Marlin steps in with Devia. After his eyes adjust to his infravision, he sees that a couple of middle aged men are smoking some sort of pipe in the corner. The place has the weird, acrid smell that he's familiar with from these sorts of drug dens. They take no notice of Devia or Marlin, and there's little else besides used drug detritus around the barn.
They exit without issue as Kor takes note.
Heading back to the women, the group watches Sterling as he inquires about the drug addicts.
The women respond in Islander. "Very nice to meet the two of you," they say to Sterling and Arienne. When asked about the drug addict, they look at one another. The older woman replies. "There's a few of their type, mostly harmless. The sickness of the poppy has been a problem around here for a number of years. Lots of problems since the civil war. It's been less and less, but still a few here and there that have succumbed to it. Only real problem is if they run out of money they can try stealing things, but usually a good whacking with a stick drives them off. They haven't been a bother to you, have they?"
Let's go do whatever was the last thing that Morlan thought was a bad idea.
