We were to have left before now. In fact, we had already set out towards the Low-way in the company of two new guides when a dwarf came running after us. He begged us to return with him for an audience with Artoxon.
(I could not help but notice a twinkle in our pixie’s eye as we accompanied the dwarf back into the capital).
Along the way, I read some replies from the High Fairy. He had contacted the Dromadil pixies who forwarded to the goblin king our request to pay a visit to the forward goblin positions on the Low-way of the dwarves. We have been granted permission to do so.
The High Fairy also added a warning that he gleaned from the Dromadil pixies – we are to beware of the intentions of Artoxon and his dwarves.
So it was with some apprehension that we re-entered the capital and will soon be descending to Artoxon’s apartments.
