    "This land is too friendly with the sun" I say as I dash towards the tor.

    Wait, giant. Before we get too far I have my raven, Diaval that has been circulating the area. Let me see if there Is a chance he has seen anything helpful.

    I notice that she avoided my question, so I feel she is hiding more than she is letting on. I let it go for the moment, but keep it on the backburner. "The name was given to me from my late mother. It's short and sweet. Easy for you to remember", as I say with a soft smile.

    In an attempt to calm Taryn, "I'm sure the half-elf is jumping to conclusions, but if there are any enemies around, they will not be a problem with me around" looking with confidence toward Taryn. (Persuasion 19)

    I stop dead in my tracks and turn slowly. I walk over to the Drow Elf, bend down and get my face inches away from her's. My brow furled and a frown on my face. "I AM NO FUCKING GIANT! I AM TOLR'AX SKULLCRUSHER OF CLAN OGOTH-ELANOK! WE GOLIATHS HUNT GIANTS!" I stand up and collect myself, staring into the sky looking for the Raven and in a calm voice, "Use your bird Raven Keeper. I need to get out of this place, you small ones live in strange places." I walk over to where I smashed the barrel and pick up anther pickle and take a bite. "But your food is good" I smile showing sand and pickle bits stuck in my teeth.

    "Hey there my tall friend", I speak with a welcoming tone walking towards the Goliath. "You seem like a interesting fellow. The names Dook." I reach down for 3 pickles. Two for Taryn and Oridrys and one for myself. Wiping off the sand before handing over the food. "Any place you can see that could be advantageous with our predicament?"

    My apologies. No need for the brutal yelling, its already too hot and bright for that. However, in comparison to my size, most others are "giants" to me.

    Dook, is it? If you would be patient enough to wait my raven is on his way down and I shall ask him if there are any dwellings or places for cover nearby.

    I look in admiration at the Drow elf as she talks to the goliath. "That it is, my dark mistress. May I inquire your name? Also, some clothes? I don't think that sail around you will be beneficial on our soon to be trek."

    "I know not of this place. All I see are hills and beach" I point to the tor. "That is the only place I see to get a better view of this forsaken place." "Unless the Raven Keeper's bird can speak to her." I chomp down on another pickle.

    I appriciate your concern Dook, but my armor suits me as well as anyone else's. But, if I do not find protection from this sunlight soon, this sail is the only thing that is keeping my head and eyes from becoming blind or burned.

    I walk to the rest of the group. "Forgive my tardiness. A'mryl I am happy to see you safe my friend" to the others "I am Loleela Ephrenia Jopel Timberly. But you may call me Olo. I took the time to be sure my precious instruments were well. I agree with the large oaf that we should move from this beach quickly"

    Olo, Diaval is decending. He will possibly be able to communicate with me if he has seen any hospitable coverage for us.

    I look at Olo with disdain. "You think me oafish? I am on a quest of knowledge for my people, they struggle with surviving our mountainous homeland." I look to the ground sullenly. "I seek the knowledge to help them survive. The orcs attack us with great numbers, and we are few, but strong. They are never ending."

    I feel for the compassion that the goliath has for his people. "If you say they are strong, they will survive until you return with the knowledge you seek. I knew a goliath on my past travels, wanted nothing but death in his wake and skulls to collect for his pride, but with you, I see you have changed my perspective. You seek something more valuable."

    I formally bow to the bard. "A pleasure to meet you. Dook Agalian is my name."

    Goliath, what is your given name? I understand what it means to be judged upon appearance. I know the sun is hot but let us not allow that to heat tempers between us.

    "Tolr'ax is my birth name, I was given the name Skullcrusher by the former chieftain Orilo Heart-stopper when I killed 20 Orcs with only my hands." I smile victoriously. "Raven Keeper, I harbor no ill will towards you. Your raven is most helpful to us." I look up and wonder how much longer it will take to descend.

    "My apologies Tolr'ax. I mean no offense to your situation. In fact I look forward to hearing more about your homeland. Dook it is a pleasure to meet you as well. I look forward to the opportunity of entertaining you all with the stories I have collected in my travels." While we're waiting for the raven I inquire again whether any survivors know what happened

    "Some kind of attack on the ship, stab wounds in the crew show sloppy blade work, but intent to kill no less. Besides that it seems the events happened so quickly it left everyone disoriented."

    Through whatever nonmagical familiarity you've obtained over your time with this creature, you make yourself somewhat understood to the raven. You get a vague impression that it, at least, prefers it's chances on the beach, rather than the interior.

    Taryn is unimpressed.
