“We have built this ship — we call it a starship for it travels from one star to another — on Aurial, and it is but one example of the teknology — do you know this word?”


“We have books that talk about technology,” said the Duke, “but it is lost to us how to make such things ourselves. There are some who view it as a child’s tale of wonder, but now I see the old books were right.”

“Yes,” said Jendi, “that is our purpose here. We come to trade nawledge with you. We wish to share what we have learned, and in return we would like to trade for some of the bounty of your land so that we can have fresh food for our voyage.”


“I will have our Baron of Trade call upon your ship and find out what needs you have,” said the Duke. “I am anxious to know more of this information you wish to trade. Do you really give it freely?”
