Well, at long last some of the mystery in which Merlin has shrouded his plans has been revealed.
Fliget and the new regent for the city were taking us on a tour to show off all the improvements when word was brought up that the long awaited guest had arrived and was outside the canyonlands gate.
The wizard begged to be excused from the party, but rather than go on without him, all of us chose to accompany him down to the gate.
Gibley the goblin spotted the mystery guest first. And his look of astonishment left his mouth agape. There at the gate was Gibley’s uncle.
Merlin greeted him warmly, then made the introductions all around to Glossom the chief of the goblin dragon handlers.
This time the uncle greeted his nephew in what we only could understand to be warmth between goblins – a stiff embrace.
Then, Fliget moved everyone up to the city’s council chambers and thus began our council of war.
(Thankfully another feast was not proclaimed).
