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. 

Day Seven Hundred Eighty Six #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Elijah and I watched as the Leader assembled his men and led them forth out of the hunter village. Their demeanors grim and dark with malevolence.

We fell to prayer and interceded for our host village, and Tomas and Mei.

They weren’t gone more than quarter hour when in burst a troop of men led by Mei. These men rounded up our guards and freed us.

Mei had us on the way back to our hosts and was interrupted in the middle of her explanation by the rattle of gunfire ahead.

She ran on ahead with her men and became the hammer that finished off the hunters against the anvil of Tomas and his soldiers.

Mei had been busy yesterday.
