At the close of our meeting Merlin announced that he would accompany us. We assembled this morning and set Dunfallon the task of selecting which entrance to take into the shaft.
While we made our preparations, the pixie delved into the three we had discovered so far. He kept in mind the size of his friend Grimace and settled on the widest one as the best.
It was a moot point, however, for at the last the troll decided to stay with the allies in order to look for his brother.
We were all saddened by his decision, but understood.
In the midst of our leave taking, a messenger from Laguayil arrived with dire news. An invasion force has arisen out of the canyonlands to the south and is marching on Corbelin and Laguayil.
