Burk looks a bit confused by this notion.
they should have presented it as "talking = getting potential recruit to party"
Fighting is the last thing we want, right after walking inside this building.
WMG: Burk knows something they don't.
I'm guessing that burk is now going to refuse to fight even when the hero is attacking them, but he's going to manage to win anyway by being "polite" to the hero. Like openening a "door" for him which is actually a 5th story window.
Watch the hero be Burk's brother. :D
The Hero wishes he was Burk's brother.
I bet Burk couldn't relate to my younger cat.
