Noralei knew all the passwords, signs and countersigns employed by Caywyn’s clan. And that secured the audience we needed in which we presented Nimrood’s proclamation.
Cawthrup is the leader’s name and he accepted us readily, or so we thought.
He put a call out around to his people and invited us to stay in the nearby woodlands while they gathered, reasoning that we would be more at home in their confines.
Rumble and Dunfallon accepted the offer without a second thought. But Noralei and I were uneasy with that arrangement. She did wring from him a promise to keep all iron weapons, and even iron farm implements far away from us. (And she took the added precaution of erecting the protective barrier around us for the night).
Thus we passed it peacefully and thankfully our reception with the humans this morning went smoothly. Most of them were glad for the news that they may return to their farms. But there were a few others, including Cawthrup who desire to stay on their new lands.
What does that mean for our mission?
