The halfing is deep in thought; should she go after the fallen cups or not?
The river is wild and her hooves weren't made for swimming. What would the others say if they knew she lost 3 of them?
NAG, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

What??!! Are you out of your MIND???!!!
Ooohhh, the drama!! Well, have no fear, Dajjal is here! })
Dajjal is the hedonistic Warrior of the Earth, hero to the earth-bound creatures and he told her to come away from the edge... for the cups were lost the moment they fell into the river. Besides, her dress is tattered enough; the river would certainly not improve what's left of her rags...

I dunno... is there?"
}) There's ALWAYS another way...
