"Kiitani, you know how the studious ones are. They take way too much time to figure these things out and more die than necessary. If we can cure him and stop it from spreading, that should be the priority." Melinda appears a bit upset with you seemingly siding with Argus, but turns her attention to Thurmond.
"Ah yes Kiitani, the Sharpeye family has provided plenty of game and furs for our village. It's a shame to hear that you've been affected so harshly." Thurmond starts to make his way down the stairs and walks up to Arthur, stretching a hand out for him to shake. "A sellsword eh? Well we appreciate you offering to help. What happened to your package? It seems odd you'd stop here while on a delivery." Thurmond then turns to Akala "A a being from the feywild. Isn't that place a fantasy? A bedtime story for children, or to scare children? Interesting indeed. Orvar you can go ahead and reveal yourself."
As Thurmond says this, the other man standing there that looked eerily similar changes his shape until a changeling was left. They give a nod to Thurmond before heading to the bar without speaking. "Kiitani, I don't believe you've met Orvar before, at least not in their true form. They've been... helping me during my leadership here. They're the reason I know so much of the things going on here in the village, and occasionally outside of the village." Thurmond walks over to the door to hall and locks it. "I need you all to keep what I've just told you and everything else I'm about to say a secret, understood?"
