"Absolutely! Let's go!"
Dale stands up, straps his quarterstaff to his new baldric and begins to head outside with Ashe.   As he steps out of the inn, he takes a deep breath of freshly blooming wildflowers.   "Ahh, I love spring...
Dale walks with Ashe through town making small talk along the way, being careful to avoid any discussion that might lead to unwelcome topics like magic and wiardry.
As they make their way through Coryndar Fields, Dale makes sure to wave hello to Thurgin and company, exchanging brief pleasantries on his way to the brambles.

"I was born in LLewlyn.   My mother used to take me for walks on the beach nearly everyday.   She'd tell me tales of the sea.   My grandfather was the main characrter in nearly every tale...
He was a fisherman.   His ship was lost at sea during a terrible winter storm.   She always talked about him as if he was the greatest of seafaring heroes.    He was a devout follower of Istisha.   My mother made this necklace to remind her of him..." Dale picks up the seashell tied to a cord of leather around his neck and allows Ashe to look at it.

"After she died I moved to Kazbourne to search for my father...
After a while I gave up on him and decided to explore the world.   I aimed my feet down the road and I ended up in Threshold.

I have the curiosity of a cat.  I have to know everything I can about everything I see.   I have a great passion for history and I love to learn new things whenever I can.   I've heard of many lost ruins being discovered in this area and I can hardly believe that on my first full day in Threshold I have already discovered a temple thats been lost for many years!   Its truly exciting!

"So what's this talk about Zebulon and Istisha?"
Dale waves to Maccabeus and tells Ashe "That's Maccabeus the druid I told you about.  Watch out for his wolf.   Its REALLY BIG! He actually rides the thing like a horse!"

"Its just past Coryndar Fields.  Its not very far now."  Dale begins to walk faster toward the farm, hoping that the two druids might continue their conversation at the ring.   That way he can at least investigate around the ruins once again.   He reminds himself not to cast any spells around either of them.

"Just take a step back and watch the shards fly!"
Dale actualy takes more than a few steps back.   As he backs up, he positions himself behind a tall spruce tree and peers around the side of it to get a good view of Ashe's path of destruction.

"While I appreciate the beauty of this forest, I must admit that I would greatly appreciate a good road right now.   This mud might not ever come off of my boots!   Besides, I kind of lke chatting with the farmers at Coryndar Fields.   Thurgin is a great guy."
Dale wonders to himself as he gets his boot stuck in the swampy muck, "How the heck did I get into this?  What's wrong with a good road anyway?   Is there something wrong with taking the direct route?"  He abruptly snaps out of his muttering as a low hanging pine branch seemingly jumps out of the forest and rakes Dale accross the forehead.
"Oww!"
As they get to the crossing spot on the fogveil, Dale looks at the river and realizes it is much to wide to jump across and there's nothing for it, but to get his feet wet.  As he wades across, he feels the water come in over the top of his boots and his companions hear him grumble, "What's wrong with a nice bridge?"

"Well, I got my bath, whether I needed it or not!"  Dale tries really hard, not to let the jokes at his expense get to him.   How was he supposed to know that Ashe was going to make a bridge out of thin air?  
Besides, I am nothing if not bold.

Dale takes in the wondrous beauty of the trumpetblooms and smiles.   His work yesterday helped to create something profoundly beautiful.   A sense of satisfaction grows within him.   Something far more profound than anything he's ever known.   For the first time in his life, he starts to believe that good can flourish in the world.   Until now, everything good in his life has been snuffed out by greed and evil.   He is simply awestruck by the power of Mahiya.  
Without much thought, he follows Maccabeus' example and removes his boots.   He tells himself that he wants his boots to dry, but he knows that he, like Maccabeus, does not want to harm the beauty of this sanctuary.

Dale takes in the beauty of the ring and enjoys the tranquil harmony that is flourishing in the sacred glen.   As he is musing about important moments in his past, he hears Ashe speak to him as if from a great distance.   "Huh, Uh, what question was that Ashe?"

Dale looks at the wolf and sees the gore on his muzzle.   Instictively he moves away from the wolf.   As he's doing this, he notices Ashe and the wolf begin a staring match.   Not wanting to get in the way of any fur flying, Dale moves back even further...

Dale walks over to the pool.   In a very human way, he bends down, cups his hands together and takes many droughts from the invigorating water.   While drinking, he calms down about the wolf's grizzly appearance and begins to enjoy the day once again.

Dale listens to both Maccabeus and Ashe intently.   However, he tries to appear to not be very interested at all.   He looks at the stones as each one is pointed out and makes a mental note of each language.  

He also takes notice of all of the trumpet blooms and begins to wonder if they are hiding anything specific.   Before he moves on with the two druids, Dale tries to clear aside some of the vines covering what he imagines to be an ancient stone wall behind the blooms.   He takes great care not to harm the plants.   As he does this he asks the druids "Do the trumpet blooms have any special meaning for Mahiya?  Are they a special symbol?"

"I wasn't harming them.   I think there must be some type of wall behind them."

Dale moves on, not wanting to irritate two druids on their sacred ground.

"Oh....  Well I guess that's my city upbringing at work.
 
"Ya know Ashe, you're right.  I would love to learn those languages.   They certainly fascinate me.   Are they all related or will each one take a special effort to learn it?"


Players note:   I missed the post where Ashe invited us to learn the elemental languages.    Therefore, Dale is responding a tad late.
