I don't think he is planning a double-cross but if they are caught with a Racconan and an Elf and this puts his family in jeopardy, he would do what what was necessary to protect his family... :o

and you'd be surprized how good a grip young'ns can have

Well, this answers one question:

Where are all of Quentyn's trade goods? In that backpack?

He's no artificer... but still, he can make magical trade goods on the fly wherever he goes. (Nicely set up in the Royals episode ages ago, where we saw him making a wackadu from a piece of wood. And didn't he make the poppers he used in the rotten tomatoes, too?)

No, I think that he already had the poppers. About the trading's goods, most of them must be still in his boat. I suppose that since he rent the parking, he will probably explore for find the location of the artefacts. Once he find some artefact that he can buy with what he have in his backpack or too heavy to transport on long distance, he will have simply to return to his ship, navigates until the location and starts to negociate. No need to attract too much attention too soon.

I think Quentyn is trying to find the old trading post because it most likely has a place where he can tie down the Luftship and hence he keeps all his trade-goods in the ship, with the little faeries guarding it

I'm not so sure about that. These weren't the usual "drop in water" poppers, they had some special time-delay characteristics.

Quentyn of Freeman Downs in his journal wrote:You know, poppers are a lot more versatile than people think. Not all of them just explode in water. It all depends on what sort of outer layer of primer they have. F'rinstance, you can make them with a lux-sensitive coating that acts like a five-second long delay fuse.


Sounds like these weren't off-the-shelf to me.

Well the farmer and his wife HAVE to notice that despite the amount of "abuse" Marsha's inflicted on Quentyn, he's shown nothing but patience, understanding and now he makes her an "enchanted" gift. Albeit it's more out of his desire to keep his tail from being "twisted clean off" by the rabunctious toddler.

Still, he's shown no ill will, no innate cruelty and has repeately referred to her as 'Sweetie' and now 'Sweet pea'.....they can't ignore this total contradiction to what the "old stories" have said.

Now as long as Sam behaves herself................

The mother is bound not to trust the pitty lights to remain harmless. She probably thinks they'll eventually turn her daughter into a bog dragon or something.

Then again, if she throws the gift out, she'll have to find something else to keep those little hands from exhausting Quentyn's patience.

If they are smart, they will realize that Quentyn can still hurt them. He levitated a bowl of buns (only part way, but still) at a distance. What if he "reached" inside someone's heart or brain and squeezed?

2 points.....we need to see if Quentyn's going to explain what the lux sprites are and that they're harmless.

I don't think Greta would throw it out for fear of offending Quentyn to where he might actually (only in her mind BTW) harm Marsha. It seems that the farmer actually has a bit of a better grasp on the situation.

The way he wrote "I don't think Sam ever forgave me" implies that first, this is being written quite a bit later and second, that Sam becomes a long term friend.

This isn't the first time that he seem have writed quite a bit later. I personnatly don't see him transport his journal out of his boat. He probably leaves it here and write when he comes back. Afterall, this isn't a diary where you write what happen in the day. It's a authentical questor's journal where he write what happen in his job. He way to have a prepared defence if he messes up again.

S'il revient un jour chez lui ça pourrait lui être utile.

Oh yes, a well-prepared defense indeed... :roll: which, unfortunately, will only hold up in a Rac Conan court. All others have their own laws and customs, and his defense might not hold up in them.

Case in point... if the local Baron is the Law, Quentyn will have a bit of trouble trying to get out of jail if he offends his Odiousness. :wink: Not that he couldn't get help from someone to break out, but staying out of legal trouble will be much more difficult...
I'm lost. I've gone to find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait. Thanks.

*blinks* Wrong thread? I'm sorry, which one was I supposed to be in?

:-? I thought my reply was just fine, and now I'm getting told to move. What'd I do?

Sorry, shouldn't post so late. I missed the part of the previous post that mentioned "defense", and so missed any connecton between your post and the rest of the thread. My apologies; my mistake entirely.

Yours contritely,

I can imagine the scene in the Dule's gaol:

Quentyn, later, in his journal, wrote:I kenned the cell door. No wards. Just a simple mechanical latch barely sufficient to contain an infant.

Or the hopelessly lux blind.
