Just as Viren leaves the Engineering Guild, Kalador and Omex come walking up.
"What are you two doing here?"
"We are here to trade in the gems."
"At the Engineering Guild?"
"Yah, it's the best game in town."
"I don't know if that is such a good idea. The dead gnome is his brother."
"Well them we better go find another game in town."
"Don't worry about it. So what if his brother is dead? We can still trade with him."
"Ok, since you are so sure. Let's go."
"What is it that you want, Kalador? My brother just passed on, so unless it is important, I am not interested."
"We are sorry about your brother. We were there with him."
The gnome simply looks toward the ground and does not respond.
"Your brother is a hero. He fought bravely, in battle, along our side."
The gnome nods. "That he is. He has always been the brave one in the family."
"His inspiration brought us to Northern Springs to finish the job."
The gnome shakes his head. "My brother is no leader. But he has always been the brave one." A bit of warmth and pride surfaces on the gnome's face. "Ok, what is it that you want, Kalador?"
"We have these gems here. How much are these worth?"
