We have joined with our allies on the crater rim where they have set up their camps. Nililitil invited us into his pavilion for however long we stay in the area.
And who knows how long that may be.
But perhaps of more concern – our enemy remains a mystery. We gathered together at the suggestion of the High Fairy in the camp of the Faerie Queen to discuss this.
In particular, we fairies, wanted to hear how the Dromadil pixies and the Laguayilian elves defeated the dark elves so long ago. Both agree the deciding factor was the resistance of the pixies behind the scenes. And they confirm that this location, the site of their operations, was the original capital of the dark elves – but nothing remains of its former magnificence. For then, it was a city of multiple towers, seven to be precise. Even in the ruins after the defeat of the dark elves, they stood proudly. A great veil had been drawn over the area as the victors departed and those defeated were left to fester in their shame.
A fairy captain was about to pronounce the name of this sad country when Navril leapt to his feet and silenced him.
Then the elf of light declared that we must discover what had became of the dark elves and then we just might know our true enemy.
I stood up and agreed with Navril.
Other than our experience with the elf sailor Hawk, no one else has encountered any dark elves in this land that no one will name. So I proposed that I take my group and descend into the shaft to investigate.
