Rumble slipped away last night and I caught him returning in the morning. I was upset with him at first, but he won me over with his explanation.
He had traveled back to where the dead troll lay. The body had not yet turned to stone. So he repositioned it to add to the defenses of the outpost. And as a final touch he covered the whole with daisies.
Caywyn overheard the explanation and heartily approved.
The whole matter held us up and got us off to a late start. But instead of an hindrance it proved to be very fortunate. For Dunfallon says it kept us from falling in with a band of trolls that passed the trail before we arrived on that section.
Their passage was marked by a horrible stench from some refuse they left behind. Noralei and Rumble cleaned it up before we passed on.
Caywyn was impressed.
