GILGAL, garrulous and puffy, is crafting (sewing, candle making, manuscript copying, metallurgy). Joined for money to buy a boat and just hit the sea, man. Wants to do something meaningful before death. Cultist notably composes lovely poetry in head. Useful because can forge beautiful weapons, armor, and jewelry. Reaction: tells you to go get some coffee.
