You see a dashing, slender man, stylishly dressed, with a lot of flair.
How may I help thee, ? Sentri asks.
Thou dost not remember me? I am Sentri! We have gone adventuring together in the past!
When I am not adventuring with old friends, I am a trainer in Britain. I specialize in combat involving swordsmanship. I am quite good at that, as thou dost remember.
But I would drop everything to join thy group if thou art not too encumbered.
I do not see our old friends Iolo, Shamino, or Dupre much.
Sentri draws his sword so quickly it is like a flash of lightning. He does a few fancy moves, slashing the air with the blade. No foe shall stand after I am finished with him!
Sentri bows. I am very pleased to join thy group.
I like small crowds, Avatar. Thou art travelling with a group too large for my tastes. If thou shouldst lose someone along the way, return and I shall be happy to join thee.
Dost thou want me to wait here or go home?
Very good. I shall wait here until thou dost return.*
Farewell, . If thou dost need my services again, I shall be only too happy to comply.*
I am becoming weary of the place. It is having growth pains of which the bourgeoisie are unaware. All is not as serene as the noblemen present it.
Well, for example, try going to one of the smaller towns, say, Paws. It is a poor man's place. It reeks, too. And 'tis only just beyond the Britain town limits. More money should be put into improving the land as a whole, not just in building new buildings in the capitol city. I do not know what Lord British is thinking!
My fee is 30 gold for a training session. Is this all right?
Then I shall rob someone else! Sentri laughs aloud.
I am afraid I must adhere to my policy of training only during my business hours. This applies to -all- of my friends.
Since I am a member of thy group, I shall train thee for free!
How art thou, friend? Thou dost look like thou couldst use a little training thyself!*
What is this? Everyone doth make fun of my physique!*
I am not making fun, Iolo. I am serious! Sentri laughs.
I miss that fellow!
Say, Shamino, art thou still spending thy time dressing in women's clothes?*
Or art thou wasting away thy life in a healer's den, now that thou art in thy middle ages?*
Careful, friend. Those are fighting words!*
Sentri punches Shamino good-naturedly. And that is all they are, my dear friend. Words! 'Tis good to see thee!
Twould be good to share a joke or two with him!
Ah, my good friend Dupre! Hast thou some good ale on thee?*
Art thou joking? I -always- have ale!*
Then we should have some before someone else does!
Twould be a pleasure. However, I must be prudent and save the ale for when we need it.*
Sentri feels of Dupre's head. Art thou feeling all right, Dupre? Or has knighthood done something to thy brain?
No, but I would be glad to stop in a pub and share a few pints with thee!*
Mmmm! Sounds good to me! Next time we pass a place, let us stop!
I want to see that no-good trouble-maker! He is a knight now, I hear! Sir Dupre indeed!
I never see him much. He stays in that castle of his all the time. He never gets out. No wonder he hasn't a clue what is going on in this country.
One of you wishes to train?
Which of you wishes to train?
Perhaps at a later time.
I am sorry, but thou dost not have enough practical experience to train at this time. Return another day after thou hast slain a few more creatures.
I regret that thou dost not seem to have enough gold to train here. Mayhaps at another time, when thy fortunes are more prosperous.
Thou art already as proficient as I! I am afraid that thou cannot be trained further by me!
On guard! Sentri cries as he draws his sword. ^
forced to respond with the most easily readied weapon . Without a word, Sentri advances upon , swinging his blade in a seemingly wild, yet entirely controlled manner. ^
forced to block his blows to the best of ability. Luckily, Sentri stops just short of striking , which he is often able to do. Slowly but surely, over the course of the training session, blocking improves and to get in a few thrusts of own. ^
agility improves, and the improvement is tangibly perceptible.
I enjoyed that! Sentri exclaims after it is all over.*
