The generous deliveryman


Dear Mother,

Klimmek delivers supplies to the High Hrothgar. He regularly brings preserved food items like dried fish and salted meats to the Greybeards. Although Klimmek has been up the mountain many times, he has never been paid for the deliveries. Klimmek does not seem bothered by the lack of payment.

He explains, “Well, it’s kind of an understanding between us. I mean, it just wouldn’t feel right to charge them for a bit of preserved food.” J’Zhirr does not understand what is wrong with collecting payment, after all one cannot live on air. But J’Zhirr knows better than to voice these thoughts out loud.

Lately, Klimmek has not been making any deliveries as his legs are not as strong as they used to be and climbing all the way up the mountain takes its toll. J’Zhirr offers to do it since this one is going that way. Klimmek is grateful for the offer and says to put the food in the offering chest at the top of the steps.
