Vana's reaction as Tutain speaks goes from bemused to annoyed.
Surely others will be drawn on their own. As for money, I dont think between us we have enough for much, besides which, I used some on mana potions, which is a necessity for one like me. I'd bet money on elves of many kinds turning up for such a thing though, and news travels fast. Problem is as you say, if anyone tries to use this against us. We'd have to take a gamble with ANYONE, but with this, even more so. Caution, more so than ever, and the temptation of reward at the end of our tasks? That tends to draw anyone who thinks themselves a competent fighter or mage.

Of honor I must speak, these words in which I believe
thou shalt shelter my words in thy heart
