Dunfallon looked a might bleary eyed to me after a night of staring into the seers stone. I can only wonder what I look like today.
We did come up with some interesting observations to report to Merlin. But we could not find him. According to Rumble he had gone out to hire some crew for the ship, but a check by Dunfallon with the tavern where he was holding a rendezvous for sailors revealed no wizard. The proprietor confirmed that Merlin had indeed been there, but had gone off with the only sailor who had showed up.
We did not think anything further about it, believing that the wizard would return soon. Instead we applied ourselves to plotting out our discoveries on maps with the help of Rumble.
This definitely served to solidify our thoughts about the location of our former queen. So, when at last Merlin returned to the inn we were able to share our discoveries with him.
I allowed Rumble to make the report for us. And he meticulously pointed out that the various sightings of the queen coincide with the movements of the Frost Fairies in their incursions. And though we were certain that she is in the western isles we should not overlook the evidence of that foul alliance.
