We met and talked things through but with no results. None of us felt sure about getting involved with this request without first knowing more. It was helpful when Merlin replied to my recent message and reconfirmed that he had indeed given his approval to the Dromadil king.
Thus we received our first hint as to what it is all about. It is something that the Dromadilians are anxious to keep secret. Small imperfections have been discovered deep under the foundations of the city, especially in and around the area of his palace.
Dunfallon and I met again with the pixie king and took Gibley in with us. We told him that he needed to be more forthright with us before we would agree to any further involvement.
He reluctantly called for his architect to take us down to the lower levels where the dungeons and his treasury are located. There, water was oozing from the base of the walls through the tiniest of crevices.
It was easy to understand the king’s reticence in this matter. And when we saw that Gibley (whom we brought along for the occasion) was too big for the job, we decided between us that the Will’o’the Wisp might be able to fix the problem- if he will agree to help.
On the way back up to the Dromadil audience chamber, I could not but think that the Sprites could have easily done the job.
But then, there are those prejudices.
