But nah leys keep acting tough and making our captors even more suspicious of us. This wouldn't have happened if people's pride hadn't gotten in the way. First the dragons send one guy, next they send a company, now they guarantee bloodshed if you don't let them inspect the ship for shit that could hurt them.
How hard is it to say yes the first time? We to not have anything of value for them to take... If for some unfathomable reason you guys think we do, please share.

honestly im getting tired of this pointless grin at the other and try and look all tough and macho. I am gonna go and read some dragon books in a public library full of old dusty tomes. Love to have some scholars to tag along. Just sitting at a table with a few dozen books trying to understand should be more fun then this pointless pissing contest.
You want to end this game. go ahead and freaking piss them off already. I for one will do exactly what i was meant to do. Gather knowledge that might be of some use to us later on.
PS. anyone willing to attend the campaign tell me what hats and role you wanna play so i can send the note to ST.
It's not about pride, though some warriors will think it that way, it's about formality, respect of the rules, manners and doing things via the proper channels. The moment we landed, we knew the dragons are interested in our ship, what with one of their engineers going all gaga, so it was only a matter of time before they want to inspect it. I'm reluctant to do that, but it was inevitable. HAD THEY ASK BEFOREHAND, I would be fine with it, but they didn't. Instead, some random grunt just barges in unannounced and without permission. I don't know about everyone else, but dropping in out of the blue is considered rude unless you're some high rank official doing random inspection. Imagine in RL, if a foreign soldier just walk into another country's military base unannounced, what is the likely reaction? Not to mentioned there was language barrier between the grunts and us, which further increases the potential of a misunderstanding.
Had the role been reverse and one of our warriors just barges in without permission from either us or the other person, shit would hit the fan, we would have instigated a conflict on home soil and you guys would be chewing out the warriors. Again, I'm reluctant, but I'm willing to let the dragons inspect our ship under our supervision. Nobody likes bureaucracy, but like in RL, there are proper channels for situations like these.
