We had a bit of a scare, over a false alarm as it turned out. There are black birds and then there is that black bird. I realize that it was due to my failure in properly describing the one to be on the lookout for. It is so much bigger than the normal crow or raven. And it acts in such a suspicious manner that it always calls attention to itself. It practically exudes malevolence.
The Caretaker is satisfied with the swiftness of his troops in reacting to a threat. So, I guess we can consider it in a positive light overall.
Dunfallon returned with Cluyjil just as the emergency was ending. He brought with him five different green crystals that he collected along the way. The pixie and Noralei will test each one.
We are hopeful that one will prove to be what we are looking for.
