There were no qualms about allowing Cluyjil to descend down into the well past the pixie habitations and over to the troll domain underground. It proved a might tight at a couple points but the dragon did not appear to mind.
The trolls had heard of our coming and their leading chieftains came out to greet us. They cast appraising glances Cluyjil’s way and Dunfallon leaned on the dragon as a way of signaling that he belonged to us.
They listened respectfully to Merlin as he laid out his concern for the Sprite village to the North.
The trolls confirmed that they indeed had an operation ongoing up in that area and agreed to hold up further excavation until things could be investigated. Merlin thanked them for their understanding and asked permission to return soon to help them find a solution for both parties’ needs.
I felt good about the mutual respect evident in our meeting. And was glad to be off so soon.
But Merlin had one more request. He thought it good (I believe Dunfallon may have suggested it) to stop by Laguayil and pick up an endorsement from Nililitil for Noralei.
Since we had three days yet to get to the hearing, I approved.
