My memory returns again and again to the shadowy figure that stood behind me at the height of the battle. I only caught a glimpse of it as it was disappearing. Was it actually there? Friend or foe? Were we being observed? Evaluated?
Dunfallon recalls his eagle swerving to avoid something when they were diving on the wolf. At the time he dismissed it as one of the dwarves. But now he knows it was much too large for one of them and he shares my concern over the mystery.
An even bigger mystery involves the location of the troll army we observed days ago. It seems they should have reached this outpost long ago. Gilgorgon assures us none have been sighted before the troll and the wolf attacked yesterday. He sent out some of his dwarves this morning with Rumble. And they report all is clear.
And we await word from the High Fairy – do we stay? Or do we move on?
