"O Master, I penetrated the big white temple as you ordered. I spent a full day there, unseen and unheard. You wanted me to discover the number of acolytes who are called Paladins of Dauros? They are very few, Master, but they are quite easy to find. First you hear the rumble of their footseps and the clanking of their armor from far away -- and then you see them. They are enormous! They scare me, Master! I get goosebumps all over my tail just thinking about them. They are too imposing, austere, and so virtuous! They are like beating rods! I don't want to go back to the big white temple, please, Master, please!"
