I felt we have yet to plumb the depths of our situation. Something else lay behind the predicament of these tortured goblins. We needed to continue our exploration here below.
We kept to yesterday’s decision and stayed together. We crossed around the shaft from the barracks offshoot to the treasury one. Immediately upon entry my pendant lit up and floated up to eye level.
Thus I was able to see what none of my companions could. There lining the walls into the treasury were goblins hanging from shackles. The glow from the treasures beyond drew us onward past the pleading voices.
My pendant also allowed me to see the pattern of the way the jewels and coins and precious metals were laid out.
Before I could stop him Dunfallon was down on all fours scooping up some loose coins. Rumble and I scooped him up and carefully replaced the money.
The treasury had been arranged as a nest for a dragon’s egg and the goblins left in place to feed it upon hatching.
We retraced our steps and I composed a message to the High Fairy on the scroll. And summoned Merlin.
