatly outnumbered..."

"...and why are we locked into one form? I dare say that it has never occurred to me to ask that question before. For me it has always been the way things are. It is only recently that I met someone who could change form. If I had to guess, and mind you it would only be a guess, I would suspect that it is a part of the Pattern. Perhaps it creates order, and fixed shapes are part of that order. ...but our bodies do change over time, we grow and we age. If it is order, it is not absolute. Maybe we can change forms but we just have failed to learn how it is done. I am not sure that I am fond of the idea, but it is something to ponder. No doubt I can find someone else to share their insights on the subject with me."

"Well my Lord, I thank you for the conversation. It has been...thought provoking. Perhaps we can talk more some time when I have more insight to add."

Odin blinks and nods. His eye flickering to an odd shade for a moment. "That's... Unexpected. Yes. I will most certainly see you at the ball." He calls over an attendant to get out of the tub and be toweled off. "Perhaps I can find someone else to talk so before the ball. I don't think I need an escort."

"I do believe that most know that you are a 'colleague' of Dworkin's, so I doubt any will try to prevent you from attending. At least in that regard you will not need an escort. I do not know the way myself, so I certainly will need one. Perhaps you will attend and I will end up elsewhere by mistake." Nuall laughs.

"Again, my thanks. I hope you enjoy the ball."

(OOC: Looks like you're ready to head to the Underwater Ball. As for directions, getting them is a trivial matter of asking a guard or wherever you get your clothing from, or anyone at the castle, etc...)

Nuall gets out of the bath and dries off. He gets dressed in an outfit that looks something like this. The major differences being that he's blonde, left the weapons and gloves at home, the boots are a highly-polished black, the jackets is a deep forest green, and the pants and shirt are a pale yellow. So okay, he doesn't look that much like the pic, but it makes the point. LOL

When he gets down to the docks he will hail a guard and issue a few quick orders and then continue on his way to the ball.
