All our plans were tossed to the winds. Rumble’s observation long ago about those canyonlands resonated in my memory. Everyone looked to Merlin, and he quickly sorted out our priorities after a session with his seer’s stone.
Merlin with Nililitil and his armies will return immediately to Laguayil. (The enemy has not yet arrived to lay siege). The High Fairy will lead the fairy troops to Corbelin, which is in imminent danger. (He has ordered the Faerie Queen back to the fairy capital for safety).
The Dromadil pixies will remain here on guard. And will help us.
I was not surprised that Merlin has assigned us to stay with our original plan to descend into the shaft. Each of us – Rumble, Noralei, Dunfallon and I sense our destiny lies below.
Through Dunfallon the Dromadil pixies gifted Rumble with a map of their former strongholds that lay beneath the city of the dark elves.
So far it has proven faithful.
