We'll take the table in the farthest corner, away from the doors.
When the woman approaches them, Melody returns her smile, and says:
"We've travelled far and are hungry and thirsty. If everything you serve smells as good as whatever is in those bowls you just served, it will do us just fine. Use your own judgement, if you will, and bring us the best you have. My maid here prefers meat, if possible, and rare if you have it. My own tastes are a little more refined, and I'll be intrigued to sample your finest dishes."
While we wait for the food and drinks to be served, Melody will brief Goldthorn on what she has learned so far. She'll give a rough translation of the information obtained from the guard leader, emphasising that they seem to be very strict on thieving around here, so until we become more familiar with the place and its ways, best resist any temptation to help ourselves to things that don't belong to us.
When the woman brings their food, Melody makes appropriately gracious noises of appreciation for the fine victuals, then adds:
"We are new in town and will be needing somewhere safe to stay for a few days. Do you happen to have any accommodation available for us? A single room would suffice for our needs, and somewhere to wash and clean the wounds we picked up on our journey. The town guard captain was very complimentary towards your establishment and the welcome you provide to weary travellers."
While we eat Melody goes on to brief Goldthorn on her plans for trading goods and shopping for new equipment, noting that Goldthorn could do with some new clothes and probably some better weapons too. She asks Goldthorn to consider if there is anything else she needs... or wants, and to let Melody know when she spots it as they search the town.
