The return of Noralei today did much to dispel the depression we have been under since the battlefield. Merlin brought her to us himself. We all thought she looked marvelous. (Especially Dunfallon). But she demurred and would say only that the time she spent in Merlin’s castle was responsible for any changes in her humble appearance. At that point she turned and thanked her host for all the new things that she had learned from him.
This prompted Rumble to ask Merlin just what had the project been that required her skills as a smith.
Noralei immediately begged the favor of Merlin to be the one to answer him.
Merlin assented with a smile and a nod.
And she unfolded a great bolt of cloth which stood tall on its own and soon surrounded the entire party. And she stated simply that it will keep all fairies within its confines safe from the effects of any iron weapons.
I was stunned by the timeliness of this remedy.
How did our wizard friend know?
