Today was a day of preparation. And for the first time the maps produced by Rumble were proving their essential worth. We all poured over them with Caywyn’s help to plan our route to the capital.
The Captain marked up my copy with what he thought would keep us far away from the troll camps. He intends to accompany us most of the way, but has a couple of errands to complete at various points. Of course, I offered our services for these tasks or at least to wait upon his return. But he insisted that it would not be necessary – adding that the tasks would require someone more of his stature.
This comment did not sit well with Dunfallon and I had to head him off before he expressed his obvious disapproval.
Instead, the planning session being at an end, I offered our services to improve the defenses of the outpost. To this Dunfallon and the others fell to with relish. And between us we greatly improved the security of the outpost and especially of the tower.
