Cale again recites the tale of his wayward brother, Herk, and the girl who he believes led him astray.
"I have been told," he says in conclusion, "that women are more dangerous than men.
"And I'm beginning to believe it, too," he adds, looking Her Grace right in the eye. "Why, a smile like yours alone could drive a man to any manner of rash behavious, did he not watch himself carefully."
Dieter the Deathless, anger-fueled fighting machine.
The duchess says she is sorry she hasn't heard either of those names, nor have her companions.
"So tell me more about your companions?"
The duchess, her companions, and Cale are sitting at one table. The rest of the party is sitting at a nearby table. Those closest can hear the conversation. Agh-ubar is sitting in the chair closest to Cale and the duchess.
Amadeus wishes he had done heroic deeds to speak of.
"Ah, well, perhaps in time," he thinks to himself, sipping quietly at his wine; "Who knows what good fortune, a well-cast spell and a shield-wall of doughty fighters to sacrifice in front of me might enable me to achieve..?"

Lögmaðr does not have any tales of heroism under his belt that he could bring into the conversation, and the ambush he suffered that left him without a steed would definitely not fulfill the requirement of being "heroic". Thus, the Paladin will remain quiet unless spoken to during this round of drinks.
I'm going to assume that enough folks share their exploits that the duchess will be reasonably impressed.
She shares that he has a proposition for a courageous band of freelancers such as yourselves. There have been some giant lizards harassing the area around Atwain (about 3 days travel South). If your band was to take care of the problem, she could pay each person 100 gp, plus of course any spoils you might find in their lair.
"My magic is at your disposal," says Amadeus with a polite bow; "Are you perchance possessed of any further intelligence regarding said lizards? Is 'lizards' all they are? I have heard many tales of strange and wondrous creatures inhabiting these lands."

"As my companions have proposed to complete the task, I will join them as-well." Lögmaðr smiles at the members of his group and then to the countess. "You have my word on it. I, like our good magician here, would also like to know more about our foe first though."
This is my quest, to follow that star ... No matter how hopeless, no matter how far ... To fight for the right, without question or pause ... To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause ...

"Giant lizards, you say? From the verdant bile of their gizzards can be procured a most sublime and magical encaustic! — you have but to point us in their direction and we shall bring them to heel!" And with that, Quasmus quaffs the last draught of Drelhek-spirit.
We've stalled a bit, it seems like there is a consensus of going after the lizards. Does anyone wish to get any supplies or accomplish anything else before leaving the city? You could leave this afternoon, or spend the night and leave the next day.
