(Guess I've been holding up the party? My apologies.) Halasian finally said to Heinrich, "Oi! no need for gun play here. Nobody is a threat and somebody may get hurt. This is afterall, the Gray Hill Inn, a relatively peaceful place. Granted, if a band of Uruks came crashing through the door, that gun of yours may come in handy. But now that you got it a working, can I ask you holster it?" Heinrich looked at the gun, seeming embarrassed that it went off accidentally, being a soldier of Magyr and all. Halasian went on, "You may be a might bit confused by how you have arrived here, but I can tell you, odd things can and do happen." Heinrich thought about plugging the rough ranger with a shot, but decided to hear him out. Halasian went on, "Let me tell you about a time I was off on my own in the wild. I had set camp and had a rabbit on the spit. It was getting close to being done, when three white crystaly columns appeared in the field before me. Now not knowing what was happening, I took the knife I had in hand and threw it at one of the columns. As the knife left my hand, the three columns turned into humanoid folk wearing strange clothing. One had a yellow shirt on, one a blue shirt on, and one a red shirt on. My knife caught the red-shirted man in the chest and he fell dead. The other two assumed rightly so I was hostile, and I was shot with some type of gun similar to the one you posses. Every nerve in my body burned and I thought I was dead. It turned out I was just put into a heavy sleep. When I came to I was strapped to a bed in some very metallic room with lots of lights blinking on the wall above my head. A blonde lady who wore a similar uniforn to the blue shirted man, except it was a skirt that only came down to here, said to a light on the wall, 'Captain, he's awake." Halasian took a drink of his ale and seeing the soldier was getting bored, went on, "Anyway, to summarize, I was somewhere in "space" they said, which didn't make sense to me because I'm in a space right here. But they showed me a window where I was out amongst the lights of Varda, which really confused me. They said it was a mistake I was picked up, because their sensors only detected the heat and light source of my fire. Said there was a 'malfunction' in their sensors. Anyway, they thought their fancy light gadget wiped my memory clean, but though it was at first vague, it came back to me. So Heinrich, you were obviously beamed here by mistake or for another's purpose. But there is no need to carry whatever war or politics that you were a pawn in where you came from here. May you sit and have an ale or two with me and this strange woman. It would be a right bit more peaceful." Halasian downed the rest of his ale and ordered another round of three.
