Tollee should have seen this coming ah well even though she didn't evaluate this far ahead before making her decision it's still worth it
but what to do, what to say
well, Auralius didn't swear her to tell everything she knew, just to answer his questions
"The humans used to ride us, we're smart and fast and able to handle difficult terrain although not as well as a cliff sheep, and I think we helped with hunting, too.
My friend brought me here, we have an allied species that can travel the Sea" - please don't let her be revealing this too early and to the exact wrong person - "but we ourselves don't accompany them, ever, really, my being here is wildly out of the ordinary and for all I know this is the first time any member of my species has ever left Lidian.
To answer your question about my purpose here, my people have been in a state of subjugation under another species for the last few generations - puppet leader, yearly population culls, enforced illiteracy and ignorance - and I'm offering our help on behalf of us to whoever wants to help us re-attain independence."
What did he say? Summer Realm not all cold, Winter not all warm, she'll remember that, that's strange. And before that, Spring green. Got it.
