I'm with you there my friend. But we have an easier time if we get on their friendly side. Plus they seem malnourished, as does the boy that is with them, and isn't halfling society all about hospitality? We can't just fall to their level, and beat them down to investigate. If I have learned about anything in my years in Hillsfar it is that not every human condones the abuse of other races. Some work with the Lord, some accept and ignore it, but some work against it. If we can get just ONE carpenter to tell us something peacefully, I am gladly feeding all of them several days. And remember, I am chief inspector Cromwell, and it would be best if you and the turtle would stay a bit out of sight. Speaking of, have you seen Guro?
