Dunfallon returned on his eagle, which was a minor miracle for we had to change positions. (The eagle was no doubt a great aid on that score). He brought word that the guards will be on standby and will respond to a new password. (And he added that he liked Nimrood very much).
The pixie solved our second problem by opting to remain outside with Geog and Grimace. Not the best solution by any measure, but none could think of a better.
That decided, Caywyn led us around to the secret entrance, and there we had to wait quite some time while a supply train for the trolls passed by.
Inside the guards met us and escorted us in, just in time for a sumptuous meal spread out to welcome us.
As reported Nimrood was overjoyed to receive us and showered honor upon us by placing us with him at the head of the table.
Caywyn was quite moved to see the change in his king and relative. The king for his part waved away the concern for his loss and said that we’ll talk of that and the future tomorrow. For tonight he will only celebrate life.
