As we were nearing the territory held by the goblins our dwarf guides bid us goodbye and headed back down the Low-way. I marvel when I think about how quickly we return by a route that originally took us a long time to traverse.
However our advance was slowed once again when we reached that section of the Low-way which is joined and crossed by a series of passageways. Dunfallon insisted upon searching each one.
As we waited for him outside the third one he came running back in great excitement.
He had found what he is sure is a dragon’s lair as there were droppings and signs of conflagration throughout.
Rather than follow that passageway out to the surface we decided to continue on to the goblin controlled junction and ask them about dragon sightings.
We hoped that the goblins ahead had already received their orders from their king back in the shaft regarding allowing us access. Otherwise our situation was going to face another barrier.
