Glinda nods at your comments about safety. "Yes. We do the best we can with what we have, mind you, but our knowledge is pretty skimpy. To my knowledge, no working here has ever gotten sick from the dust, but we will accept any of your recommendations and do our best to put them into practice. Here, let me help you carry some of that."

You must not have tried much with your 'link or you would have seen that the matrix connections are very weak and almost non-existent most of the time. I would recommend contacting me for an escort when you want to come down, at least until you get more used to the way. And the people. Right now you are an outsider. Suspect. Of course, being with me or Sian does not really earn you a lot of points down here, either. Some things just never change."

"I think you do not really understand how little access to the outer city we have. I do not have other sellers to take your product and pass it on. Not yet, anyway. My plan for now is to bring you clients. You make your product and tell me where you will be and I will guide people to you. Is that satisfactory?"
