Script Details

t came as a shock to realise that he was still on his feet. For an instant Durren had been convinced he was plummeting, through a bottomless tunnel of streaming purple and gold, the walls of which might have been close enough to touch or as far away as the stars in the sky.
Yet here he was, upright, with apparently all of his limbs still in their right places, and around him a scene quite different to the one he'd been seeing only moments before.
Durren had half expected that they'd materialise right in the centre of the village, surrounded on every side by angry, knife-wielding rat-kind. He had already slipped his bow from his shoulder and his free hand was twitching towards the quiver on his back. Wherever they were, though, it certainly wasn't a village, of rat-kind or of anything else. He was confident, in fact, that they'd arrived in a forest. The one thing causing him to doubt was that his head was still spinning, in a way that made his vision blur and his stomach altogether too eager to spill its contents.
Durren took a deep breath, and slowly the spinning steadied. Of the others, only Hule looked worse for wear. Tia was already casting those pale eyes of hers over the surrounding trees, as though at any moment one of them might reveal itself to be an enemy, while the wizard, Areinelimus, gazed about with all the trepidation of a child trying to pick out the perfect picnic spot.
“Where are we?” Durren asked, since he felt as though someone should say something. But he also spoke softly, because, like Tia, he was half ready to believe that there might be rat-kind hiding behind every tree.
Tia pointed to a gap in the dense foliage high above. “There's smoke,” she said.
Durren followed her finger. Sure enough, upon the patch of blue sky were traced wavering lines of grey-white. He didn't understand the significance at first, but then it came to him. Smoke meant fires and fires meant people—or, in this case, rat people. At least they wouldn't be wasting half the day wandering lost in this forest before their quest even began.
The dwarf girl, meanwhile, was still glancing around the clearing with obvious fascination. Perhaps feeling Durren's eyes on her, she turned towards him. With a timid smile, she held out her hand, as though they'd just stumbled into each other at a formal banquet. “I'm Areinelimus,” she said. “After my grandfather. But no one ever calls me that. All of my friends call me Arein.”
Something, perhaps only the eager way in which she'd said it, told Durren that in truth no one had ever called her Arein. He hoped she was a better wizard than she was a liar, and the thought made him feel unexpectedly sorry for her. “Good to meet you, Arein,” Durren said, shaking her outstretched hand. “I'm Durren Flintrand.”
“Oh!” Her eyes widened. “Like the Luntharbour Flintrands? The merchant family?”
“I'm a distant cousin,” Durren said hurriedly.
But Arein continued undeterred. “I heard they even lend money to princes and kings, and that they own half of Luntharbour, and…”
“I wouldn't know about any of that,” Durren told her.
“Oh.” She looked crestfallen. Then, abruptly, her former good cheer was back. “Well, anyway, it's nice to meet you, Durren Flintrand.”
“I am Hule Tremick,” the fighter announced suddenly, in a manner that suggested he wasn't entirely happy that others were being paid attention when he wasn't. He was careful to pronounce every syllable of every word, as though speaking was something he had to put considerable thought into.
“Hello, Hule,” Arein said, and Durren nodded in acknowledgement.
That left only Tia. Durren thought at first that she'd vanished, but then he noticed her standing a little way off, beside one of the thicker trees, her cloaked silhouette merging almost perfectly with its trunk. He sensed she'd been following their conversation, though nothing about her posture gave the impression of interest.
