According to Dunfallon something new has been added to the defenses in the air above. He did not notice it at first. Not on the ground anyways. But once aloft in pursuit of the black birds, their movements made a broad arcing turn, though to his viewpoint all were moving in a straight line. It was then he realized the nature of the enchantment. Anything that enters the space above the border turns back on itself and returns from whence it came.
And when he rejoined us today Rumble confirmed the same situation on the ground. He cannot wait to introduce us to the architect of the defenses along this section of the border.
I am intrigued. And hesitant. For I feel more than ever we need to be off.
