Eric: Trace, I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but…
Eric: Templar laws have, in recent years, made it a crime for slave traders such as myself to free our slaves voluntarily.
Trace: What? Why? What kind of evil person would make a law like th… it was me, wasn’t it?
Eric: …Yes. If Mike and Evals were ever caught by the Templar in the future, and it was discovered that I released them…
Eric: Let’s just say it could potentially put me or my family at great risk. I have no desire to see the inside of a Templar dungeon.
Eric: Technically, it’s illegal to even sell to someone knowing they intend to release the slaves. However, for Kathrin’s sake… I am willing to take that risk if you are.
Eric: On one condition: It has to be a legitimate trade.
Eric: We will go to the village of Edinmire, near the Tiger border, and I’ll document that I sold the slaves. After that, we can all go our separate ways from there.
