The Low-way is noticeably larger, both wider and higher now. Consequently we have avoided the middle course and hugged along the walls to the side. It would not do to be caught in the middle by any approaching dark elves.
Dunfallon took Willie and kept to our front. He was looking for side passages with access to underground streams that our former guides told him about.
The pixie is eager to search them out. In particular there is one they say that should get us into the stronghold undetected.
When the light from Willie’s cage dimmed quite noticeably Dunfallon returned to us. He was concerned that the Will’o’the Wisp had expired. But I could see his breath fanning his whiskers, so I knew he was just in a deep sleep.
I gave the pixie permission to loosen his cloak and let him proceed with the light from his armor. And Noralei took over the care of Willie.
