Merlin decided that it was time to send us on our way this morning, despite not knowing everything about the seeds and the ashes.
We are reasonably certain we carried it off without being detected. We held Dunfallon back and kept him close to us for now. Once we know more about the tools the wizard has sent along, we’ll feel more confident to allow him to scout ahead.
As it is, it does slow us down a bit for we constantly find ourselves surrounding Rumble whenever he stops and takes out the map to check it. Therein we can see ourselves and precisely where we are in relation to the features showing on the map. It’s a constant source of novelty which may just take awhile to wear off.
And at those times Noralei takes out the case with the red ashes to use it in conjunction with the map to fine tune the selection of the way ahead.
Hopefully we’ll master these tools soon so that we can quicken our pace.
