A decision has been reached. And it is unanimous. We shall set out from here soon to the crystalline structure. No transport to an area closer to it would be wise. Merlin feels we would be more easily tracked if he were to do so.
Rumble has pulled maps that will give us many options for routes to take. Merlin will mount them on a single parchment with very special abilities that will contain them all.
Under the wizard’s instructions, Dunfallon and Noralei experimented with the red ashes. They discovered that when dropping them on a glass they moved in the direction of the crystalline structure. So, Merlin has fashioned a glass case to carry them.
It will serve us as a sort of compass.
As I finish writing this, I am up on the rampart with our destination in view. And my pendant is vibrating. Is it urging me on or am I shaking under the weight of responsibility?
